Dungeonteller Hero Pack

For those of you just tuning in, my fantasy-rpg-for-everyone, Dungeonteller, is finally coming out this summer in its definitive format: a free "hero pack" that is like a super-concentrated players' handbook, and a pay-for-it "dungeonteller pack" that is a DMG and monster manual in one. 

I just uploaded the hero pack to -- and I'm waiting for it to appear on the site. It has six 2-page hero sheets, 8 micro posters that explain the rules visually, and 4 fully illustrated gear, weapon, and armor pages. Here's the cover art:

The rules are in what I call "full sunlight" format: straightforward, colorful, lots of visuals, no big text blocks. These rules are ideal for introducing young people and non-gamers to fantasy roleplaying. Not rules light, but super consistent and intuitive, with tactical options that are as easy to ignore as they are to use. You can start a game in five minutes, guaranteed.

  • Uses six-sided dice only
  • The math is kept to a minimum -- plays great for ages 7 and up
  • Minimal record keeping -- hit points/effort/luck come from a single pool
  • Uses standard optimized base class characters that can be customized during play
I'll send out a post when the hero pack is up, later this week. For now, check out this sample character sheet, front and back:

And while the kid slept, I did this:

Verdict: Approved!
