Basic RolePlaying/Classic Fantasy

4 posts in this topic

I've talked about it in other threads, but I'd like to take a moment to promote BRP/CF. Classic Fantasy is an attempt to bring the "classic" D&D feel to Chaosium's BRP system. If you're not familiar with it, I encourage you to give it a look (Chaosium has a free PDF quick start version of the BRP rules here: http://catalog.chaosium.com/product_info.php?cPath=70&products_id=3700 ). With the addition of Classic Fantasy, it's truly what I wish D&D had been from the beginning.

 

Anyway, there is a yahoo group for Classic Fantasy as well. I've begun converting classic D&D modules over to use with BRP/CF and uploading them to the group. B1 In Search of the Unknown and B2 Keep on the Borderlands are already available and T1-4 Temple of Elemental Evil should be posted in the next day or two. And I hope to do more, as long as I can keep burn-out at bay...

 

That's my sales pitch, although I don't work for Chaosium and have no financial stake in any of this. I just really think it is a superb game and would like to see it do well and get more attention (which it deserves).

 

Finally, I thought this would make an appropriate 1000th post! :poke:

 

 

P.s. I like BRP so much, I'd like to someday convert my other favorite games to the system (Twilight:2000, Shadowrun, Traveller, etc.). Some have already been fan-produced. Star Wars, Traveller:2300 have both at least been started, to name a couple. And of course BRP has always been the basis for Call of Cthulhu as well...

I agree: Chaosium/BRP is a great system. I have been a fan of Call of Cthulhu since it came out, and I have just upgraded to the recent rules. Just no group to run with in SE Texas currently. I get my fix from Yog Radio podcast for now. Paul of Cthulhu and company had mentioned the many supplements coming out for BRP in one podcast so I downloaded the rules. Odd thought here--If I remeber right the original fantasy game from Chaosium was Runequest.

That's correct, though I don't recall if they had it first or got it from Avalon Hill. They also did Elric! and Super World among others, all based to more or less extent on the core BRP. In fact most of the optional parts of BRP today come from the predecessors.
