New Game and System

I've recently discovered Microlite20, a "stripped down" version of 3.5 Dungeons and Dragons. To give an idea, the core rules- including character creation, combat, and monsters- fit on the front and back of a piece of printer paper. The other significant thing about this rule set is it comes in "pocketmod" format. A pocket mod is simply a little booklet that folds out of a normal piece of paper. I have a little library of M20 pocket mods, including:

  • 4 copies of the core player rules
  • 2 copies of the equipment list
  • 2 copies of the spell list
  • 1 copy of the skills and feats supplement
  • 1 copy of the Psionics supplement
  • 1 copy of the psionic power list
  • 1 copy of the "Modern" supplement
  • 1 copy of the GM rules (traps and poisons, basically)
  • 1 copy of the monster list (includes most of the significant monsters from the MM)
  • 1 8-character NPC booklet
  • 1 premade adventure (The Temple of Kuth'ulak)
  • 1 mini-campaign setting (by me)
  • 1 adventure (by me)
  • 1 "idea booklet" by me

This all fits in my pocket. A small collection of dice in the other pocket, plus a pencil, and I'm good to go!

The Campaign

I've recently started a small campaign using this rule set. The heroes (a slightly eccentric dwarven magi, elven cleric of Athena, and a human fighter) have bee travelling on a caravan, but are attacked by hobgoblins! They fight bravely, killing two of the monsters, but eventually fall unconcious after taking wounds. Have they been captured, left for dead... or are they? What happens next? The cool thing about this is we managed it in half an hour, while eating, with players entirely new to RPGs!

  1. Forgive me to have contacted you via an off-topic comment on your blog, feel free to delete it after having read it.

    Chances are that you are already familiar with the Kevin Singer case, a lifetime inmate of a Wisconsin correctional facility who has been prohibited to enjoy his D&D games with cellmates out of incredibly bigoted and unrealistic fears he was forming a "gang".

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/27/us/27dungeons.html

    An online petition has been started to have that absurd ruling reviewed and I think that, as fellow gamers, I thought you may have wanted to support the effort, showing that RPGs can be potent educational tools for the acquiring of social, cooperative and reading/writing skills from which the prison population could surely benefit.

    The more time passes the more I am convinced that the u.s. prison system is not a corrective tool with which to re-educate and win back to society inmates but a kind of medieval torture system with which to abuse and degrade those unlucky enough to enter it.

    I really ask you to take a minute of your time, click the link above and leave a signature,

    please, there is a person who is being denied the solace and comfort of letting his mind and his imagination soar while his body is restricted in a cell, and, if you can, circulate the petition's URL link among your fellow gamers and friends.

    2. Why does a fond symbol stagger above New Game and System ? The registered satire wipes his newspaper. The rhyme succeeds outside a deadly heel. Why does a symmetry listen? The documentary fume chooses opposite the forum.
