Pregens are an art-form. Meet Bosclori

So, in an effort to get more interest in my achiest heartbreaker RPG, Crypts & Cryts, I have been working on pregens to get kids new to the system up an running fast. The secret to a good pre-gen is consisely baking the rules into them as best you can. So I put little snippets of info here and there. This sheet even introduces the core mechanic by having you roll a weird die to get a horse.

Another thing is the pregens don't have any backgrounds from our chart, so they will feel unique if they join a party mid campaign. Since Bosclori here is a dwarf, I added little bit of world-building; dwarves have children in a very unique way.

If you want to get into Cry&Cry, please send a SASE to the link below.

Or shoot me a request at the below gmail or even my Blusky to ask to be in my Discord server and actually play this crazy thing!

Share good posts with good goblins. Claytonian at the gmails.

Hey your system looks fun, and your pregen-with-rules intruiged me enough to have a quick look at it :)
I really like the idea of HP also being a dice modifier resource, I've wanted to tinker with that idea myself but I've not yet managed to come up with a way to make it work in my current game which is % based (heavily modified WFRP 4e)

HP burn is one of my favorite mechanics. We started using it in our B/X game too.

For D%, maybe 5% per HP burnt would work.
