The first (and with luck, only) beta version of Microlite78: First Edition Lite is now available for download. It should be feature-complete and only need proofreading and final editing — barring someone (like you) pointing out a major problem or omission.
Microlite78 is a trimmed-down miniature version of the Primary Fantasy SRD rules designed to be quick and easy to play, especially when compared to modern incarnations of the game. The goal of Microlite78 is do for First Edition (1e) what Microlite74 did for the Original Edition (0e) to recreate the style and feel of the First Edition of the world’s most popular fantasy roleplaying game published back in 1978 without giving up all of the clearer mechanics of modern D20-based versions.
Please point out any issues you see ASAP as I would like to get the “Final 1.0” version out in the next few weeks. Like just about everything else I do game-wise, both the beta and final version of Microlite78: First Edition Lite will be free of charge — although donations to the Retro-Roleplaying Cancer Fund as always welcome. Thanks in advance for downloading this beta — and please point out any problems you notice.
