With the recent announcement by Wizards of The Coast that they are now permitting the authorship of Dungeons & Dragons 5e compatible material, one of the first products out of the gate that caught my eye was Stan Shinn's Dungeonesque:
"In the 70's and 80's, RPG box sets with booklets were all the rage. In recent years, many game publishers have shifted to publishing 200+ page RPG hardbacks instead of the much-beloved booklet format of prior years. Hardbacks have a great shelf-life, but many of us miss the convenience of smaller books which have streamlined mechanics and easily lay flat the game table."Already written and already financed through IndieGogo, this game is being offered primarily as in either PDF or POD formats.
"We've been waiting for the 5e OGL/SRD for some time, and had this secret project already in the works! This project leverages OGL content to create two 8.5x11" booklets — a Player's Guide and a Gamemaster's Guide — each between 36-44 pages, which together form a complete RPG system that is fully 5e compatible. There are four standard classes: Fighter, Wizard, Cleric, and Thief and the game can advance those characters up to level 15."A $5 investment will get you the PDFs of the two booklets, while $10 also gets you the code to purchase both, at-cost, in print.
