What is an SRD Hack?

 An SRD hack is for those GMs and players that enjoy 5th ed but want to play it with slightly different rules. So we took a  look at the SRD released by Wizards of the Coast and tried to hack it to make it more what we wanted to play or make the game better, in our opinion. You can disagree and hate all our changes, and that is your right, but for us, these changes improve our game.

 We do not hack every aspect, and the rules we have changed will cause small word changes on the character sheet but not enough to prompt the need for a new character sheet, and as making a character sheet can be a ball ache, we have decided not to bother. So we have now decided to do a character sheet and both a standard and form-fillable sheet are now available.

 So what has changed?

  •  Your Race now offers Hit Points
  • Damage dice explode
  • Inspiration gone, characters now have Luck Points
  • No Hit dice at every level, but Con bonus stays
  • Only ten class levels
  • No more Proficiency bonus but class-based bonus instead
  • Defence, not Armour Class Characters use dex, parry and shields
  • Armour lowers damage
  • Weapons have a parry bonus
  • Criticals leads to special stunts
  • Magic Points, as long as you have the points, you can cast
  • Rolling for casting spells
  • Faith points for Clerics
  • No more skills, just specialities and talents
  • Milestone levelling
  • No Death Saves instead rules for bleeding to death
  • Lots of Tables for Hex Travel
  • A new way to look at monsters
  • Optional Half Levels
  • Weapons, Armour and gear lists

 

Big Fuckin’ Axe is not designed to replace the 5th edition but to see and use it differently or take from what you like to add to your game. It can also be used as a weird mix of OSR and 5th ed if you like that kind of thing, basically use it how you want.

Milestones are now implemented for BFA, what this means is that each time we sell a certain number of copies we will update the game with a new class, race, encounter table etc requested by you the fans, meaning that the game will get bigger and bigger and the price will stay the same.

Hate me if you like, but 5th Ed feels like the wrong game to apply these sorts of fixes too. It's already too far gone. Also if you are playing that game, odds are low that your tastes lean towards grit. PF 1 might work better? Like it's not exactly simulationist in any strong way, but it's closer.

Jay!

Having a warchanter or valor Bard could be nice for BFA. A bloody bard ready for the fight!

I was thinking bard

Miguel F S September 24, 2021 6:42 pm UTC

Hi Jay. I feel that a Bard for BFA should be more in line with the Skald, War Chanter and Valor Bard than the "normal" bard given that your hack is more deadlier than the "original" game.

Skald, War Chanter and Valor Bard are very combat oriented.

Lots of what I'm reading here seems to be inspired by HackMaster.

Never read Hackmaster, but I'd imagine some of it may have been done before, it makes sense.

Do you only acquire more Magic points and Faith points, at levels 5 and 10?
Customer avatar
Jay L September 19, 2021 8:48 am UTC
PUBLISHER
Yes so make sure the relevant stat is your highest, of course, you can change that if you like the GM can award more points, or use the Mages ability to absorb magic points once per day.

I like it, fits perfect with the low magic, low hit points, grim and gritty feel.
Customer avatar
Kevin B September 22, 2021 6:54 pm UTC
PURCHASER
I was thinking that you could create items that store magic points in an effort to get more. The evil old wizard with his Staff of the Magi comes to mind....

Yeah totally, maybe this could be a milestone in the future?

I picked this up yesterday, gave it a solid read through. There is a lot of great things in here. I like the form and the layout. I really appreciate your outlook on CR. It is quite refreshing.

I also think putting XXX in your name is a great way to filter out the kinds of people that wont enjoy the content of the book. Naming as a filter is some next level XXX.

Is this a stand alone game? Or do i need 5E books?
Customer avatar
Jay L September 17, 2021 6:45 am UTC
PUBLISHER
It can be used standalone but can also be used with the 5e books, there are no monsters or spells in it but any monsters or spells can be used.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
