  1. I'll keep you in mind Todd. Glad your enjoying it. Rod
  2. I'll be there as well, so if there are any questions regarding the future of Classic Fantasy, I may be able to provide some answers. Rod
  3. No worries. There are currently no plans for new methods of Character creation. Rod
  4. If there are any Spanish fans here, Mythras Classic Fantasy is currently crowdfunding at https://www.verkami.com/projects/26008- ... ra-mythrasAs of this message, there are 8 days remaining and has reached funding, so everything else is stretch goals. The book is integrating the complete Expert Set. So all the Classic Fantasy goodness under one set of covers.Rod
  5. I'm glad I saw this post Newt. I just backed your kickstarter. Looks fun and I'm glad to see it doing well. Rod
  6. I'm backing this myself and would love to use it for Classic Fantasy.
  7. It really depends on what the spell did in AD&D as to what gets boosted in Classic Fantasy. For the most part, anything that had effects that increased per level, are instead increased per Intensity in Classic Fantasy. So, some spells might only see their damage get an increase, while others, like Illusionary terrain for example, see their Area of Effect, Range, and Duration all increase. What I did different from the first edition of Classic Fantasy however is that where in the first each effect had to be increased separately, in the new version increasing Intensity increases all var
  8. Hello Classic Fantasy gamers.I'm looking for a few additional playtesters for Classic Fantasy. Particularly for the upcoming Unearthed Companion (new classes, spells, miniatures combat options, and variant spell casting system), but also input on the World of Greymoor (new deities, realm spells, additions to Ships and Shield Walls, etc.)I need people with an existing group that are currently playing so these options can be tested in play. However, if you are experienced with Mythras AND with Dungeons and Dragons, let me know, I may be able to use you on a fact-checking level.Drop me a PM with
  9. Camouflaging oneself with foliage, mud. etc. to gain a bonus to Stealth rolls in the wilderness. Think Arnie in Predator. or any number of military movies or real-life events.
  10. Is this Mythic Babylon 5? OMG This is Awesome!!! Mythic Babylon 5. I can't believe it. OMG. My favorite Scifi comes to my favorite game!!! OMG... OMG. 😉 Rod OMG
  11. With regards to Lightning Bolt, the text reads that all targets within the 10' path take the damage (which is based on that found in the Spell Damage Table) to 1d6 Body Locations if I remember right. Also, in the upcoming Companion, I have several new rules for Luck Points. One states that a spell caster (semi or otherwise) may spend a Luck Point to regain all spent personal Magic Points. Not Magic Points from items. This may only be performed once per day for each Rank attained beyond 1 and requires at least a few minutes of rest, so cant be used during combat. Because characters gain a
  12. When I was writing the BRP version of Classic Fantasy, I playtested it with my group by playing through Against the Giants. We had a blast. We intend on continuing the adventures of Valamir, Sorack, Lorissa, Alexandra, Lilly, and Rengarth later this year by finishing up the giant saga, and moving on to D1-3. Obviously, using Mythras Classic Fantasy. Rod
  13. Unfortunately, Chaosium's management at the time (not the wonderful crew running things now) were very difficult to deal with and all of my emails went unanswered. The odd thing is that during its run, Classic Fantasy was their best selling non-Cthulhu monograph, so it mystified me that they just didn't seem to care. Eventually, I gave up and moved on. For what it's worth, Mythras Classic Fantasy is the spiritual successor to the BRP version, and a much more complete and well supported product.
  14. For the record, playing Classic Fantasy is nothing like "playing" D&D. That would imply that Classic Fantasy is just another of the many D&D retro-clones that can be found in print. A much more accurate statement would be "If I want to play D&D, I play D&D. But if I want to play in a D&D type setting with a more realistic and exciting set of rules, I play Classic Fantasy." 😉 Rod
  15. That's odd, seems to be working fine for me. Maybe it's incompatible with some versions of excel?
  16. There is definitely a place for the Anti-Paladin in Classic Fantasy, as I have already written up the class for the Companion. It is based on the Dragon Magazine version, with the one exception being that I down-play the mustache twirling Snidely Whiplash feel in favor of a terrifying death knight. They lack all of the honor typical of the paladin, even so much as possessing the back stab abilities of the thief. They can control undead and even lead undead armies. They're nasty. Rod
  17. Still hoping for this year, but that's all I can say at this time. We'll see.
  18. Behind schedule, but still working on it. Change of jobs has really slowed down production.
  19. Now, some new stuff rescued from the archives of my old storage devices. While I have nothing against the Sanity rules of Call of Cthulhu, I don't think they are necessarily suitable for all horror settings when simulating Fear. Another horror RPG that I believe does it just as well, if not better for my uses, is Pacesetter's Chill. Years ago, I translated the Fear Check rules to BRP for a yearly Halloween BRP Chill game that I ran for more then a decade. Here are those rules, along with the rules for Sensing the Unknown. These rules are written by Michael Williams and only converted

    Years ago, I ran a yearly Halloween BRP Chill game for more then a decade. Here is one of the adventures that I converted to BRP during the playtest. The adventure is only converted by myself, and I do not claim ownership of the material.

  22. Sometimes during the playtest of BRP, I would get the urge to create a character from the strangest of places. This is one of these situations as creating Erin Esurance stemmed from watching too many television commercials. However, she makes a pretty good BRP character just the same. This is another file that already exists in the Downloads section that I'm linking to here. Rod
  23. While I never owned any of the toys as a kid, The Micronauts was my absolute favorite comic book, and still is to this day. Baron Karza is an absolute bad ass, and was a real challenge to create in BRP. This is another file that already exists in the Downloads section that I'm linking to here. Rod
