Re: Microlite20 and Bounded Accuracy

The earliest versions of D&D were not designed for infinite level progression. OD&D topped out at 10 to 12th level. BX topped out at 14th level. Even AD&D1e topped out at 20th level and the combat tables (not the THAC0 stuff which really wasn't standard until 2e) repeated 20 five or six times makin...

Microlite20 and Bounded Accuracy

I'm reposting (with some minor edits) an old blog post where I considered the impact of the concept of Bounded Accuracy as it applied to my custom m20 games. Maybe here, I'll get some discussion on the topic. If you don't think that the concept of bounded accuracy is desirable, then this topic proba...

I will try to add the current version soon. Unfortunately, it looks like I will be busier than expected for the next 5 days or so. Real life -- again.

No big deal. It doesn't NEED to be added; I didn't suspect it was anywhere except my SD card and my Google Drive until a few days ago.

I really like Dark Heritage. It's one of most interesting Microlite20 variants out there. Great work, IMHO.

Thanks. I did notice that it's here in the archives, although a much earlier version than the current one. There have been a lot of changes since that version was released.

Re: New? Introduce Yourself Here!

Desdichado; name is a literary reference to one of the greatest works of literature in the English language (and tradition) although the author is actually Scottish. There's a lot of reasons why that particular name fits me, most of them subtle or personal in-jokes. The work in question is Ivanhoe b...

Re: What is your favorite Microlite20-based game?

My own kitbashed fantasy and space opera variants, respectively, of course. While the concept of m20 was always super intriguing to me, I found that it still was too mired in D&D-isms to work for my specific setting, so I ended up making some modifications. Then I needed a Star Wars game, and wasn't...
