Heroes & Monsters
by collin s. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/30/2017 00:43:59

I don't know why this only got one three star review. The book is well laid out and gives you everything you need to run D&D black hack style. Maybe it was just too similar to the original black hack and various clones? I don't know, I read it and I liked it.

I love D&D 5th edition but it is just too top heavy for me. I'm looking at lighter OSR solutions like Heroes & Monsters that I can tweak a little bit. I'd probably add some skills / careers outside of class in and this would mostly work for me.

If you like a well made 2d6 Rpg, complete with everything, full of options for your characters (traditional classes or classless) and combat, a non-vancian magic system based on magic points (but you can easy use a Vancian one if you like), all the traditional monsters, very easy to add your house rules and with an old school feeling... you have found something that will make you very happy! :)

Dungeon Questing
by collin s. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/16/2016 15:22:37

I noticed The Black Hack is really popular right now, and there is nothing wrong with that. Dungeon Questing is more to my taste though. It uses a 2D6 mechanic, is a very rules lite flavor of OSR clone, but it is more flushed out than Black Hack appears to be (I read the Black Hack SRD I haven't bought it yet but probably will). Monsters are flushed out much further, as well as spells and other things. Dungeon Questing is skill based with what is it 17 or 18 key skills. I like this, I can already see adding a few of them. I'm looking forward to playing this. I didn't trust the 2D6 mechanic, thinking it was too limited, until I played Barbarians of Lemuria. The simplistic mechanic works fine and moves very fast. In BOL you can get a lot of adventuring done in four hours...I'm assuming it is the same with Dungeon Questing. So far it looks like a fine rules light OSR and it is a steal for $2.50. Recommended.

Dungeon Questing
by Brendon W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/05/2016 02:10:26

I purchased this game on a whim, while buying more high profile items and was pleasantly surprised by it. It is exactly what it claims to be, the old White Box Sword and Sorcery remixed to the dice mechanic found in the Doctor who games and countless others (2d6 + Stat + Skill >= Difficulty). For some reason I found it utterly charming, and I think it would make a good game for an experienced GM to play with younger children, or to introduce new players to the hobby. It also removes the classes and levels, instead defining class features as separate skills (Turning Undead is a skill, escalating hit dice is a skill, Casting Spells is a skill). I liked this rule idea. It makes the game easier to expand as a GM, and allows the players to "multiclass" in a simple and elegant way. The set of rules I are less impressed by are the race rules, humans seem under-powered, and there is too much similarity between dwarves and halflings. The game has a nice layout with an attractive font. My main complaint would be the extremely poor editing but that doesn't impact the understanding of the rules.

This game is an inexpensive, but solid option iin the Old School gaming field.

Right up front, let me say that the game could use another editorial pass. In the descriptions of Chrisma and Wisdom it says you get an XP bonus if your stat is 13+. At the beginning of the section, it explains that stas go from -2 to +2. So obviously, someone didn't finish cleaning up some of those old references. But I will also say that sort of thing is piddly-tosh and not what would frighten a bold adventurer.

As it stats in the product description, Dungeon Questing is pretty much BX D&D, based on a 2d6 system instead of using a d20. If that sounds like your kind of game, then Dungeon Questing is for you. The rules are complete - as complete as any BX style game - with monsters and treasure and spells and everything else you need.

Dungeon Questing does not use character classes - though their is an optional appendix to do so - but instead uses a skill system that lets you build your own character as you see fit. If you do not like skill systems, then you may have a problem here, though I think you could probaby simply the game another step and eliminate most of the skills with little problem.

At $2.50 for 162 pages, this is a fantastic bargain and a must have for anyone who wants to play Old School D&D, but wants to ditch the d20.

Thank you for spotting the error, I\'ll get right to work on correcting it! And I would like to add that there is indeed a class system in the appendix for those who do not want the skill-based system. Dungeon Questing is based on Swords & Wizardry White Box and the classes in the appendix follows the same format as its parent game, with the difference that it\'s based on the 2d6 mechanic.

Good light rule-set. It is a good blend for those who are familiar with Dungeon World and with FATE. It is more crunchy than DW because it allows more discrete progression, but it is good for those who want more D&D/OSR goodness in their game.
