Battlesystem vs the Retro Clones


I was reading up on Battlesystem and when I noticed that they talk how it works with BECMI D&D. Playing around with it I see it working with Swords & Wizardry, Labyrinth Lord, and of course OSRIC. Can work with the D20 as long as you realize that THACO means whatever you need to hit a 20 AC.

If I can figure out the math behind the damage chart I bet I can make a retro clone out of it.

That would be so awesome! I remember playing quite a bit of Battlesystem on my friend's pool table back when I was in high-school.

What are you waiting for?

North Texas RPG Con concluded this weekend and I have promised to run an old school fantasy miniatures event next year. This would be perfect.

Yes, this would be great Rob...after you finish your adventure.

That would be cool! I was trying to figure out a way to use Hordes of the Things for D&D battles.
