Pits & Perils & More Systems


Our next game exploration is Pits & Perils.  +Chris C. has written an adventure for the system.  When he told me he was going to run it using that system I knew about it, but never looked at it.  Chris said you could fit a character sheet on a note card.  So when I made up my character I used a 4" x 6" note card and it fit with plenty of room to spare.

While it is a simple fantasy RPG, it has some interesting differences.  Most notable, to me, was the combat system.  I wrote the rules on my character sheet, the better you roll (it is a 2d6 system) the more damage you do.  There are variables like if your using a two-handed weapon in which case you get a +1 to your damage.

Our small group is planning on experimenting with other game systems.  I believe +Ken H wants to return to his Monteport setting using the Blood & Treasure system.  And I've been reading and writing adventures for a Dragon Age adventure.  I recently received the core book for Dragon Age and I have the a few Dragon Age 'history' books to help me figure out the background.

I guess I should go.  It's Monday and I've got bills to pay.  Although right now I would love nothing more than to draw a couple maps.
