Looking for the Free Microlite20/7x/8x/2020 Rules Downloads?

There are well over 100 free downloads of rules (and more) for Microlite20, Microlite2020, Microlite7x, Microlite 81, and their many variants in the Game Download Library area below. These files can be downloaded without creating a membership on this site.

 

 

 

Update (19 Jun 23):

As I mentioned many weeks ago, maintaining the seldom used Wordpress side of this site became too much of a bother, especially as parts of Wordpress are constantly updating and some those updates break things -- like access to this forum. I'm finally had time to remove it. The forum should stop disappearing from view now.

As many of you know, my wife has had MS for about 20 years now. It has gotten to the stage where helping her takes a lot more of my time that it used to. This means visits to this board have become few and far between. I'm looking for a couple of members willing to help moderate this board. Note that if your idea of good moderation is anything similar the way boards like RPG.net are moderated, do not bother volunteering. Good moderation isn't about forcing your opinions, ideological positions, or biases on members via your power to gag and ban, it is about being helpful to all members (even those you don't like/disagree with), cleaning up after spammers, and enforcing the rules with the lightest hand possible and only doing so when the rules are actually broken. If you are interested in any message board moderation position on any board because of the supposed "power" it will give you, you are (IMHO) the wrong person for the job. If you are interested, PM me. It may taken quite a while to reply, unfortunately.

@Babilfrenzo, nice work on this!

Are you the original author of Adamantine Edition? It's my go-to version of m20.

Yeah, I'm the original author! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed it.

Re: WotC, the OGL 1.*, and SRD 3.*

Oh, by the way I have completed my re-work of Microlite20 into a non-OGL form. It is bigger and longer than Microlite20 since, just as I have a problem with rules so bloated that no one can figure out what anything means without a ouija board, I also dislike rules that are so 'lite' that they leave...

Re: Eldritch Words Spell System

Is the 3d6 * Potency something that scales appropriately? I feel like most Potency 1 spells in The Traditional System do significantly less damage than that for the equivalent cost of 3 MP. Curious if you've playtested this progression and how it went... Elsewise, while I still don't think I'd run ...

Eldritch Words Spell System

In my efforts to replace all OGL content for M20 Fifth, I have been forced to replace the Words of Power system that I had used under the OGL. This is what I've replaced it with, I'd be interested in any feedback, or suggestions on how I could improve the system: Eldritch Words Spell System All magi...

Scrubbing M20 Fifth of OGL-derived content

I'm partway through an effort to remove any OGL-derived content from M20 Fifth, so I can relicense it under a Creative Commons License, but I'd be interested in any suggestions or advice people could offer me to make sure I dot all my i's and cross all my t's in this regard. My current efforts can b...
