Coming Very Soon: 2012 Microlite20 RPG Collection

Labels: , , ,

I've set aside Microlite74 Swords & Sorcery at Draft 4 for a few days so I can see how it works in play at my Sunday Game tomorrow and evaluate the results. For a change of pace, I'm actually working on a new edition of the one-volume Microlite20 RPG Collection. I haven't updated this in almost two years, so it is past time. I hope to have a new (and even larger) edition with a number of updates and new games ready early next week. Perhaps as early as Monday. The bad news is I may need to split it into two volumes to keep the size reasonable. You can see the 2010 edition here (20 meg download) or just wait for the larger 2012 edition in a few days.


The Leap Month Cancer Fund Drive is on (through the end of February 2012). Every $10 donated gives you one chance to win a one of five items described in the above-linked post: Daystar West Media edition of Pharaoh (1980)(won by Nelson Davis), FEZ 1 (the 1982 Valley of Trees version), the Quest for the Fazzlewood from Metro Detroit Gamers, Empire of the Petal Throne boxed set, and a set of all of the issues of The Strategic Review and the first ten issues of Dragon Magazine. Multiple drawings will be held as described in the above linked post. This is in addition to the usual PDF downloads and other benefits of a donation to the RetrpoRoleplaying Cancer Fund. To get help us pay our cancer treatment related bills (and to get access to some special downloads and possibly the above mentioned Firecracker items), send a donation in any amount -- small or large -- to me via Paypal. Thank you!


As of the time of this post $905 dollars have been donated. That's 30% of our goal and over 60% of the way to the second drawing trigger point of $1500 dollars..

Oh Hell YES! I flip through the 2010 collection every few weeks. I'm looking forward to the 2012 version.

I was surprised to see how many new or revised M20 games I have collected over the last 18-20 months. Some of them aren't so "micro", of course.

Hey Randalls!

I'd like to get the DungeonFinder books into the collection if possible. The links are in a post on the M20 boards and I think they're still good but if not I would be happy to send you ones that definitely work.

@Chad: The three DungeonFinder books I have are in the new collection. I'm trying to decide if I want one 50-60 meg book or if I need to move the three DungeonFinder books, Microlite20 Golden Edition and Grimmlite20 to a second volume as each of these items are 5 megs or more. Heck the 21 page Grimmlite20 is 11 megs because each page has a different background image!

I think a split would be best...once pdfs start getting over 20 meg it gets hinky if you are running very much else on the average PC or netbook, pad,etc

So, yeah, even 3-20 meg files would be good.

BTW-Any ETA yet?...you know I have been waiting for these as patiently as possible :)

@ADD Grognard: ETA is early this week, probably Monday or Tuesday. It'll be two volumes. The first volume looks to be around 1100 pages and 22 megs. The second volume will be around 300 pages and 30 megs. There's a lot of new material.

Excellent, glad you have the DF files.

And, Grimmlite, yeah lots of artwork but man they did a great job with that game.

Looking forward to it!
