New Dungeon Fantasy set showed up today. I’d forgotten I’d backed the Kickstarter. I’m liking it.

It’s basically GURPS with non-fantasy elements stripped out, and it maintains its focus on dungeon crawls.

Creating a GURPS character can be like plotting out your next 4 years of college courses in granular detail; points, prerequisites, what are you trying to accomplish by the end, etc.

Dungeon Fantasy uses character class archetypes as templates to make the process go quicker.

I’d reckon character creation will still take a while, probably akin to making a 10th-level D&D5 character on the spot.

That’s about as far as I’ve gotten at the moment.

EDIT May 18, 2020

I’m putting my set up for sale. It’s not going to get played in either of my game groups. So it’s time to let it go. It’s a pristine set.
