EDIT: SMALL TOWN GOTHIC is officially out on itch!!! And I’ve released a demon compendium so you have some fresh monsters for the American setting! There’s some more information about both further down the thread!
I wanted to write a one-page game (referee side not included) where players make pacts with demons to cast spells. Is this down anyone’s alley?
Here are some random mechanics:
- The rolls on this sheet are all player-side, including defending against attacks or spells.
- STR is the attack bonus for melee attacks and the defense bonus for ranged attacks. The opposite is true for DEX.
- Damage and hit-points are static, and they scale up linearly.
Initially I wrote this to use only 1d6 to make it more accessible, but I felt like d20 has better margins of error. Either/or seem fine to play, since only the referee has to know the precise chances of success.
