I want to say that Magpie Codex is for me one of the best role playing games I've ever played.
There are two files, one black and white for easy printing and one full color file, which is the best. The artwork inside the book is excellent.
The character creation takes 10 minutes. There are all the races and classes you know from the D&D games. There is a campaign world that has its own races and classes.
The system takes all the good stuff from d20 game and makes such an easy RPG, you can learn in an hour or less. You could say that all the rules fit in ONE page!
You will need all the dice from your D&D game(d20, d12, s10, d8, s6, d4) to play this game.
The characters are levelling up to 10th level. There are no feats or skills, but there are some very practical stats with the names:
Feats of Agility
Feats of Prowess
Feats of Persuasion
Feats of Knowledge
Feats of Perception.
The rules are very easy to read and learn. There are easy to use tables for creating your own races, classes, treasures and monsters. There is a small bestiary in the book and spell lists for all the classes. But they are so easy to read and use, not like the d20 game.
There is a free adventure and the Doom sword campaign you can buy.
The game has its community for news and other stuff.
There re two print versions of Magpie Codex: a black & white and a full color version, you can buy from the publisher’s webpage.
I'm very pleased with this game. Now I can play D&D adventures with 10 minutes preparation.
I've bought both the pdf and the full color print version, which is amazing. It is a very HIGH quality book!
Now I'm waiting for the Bestiary and the other expansions.
