Coming Soon: Stand-Alone AD&D 1st Ed Character Generator

Only decent 1e Character Generators I could find were online, and of the three I bookmarked, 2 disappeared in the last year as sites went down.  So, I decided to code my own, with the added benefit of brushing up on coding that I hadn’t touched in a decade or more.

Recent Files Added

Added a few things since thanksgiving, the holiday time-off being good for getting RPG work done. 🙂   All the forms are AD&D 1e.

  • 11/27 – Situational Spell Load-Out Form — Add-on for my printable spellbook, use as a way to keep track of individual memorizations based on situations like Dungeons, Cities, Overland, Caverns, etc.
  • 12/29 – Carolingia Font — Nice pseudo-medieval/fantasy font that is FAR easier to read than Old English.  Good for maps and handouts.
  • 12/30 – Party XP – XP Needed – Gold Form — Allows the DM to keep a running total at each XP distribution.   Acts as a backup check to player math and  gives the party an overview of where every character stands towards next level and wealth.

New File: Situational Spell Load-Out Form

I created this after noticing our magic-user was making notes on notebook paper and when I asked what he was doing (since he uses the spell book I created and posted here), he told me he was doing ‘standard load-outs’ for various situations he might run into.

New File: AD&D 1e – Druid Spells – Lvl 1-7

Finally managed to slog my way through the druid spell list and transcribe/format them to my 3×5″ spell cards.   They have been uploaded to Google Drive or a download link may be found in the files section.   Enjoy!   

(and now to work up the willpower to do the Illusionist Spells)

Updated Top Secret RPG

The original spy/espionage RPG from TSR hasn’t aged well.   Soviets are gone as the primary ‘enemy’ and China and Islamic Terrorists have ascended.   But it seems the original author is redoing the game for our current times.   I just hope its a background update and they do not screw it up by rewriting the entire game system.

The TSR mentioned on the above website is TSRGAMES, not our late, lamented original. 

Review: T1-4 Temple of Elemental Evil (1e)

T1-4 Temple of Elemental Evil Cover

My party is very close to finishing ‘T1-4 The Temple of Elemental Evil’.   First off, regardless of what your local 5e players say, this is a MEGA-DUNGEON.  Granted it’s not a hundred little independent adventures in the same area as most modern players know mega-dungeons (or, as MMO players call it, a quest hub), but a classic mega-dungeon consisting of ONE BIG CONTINUOUS ADVENTURE!

Announcement: AD&D 1e – Cleric Spell Cards – Lvl 1-7 Complete!

Finished the Cleric spell Cards.   Unfortunately, they are too large to upload to this site (a bit over 475 MB).   I have uploaded them to my Google Drive instead.

Accessories: The Deck of Many Things

The Deck of Many Things, by William O’Connor Studios.    Published in Dungeon Magazine #177, the article itself is meaningless, its 4e (maybe 5e early) so ignore it as the effects do not match 1e/2e.
