Re: Microlite2020?

Sounds like a great update - I've always been a fan of the mass combat and whilst I appreciate the abstraction (using the scaling factor), I'm wondering if it would be possible to add any additional examples or templates pls? If complexity around body parts are going to be added, wondering if an eq...

Re: Microlite2020?

My question is, "Do we need the four skills now that we have backgrounds?". Although it feels redundant to me, I may be missing something. They will be gone (at least in initial playtest versions, if not having them breaks things they will probably have to return in some form). I just haven't edite...

Re: Microlite2020?

I also like using a character creation system like this that doesn't give bonuses for Race, but for class. https://www.dndbeyond.com/posts/563-reimagining-racial-ability-scores I read the entire article, but it lost me with respect to Microlite, in the first paragraph: There are over 1,000 unique r...

Re: Retroclone Dragonlance Fifth Age

Has anyone done this before? My google-fu revealed talk of it, and I even found an 8 page summary, but that's about it. I will take any thoughts/advice from folks that played Fifth Age. I don't believe I've seen any retroclones of DL5A. Which is a shame because it is any interesting game -- actuall...

Microlite2020?

It's been about 10 years since the original Microlite20 was released. I'm thinking that it might be time to revise the base game a bit -- a Microlite20 2.0 (or Microlite2020 because I wanted to be cute for this post). Seth spent several years working on his new version of Microlite20. He generally r...

What does "Rules Light" Mean to you?

What makes a game "rights light to you? Low page count? Low crunch? Simple rules? Easy to learn? Easy to teach? Doesn't require players to know the rules to play? Something else?
