HackMaster Basic was released with the presumption that players wanted
to learn the game not the character generation system.
As such, this version includes a selection of ready-to-play characters
to facilitate rapid play.
Lets face it. Learning how to build a character in any system takes
some trial and error. You really have to play the game to know how to
build a Player Character.
If youve played HackMaster and enjoy the game, HackMaster Basic Plus
is the perfect step up. Heres some of the added features:
Full details for advancing up to 10th level
Extra Equipment choices
Expanded Combat Options
12 Special Combat Moves
Crunchier Initiative System
PCs can survive past zero hit points
Rules for Shooting into Melee
For the GameMaster
Expanded Treasure Tables
227 page PDF
Characters in HackMaster Basic and HackMaster Basic Plus are
fully interchageable and can be readily integrated into the grestly
expanded rules system featured in the HackMaster Players Handbook.
