[ACT] What are you reading?
#44
Moldvay's Basic D&D. Thinking about simplifying thief skills into 2 in 6 at 1st level for Stealth, Stealing, Traps, Hear Noise and 1 in 6 Cypher and 4 in 6 Climb. Each level Thief can add one pip to one ability. All other classes/races get 1 in 6 except Cypher.... although Magic-Throwers might be able to acquire it at 4th maybe? Exceptions are Dwarfs get Traps, Hobbits get Stealth and Pixies get Stealing.

All weapons do 1d6 exploding damage. 2-handed weapons do +2 damage but are -2 to hit. There are HP kickers. 10 to most, 5 to Magic-Tossers and Elves (which I'll call Ilfs) and none to Pixies. Maybe 15 to Fighters.

Critical table. Firing into melee means making 2 rolls. 1 to hit something. 2 to hit what you aimed at or you hit a friendly.

Initiative more like Holmes (use Dex).

Swords, plate, metal shields are more expensive.

Perhaps a single Saving throw? Norms 17, Humans 16, Elves/Pixies 15, Dwarffs/Hobbitlings 14.

Heavy use of Charisma in encounters.

Pixie: flight (3 turns max), 1d4 damage (not exploding), Non-Alfar hit them at -2, generally gain surprise, invisibility 1x per day per level. Gain magic spells at the rate clerics do but for MU spells. No hp kicker. 1d3 hp per level.
