Someone was telling me today about some sort of house-rules set that limited 3e to just 6 levels.

It sounds interesting, and fool that I am, I wonder if it might be an answer to my old group's dissatisfaction with 3e.

Have any of you heard of this or have an opinion about it?

I've seen it mentioned in various threads, but haven't seen the system itself. Have you looked at Microlite20? That too is a greatly simplified 3e game, but not limited to just lower levels.

Someone was telling me today about some sort of house-rules set that limited 3e to just 6 levels.

There are a number of long threads on it on ENWorld (which is still down or I'd like to one of them). Characters are limited to 6 levels and have a usually have a much smaller selection of feats. After hitting sixth level they get one additional feat every 5000 XP. The system is designed for running low-powered campaigns using almost all the 3e rules and systems, so it might not be the best set of rules for your group's problems.

Greyharp mentioned Microlite20.  It's great -- the best thing to come out of 3e, IMHO. A very rules lite system (main rules are about 2 pages!) based enough on 3e that about 95% of 3e adventures and other materials can be used with it without a lot of work. (Material for other games and older editions will work as well.) It is VERY easy to adapt and modify -- as easy as OD&D, in my opinion.

Here's a link to the first long thread on it at ENWorld:

and to the newer thread:

Here's a link to some discussion on RPGNet:

Greywulf (Microlite20's creator) just had a fund drive to start a Microlite20 web site. The fund drive was successful (in only a couple of days) and the new site will be appearing here: http://microlite20.net. Correction: The start of the site is there now. Greywulf has been busy.

ENWorld is back up.  Here's a link to the current E6 thread. It's apparently the sixth in a series.
