Microlite81 Is now Available for Free Download (Free Old School RPG)
Microlite81 1.0 Silver is finally finished and ready for download. In case you’ve missed all the previous posts on Microlite81, Microlite81 is to the B/X edition of the world’s best known tabletop RPG as Microlite74 is to the original 1974 edition of that game. That means that Microlite81 has taken the 1981 Basic and Expert boxed sets and converted the system to one based on Microlite20 — a rules light version of the D20 system. You can use Microlite20 to play any published adventure you could use with the B/X version with only a few minor changes (like inverting AC). If you like Microlite20, Microlite74 or the 1981 Basic/Expert sets of the world’s best known tabletop RPG, Microlite81 is probably worth looking at – especially since the price is right: absolutely FREE.
This is the “Silver” version of Microlite81 which includes rules as well as complete (but brief) descriptions of spells, monsters, and treasure. If you’ve ever played any version of the world’s best known tabletop RPG, you should have no problem playing or running Microlite81. However, if you would like more complete information on spells, monsters, and treasure as well as a few examples of characters and combat, the upcoming Microlite81 Complete will probably serve you better. This is the “Silver” version because a final “Gold” version will be published when all the planned Microlite81 editions (Microlite81, Microlite81 Complete, Microlite81 Expanded, and Microlite81 Advanced) with any errata added and a complete list of Microlite81 sponsors but no other additions.
