As I announced a few days ago, I’ve decided to try to push to get Microlite81 Expanded to public beta form by (or shortly after) New Year’s Day. I’ve made progress over the last few days, including two “donor releases”. I’ve updated the basic rules from the last time I did any work on Microlite81 Expanded to match those in the Silver Release version of Microlite81. I’ve added rough drafts of a number of optional rules, added the Druid optional class, added Weapon mastery rules, cleric special ability rules based on deity type, basic ritual magic rules, reformatted spell lists to make them more readable, etc. In other words, real progress is being made.
