Re: Traps

My inclination is to put the dice in the players hands as much as possible. My personal preference is the opposite. Role before roll. Dice are used only if the situation is not clear. Players who stroll through corridors without care will not get saving throws, a ten foot pole and severe paranoia m...

Re: Wight VS a Magic Bow

Found this on dragonsfoot: Magic bows vs creatures requiring magic weapons to hit From that there seems to be a few options and no-one seemed to be willing to draw a hard and fast rule. Matthew- dragonsfoot gives these options 1) A +2 Arrow shot from a +1 Bow is considered a +3 weapon 2) A +2 Arrow ...

Re: BFRPG Field Guide (monsters)

Well met BFRPGF, I may appear guilty of urging undue codification, to clarify my ideas though I would not like to see habitat, groups or any changes to in the monster statblock or necessarily descriptions and definitely not advocating additional content in the core book.

Re: BFRPG Field Guide (monsters)

Well met BFRPG members, Groups and Habitat would be very useful to have with the monsters in the field guide. I am working on assembling a database of BFRPG monsters with the goal of making habitat based wandering monster tables. http://0x3e.com/bf/monster/ also for finding suitable dungeon fillers ...

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules

Protection from Evil: 1 turn per level not 6 turns. Shield: 5 rounds + 1 per level not 2 turns. Sleep: 5 rounds per level not (4-...

Re: Welcome to the new Basic Fantasy RPG Forums!

Hello Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game forum members.

After re-purchasing the RC I have been planning an old school fantasy game. Found BFRPG the other day and am thinking I may use this instead.

Great work thank you so much all involved.
