Updated Version of Wrathofzombie’s Grim, Gritty, and Strange Sword and Sorcery Hack

Here it be: WrathofZombie’s Grim, Grity, and Strange Sword and Sorcery Frankenhack 1

The biggest change is that after playing a few session and running a dungeon dive that was very combat heavy my players and I started noticing that the Small But Vicious Dog table (while cool and awesome) bogged down things when it was being used as a creatures lifeline when they reached zero HP.

Midway through the dungeon dive I changed it to at zero HP- roll a Con check.  If you fail you pass out and are bleeding out.  If you succeed you stay conscious, but suffer -2 to all rolls.

Critical hits are double damage and that’s when you consult the Small But Vicious Dog Chart.

I did a little rearranging/clarifications to abilities as well.

Enjoy!  Hope peeps like it.  I’m glad my group is.

I am a History major attending a community college until I can get more financial aid and attend a four year school. I am living in NJ with my girlfriend who is currently wrapping up on obtaining her PhD in Toxicology. I love Star Wars, Role-playing, video games, working out, reading, writing, and hanging with my girlfriend, dog (Perfect), and two kittens (Birch and Brambles). My main focus on this site will be my discussion of Role-playing games and ideas and hopefully contribute something worth a damn.
