[Kickstarter] Old-School Essentials (vo) 7
Winter Old-School Essentials is coming to Kickstarter April 12th.
ANciennement nommé B/X Essentials, Old-School Essentials est une version clarifiée, précise et corrigée du B/X avec comme stretch goal l'inclusion de 15 classes issues de AD&D, comme le druide et l'illusioniste, ainsi que leur 106 nouveaux sorts.
Why Play Old-School Essentials?
There are a zillion and one retro-clones and B/X-inspired games out there, all with their own quirks, pros, and cons. The following points make Old-School Essentials stand out from the crowd:
- Clarified rules: The original Basic / Expert rules form a wondrously solid rules set, but they are not without areas of ambiguity and contradiction. All known omissions, contradictions, and areas of confusion have been carefully ironed out in Old-School Essentials.
- 100% accurate clone: Unlike the majority of retro-clones, Old-School Essentials is a 100% accurate restatement of the original Basic / Expert rules. This is, of course, with the exception of the fixes that were made to the rules, as described above. (There'd be no point in slavishly reproducing errors!)
- Designed for ease of reference: The Old-School Essentials books have been meticulously edited and laid out with the aim of maximising usability during play. No more searching through references scattered across multiple pages. No more scanning dense paragraphs of text to pick out details. Everything in Old-School Essentials is logically organised and collated, and presented in a quick-to-read format. (See page examples below.)
- Digest-size books: For convenience at the table, all books are produced in handy digest size.
- Modular approach: The rules of Old-School Essentials are divided into "modules"—chunks of related content that can be cleanly separated from the rest of the rules. This makes it simple to swap out (say) the classic fantasy classes and replace them with a book of alternate classes.
- Ascending Armour Class: For those more familiar or comfortable with Ascending Armour Class (i.e. AC values that start at 10 and go up), this optional rule has been fully integrated into Old-School Essentials.

Oooops ... Je suis allé trop vite ! (Note à moi-même: Ne jamais rédiger quand on est à la bourre)
