And So it Was That I Could Not Find My D&D 5e POD Basic Rules...
So, back in the way back I ordered a Print on Demand (POD) version of the Dungeons & Dragons 5e Basic Rules via Lulu. Yes, someone had put together an at cost version of the D&D Basic Rules. Of course, I couldn't find it when I needed it.
Now, it only was the Player's side of the rules, not the Dungeon Master's part. Which means it wouldn't have done all the work I needed it to do anyway.
So, I did what any enterprising gamer who has a project in the works that requires knowledge of the 5e rules... I put together a personal version on Lulu.
I followed the steps here, but the cover didn't work for me, so I had to improvise. Being that it's not for sale and just personal use, I figured the cover didn't matter much. We'll see when it get's delivered in about a week.
Yes, I have the core 3 5e books, but I want something simpler to get my feet wet. Besides, if I'm going to work the angle of "5e from an OSR perspective", less certainly is more...
