I know exactly what I am looking for....

There was once a set of rules for non-vanciant magic that was more free form and allowed you to add up modifiers based on varying difficulties for range, area, etc. and then successes were used for effects (or effect dice). The writeup, as I recall gave an example of a mage trapped in a cage near a campfire of sleeping guards and how he could escape.

If anyone knows what I am talking about, and can give me some direction where to find it, I would be forever grateful. I know it sounds kind of 'four by five' system-like, but even Googling that, I can't find what I am looking for.

Please help,
TB

  1. It's this alternate magic system for Microlite20.

    Which should be easier to adapt than the FUDGE version of Four By Five Magic.

  2. OMGosh Talysman, thank you so much. I was surprised that anyone would know what I was talking about, and even more surprised that someone actually reads my ramblings. Again, thank you for both.

  3. Talysman, as an avid reader of your blog and fancier of your unique take on rules, I would LOVE to hear how you would adapt this alternate magic system.

  4. Just caught your request... I may have to write a longer post on my own blog, but I seem to recall that I was involved in the original thread where the author proposed this system; I had some comments there, mainly a bit about 1 feature also equaling 1 level. Some of my thinking on this evolved into the build-a-spell system I've been talking about in my blog.

  5. Cool. As always, I look forward to whatever you write about, but would love to see you elaborate on this. I am heading to your blog to check out the build-a-spell. Know I read them, cause I read all your posts, but since I wasn't gearing my own setting up to this point I may have missed, or failed to retain, some good info.
