HackMaster Basic was released with the presumption that players wanted to learn the game – not the character generation system. As such, this version includes a selection of ready-to-play characters to facilitate rapid play.
Let’s face it. Learning how to build a character in any system takes some trial and error. You really have to play the game to know how to build a Player Character.
If you’ve played HackMaster Basic and enjoy the game, HackMaster Basic Plus is the perfect step up. Here’s some of the added features:
• Character Generation
• Full details for advancing up to 10th level
• Extra Equipment choices
• More Spells
• More Skills
• Expanded Combat Options
• 12 Special Combat Moves
• Crunchier Initiative System
• PCs can survive past zero hit points
• Rules for Shooting into Melee
For the GameMaster
• Expanded Treasure Tables
• Disease Rules
