Re: GP-as-XP Rewrite

I totally understand the reasoning, but in cases like this the changes are so minor (adding about six sentences to one page, deleting four sentences from another) that a whole supplement would seem like overkill. Indeed. Further, the changes are so minor that you don't have to write them down at al...

Re: GP-as-XP Rewrite

Toaster, I hate to have to tell you this, but you can't redistribute modified versions of the Core Rules without removing all the artwork (which isn't Open Game Content), changing the name of the game on the title page, and adding your new name in the Copyright section. The entire text of the game ...

GP-as-XP Rewrite

For the last year or so, my on-and-off Basic Fantasy campaign has used a lightly-rewritten version of the core rules that officially incorporates the GP-as-XP rules into Basic Fantasy. Call me hidebound if you wish, but I just like my character advancement to require rivers of gold. :-) I finally po...

Re: Community Adventure Generation

If this'll be a funnel module, it might be a good idea to have one (or even several) reasons why 12-20 zero-level commoners have decided to go somewhere as dangerous as a dungeon. One funnel rationale I've heard was (literally) that a hole in the ground opened up and swallowed the party whole. I thi...

Re: Basic Fantasy Character Funnel

My only comment right now is that I've never seen the term "Iron Man" used before to describe "3d6 in order." I ran across it a year or so ago in a ridiculously complete analysis of ability generation methods. find the process interesting, though (as I expressed earlier in the thread) I generally f...

Re: Basic Fantasy Character Funnel

Alright, I've gone through and made some changes. Specifically: 1. Fleshed out the intro to explain "tumbler" procedure, and other uses for the supplement. 2. Reworked the procedures slightly. 3. Rejigged and reordered the tables to fit more neatly (none flow onto another page now). 4. Reformatted t...

Re: Basic Fantasy Character Funnel

Hey Solomoriah, thanks for converting it! I've downloaded it and am making a few changes (hopefully save you a little work on the tables :) ). I'll reup in a day or so when finished.

Re: Basic Fantasy Character Funnel

Hey Solomoriah, no problem. I'm aware of all the legal boilerplate, I just hadn't bothered to do it in the early drafts since I hadn't really thought of submitting it. I certify I am the sole author of this work, authored in 2012 and revised in 2013. I am happy to license it under the Open Game Lice...

Re: Basic Fantasy Character Funnel

Oh, and a question: How would I go about submitting this as an "official" Basic Fantasy supplement?

Re: Basic Fantasy Character Funnel

Uploaded a new version 1.5 , which improves the character generation to avoid "boring" characters (those with no modifiers whatsoever). I've also seen the light of reason and renumbered the tables, and fixed a few typos. You can also read more about the rationale for the Tumbler, and view a few samp...
