Re: What is the deal with the newest DnD????

When I hear newest "d&d" my first thought is to check the downloads here for a new release :D

I don't have any experience with 5e from Wizards, and only look at their new stuff for map tiles, minis and stuff like that if I'm in Books-A-Million.

Re: How do you level multi-class characters?

I think people overcomplicate this by using AD&D terms and ideas for it. In BFRPG you don't have two classes, you have 1 combo-class. In other words, you're not a 1/1 Fighter/Magic User, you're a level 1 Fighting Magic User. You add the XP requirements for both classes to get the requirement for you...

I don't think any of your criticisms of Morgansfort are bad things. Cautious play leads to more survival.

Re: Basic Conversion

Just invert ACs and use BF descriptions of monsters and magic where you can. Don't be afraid to wing it on the rest. BF and rules lite games are much more forgiving that way. 🙂

Re: Question about BFRPG wilderness maps

My advice is keep it simple. Some of the modern (5e or Pathfinder or whatev) maps are pretty, but a basic black and white with easy to read grid or hexes is a lot nicer in play.

Re: RPG Primer and Old School Playbook

I found this book by accident while ordering the last of the BFrpg adventure books on Amazon (I have all the available print books now! :D ). I'm writing up a full review for my new blog, but for now I just have to say that it is an excellent tool for new players. I have a couple friends my age, 14 ...

BFRPG and D&D5e both borrow their AC system from D&D3e. :)

I misread the original post about AC and thought "why adapt that from 5e, they're both derived from 3e and essentially the same."

Re: How do you level multi-class characters?

Thank you for the nice reply. My urges to start tweaking stuff in Basic D&D were what led me to check out BFRPG. I started getting bored with race as class characters and wanted a little variety of options. Other things like ascending AC don't bother me either way. The only big change I've made in B...
