Even with the superfluous stuff that I never really used or more to the point, used once and then said “never again” like the Weapon Mastery rules or the skill system. Log in or sign up in seconds. When one compares it to the bulk of TSR’s output in the early 90s, most of which were clearly intended as mere pieces in a larger product line, the Cyclopedia seems all the more rulex.

It is quite a lovely work. Will Mistretta July 1, at 4: However, while I don’t love it as much as the rpg. Nick July 1, at 4: Originally Posted by rounser.

The D&D Rules Cyclopedia is now available for Print On Demand : DnD

I’m tempted to buy this. I agree that it’s a shame, though. On a side note, it must remain popular with a lot of people: There is one element of BECMI I’ve considered borrowing though, and that is that combat goes in phases – that is that everyone shoots, the everyone moves, then everyone attacks.


I tried to read the writeup you linked to, but it looks like the site is gone now.

I keep saying that I’ll write a program to simplify things, but I since I so rarely use the rules I just can’t cyclopeida to get up the motivation. I subsequently tracked down 4 paper copies of the RC of varying quality.

This includes art commissions, modules, maps, podcasts, streams, etc, whether you are charging for them cyclopedi not. That said I think the wrestling subsystem, and most of the non-mastery combat mods work well in most games I’ve gotten a lot of use out of both of the mass combat systems.

Way too many monsters. Only a member of this blog may post a cycllpedia. Tim Brannan July 1, at 3: It’s arguably the best RPG in the world. I’d gladly play it again!

Rules Cyclopedia (Basic D&D)

It’s among my most treasured items, don’t even want my players touching it thus ruling out much of a chance for running it. Right amount of monsters. I’m using Labyrinth Lord as my simple system of choice but I plan to use the RC for if the players ever start rubbing up against the highest levels in LL. Combat also slower than 3E, even slower than 4E, making it the slowest combat of any edition.

About the right number of spells if you don’t include the Spell Compendiums, too many magic items in the core rules.

And 4e and 5e go as fast as the others except that they tend to suffer from number inflation especially at higher levels that add pointless time to the burn down slogging, grinding. This features nifty weirdness like Races as Classes.

Anthony Los Angeles July 1, at 2: The second is the amount of splat included in the game. I also like the art quite rjles lot. I still love the maps and some the Mystara goofiness of it all.

I’m also very pleased that it left out the Immortals rules – you had the rules for ascending to godhood, and a strong implication that that’s really where a particular character should be retired from PChood. Jer July 1, at 3: Weighing in at just over pages, it was also a complete game, containing all you needed to create and play characters from levels 1 through Things like the skills and Weapon Mastery don’t do much for me, but all in all I could and have run campaigns with it for many, many years.
