This is a game set in a medieval world where the gods have either fled or have withdrawn their blessings and protection from the majority of the population. As a result it is coming under increasing attack from Diabolic forces. A number of Diabolic Princes are competing to convert or conquer the nations of men and all that stands between them and victory are a few bands of heroes.
These travel from land to land on quests to drive back the forces of the Diabolic Princes. Sometimes they are successful, oftimes they are not.
Some readers will quickly recognise that these rules owe a considerable debt to the Diablo series of computer rpg’s, especially Diablo II. Unlike the previous D&D version though, these rules and the setting have not slavishly copied the computer game, but transferred its core ideas to a simpler format and similar setting.
Microlite D20 Game Engine
This is a reduced version of the D20 rules that has been designed to be quick and easy to play. The goal was to create a simpler game, but one where many of the resources of core D20 (monsters, spells, adventures and equipment) could be used without any serious conversion.
The rules are here: diabolical-d20
