I’ve done a fair bit on converting Gigacrawler from a document to software.
I decided to abandon the idea of using D&D rules–I don’t think the game would have felt like D&D in the end, and players might have felt cheated. I hope to use the ideas I came up with for the underworld though.
Anyway, I’ve done enough that I wanted to test it.
My character is a Neanderthal–clumsy, ugly, dumb and strong.
(the first five attributes are on the familiar 3-18 scale. Technology and Magic add up to Intelligence)
He starts his adventure in the town of Eight Invincible Lies.
Short of funds, he decides to rob a house. But someone sees him. He gets away, but is now wanted.
Normally he’d leave town, but I haven’t done that bit yet. So he decides to try robbing a house again. This time he’s mauled by a guard dog, losing 2 points of Physique.
He tries yet again, and this time steals a paltry ten shells.
He decides to look for companions. He meets someone called ‘undefined’. I’ve found an error. And thus his adventures end.
