Interest Check--Old School Dungeon Crawl (VAN to BON-E)
« on: September 18, 2008, 02:02:36 PM »
(dusting off an older idea)

There used to be this thing called 'Basic D&D'.  You may have heard of it?  Well, someone's gone back and retooled it slightly, adding just enough from WotC's 3.5e to help playability without losing that ol' kitchen-table feel.

www.basicfantasy.org

Anyone up for a little light hack-n-slash?

I don't have any specific setting in mind for this yet, but folks can expect 'Order of the Stick' style gamespeak, Crushed the Doomed Kitty cheesecake factor, and a few other running gags.  Whether I go for the full 'Final Fantasy/DragonQuest' feel depends on whether people can stand 'cute' monster names and Yggdrasil Leaves.

BF also has an online character generator.  Look under Tools...

So now we've got Basic Role-Playing Game and Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game and gawds know what else.  Even my memory for trivial details no one cares about is going to be taxed keeping all these different games straight.

Assuming I can comprehend the rules, I'm in.

Weren't you in Rubyslipper's BFRPG, ol' friend?  Same rules.
Only this is likely to have a few more silly gags.  Oh, and OotS gamespeak.

THIEF turns to the rest of party: "He hit Roy's AC with that roll?  RUNAWAY!!!"

Hmm.  Thought you had been.  My bad!  Lucky for you, Basic Fantasy is easy and straightforward.  ;D  And free.

*reads*

Okay, got it.  Are we using standard character creation, and is any of the stuff in the Olde Dungeoneer's Almanack allowed?

What do you have in mind?  I wasn't planning on using any of the Almanack material, but I can be a resonable GM.  :)

Hm...

STR 8
INT 12
WIS 11
DEX 10
CON 10
CHA 5

If I can use the Gnome race from the Almanack, I'll go with a gnomish MU.

Plenty of room, so far.  We have a Magic User and a Thief, so either a Cleric or a Fighter would be a good idea.  :)

I'll keep the light on for you!  In the meantime, go ahead and check out the Basic Fantasy site and the character generator.  We haven't started just yet due to GM's busy busy RL weekend.  :)
