Challenger RPG -- Free!

Image
When I was on Amazon looking for some books, this book popped up in my side bar as recommended. It was a kindle edition and it was free, so I decided to give it a look, hey its free.

First off on Amazon the author spouts off this:

#1 in Free Roleplaying and Fantasy Kindle Books "January, February, and March 2012"
#14 in Free Fantasy Kindle Books "January 2012"
Top 50 and under in Free Fantasy Kindle Books "From January 2012 Onwards..."
Outranked "Angry Birds" in Games on Kindle at one point.

This is a pen and paper tabletop roleplaying game, not a computer game. If you're looking for one of those, I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere. I highly recommend the dungeon-crawling German rogue-like "Lost Labyrinth" which is free to download and a purely awesome game.

If you're looking for fiction, you're in luck! You will find the completely free comic fantasy novel "The End of The World" at the very back of…

Cortex Rules!

Image
Its been out for a long time, and it dates back as far as the Serenity RPG game, expanding into the Battlestar Galactica RPG and finally its own core rules, known as the Cortex Blue book core rules.
You can read up on the Wiki for more details about the system http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cortex_System#The_Cortex_System
This book is much like the D20 Modern book in a way that there is no real theme to it, its not fantasy, space, or even the world of gangsters. The good news is that you can take this book, or toolkit as I like to call it and make it into any game you want to play that night. Designed by the Margaret Weis productions team, this toolkit was a sure hit.
Some features about the game:
The system is your basic point-buy, skill based system more akin to Vampire than D&D (i.e. no classes). Characters have a series of general attributes (e.g. Strength) and specific skills (e.g. Guns). These are rated by a category of die: d2, d4, d6, d8, d12, d12 +d2 and keeps going.

The new improved Mazes & Perils!

Image
Today I released the new Mazes and Perils, or should I say, new and improved M&P. With more levels, spells and some other adjustments. There is a brand new layout that was done by one of the users at OSRGaming.org forums, named Vile. He has worked on such things in the past, and offered to do it in his free time to make it look nice. I would like to personally thank him for his hard work, and effort, as he to was sick of all the "we can't create, but we sure can bash" people. So its a fully complete, up to level 12, Holmes inspired RPG. Enjoy!
