Re: ambidexterity

The thing to remember is that its just a game. I sometimes get too wrapped up in it as well and have to call a break to a game if I find myself getting upset by how a game is going. ... BFRPG and other old school gaming styles give the DM a lot of control. If players are unwilling to let the DM rul...

Re: Pets in Basic Fantasy

Nice blog post. I always like playing druids. The thing I dig about basic D&D is if you want to allow a character to have a companion or pet, then could just pick the animal from the monster list and there you go. No crazy Pathfinder-like animal mind-link stuff or special rules for animal advancemen...

Re: Combat with Floor Plans

Thanks for the updates. I've been using some of the rules in this supplement myself in the past year. It's a good looking document. I like all the pictures. As for the Rear Attack rules, I'm considering using the following for my houserules, from 2e's Player Options: Combat and Tactics: ... characte...

Re: Adventuring Supplement (Wilderness, etc)

If it suites the campaign the game master may take this one step further. If the weather conditions are intolerable – it’s cold, windy and wet, for instance – and the characters decide not to take any actions to counter this, the game master may decide that they simply can not get a good night’s sl...

Re: Adventuring Supplement (Wilderness, etc)

Thanks Togo: That sounds a bit like the 1e Wilderness Survival Guide section on "Good sleep vs bad sleep." Though this supplement is more quick and dirty and less codified, I'll consider mentioning some other factors. From the 1e WSG: - character not prone or in relaxed position; lying on bare groun...

I've uploaded revision 7
http://www.basicfantasy.org/showcase.cgi?sid=66

- Wasn't completely satisfied with the breath-holding options, so I dropped those.
- Revised the section on poison.
- Added new sections on effects of terrain and chases in the wilderness.

Re: Cosmology - Organized or Not?

Magical realm: Occasionally known as the astral plane, this is everything that is highfantasy In a recent game of mine, we decided that there is a "magic plane" (the plane where magic weapons can do harm to monsters that are only harmed by such). Following this logic, a magic boot or magic shield c...

Re: How Do Thieves Skills Work?

I play it as is, for the most part. Some allow the Thief options in the optional rules section of BFRPG. I suspect one can use whatever rationale seems best: locks in dungeons are more mysterious and potentially more difficult than your typical lock, perhaps? But again, can adjust for an easier lock...

Re: Cosmology - Organized or Not?

Pretty much I think it's up to the group. If someone wants to port cosmology ideas to BFRPG then why not? Or have a cosmology supplement that covers the major categories. Otherwise, leave it open to anything. My 2 cents.
