|Printed rules and Zocchi dice|
- Gamers will eat healthy snacks if you provide them. Some of the gang brought popcorn and chips, of course, but I supplied a bowl of cantaloupe and some fresh carrots & celery. All gone by session's end.
- The probabilities seemed to be exactly where I wanted them to be, dice-roll-wise. The Zocchi dice finally got their time to shine at my table.
- The B/X-based rules run like a charm without the use of ability scores, as I suspected. You can design and run an OSR game using nothing but stat blocks, the race-as-class concept, and a collection of templates to add on top of them. I'll have more to say about that in a future post.
- The adventure I wrote wasn't enough of a challenge for 1st-level characters, except for the final challenge, which was beyond their abilities. Need to scale it better on a re-write.
No one died, not even in the yellow mold room.
