Mazes & Perils appears to be a retro clone of the Original Collector's Box and the First Basic Set. Which is all fine and dandy, until I find it referring to "hobbits" on page 3 and referring to them as "halflings" on the same page. That's keeping to the original just a tad TOO much if you ask me.
No class as race stuff, thieves are included, exceptional strength on a roll of 18, adjusted d6 for HP, no cleric spells at 1st level, 5 alignments and only fighting men advance in combat ability (damn you Raggi!).
I couldn't find weapon damage. It's probably 1d6 no matter the weapon, but my quick perusal couldn't find it. If you find it, please point it out to me ;)
The price is free. 62 pages for a complete game. Which means I'll need to link this on the left AND include it on the difficulty scale I'm working on.
