SYNOPSIS:

ZERO LEVEL PLAYER RULES: A Guide to Creating Zero Level Players for OSRIC and other OSR retro-clone games. I created these Zero Level Player Rules as a helpful way of introducing new players to role playing games and as a useful way to form a new adventuring party, forged from a close knit group, e.g. all from one community and not just random strangers. I provide a detailed, step by step character creation technique, with new features such as player origins, created with the intention of helping players invest in their avatar and of tying the characters together. I also include an adventure to help the newly created PCs bond as a group.

In “The Lair of the Toad”, the players are a group of friends who have grown up together and on the fateful night in question they meet a traveler, in the person of would-be eleven sage Alura Morrowgan, who seeks their assistance in recovering her heirloom signet ring, which was lost in the market square.

The players realize it’s time to put down the blacksmith’s hammer, step out from behind the bar, and stop alphabetizing those scrolls for their master. It’s time for the players to strike out on their own path, to start writing their own story with their friends by their side, to earn a name for themselves and their adventuring company, it’s time for…adventure!

This 20 page adventure module includes:

  • This 20 page rules supplement and adventure module contains all the information you need to create and play fledgling zero level player characters.
  • This supplement also includes a carefully crafted set of Six Pre-Generated Zero Level Player Characters, ready for immediate use in the game by players or the GM. Each of the six players is presented fully ready to play with all of the necessary stats and gear, as well as included “to hit” and saving throw tables.
  • We also include a Professional Adventurer Charter which the GM can complete and hand out to their players to commemorate their advancement from zero level to first level in their chosen character class; a special way to mark their ascendancy to their new role as a hero in your campaign!
  • To help the GM and players get right into the action, the supplement includes an all new original introductory module, full of fun and adventure but tuned to the skills and capabilities of neophyte adventurers. The adventure is fully detailed and ready for immediate use with very little preparation by the GM or the players! It is easily playable in one session of no more than 2-3 hours, so it’s great for a night of gaming enjoyment!
