Legend says that long ago, so long that no one know was living then, terrible wars swept the civilized world, leaving vast wastelands where no man can live.
Before the wars began, man was ruler of the earth. But one result of the terrible wars was that creatures rose from the ashes of the unknown. The genes of the earth’s animals and plants were altered, until strange, new creatures arose – creatures of the awesome power and fierceness and often great intelligence.
You have lived all your years among such creatures and among the strange artifacts – inexplicable, often dangerous- of the Ancients who created this now devastated civilization whose ruins you live among the world of Mutants & Machine-guns!
In this game you are one of them. You can become a pure human, a human mutant or an evolved animal. Task resolution is 2d6 plus one of the 4 stats against TN and depend on character type you may pick 1 or more mutation.
You have this really cool cyberpunk scenario and want to run it, but you don’t want to bother with too many rules and thick rule books? Then this game could be of use to you. [digital_shades] is a small, fast paced role playing game for the cyberpunk genre. It allows you to run and play all kinds of (post)cyberpunk adventures with focus on your character, the role playing and the scenario. No need for dice roll orgies, many pages full of complex rules and time consuming character creations. But don’t worry, the toys are still in here.
Two-Page Space is a complete d20 sci-fi game, including spaceship rules, that can be printed on the front and back of one piece of paper. There is no implied setting except that the PCs fly around in their spaceship and have adventures.
The rules are creative commons.
Pirates!, a free tabletop rpg inspired by Polanski’s eponym movie. It’s a funny and lighthearted game that runs almost on its own, the game master doesn’t have a lot to do while the players perform all sort of foolishness, smiling from ear to ear.
