I'm generating a player character party using several different systems in order to decide which system to use. Here I'm considering Lamentations of the Flame Princess (LotFP).

LotFP is one of many retroclone RPGs that take early versions of Dungeons & Dragons and tweak them in certain ways. Some of these have distinctive features that distinguish them from their original sources. LotFP is certainly distinctive, taking the game into the realm of "weird fantasy" which has a much darker feel than its original source.

I'm generating a player character party using several different systems in order to decide which system to use. Here I'm considering Advanced Fighting Fantasy.

The Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks were some of my earliest exposure to the wider world of role-playing games through their spin-off title: Fighting Fantasy: The Introductory Role-Playing Game. This basic system emulated the gamebooks, but was superseded by a more developed set of rules that allowed greater customisation: Advanced Fighting Fantasy.

I'm generating a player character party using several different systems in order to decide which system to use. Here I'm considering Basic Dungeons & Dragons.

My vision of a four-character Fighter/Cleric/Mage/Thief party is in fact completely defined by this very game. The 1983 Dungeons & Dragons Set 1: Basic Rules was one of my earliest exposures to role-playing games and has been a vital part of my development as a gamer. So it is necessary that I put this RPG on my shortlist.

How to Host a Dungeon is a wonderful tool for randomly generating large-scale underground networks, populated with denizens and treasures, with a built-in history that evolves naturally as part of the creation process.
