Fan creates USR/ D&D mash-up


A USR fan over at Tabletop Diversions has created a downloadable guide to creating D&D characters with the system.

John Yorio, who has been featured a few times on The Trollish Delver, has taken classic Moldvay D&D and mixed it with the simple rules presented in USR to help players who fancy a good old-fashioned dungeoncrawl.

"Like chocolate and peanut butter, I think Moldvay-era classes go great with USR (as I've written several times before) for some dungeon crawl fun," said Yorio on his blog.

He has included rules for creating fighters, rogues, cleric and magic-users with races like dwarves, elves and halflings. He has even included rules for casting spells using the USR system.

So if you're feeling like you want that old school dungeon hacking vibe with a bit of a difference, you can either download the pocketmod or the PDF.
