I’ve mentioned that 1974 era OD&D is one of the games I’m most eager to run, and it looks like I’m finally going to have the chance. These are the house rules I intend to use.
OD&D has a free-wheeling toolbox feeling. However, the default races bring a distinctly Tolkien flavour to the game that I find off-putting, and frankly, kind of boring. So, I’ve developed an alternate approach to species creation that I hope will add more flavour to your game, and more prompts for world building.
One of my white whales is to run an OD&D campaign using the three LBBs, or at the very least a retroclone like Full Metal Plate Mail or Delving Deeper. I've never been able to find a form fillable PDF version of the character sheet, so I had a friend help me out. Here it is for your downloading pleasure.
