QADD is intended to be a

very rules lite system for

pick-up-and play gaming.
The purpose is to have fun,
and kick some dungeon ass.

Quick And Dirty Dungeons v1
Written by Charlie Fleming.

The Basics:
In QADD, to determine the outcome of various situations will
require generating a score by rolling a die or dice, maybe many
dice. If more than one die is used then the score is the total of
all dice rolled. It doesnt matter what kind of dice you have,
4,6,8,12,20, 100 or a million sided, as long as you have a
number of the exact same kind. The mechanics of the game
should be able to handle any size, it all depends on how high of
a number you want to get. In these rules dice are referred to as
d+a number, the number being the number of sides on the die.
A d10 has 10 sides. Most adventures will need a Game
Master(GM), someone to run the adventure, one or more
players playing as characters in the game, paper, and pencils.
Creating Characters:
Each character in QADD has 5 main attributes that
they must divide 7 points between. No attribute
can have a value lower than 1 or more than 3
to start out with. The number in each
attribute is equal to how many dice they will
have to roll is certain situations(will be
explained later). The 4 attributes are:
Build: The total of your physical self. How
tough and resilient you are.
Brains: How smart, good at noticing things,
and how good at figuring this out you are.
Deftness: How well you do things.
Speed: How quickly or slowly you do things.
Luck: Some of us are lucky and some of us arent, but it
may affect some outcomes.

QADD is an experiment to
create a very rules lite rpg that
fits on one sheet of
paper(front & back). Please
send all comments, and
constructive critisism to :

Character Races: Players can be one of 4 races: Humans use

their attributes as is. Elves get a +1 on Speed rolls and missile
attacks, but -1 on Build rolls. Dwarves get + 1 on Build rolls
and axe attacks, but - 1 or Speed rolls. Hobbits get +1 on
Deftness and Luck rolls, but -1 on speed.
Experience and Advancement:
Experience: Your character gains Experience Points(EP) every
time they do something significant during the game. Every
time you do battle you get EP equal to the BS score times 10 of
every opponent you defeat. Defeating an orc with a BS of 2
would get you 20 EP. If a saving roll is made you get 10 times
the level of difficulty(A level 2 saving roll would get you 20
EP) if the roll is successful. If you fail the roll you get 10 times
half the level rounded down(failing a level 4 saving roll
would get you 20 points).
Levels: All characters start at level 1. To advance
to the next level, a character must have
accumulated 100 EP time their current level. A
2nd level character who wants to get to 3rd
needs 200 EP to do it.
Advancement: Every time a character goes up a
level, they get an equal number of points as the
level they achieved. They can use these points to
add to any attributes they want. If a point is
added to your Battle Score it is considered a
modifier to combat rolls. You have a BS of 2 and
after leveling up you decide to spend a point on your BS,
so now you have a BS of 2+1(2 dice +1 to the total). If no
points are spent on Build, then add the new level to your HP.
Say you have 8HP and were raised to level 2 but spent the
points on Brains and Luck, so your new HP would be 10.

There are two additional attributes that are are generated by

some of the above:
Battle Score(or BS ha!) which is generated by adding your
Brains, Deftness, Speed, and Luck and dividing by 4. If the

Extra Large Weapons are anything two handed and +4.
Combat: Basic combat is resolved by both sides rolling the

two rolls is the damage to the loser and subtracted from their

d6 base so both sides roll 2d6. The player rolls an 8 and the
orc rolls a 3. The orc takes 5 points of damage.

Small(throwing starts, thrown daggers/hatchets) are +1.
