Blueholme Prentice Rules updated

I started with AD&D in a game run by a friend's older brother who was in college, but another friend of mine had Holmes and DMed it, so I've played it a bunch as well.

We tried to extend the rules past level 3 with hilarious results. Since it took 1500 xps to go from 1st to 2nd, and then another 1500 to go from 2nd to 3rd, we thought that should hold up all the way from there, 1500 (or so, depending on the class) for each new level. So we quickly had 50th level characters. Eh, we were 7-8.

Anyway, a new version of the excellent Holmes retroclone, Blueholme, is now available. There were supposed to be complete rules (up to level 20), but writing a full blown retroclone to that is harder than you'd think.

  1. Thanks for the shout out, Jeremy. The Compleat Rules are still in the pipe, but updating the Prentice Rules to match was a priority. And now I have to update the Maze of Nuromen (including the name, if you check the back cover blurb of the Prentice Rules). And then I'll have to prepare the other two parts of the triology of adventures.

    And THEN I get to look at the Compleat Rules artwork crowd funding ... ;-)
