Hey - I'm a recent convert to the Black Hack. Just ordered the print version today. I decided to get my kids (age 8 and 6) going in a campaign, so I modified and even distilled a bit more of the Black Hack into its pure essence. I wrote up the full mod for your perusal and comments and feedback. Not sure what I am going to do with it yet.

The Basic Hack is designed for beginners - with a strong GM. No levels. No hit dice. I tried to simplify spells to the bare minimum so they sort of make sense just from their title. I did bring back races, cause my kids dig that. Classes revolve around the one thing they are good at and give advantage just for it. And sort of hacked weapons back in since my son wanted his warrior to have a battle axe. You'll see some text unchanged from the open game content - and others a bit edited for my own clarity.

My hope - to write up our actual play into a solo adventure like the classic red box and pop it in there somehow.
