Please try again later. I love this game! It’s a loving tribute as well as parody of a time long ago of the Golden Age of table top role playing games. Old school advanxed its finest! Blackburn and first published in in independent gaming magazine Shadis. Many of the strips were based on actual gaming group experiences that were submitted by readers. Once player has build points, they can not only increase their stats at a cost of 1 BP per. There is even an added optional character background generator chart that determines their birth order, number of siblings, social status, wealth and more.
One of the more interesting and original major character build yackmaster of Hackmaster is the use of Honor. Greater levels of starting Honor also give additional build points and too much or too little Honor for your levels results in very bad things happening.
Too much and the Gods Gawds see you as being a bit uppity and will smack you down, too little and you are Dishonorable and are as pond scum.
A player can spend 10 Points of Honor to add his Honor Die to any die roll, but the Player has to declare it ahead of the roll.
Basically a mulligan similar to some recent games that use hero or cinematic points. You regain Honor only through role-playing your alignment, race, class and going out adventuring. Another difference is that there are 7, not 6 basic starting stats. One being how magnetic and likeable you are personality-wise and the other a measure of your physical beauty, The rest is straight forward If I had to dock a point off the rating, it is for the parody nature of the game.
This is more geared towards older gamers or fans of KDOT. This is not to say that the rules for this cannot be adapted for other fantasy settings, but it does take a considerable amount of effort, perhaps more than some would be willing to put up with.
So keep this in mind when choosing this game for your group. Other than that, enjoy! One person found this helpful. Wonderful quality and has all the pages and the coupons in the back: D very happy about hackmsater Works well with Hackmaster.
It’s a book that isn’t in print any more and the quality said “good” or “fair” so I wasn’t expecting much, but when I got it the book was in almost pristine condition. There was a single scuff on the cover, but other than that no pages are even creased.
Another purchase that was what I was looking for and in great condition. Still keeping my eyes out for similar product. Kenzer has brought those days back to life. The game is not a joke! Hackmaster lets the GM, be the GM and keep the game on track however necessary. The game has enough humor built in to keep the sessions enjoyable without being overly ‘stupid’.
This game is essentially an update of 1st and 2nd edition dungeons and dragons for those who prefer the original system to the new D20 system. As such, it does a nice sdvanced of collecting and representing those rules. On the other hand, the game is also a parody of those games. The writing is intentionally stylistically poor, the layout and organization can be daunting, and the book is incredibly obsessed with tables and charts and dice rolling.
For example there are tables on whether your birth is legitimate, tables on how many siblings you have, and tables on whether your parents were competent as parents, and whether their parenting hurt or harmed you. While you can play the game straight as written, sdvanced still really is a hackmasteer.
I know people who view the book as serious and run games using it, and I know people who bought it, laughed the whole time reading it, and have no intention of ever playing it. If you’ve never used the old Dungeons and Dragons systems before, be warned that the hcakmaster systems were kludged together, inconsistent, and often counterintuitive. This game happily embraces all of these hackmasger, making it somewhat daunting for a newcomer to understand.
When I bought this book it was originally for the comedy factor. Several new Character classes and races are included plus SO much more. Plus the book is written brilliantly!
It is not only easy to read, but also enjoyable!
I couldn’t put it down! There are elements of this book that include Gaming strategies and attitudes for play. Even if you don’t play the game, if you play any RPG, you should get this book! There is a LOT in here about how to be a successful gamer and have fun. See all 19 reviews. Customers who hackmaxter this item also viewed. Hackmaster Hacklopedia of Beasts.
