Whitehack and Scarlet Heroes are two of my absolute favorite D&D old school games. I like the idea of the positive double roll and the freeform character creation and magic system of Whitehack. I appreciate the neat attack roll, the skill system, and the changes to damage rolls for solo playing of Scarlet Heroes.
So here is my monstrous hybrid child of these two interesting games. WH = Whitehack (2nd edition)
SH = Scarlet Heroes

Character Creation


I would make a complete game out of this without the need to reference the originals. Whitehack’s mechanics are open content under the OGL but Scarlet Heroes does not use an open license. What a shame.
