Since its release in , HackMaster has evolved into a full-fledged role-playing game, spawning over forty add-ons, supplements and game aids. The Hacklopedia of Beasts, the Hackmaster version of the Monster Manual, was next released as eight separate volumes.
The title is a nod to the Dungeons and Dragons Basic Set, although HackMaster Basic was re-written so as to not contain any copyrighted material from Wizard of the Coast. Also provided are a pantheon of gods and attendant rituals and spells for the cleric class to choose from. Players plan their actions second-by-second, with little or no down time between actions. Player characters in combat actively defend as well as attack and various combat maneuvers are offered to create a more realistic feel to the hostile encounter.
The magic system has been overhauled to use spell points rather than a fixed number of spells. Clerics are no longer a single class, but are specific to the various deities within the pantheon.
Setting[ edit ] In 4th edition, the official setting of Hackmaster was Garweeze Wurld, a giant continent on the planet Aldrazar based on the notes of Jolly Blackburn. Garweeze Wurld is about eight thousand miles across, circling much of the northern hemisphere of its planet. The continent is mapped based on forty-eight "sectors", each one thousand miles across. The continent reaches from the tropical band of Aldrazar to its Arctic Circle. Developers for Kenzerco have stated on their forums that the world will not be significantly altered for HM 5th.
