Opa Diogo, eu vi a licença do jogo e estava pensando em criar algo com sistema, claro que além dos créditos e referências a licença permite mais alguma coisa?

It might be just me opening the files on my iPad, but it seems that both the letter version and the A4 version is the same? Are half the page suposed to be upside down on both versions? I was hoping the A4 version was a regular read as I usually don’t print, but just read rules on my iPad :)

If you're still wondering, this is meant to be printed and folded into a PocketMod. That's why the pages are upside down. The creator hasn't released a screen readable version. The A4 vs Letter files are for printing on different sized paper (most of the word vs US).

I wasn't anymore - but thanks :) I took to write all the rules in a file and will eventually set them up properly in a normal format (barring all the cool drawing stuff of course).

I read all my rules on a computer or tablet/phone - so all these pocket mod rules that is so popular these days often stops me from buying them unless they have a "normal" formatted version as well.

when a PC attacks what statistic does it add?

and when does he defend?

how many and what items can adventurers take into creation?

If it’s with a weapon, they add body, normally. But if they somehow have a mind controlled sword, they might use sword.

they can begin with as many as they want, but the referee can restrict there.

Check out Primal Quest, a stone and sorcery adventure game with a  more detailed version of Sword Quest system: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xBskfdb_dy79r2Lje9b94KEoKkEIb5Vo3If-n36tN4U/edit

it’s still in draft text, but it’s completely playable!

really coool

This is the cup of tea to my hexcrawl necessities. Miniaml assets, minimal rules, to play a lot when I can. Congrats


thank you! I am playing this a lot myself! Adapting all sorts of stuff for it! And I can easily play with my 6 year old too!


Is there a possibility for a "Screen Friendly" version?

This is great, but hard to read when not printed.


I will have to transcribe it to a doc. But it will eventually happen as I develop this further. A supplement for it is going to be released next week.


Oh, if I made an ebook with the same pages, would that help?


A lot, actually :D


Visually, this game is as stunning as it is minimalistic! I'm looking forward to running this game!


Thank you very much! I am quite proud of this little game! I hope I get to develop it further!

Hey, quick question. Do larger items count as more than one item?


I would say so. But this is the Micro Edition, so it’s up to the Referee. Common sense should prevail though. :)
