BRP Hording (aka collection)

Recommended Posts

This was by Board-Craft Simulations, Inc. (1980).

This is a boxed package of geomorphic dungeon tiles. It includes a copy of the 16-page Basic Role-Playing rules.

They also published Castle Paths and Village Paths in this line as well.

I got them. It comes with a copy of the BRP booklet, some RQ monster chits, and a mini adventure, with monsters (the same ones as on the crits, what are the odds?), some RQ battlemagic spells, and a map layout.

I'm thinking about getting a copy of the Adventurer's Handbook. Before I purchase it, do you know if it actually has a copy of BRP in it?

I'm not sure, can you jog my memory with a link, image or some such. We are talking about thing's I haven't looked at in over a decade, let alone read or used.

Oh, that one's new to me. But...

For a review try

RPGnet RPG Game Index: The Adventurer's Handbook

From what it says, the book looks to be of limited value. More of a what the RPG scene was like 20 year ago.

If you search on the net, you can find it for around $9 rather than the $13, too.

The BRP booklet, is eBay the only place to find it?

SGL.

They come up on eBay occassionly, and you just have to keep an eye out for them.

Amazon.com has them as well.

Here is the 2002 version, which basically a reprint of the 1980/1981 version. Although, there are some changes in the starting skill percentages. The changes between the 1980/1981 and the 2002 version are summed up here:

Basic Role Playing: The Chaosium System

Amazon.com: Basic Roleplaying: The Chaosium System: Books: Greg Stafford,Lynn Willis,Chris Appel,William Church

Here is 1981 version, at a unbelievably high cost:

Amazon.com: Basic role playing: An introductory guide: Books: Greg Stafford

Also, check the bargin box at any gaming store you come across. I found a copy (1981 parchment cover) for $1.00 at my favorite gaming store years back.

P.S. The 2002 version has the same title and cover as the BRP monographs that are currently being sold at Chaosium.com. The BRP monographs are essentially RQ3 with all references to Glorantha and RuneQuest removed and replaced with BRP.

Hmm... not really fond of those, but it's the content that matters I guess! ;)

SGL.
