The world was created by the gods to harbour the souls that are born in their

realm. The world was shattered into four pieces after the evil god,
sometimes called the Liberator, had lured the fourteen nations into waging
war on each other. The fourteen kings were ruthless lords who became
immortal so that they could rule the mortal realm forever.
The mortals revolted and with the help of the gods the first heroes defeated
the fourteen kings, destroying eight of them, and shattering the world in the
process. The first heroes sacrificed themselves to stabilize the four worlddiscs.
The remaining god-kings took what remained and imprisoned the Liberator
in a sphere of rock, feeling betrayed that they couldn't rule forever in the
mortal realm. The moon is now their realm from where they lure mortals
into hating other mortals. Those that succumb are dragged to the moon to
become demons in service of the god-kings.
The world of mortals is now protected by the angel-stars, but the god-kings
will always be there with the promise of power.

Microlite 2d6: Dungeons and dragons v1.0 by Freek 'Madwarrior' de Wijs


Your character's abilities:
A character has three abilities and four skills which are combined to
overcome obstacles. Fighting is resolved mostly without skills and uses
only the modifier. Skill tests use an appropriate Skill Rank and Ability
Modifier. For example, to climb a rock face, you roll Str/Phys, using your
Strength Modifier and Physical Skill Rank to add to a 3d6 roll. In the
example below, the character has a Str Score of 16, which indicates a
Modifier of +3, and a Physical Rank of +1. The Str/Phys bonus to the roll
for scaling a cliff is thus +4. Let's say scaling a cliff is tough, then a
Difficulty Class of about 14 is appropriate. The character thus needs to roll
at least a 10 on 3d6 to scale the cliff.
Rolling ability scores:
You roll 4d6 three times, and each time discard the lowest before writing it
down. Then you assign the three scores to the abilities you like. If all three
are 10 or lower, re-roll the lowest until you have at least one score 11 or
higher.

Summary:
Ability score = 4d6, drop lowest
Modifier (XXXmod) = (Stat-10)/2 Rounded down.
Hitpoints (HP) = STR score + level
Armour Class (AC) = 10+DEXmod+Armour
Initiative = 3d6+DEXmod
Melee attack = 3d6+STRmod (+weapon)
Ranged attack = 3d6+DEXmod (+weapon)
Skillpoints = (MIND/2)+level

Combat:
In combat, each character may move and perform an action like drawing a
weapon or attacking with said weapon on his turn. Alternatively, he may
run, moving twice as fast.
The order in which these turns are played is determined by Initiative. Each
player rolls 3d6 and adds his Dex Modifier. players play in order of highest
to lowest Initiative.
To attack another creature in melee, you roll 3d6, add your Str modifier and
possibly a bonus from a weapon and compare it to the target's Armour
Class, which is equal to 10 plus his armour bonuses and his Dex Modifier.
To attack at range, you roll 3d6, add your Dex modifier and possibly a
bonus from a weapon.
Conditions:
-If you are stunned, you cannot act or move.
-If you are prone, you lie on the ground and have a -1 to all rolls and AC.
-If you are immobilized you cannot move.
Healing:
When healing a character, you cannot raise total hitpoints above maximum.
When healing a character below 0 hitpoints, you start healing as if the
character had 0 hitpoints.
Death and dying:
A character can die in two ways: a) Hitpoints drop below minus half the
maximum (rounding down). So a character with 13 hitpoints dies at minus 6
hitpoints. b) The character fails three death saves. When a character is a 0 or
less hitpoints, it must roll a death save every turn on 1d6. On a 3 or lower,
the save is failed. Passing three death saves means you are stable and the
death save process starts anew. Dead characters cannot be healed without
the 'raise dead' spell.

Races:
Six types of intelligent mortal races can be discerned among the denizens of
te world: Dragons, and Lizardmen, Giants and Humans and Fey and Trolls.
Fey, Giants, Humans Lizardmen and Trolls are playable in the game.
Fey (Elves, gnomes, dwarves) produce 1 gold worth of either arcane or
divine spell components every morning when they wake up. Which they
produce is determined at birth.
Giants (Giants, ogres, cyclopses) double their hitpoints and do d6 unarmed
melee damage. Though they have to pay double for armour and weapons to
compensate for their size as they take up a 10x10 square.
Humans (Humans, halflings, half-humans) ignore the first death saving roll
after they drop below 0 hitpoints, starting the process at the second turn
after they drop below 0 hitpoins.
Lizardmen (Kobolds, yuan-ti, kuo-toas) remain conscious and remain
active until they die (unless knocked unconscious through a spell effect or
fatigue).
Trolls (Trolls, orcs, goblins) regenerate one hitpoint per turn in combat
when they are wounded. Outside combat, they regain one hitpoint per
minute.
If you really want one could attempt these rules for dragons:
Dragons do d6 unarmed melee damage, may fly and may use a breath
attack, but may wield no weapons and may wear only specialized dragonfitted armour.
At level 1, a dragon is 5x5 suare, just like humans. They pay double for
their armour.
At level 2-4 dragons are 10x10 squares, double their hitpoints and pay
triple for their armour.
At level 5-7 dragons are 15x15 squares, triple their hitpoints and pay
quadruple for their armour.
At level 8-10 dragons are 20x20 squares, quadruple their hitpoints and pay
five times as much for their armour.
Example dragon lvl 8: STR14 DEX13 MIND13
AC11, HP88, PHYS+3 SUB+3 KNOW+4 COMM+3

Levelling up:
A character may level up if they gain ten experience points. To gain
experience points, a character must set goals for themselves or take a goal
from the GM. Goals have a difficulty and a type, either group or individual
goals. Each goal has a difficulty from 1 to 3, and a number of characters
who can receive experience from the goal.
The number of experience points which can be gained from a goal are equal
to the difficulty (1-3). The goal is met, and experience points awarded after
a number of scenes, accomplishments and/or sacrifices made towards the
goal. The number of accomplishments is equal to the difficulty multiplied
by the number of character who join in the goal times three.
For example: Three characters were wronged by a knight; he kidnapped a
girl who was the love interest of one character, the best friend of the second
and the sister of the third. They set out to rescue the girl, which now
becomes their goal. It has a difficulty of two (determined by the GM), and
three characters joining in. Thus the number of accomplishments before
they receive experience is 2*3*3 = 18. They need to find out where the
knight lives (1) then defeat the knights soldiers on the road (2), climb the
mountain to the castle (3) and find the secret entrance (4). Then they need to
break into the castle (5), fight the monster in the secret tunnel (6) find out
where the lady is held (7) and break her out of the prison (8). Theyre barely
halfway, for they need to sneak through the castle (9), discover the entrance
is blocked (10), find the gate mechanism (11) and sneak to the gate (12).
Next they need to open the gate (13) fight the soldiers at the gate (14) and
escape the castle before more soldiers show up (15). Lastly they need to
hike down the mountain (16) set up an ambush (17) and defeat the knight in
combat (18).
Of course, this requires the GM to constantly be on his feet and throw new
challenges at the characters until the stack runs out.

If a character levels up, they gain in power and ability, depending on their
class. There are four classes of characters, but each class may add one point
to one of their basic abilities at every level, except level one.
Arcane characters
Martial characters
Divine characters
Skillful characters
Each class has a list of feats. Characters gain one appropriate feat at first
level and one more at each even level (2, 4, 6 etc). In addition, each
character has a +1 to each roll with their associated skill. Arcane characters
have +1 knowledge, Divine characters have +1 communication, Martial
characters have +1 physical and Skillful characters have +1 subterfuge.
Lastly, at each uneven level, each class has their inherent bonus that
upgrades at each uneven level (including level 1).
The maximum level a character can reach is level 10.
Arcane characters may forage for magical essence in the neighbourhood,
and find up to one gold worth of arcane spell components per uneven level
per day by scavenging for an hour.
Martial characters may choose each uneven level to gain +2 hitpoints or +1
damage in combat.
Divine characters may pray for an hour to their god each day and may
choose one divine spell they can cast for free, even if they do not know it.
The maximum level of the spell is 1 at character level 1, 2 at character level
3, 3 at character level 5, 4 at character level 7 and 5 at character level 9.
Skillful characters may pass up to one roll without rolling per day for each
uneven level. However, they get one type of roll for each uneven level.
There are five types of rolls, one for each type of skill and rolls to hit in
combat.
Multiclass feat: All characters may choose the multiclass feat. They gain the
level 1 bonus for the chosen class, and may choose feats from the other
class feat list when the character may choose a new feat.

Gold & equipment:


At the start of the game, each player has a wealth of 100 gold - the total of
your ability scores. So a character with 12, 13, 7 for stats has 68 gold. Then
each player may spend that gold on weapons, spells and equipment.
