I've always been interested in things that where non-D&D old school games. I looked at games like Troika! and found it trying to reinvent something that wasn't really broken( that's just me though.) and the setting/style wasn't for me. Warlock! however, was something special, and while not perfect, it is pretty close to a copy of old school gaming.

with that said, I loved what I read so far, and I'm willing to run this game at some point for a group of friends as a one night dungeon crawl or a short campaign.

Good job here.

Edit: Fixed the error once Greg pointed it out about professions, that was my mistake and I corrected it. Once everything is edited and squared away, I will buy a P.O.D. version of this game.

Thanks for the review! To clarify, you don't roll a d66, you roll four d6 which gives you four selections (one from each of the d6 lists). You then choose the one you like. So there's a random element, but of the four randomly-generated careers, you get to pick the one you fancy. I hope that makes sense!

This is a interesting way to do 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons. I'm rating it only 3 stars because there seems to be a couple of spelling and grammer errors that could be fixed, and and other things that need to make the product better.

What I liked: Classes can choose what they want to be when they start instead of doing subclasses, and giving the player ideas of how they should play their characters is great way to Role Play. Back to the basic 7 classes and 3 alignments, just more modern take on it, which is always good. Speaking of, Race as Class in this version is nice and would use it for vanilla 5e.

What I don't Like: Spelling errors and grammer needed to be fixed before being released.

Looks dangerously close to the free basic 5e rules and should be more closer to OSR to set it appart (in my opinion.) Not having an attribute score and bonus chart that tells players what to write down on there character sheet and what they mean, even if it is just a basic description, would have made it easier for new players to learn ( I know that is what book 2 is for but even then it doesn't have the score/bonus chart in that, as far as I have seen, but it would help here instead of relying on basic 5e rules for that information.)

It's overall a good product just needs some work on fixing the spelling errors.
