Heroes and Horrors: D&D 5th Edition Meets Labyrinth Lord and OSRIC

Heroes and Horrors is a simple version of DnD 5E that merges old and new.

At the moment, I'm choosing Race as a Class. When making a character, you choose a Background from 5E and when it applies, you have Advantage on your Ability roll. Ability Modifiers would be per 5E (at the moment). Weapon damage would be per Class (so weapon choice would be cosmetic). Saving Throws would mimic 5E's Death Check, roll a d20, equal or exceed a 10 and don't add Ability Modifiers. Max level would be 20 (for now). AC from armor and shields would be per 5E. You add the appropriate Ability Modifier to any Ability or Damage roll. Here is how Two-Weapon Fighting works: if you hit on your melee weapon attack roll AND your d20 roll is Odd, you deal an additional 1d6 damage.
