A downloadable game

Buy Now$5.00 USD or more

A short booklet containing the kinds of rules I like to run dragon-style games with. Higher health than most retroclones, depleting Luck, simple monsters, and an intuitive AC system. Also features a simple referee section detailing how to run the game.

36 pages, A6 sized.

When this reaches $1000 I will publish a print run.

At $1500 I will hire an artist to do actual art for it.

Every $20 spent on it will be another 10 community copies added into the pool.

I don't quite get combat. You roll under your stat but over your opponent's AC? So, what AC ranges do you use?

if they're unarmored, you don't roll over anything.

Armor only goes up to 4, so at best you're trying to roll over a 4.

OK, thanks.



A ghoulish adventure I cobbled together over the weekend


Bought! Nice work.



character sheet, MADE


Love the game. I couldn't help but noticing there is no character sheet, so I took it upon myself to make one.



Really Nice work ! Any character sheet somewhere perhaps to playtest ?


oh a character sheet would be nice! there's really no one page that fits everything you need for character creation tho


This is neat - clean layout, elegant! Kind of standard mechanics - neat spellcasting, cool Luck mechanic, nice magical item list
