Black Hack?
Have people run or played The Black Hack on rpol? I'm liking the 2e updates, but I'm curious how well it works in pbp format.

Black Hack?
I've always felt that player-facing systems were ideal for PbP given there's no waiting for a GM response--you can even have the players roll the monster/opponent damage if they're hit!

It works very well, and if, like badpenny says, the GM provides details of monster HD, the players can handle nearly everything themselves.

I'm in a game which uses The Petal Hack and have no complaints.

Black Hack?
In reply to atminn (msg # 1):

All the various offshoots of The Black Hack are lean, fast-paced, and work well enough with some only slightly imaginative tweaks to play well here on RPoL.  Can't knock the price in the head, either.

It is a rule-light system, and invites customization/derivative works, as if one were being handed a retro-style old-school game building toolkit.
