  1. Another option is to find some new images that are in the public domain. Wikipedia has a webpage abut that subject: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Public_domain_image_resources You can also go to https://www.google.com/advanced_image_search and at the bottom of the form, at the "Usage rights" option, choose "Creative Commons licenses". Then enter "dragon dnd" as the words you are searching for and all the images that you'll find are under a CC license. In fact you will find one decent image of a dragon: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DnD_Dragon.png
  2. Yes, I can understand that it might seem like waste of time. I also realize that if you want to make it look nice, you'll have to redo the layout and that might take quite some time. Just removing the art leaves the index intact but also create a lot of "empty holes" in the text.
  3. Can't you just remove the art from the file? I just did a quick test and opened the pdf file in LibreOffice Draw and removed some of the images and then did a export to PDF. Worked like a charm. I did notice that the navigational bookmarks disappeared when I saved it to PDF but that might be a configuration issue. /Peter
  4. Would this Word sheet from the download section work? /Peter
  5. Version 3.5.1


    This is the third revised edition of a document which is part of a project, which I now, after many years in the back burner have picked up again: to create a magic system for d100 systems that would make it easy to port d20 OGL spells into the d100 eco-system. The system is designed to be able to coexist with other magic systems for BRP, such as sprit magic and divine magic. This is the second document of the project. The third is a compilation of converted and adapted d20 OGL spells from the d20 SRD and it's still in the works. /Peter Brink
  6. Version 1.0.0


    This is a short text I wrote a long time ago in order to provide an "in world" explanation of how sorcerers believed magic worked. The knowledgeable reader will recognize most of the ideas in the text, because they are not new. It did fit into the project I had at the time, which I now, after many years have picked up again: to create a magic system for d100 systems that would make it easy to port d20 OGL spells into the d100 eco-system. Hopefully this text will find some use. /Peter Brink
  7. Hmm, I think games that rolls a d20 or a d100 and then add the skill level, and requires a 20+ or 100+ result to succeed, still qualifies as d100 compatible since they just changed the math. That being said I don't consider the Rolemaster system to be a BRP/d100 compatible system, but I (IMHO) do think that Kult is a BRP compatible system as is "Western". But the OP is the one who lay down the rules....
  8. There's also another Swedish game, "En Garde!" which has similar rules to Kult (mainly because the authors of En Garde also wrote parts of Kult). The setting is 17th century Europe. This game is not the same as En Garde by Paul Evans. The of course, we have "Western". It's clearly a BRP relative, even if you roll high as in Rolemaster. The setting is the American Wild West. In fact, as a side note, most Swedish RPG:s are BRP related. Drakar och Demoner had the same position on the Swedish RPG market as Dungeons and Dragons had on the US market in the golden days of table-top RPGs, s
  9. Mutant belonged to the BRP-family so it's setting should be a d100-setting. Later version drifted away from d100. The original version of Kult was a BRP like game. Later versions less so. IMHO, The game mechanics of Trudvang Chronicles are more like that of the CRPG Fallout. The setting Trudvang was originally written for use with Drakar och Demoner 6 which was a BRP like game (see link to info about DoD below). So I would say that Trudvang is a d100-setting even if Trudvang Chronicles aren't really a d100 game. Ereb Altor was the original setting for Drakar och Demoner, so tha
  10. If Harnmaster is considered a D100 system then Harnworld would qualify as a fantasy setting.
  11. Privateers and Gentlemen. By Jon Williams. Published 1982 by Fantasy Games Unlimited. Age of Fighting Sail (1755 - 1815). I'ts a bit weak on detailed background info but does give details on trade, ships and ports from across the world.
  12. RQG is RQ2 compatible by design, the intention is to be able to easily reuse the supplements brought back into print by the RQ2 reprint kickstarter project. I haven't seen any traces of RQ3 yet, but then I've haven't played RQG yet...
  13. Thanks for the all comments. When looking closer I realized that the formula is quite simple. It's the result of (((hp- 6) / 3) rounded) added to the starting value for each hit location. That's easy to implement. The reason I asked in the first place is that i'm modifying a couple of spreadsheets, that I created way back when I was playing RQ3 a lot, to RQ2.
  14. Hi, The RQ3 rules had a table with percentile values per hit location per creature type. Has anyone done something similar for RQ2? I have a vague memory of such a discussion (maybe on the old mailing list ;)) /Peter
  15. Please correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it so that a swordsman (using only a single weapon) that parries with his sword, after having made an attack, gets a -30 modifier? And if he had used a shield or a parrying weapon he wouldn't have peen penalized. Also I thought that the difference between how shields and weapons HP work was the norm and not an optional rule. But I might be mixing things up...
