Frank Mentzer's Empyrea will be BECMI compatible

Post by Havard » Sun Aug 13, 2017 8:24 pm

See the announcement here: viewtopic.php?f=48&t=18257

One really cool thing about this release is that it will not only be for 5E, but also compatible with the Red Box (or BECMI).

I know that Frank used the Immortal Rules in his home campaign. I wonder if we will see other elements in this release that will bring specific associations to BECMI beyond the compatibility? :)

Note that the setting is supposed to be compatible with 5e as well, so it will likely restrict itself to cases that are common to both, unless Frank is willing to design additional rules for either.

I believe it's Frank's intention to release digital supplements with system-specific rules.
