    I'd agree with the above posts. Not a fan of d20 myself anymore but my first purchase and game was '88 redbox, and having played AD&D2E, 3x and 4, I have to say I would prefer original '88 redbox with some better rules for separate races and classes and skills.

    If no one at the top of the round intends to attack or threaten the other side, I can deal with entire round for this extended posting period. Also, if the party is agreed to flee, then combat ends, and you get to decide how you wish to travel through the forest. The options I see include: ...

    Hi there, very cool to see some game design around here. =) I like your start and overall the rules and definitely the feel, simplistic and reminiscent of, to me, 8 bit console RPGs like Final Fantasy and Zelda. One thing offhand is you could mock up a character sheet and maybe a list of your...

In a Shady Gulch/Coyote trail game (Lone Bountyhunter of the Apocalypse ) and Atomic Highway (Bartertowner Greaser with a proud NASCAR history). Would like to try The Chronicles of Future Earth (BRP).
About Me
Biography:
I'm a late-40's Canuck with probably waaay too much time on his hands :). In year 2 of the re-union tour via after a 25 year hiatus from RL RPGing (due to a really crappy locale for gamer density/resources). I'm not mobile outside of walking distance so I'm limited to online play at this time. I've got Mirc, Skype, Maptool, OpenRPG and am willing to DL other software as needed. There are a bunch of us who play in various groups. Always looking for more. If you want references try looking the following folks up on PnPG games: Chrine, Apostate 2012, Layne, trialbyfireent, Gunhaven. All of these folks have sat at the same table as me for quite a length of time and know me best. Feel free to talk to any of them.
