Help Proofread Microlite74 Version 3.0 (Please)

Labels: , , , , , ,

Barring major problems, development of Microlite74 Version 3 is finished. Now I need your help to proofread the release candidate versions of Microlite74 Basic, Standard, and Extended (as well the first Microlite74 Companion). I've ran them through Word's spelling and grammar checker and caught all the errors that I can, now I need the eagle eyes of people who proofread better than I do (which is about 97% of the population of the US). Release Candidate 1 is now available for download. You don't have to proofread to download, but any proofreading help would be much appreciated. It's also likely your last chance to point out any issues you might have with the rules or the player/GM advice.

Your input and typos found are welcome now. Please use our new message board to discuss these rules (and my many typos. Comments here are welcome as well. Note that the Player's and GM Notes after the rules in Microlite74 Basic, Standard, and Extended is almost identical, so please check for typos in these sections only in the Microlite74 Basic version (to avoid unnecessary proofreading).

The Basic version of the Microlite74 rules covers material from the 3 little booklets in the original 0e boxed set. This Release Candidate 1 version is a 212k pdf. You can download this file from Mediafire:

Download Microlite74 Basic (version 3 RC 1)

The Standard version of the Microlite74 rules covers material from the original 0e boxed set and the official supplements and official magazines. This Release Candidate 1 version is a 312K pdf. You can download this file from Mediafire:

Download Microlite74 Standard (version 3 RC 1)

The Extended version of the Microlite74 rules covers material from the original 0e boxed set and the official supplements and official magazines but also includes unofficial supplements and magazines as well and some of the house rules the author used in the late 1970s. (Microlite74 Extended is the new name for Microlite75.) This Release Candidate 1 version is a 380K pdf. You can download this file from Mediafire:

Download Microlite74 Extended (version 3 RC 1)

Microlite74 Companion volume one includes the optional rules from the original Microlite74 Supplement 1 and from the GM's volume of Microlite75 along with new optional rules. Most of these optional rules can be used with any of the three versions of Microlite74. This Release Candidate 1 version is a 225K pdf. You can download this file from Mediafire:

Download Microlite74 Companion I: Optional Rules (version 3 RC 1)

Thanks in advance for any proofreading help!

First, thank you for all the work you've done here! I've been getting back into RPGs after a very long hiatus and nearly wept when I saw the "Adventurer" class...someone else finally gets it!

Second, when do you need/want these done? I have some time this week I can go over them and probably be done by Fri. evening/Sat. morning.

More to follow...

Because, Joseph, he is a god amongst men :)

And since my evening of working on DEEP DELVE got grounded I'm on it...now let's see how this newly re-built server takes to d/l'ing.

@Joesph: There really wasn't much work done between Beta 3 and RC 1: a few errors corrected (e.g. the correct Experience Base for the classes in the Standard version), some more player's notes, and an attempt at proofreading. Therefore, I got get it out fairly fast.

@Anonymous: Later this week is great. I doubt I'll even have time to look at M74 again before the weekend. I've got a very busy few days ahead of me.

Alignment

Alignment is listed in the Companion. No notation about it being part of Extended (uniformity-ref Companion page 2-Minor Magic-Version Suitability: Any. Included in Microlite74 Extended)

In the Standard there is a mention of alignment on page 11 in the continued over paragraph from page 10 but no further mention of alignment in the rulebook. (Straggler?)

"Standard" seems to be entirely missing any information on equipment beyond the A-B-C standard delver packs; both the list of stuff to buy, and the reference to 3d6x10 GP starting funds.

@Pere Ubu: Standard, like basic, just uses the equipment packs. I was going for fast. Perhaps I should add equipment and starting funds in the Companion for people who want to use them in Basic or Standard?
