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.
