    I really like this idea and would like to gather up some friends and try this out to see how we like but as I went through the information given, I noticed that some key information was missing: the monster index and the amount of exp per level.

    If you don't have this information I could just adapt a DND leveling system for the characters and take the creatures stats for the actual game and nerf them down and fill out the rest of the needed stats.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    When were you going to tell us the details? I love DnD, and have been waiting patiently since you posted this.

    Please Sir, may I have some more?

    you can check out what I've done so far on Google Docs:

    The Elder Scrolls: D20

    Yeah... there's kinda about 100 pages of content there.

    ERMAGERD!!! A Skyrim tabletop game! I didn't know it until now , but deep down I always wanted this since Skyrim came out... Anyway, this may get a special section in the website I am designing. Would it be possible for all the info to be put into PDF files when it's done (u know, one for player-specific info, one for DM info, etc.)?

    Yeah that's the plan

    Doing an overhaul of the damage system to simplify things a bit and integrate more dice rolling. Also making some changes to Enchanting to streamline that and be able to add Staff enchanting.

    Hey ponty

    I was just wondering if you would be okay with me making standard Character sheets (to be available to the public on this discussion). Just asking before I waste more time than it's worth to make it really nice rather than one that would be used by me alone.

    If you like. I was going to make new ones myself after I finish sorting out the new enchanting and Power systems and then re-doing skill/perk/potion descriptions to match.

    I think it'll have to be a few pages (2-3) because there's a lot of stuff we need to include. On my first one I completely forgot about armor!

    Made a Facebook page for the RPG, I'll be posting most of my updates there from now on. Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/tesd20

    Ok! I'll get on that, and send a rough draft when it's done. Tell me what ill need to fix when I do.

    I've made some pretty significant changes to the game since I migrated it to Facebook! I just finished grappling/pushing/grabbing (under Combat/Special Attacks) yesterday. Would really appreciate some feedback!

    So, is there going to be a big update on how it all works exactly, like how a generic round plays out? I'm kinda confused....

    Goto the facebook page, the mechanics are outlined there; a written example of it in play can be found here:

    Is there anything on Race stats/special abilities/skill bonuses/starting racial spells etc.? Couldn't find anything like that in the following link JakeG gave me.

    Thus far what has been done is amazing Ponty!

    uh, maybe have a look in the Character Creation and Leveling Up doc in the folder you just linked?

    Ha, it's okay, I managed to stop licking the monitor like a mong long enough to click the 'open' button...

    Still working on it actually. Ran a level 10 playtest 2 weeks ago which was a lot of fun but revealed a lot of balance issues at higher levels.

    With the system basically finished, I've made some updates to the original post!

    I do like the D20 system, so I guess I will offer this up to my group at some point.

    It will probably work very similarly to the other D20 games, such as Pathfinder, Thieves' World, D20 Cthulu, etc. If you haven't played any of those games, you should go play them, too! RPGs are great!

    This looks really good! Really good! In fact, I just tried making a quick character. Unfortunatly, the character sheet is a bit off from the information in the documents. But still, really good!

    Which character sheet were you using? This one in the Character Sheets folder in Drive is the current one.

    I was using that one, but the Character Creation guide doesn't completly match up.

    Gonna have to try this when I get friends that are interested in playing pen&paper Rpgs and stuff.
