My Crappy Little NaGaDeMon Game

I whipped up this little game, which is nothing more than a hack of TOON, in the spirit of NaGaDeMon. I'm not an actual registered participant, but it seemed like a fun thing to do anyways.

I made the game so I'd have a one-stop system for any RPGish gaming I do with my daughter (age 3) and her friends (and perhaps the "grown-ups" too, when we're in the mood for some lighter fare). It should be able to handle anything from My Little Pony to Adventure Time to old-fashioned dungeon crawling. I took care to keep the thing as open-ended as possible, since I think more structured games have a stifling effect on the creativity of a child. Thus, there are no pre-defined character types, powers, or items. The players will have to make them up!

Yep, that's all there is to it!

If you do happen to give it a go, I'd love to hear how it worked for you.

Tunnels & Trolls 4th Edition PDF Released

Flying Buffalo has released a PDF of the 4th edition of the Tunnels & Trolls rules, and it is available HERE. I highly recommend the purchase, to show that there is interest in the old crusty versions. T&T 4th has a great deal of charm, and the power curve is notably lower than that of the popular 5th edition. I think it's a great framework if you want to keep your game really simple, or to have a nice skeleton upon which to build your own wacky creation. At any rate, the $4 price is tough to beat.
