I’m John Laviolette, also known as “Talysman the Ur-Beatle”. The Nine and Thirty Kingdoms has been a brainstorming, testing, and feedback point for my old school fantasy role-playing game ideas, as well as an occasional stage for my rants.
My primary interest is Original Dungeons & Dragons, in particular the first three booklets. That’s right: I play with the original d6 hit dice for everyone, all weapons do 1d6 damage, low or no bonuses for ability scores, no spells higher than 6th level except as scrolls. I focus on the original three classes + a modified version of the thief, but I’m lenient with additional classes as long as they are mostly just mods of the original classes, with about the same number of abilities.
If any of those statements enrages you, you should probably move along…
I have some material for download here, and will be adding more. If you need to contact me about something else, this page is open for comments. I will delete spam, though.
