The first draft of Microlite75 2.0 Extended is now available for download in the Donor area of Microlite20 Download Library. Microlite75 2.0 Extended Draft 1 is not quite as far along as I would like thanks to a lot of real life stuff in the last week (a major fire at a neighbor's house on Christmas day, tornadoes in the area affecting some of my wife's animal rescue friends, one unscheduled doctor visit for my wife just to get a prescription renewed but it still took a morning, etc.). However, it's is far enough along for donors to see where it is going -- and I did promise something before the new year. Hey, I made it with a few hours to spare. (Yes, I known that illo is for the Standard edition, but I'm running out of time and energy.)
Microlite75 2.0 Extended is a version of Microlite74 Extended with a more standard 0e advancement and experience system. Extended adds three classes so far (Assassin, Barbarian, Monk) and the house rules I used in the late 1970s.
