– Basic Red

New Post from Basic Red I don’t keep up with game shit any more really. I was going to try to write something about having watched Velvet Buzzsaw and Until The Light Takes Us too close together and it gave me the delusion of having a point. I wrote thousands of empty words and deleted […]

Quick Encumbrance One – Basic Red

New Post from Basic Red Two-handed items or very heavy items can count as 2, and up to 1000 coins counts as 1 and so forth. DM’s discretion. You can carry a weight of “coins” equal to your Constitution x1000. Whenever you want to carry something after you reach this limit you have to do […]

I Was Working In The Lab Late One Knight – Basic Red

New Post from Basic Red The aim: go through a bunch of monster lists, picking no more than 5 monsters from each list but being free to pick none, and keep doing so until I have a list of 100 monsters. Make that the “monster manual” for any future dndish game I run unless I’m […]

XXR Micro Edition – Basic Red

New Post from Basic Red Dwarf PioneerThief/Specialist ScoutHalfling HunterYou can gain the benefits of a laborer (+1 to Strength or Constitution), a scholar (+1 to Intelligence or Wisdom), or a rascal (+1 to Charisma or Dexterity). You can pick a job and gain the social benefits and pay from that job for as long as […]

Green Room Pregens – Basic Red

New Post from Basic Red Randomly generated using the previous post alone, these are relatively accomplished characters but hardly on par with Marvel Super-Heroes, you know? That doesn’t mean they can’t get up to some stuff. I just charged 10pts for every Talent, if that ever ends up breaking a game I’ll let you know. […]

REVIEW: Optogram, by Ramona Romano – Basic Red

New Post from Basic Red In my own experiments with the multi-phasic multi-table adventure I come inexorably back to the definitive Jade series cam-pak release and the definitive release for this particular genre, Optogram by Ramona Romano. Ramona’s constipated oils and Hidetora flourishes lend an overtly oppressive air to what is a quintessential table-top experience […]

MARDUK – Basic Red

New Post from Basic Red D&D Marduk is dumb. He’s barely mentioned in anything I’ve ever seen and if he does show up he’s just a lame god of goodness and like rivers flooding the wheat for a good crop. Compare to Marduk’s old foe Tiamat who got probably the best result from Gary’s synonym […]

Help Wanted – Basic Red

New Post from Basic Red I’m mostly cleaning up old unposted articles or things I never put up on the site right now. I don’t know if I have it in me any more to do any of this. If I’m frank it feels a little pointless and flailing but it’s the only thing I […]
