Re: miniatures & osr games

I recognize some of those figures from early WOTC D&D minis sets. I doubt he has a license to copy and resell them.

Re: Maximum die sizes questions.

Short answer: yes to your first question and no to your second question.

Re: I'm new: after reading rules, why play a human character?

The 10% xp bonus never seemed enough to off-set the few penalties on demi-humans to make Human PCs a viable choice for my players. IMC, I give Human PCs +1 to all ability scores in addition to the 10% xp bonus; this helps level the field among the character races.

Re: Balanced starting party for Morgansfort Old Island Fortress?

I think Old Island Fortress will be a similar experience, they'll just have to keep a leash on Steve who likes to open doors before everyone's ready.

Re: Balanced starting party for Morgansfort Old Island Fortress?

It's always a good idea to have one PC of each class. Giving the cleric a scroll with a couple of Cure Light Wound spells or granting each PC a potion of healing at character creation will help keep them alive if things go south for the party. Also, suggest to them that paying for a hireling or two ...

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

Illusionists, Druids, Rangers, Paladins, Assassins, Half-Humans and Gnomes, plus some of Combat and Thief options (and maybe a little bit of the Magic-User options) would comprise an "advanced" game for me. But that's far off in the future, as far as I'm concerned. I'm focused on getting 3rd Editio...

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

Personally, I'd like to see things like gnomes, half-elves, half-orcs, rangers, paladins, barbarians, monks and multiclass options dealt with in an in-print supplement after Core Rules 3 is released.
