"Still working my way through it, (there is a lot of content here,) and really like what I see. The author made good on his goal to give this (big!) module an old-school feel. I particularly am fond of the maps and the player handouts; the WFRP player in me really appreciates those details. "
What happens when you combine a traditional fantasy RPG and a card game? The portability of Compact Heroes. This is a NON-Collectible card game, so no worries about trying to find the best cards. The core set includes everything you need to create characters and run an adventure.
Compact Heroes won the Best New Game category for DieHard Gamefan in 2011!
I've been an old school RPG fan since the beginning. Stayed with AD&D instead of moving to 3e or 4e when they came out. The feel of how the game played still holds up today, and is a wonderful experience if you prefer the more lethal sword and sorcery style of play.
However, it was a product of its time, which was geared towards white male adolescents. Women were often portrayed in revealing armor (chain mail bikinis with nipples? Really?), and there were almost no representations of diverse PCs.
Chromatic Dungeons works to address that lack of inclusive diversity without being overbearing, while make some rules adjustments to make the game flow smoother while keeping true to the TSR era D&D experience.
Altus Adventum was my own personally designed fantasy RPG, originally created in the 90s, then revised and cleaned up in the 2000s. It uses a progressive dice pool system as its core mechanic, and has some features I really like (naturally, since I created it lol).
That being said, boy have I learned a lot since then. Not only in skill as a designer, but in awareness of the gaming culture. So why keep it available for everyone to see? To be a reminder of how growth as a designer and person is possible. Own up to our flaws and be better.
