ADHD Update!

 I've been fiddling around with my OD&D based house rules; Adventuring in Distressingly Hazardous Dungeons, and I think they're ready to be shared in an updated form. 

Notable changes:

  • I've added a simple (and optional) background system to help flesh out characters.
  • I've changed the spell system, quite frankly I thought the spell point based method was a bit too involved and complex for my tastes. Now, spells are similar to those presented in Empire of the Petal Throne, with a limited number of uses per day depending on the spell. However, these spells in ADHD are also completely level-less, with exceptionally powerful spells having certain restrictions to avoid being overpowered. This does mean a level 1 Prophet can cast Resurrection though.
  • I've removed most of the playable species except for the core four of Human, Elf, Dwarf, and Halfling, since frankly I wasn't very pleased with how the others turned out, they might be added back later, but maybe not.
  • I've changed the level progression system and also added many optional rules for other level progression systems.
  • I reworked the referee's section to be much smaller and simpler, though as always it can be ignored for the referee's own personal preferences.
