Toldara is the name of my campaign world. It's basically an amalgamation of ideas from all of the years I have spent playing D&D over the various editions. I never went into any great details about the world or house rules until the last several years. I think it started with the whole open game movement. It kind of rekindled the old creative spirit of using a grab bag of rules from various sources to run a game. Of course, the old grognards never bothered with needing "official" permission to use parts of various game rules in their campaigns. It just happened during the course of play.
In the old days, I used to switch between games of D&D and AD&D. Now that I've started this work on my own campaign world I noticed something somewhat funny. I am typing up two sets of player documents for this world. It dawned on me that I am making a "basic version" and an "advanced version" of the players guide for my world. The advanced version started with 3E, moved to 3.5E, and is in the process of getting updated to Pathfinder. The basic version will either be based on Microlite20 or the Classic Fantasy Role Playing Game system I am helping to design.
I just thought it was somewhat funny to notice that old habits never die...
A blog featuring the game related ramblings and ideas of a role-playing gamer since 1980. My interests include many games and gaming related topics, but my main focus will be on Open Ended Original Edition Old School Fantasy Adventure Sandbox Role Playing Games (OEOEFASRPG™) The Open-Ended Sandbox Exploration of Dungeons, Wilderness and Cities. Occasionally, other topics outside of gaming will be discussed here as well.
