I just happened to be looking through things and noticed that the first RPG I wrote and published was listed on here. http://rpggeek.com/rpgitem/98405/perilous-journeys-skill-bas...

It is nice someone took the time to enter it on the site. The RPG is now my company name as well, so maybe I should rename the fantasy game . . .

Oh, and here is a review of the fantasy game. Warning, the review is in German (which oddly enough I find cooler than if it had been reviewed in English.)

I was doing some Indiana Jones'ing on historical documents (old rpgs) and i ran across your post. It looks like the original is gone (circa 2011 or some such) but i found some reference to the blog in waybackmachine and a probably horrible translation on google translate:

here it is in all it's ancient and mistranslated glory....

Perilous Journeys Skill Based Fantasy Role Playing
Retro-Schmieden und Klon-Labore - Teil 1

"Retro-Schmieden und Klon-Labore" ist eine neue Artikelserie auf Lecker THAC0!, die zukünftig in loser Folge einzelne Retro-Klone vorstellen wird. Intention ist nicht eine umfassende Rezension, sondern eine kurze Vorstellung des Systems und - sofern bereits erschienen - des Zusatzmaterials.

Bei Perilous Journeys handelt es sich um einen recht neuen Retro-Klon aus der Feder von Jamie Hardy. Perilous Journeys emuliert allerdings keine historische D&D-Version, Vorbild für das "Skill Based Fantasy Role Playing" untertitelte Werk ist vielmehr Gary Gygax' Lejendary Adventures-Reihe. Gygax entwickelte dieses sehr einfache Regelsystem eigentlich als Grundlage für ein Computerspiele, machte dann aber doch ein klassisches Pen & Paper-Regelwerk nebst eigener Spielwelt Learth (für Lejendary Earth) daraus. Zwischen 1999 und 2006 erschienen bei Hekaforge Productions sowie bei Troll Lord Games eine ganze Reihe Regelbücher, Abenteuer und Hintergrundbände für Lejendary Adventures, wobei darunter auch einige d20 Produkte sind.

Das Perilous Journeys Regelwerk umfasst 129 Seiten und ist in die Abschnitte Character Creation, Spell Descriptions, Game Play und Appendixes unterteilt.

Bei der Charaktererschaffung stehen Menschen, Elfen, Wildelfen, Zwerge, Gnome, Fomorians (Halb-Riesen) und Lurikeen (Feenwesen) als Rassen zur Verfügung. Auch die Klassenauswahl ist reichhaltig: Kleriker, Schamanen, Ritter, Kämpfer, Waldläufer, Minnesänger, Banditen, Assassinen, Diebe, Hexenmeister, Nekromanten und Zauberer stehen zur Auswahl. Auch ein typisches Lejendary Adventures-Merkmal wird bei Perilous Journeys übernommen: die Gilden. Grundsätzlich wird davon ausgegangen, dass jeder Charakter Mitglied einer Gilde ist, die Charakterentwicklung wird dann im Aufstieg in der Hierarchie der Gilde abgebildet.

Die Beschreibung der Zaubersprüche nimmt mehr als 50 Seiten in Anspruch und ist in die Bereiche Dimensionologie, Elementarismus, Verzauberung, Nekromantie, Schamanismus, Zauberei und Theurgie unterteilt.

Der eigentliche Regelteil behandelt die üblichen Themen, von Traglast über Bewegung, Kampf, Erfahrungspunkte und Fertigkeitsentwicklung. Perilous Journeys verwendet vier Attribute: Health, Agility, Mind und Speed. Dazu kommen rund 40 Abilities bzw.Skills (Perilous Journeys verwendet beide Begriffe), sowie Edges (Vorteile) und Flaws (Nachteile). Das System ist prozentbasiert und verwendet bei der Charaktererschaffung ein Kaufsystem.

In den Anhängen finden sich optionale, detailliertere Kampfregeln, Regeln zur Entwicklung eigener Klassen, magische Gegenstände, Monster- und Schatzlisten.

Das Regelwerk ist durchgehend schwarz-weiss gestaltet und mit teils sehr gelungenen, stimmungsvollen Illustrationen versehen. Man merkt dem Buch an, dass eine Menge Herzblut darin steckt.

Auf der Homepage von Perilous Journeys kann das Regelwerk gratis als pdf-Datei heruntergeladen werden, eine Printversion ist bei Lulu erhältlich.

Perilous Journey's Skill Based Fantasy Role Playing
Retro Forges and Clone Labs - Part 1

"Retro-Smithing and Cloning Labs" is a new article series on Delicious THAC0 !, which will present individual retro-clones in a row in the future. Intention is not a comprehensive review, but a brief presentation of the system and - if already published - the additional material.

Perilous Journeys is a brand new retro clone written by Jamie Hardy. However, Perilous Journeys does not emulate a historical D & D version, the model for "Skill Based Fantasy Role Playing" subtitled work is rather Gary Gygax 'Lejendary Adventures series. Gygax actually developed this very simple control system as the basis for a computer game, but then made it a classic Pen & Paper rules and their own game world Learth (for Lejendary Earth). Between 1999 and 2006, Hekaforge Productions and Troll Lord Games released a whole series of rulebooks, adventures and background volumes for Lejendary Adventures, including some d20 products.

The Perilous Journeys framework consists of 129 pages and is divided into the sections Character Creation, Spell Descriptions, Game Play and Appendixes.

In the character creation, humans, elves, wild elves, dwarfs, gnomes, fomorians (half-giants) and lurikeen (fairies) are available as races. The class selection is also extensive: clerics, shamans, knights, fighters, rangers, minnesingers, bandits, assassins, thieves, warlocks, necromancers and wizards are all available. Also a typical Lejendary Adventures trait is taken over by Perilous Journeys: the Guilds. Basically, it is assumed that each character is a member of a guild, the character development is then displayed in the ascent in the hierarchy of the guild.

The Spell Description takes more than 50 pages and is divided into the areas of Dimensionology, Elementalism, Enchantment, Necromancy, Shamanism, Wizardry, and Theurgy.

The actual rule section deals with the usual topics, from load to movement, combat, experience points and skill development. Perilous Journeys uses four attributes: Health, Agility, Mind and Speed. There are also about 40 abilities or skills (perilous journeys uses both terms), as well as edges (benefits) and flaws (disadvantages). The system is percent based and uses a buying system in character creation.

The appendices include optional, more detailed combat rules, rules for developing your own classes, magical items, monster and treasure lists.

The rules and regulations are black and white throughout and have some very good, atmospheric illustrations. You notice the book that there is a lot of passion in it.

On the homepage of Perilous Journeys, the rules can be downloaded for free as a pdf file, a print version is available at Lulu.
