Hack'D & Slash'D - Revised Edition

ADD TO WISHLIST >

Hack’D & Slash’D is a lean, fast, flexible, old-school fantasy RPG with several modern flourishes. While a previous edition of this game was rooted in the OGL, this new edition uses an original game engine, and is released under a Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike license, allowing you to take, modify, and expand the game as much as you’d like. Hack’D & Slash’D:

  • Uses 1d12 exclusively with one-roll resolution.
  • Has flexible character building, allowing you to mix and match traits and tags to create any character you can imagine.
  • Employs an innovative magic system that allows you to easily track mana and make strategic decisions about how and when to use magic.
  • Includes simple and flexible rules for creatures, allowing you to quickly generate foes on the fly, or to develop more nuanced and unusual monsters, as needed.
  • Provides simple, consistent rules for checks and task resolution with concrete guidance to resolve all common game situations. 

This update expands the game to 48 pages, adds character options, simplifies and clarifies some mechanics, adds a complete bestiary, expands spellcasting options, and gives you more stuff to both hack and slash. A print edition is also now available, with links posted on my blog.

**** I can’t rate or review this (I assume because I’m also a publisher), but since I noticed this has yet to get any ratings or reviews I wanted to throw in my 2 cents to those debating this (massive $1) purchase. I’m not going to break down the entire system, as the preview gives you a taste of that…what I do want to say, is don’t be fooled, this isn’t just another (ad nauseam) black hack fantasy…er…hack. It is an all new system entirely, anchored in something that feels familiar…but is almost entirely different and fresh. If you haven’t found your perfect lite old school / new rules fantasy system, or if you simply enjoy seeing someone do fantasy lite in a new way that is simple but not simplex, this is definitely worth the read. It is fully playable as is has more mechanical depth than would first appear, and magic is very extensive and varied (for those who enjoy high fantasy spell casters).

It needs a bit of refining, the “bestiary” is surprising disappointing for...See more

Well, golly! This is all kind of you to say. I'm shocked that anyone is a 'huge fan' of my art - I've always assumed people put up with it, and that they see it as serviceable :)

I probably err on the side of minimalism in some ways (as you point out), and I suppose that is most obvious in the case of monsters. Your feedback is taken and appreciated.

I’ve been a fan of your art for a long time. The cover of SR 2nd Ed. is one of my favorites. For me, art makes or breaks a game. The art in all your games perfectly matches the writing style and sets the mood, making you want to play in that world. Keep doing your thing!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
