Re: If First Level Clerics can't cast any spell then why are there First Level cleric spells?

1st edition AD&D Player's Handbook 1978 by Gary Gygax page 8: "It was initially contemplated to term character power as rank, spell complexity was to be termed power, and monster strength was to be termed as order. Thus, instead of a 9th level character encountering a 7th level monster on the 8th du...

Re: a plan for a solo adventure

A poor man's version of the magic viewer and map scenario is to cut a circle the size of the torch/lantern light area (or whatever works best) in a piece of paper and slide it around, revealing only what the character(s) can see.

Re: a plan for a solo adventure

Searching the internet for "writing solo adventure" is one place to start. The top hit I got was a link to an old article by Steve Jackson, probably the same fellow involved with Fighting Fantasy adventure game books... https://thefantasytrip.game/news/2018/july/writing-a-solo-adventure/ Plus others...

Re: CS1 Castle by the Sea

The “Open Game License” references “New Monsters: A Basic Fantasy Supplement Copyright © 2008” and lists out many unused monsters. There is also a reference to “The Basic Fantasy Field Guide Copyright © 2010-2017” rather than “Basic Fantasy Field Guide Volume 1” Page 37 “12. STAIRCASE” “Locathah” is...

Re: JN1 The Chaotic Caves

It is almost never necessary, nor a good idea, to press ENTER in LibreOffice to push something to the next page. There are formatting tools for that. If the document is coming to me for layout (which is usually the case, as with this module), leave formatting anomalies alone and I'll fix them. Huh?...
