May '86? Would this be Son of Toon that's being referenced?Toon now has a couple of supplements. How much can you add in terms of new monsters and adventures in such a simple game?
Or, let inspiration rather than expectations determine the page count, because the rest of the book will be padding. (SJG definitely had a thing for 128 pagers.)So, I guess what it comes down to is: you can add a lot to a very simple game, but the more you add the less likely it's the same quality as the original.
Yes, doing this does have the unintended side effect of giving me a huge list of other things I'd like to read. Even after I finish this, I could probably spend several years more just checking out all the stuff referenced.It took them into a sequel trilogy, actually. And a prequel trilogy. Fantasy publishers like their trilogies!
But, thank you for reminding me to add all those to my Amazon wish list.
No, just Strikes Again and Silly Stuff so far. Still enough to be notable.May '86? Would this be Son of Toon that's being referenced?
Frank Mentzer talked about that in his Q&A thread over at Dragonsfoot. I think (IIRC) he said that he wasn't aware of anyone who had ever done it "fairly" (i.e. without Monty Hauling or generous houseruling). It would be quite the endurance test (which you of all people can probably relate to ).Dragon Issue 109: May 1986
TSR Previews: At last. The immortals set is finally here. Now you can take your D&D games all the way, and actually win the game. Godhood is just the beginning. You've got to work your way up to supreme deity, Twice. Have you got the skill (and patience ) to manage it. I'll wager the number of groups who've managed to do it fairly from 1st level are even fewer than those who completed Knightmare.
