This might be the best OSR adaptation to come down the pipeline yet! Author Kevin Crawford gives away this jewel of an RPG for free, but had I paid $10 for it I would have considered it a bargain! This is the sort of heroic fantasy RPG I would want to run or play in.
-- Cinematic combat and magic that makes 1st level heroes into badass threats
-- Ability to seamlessly integrate old school published material into new settings or use it as-is
-- Clever use of "new" school mechanics like "facts" to provide characters with RPG hooks and mechanical benefits
-- Brilliant multi-classing rules
What Could be better?
-- Treatment of fantasy races (there is none now)
-- More stuff! More Gifts, Spells, a Monster section, etc.
But this "game" is really the framework for designers to make there own classic OSR stuff--a template if you will. But it's a helluva a game besides that!
I can see using this to run a Planescape Campaign, and the ability to port in 2E stats without much alteration will make it a dream to use all of those old resources.
Bravo, Mr. Crawford! My only complaint? Make it a full-fledged Sine Nomine production with all of the bells and whistles!
Thanks for this amazing little game!
