Re: Microlite2020?

One thing I noticed right off the bat is that either the Arrays are a bit anemic or the Point-Buy is too OP. What I did was set up a quick spread sheet to tally up points when using the Point-Buy system. Then I made a copy in reverse that takes stat values and calculates the amount of points you wo...

Re: New? Introduce Yourself Here!

I'm called ravensron. Been playing D&D since '75, so to me all the incarnations and official "new" editions are just somebody's houserules. Currently, insofar as I ever get a chance to run a game, use my rules based on M20. It's always great to run into someone who has been playing as long as I hav...

PS- In the racial background lists...
Instead of con-woman, which kinda implies only females are unscrupulous, how about con-artist?

Good catch! Changed in Draft 5. Thank you very much for mentioning it.

Re: Microlite2020?

Yay! My initiative idea is there as an option! :3 It's a good rule that worked well in playtest. I still don't really like the term Body Points. I think I'll call them Constitution Points instead. I've been using the term since 1977 -- when I stole borrowed the term and the concept from the first e...

I'm Aaron, fiction author and also player and DM of BECMI/1E/2E back in the day. Looking to get back into gaming in 2020.

Welcome! I've read some of your short fiction. I based (loosely) a character on the hero of "Bonebearer": a paladin charged with destroying necromancers.

Re: Microlite2020?

Here's Draft 4 of the Microlite20 2.0 rules. Major changes/additions: 1) Each class now has three "class abilities" (previously called "class powers" ) instead of a different number for each class. 2) Fighters lose their multiple attacks (which are generally a pain in play) but gain adding their lev...

Re: More m20 Thoughts

You can cast spells a certain number of times before you need to rest, as detailed in the chart below. You regain all expended spell slots after completing a short or long rest. .... | Level | Maximum Spells Known | Slots (1st)| Slots (2nd) | Slots (3rd) | Slots (4th) | |:-:|:-:|:-:|:-:|:-:|:-:| | ...

Re: Microlite2020?

I've finally had a chance to do some more writing (instead of just playtesting) on Microlite2020. Here's the latest drafts (yes, drafts, I decided that a separate "Old School Edition" made more sense that trying to combine the rules.) Major changes: The separate Microlite20 2.0 Old School edition. L...

Re: Microlite2020?

And for the love of Batman, please do for mage spellbooks what the D&D Next playtest promised (and I'm still irritated about that it's gone.) I missed this the first time around. I don't remember this but I only looked at a couple of the 5e playtest packets (and no longer seem to have even those). ...

Edit: So I dug some more on the site and found M20 Fifth. Didn't realize there was other versions made. Thanks.

I haven't tried m20 Fifth, but I've heard it works very nicely.
