    Low Fantasy Gaming Deluxe Edition - Kickstarter

    Hi all, just a shout out to let folks know that Low Fantasy Gaming Deluxe Edition's Kickstarter is on track to start in about a week's time. Summary of the main features below! https://lowfantasygaming.com/

    PDF & Hardcover: 2 versions, Full Colour + B&W Line Art.
    9 Classes: Artificer, Barbarian, Bard, Cultist, Fighter, Monk, Ranger, Rogue & Magic User; only two of which involve magic.
    12th Level Max eliminates the most powerful spells, and keeps the mightiest monsters scary.
    Unique Features: every 3rd level design your own PC ability in conjunction with your GM. Don't want to make your own? Choose from 36 examples instead.
    Roll Equal or Under for attribute checks (inc degrees of success), making every stat point matter.
    Skills provide access to a level based Reroll Pool, smoothing the fickleness of d20 probability distribution.
    Willpower & Perception attributes replace Wisdom.
    Luck attribute replaces saving throws and powers some Martial Exploits.
    Minor, Major & Rescue Exploits on top of damage, not in lieu, promote improvised stunts and moments of greatness.
    Dangerous Combat: Dropping to zero hp requires a roll on the Injuries & Setbacks table and healing is delayed by 1d3 minutes (magical or otherwise). Players don't roll to find out if their PC is All Dead or Mostly Dead until the battle ends and someone checks the body.
    Party Retreat & Chase rules allow the GM to throw whatever makes sense at the party, unshackling them from balanced encounters and quarantined zones.
    5 minute Short Rests allow PCs to attempt Willpower checks to recover hit points and class abilities, encouraging the party to push on rather than camp.
    Long Rests take 1d6 days (or 1d4 in a safe, comfortable environment), mitigating the nova, rest, repeat problem for adventures with long periods between battles (eg: wilderness treks).
    Dark & Dangerous Magic tests and Divine Rebuke tests make all spell casting inherently uncertain. No at-will, teleport, mind reading or resurrection magic. Magic Users are less reliant on spells, proficient in one handed weapons and light armour.
    Evocative Spells: Spells have been tweaked and renamed, eg: Silent Image, Invisibility, Magic Missile and Hold Monster are instead Shadows & Dust, A Wisp Unseen, Lash of Unerring Pain and Crush of the Warp.
    Rare Magic Items, with obvious and discreet attunements, that unlock as their owners level up.
    GM Tables for Weather, Exploration Events, Random Encounters, Traps, Treasure, Disease, Madness, Tavern Brawls, Hirelings, Mass Battle, Naval Combat, NPC Quirks, Rival Adventurers, Blackpowder, and more.
    130+ Monsters including effective Boss Monster options (eg: Off Turn Attacks match the party's action economy, and Stronger Luck grants saves even when a save is not normally permitted), plus custom monsters guide.
    Online Play Support: an LFG character sheet is available for online play via Roll20.
    Open Game Content: 99% of LFG text is "Open Game Content" under the Open Game Licence. Want to make your own adventures or expansions for LFG and sell them (including using expressions such as “Compatible with Low Fantasy Gaming”)? Go right ahead!

    More than happy to answer any questions. Cheers.

    It looks like it is primarily based on 5e.

    Wodon be praised! I'll be talking all things LFG in a Q and A session with Hardboiled GMshoe Dan Davenport at #randomworlds RPG chatroom on Wed 19 December 7:30 to 9:30pm Central.

    Past guests include Kenneth Hite, Robin D. Laws, Greg Stafford, CJCarella, Jonathan Tweet, Margaret Weis, and Mark Rein.Hagen. I'd love for you to stop by, say hello, and hit me up with any questions you might have. Fruit rinds, broken bottles and old cabbages optional. Hope to see you then!

    SeveredHead, with regard to dnd editions, it's a real mix of 2e through to 5e, with a large dose of non-dnd/new mechanics too.
