Free System Friday: Vox Draconis

Free RPGs! Come and get your red hot Free RPGs! Why hello sir, can I interest you in a bit of Sci-Fi shenanigans? No? How about  an RPG about running a Japanese Bathhouse for Unicorns? Not your cup of tea, eh? Well what about a Rock-Paper-Scissors based game all about Congressional Chefs? Wait! Don’t go just yet, I have it I have just the thing you’re looking for! You want something established, yes? Something that’s been around for at least a decade. And how about a rich fantasy world yes? With dragons? Now what if I told you there were also dinosaurs? Ah ha! I see I have sparked your interest. Very well sir, let me tell you more about Vox Draconis:

Vox Draconis, the game of high adventure in a somewhat confused world of dinosaurs, dragons, monsters, and men. The Basic Rules, this book, contains the basic mechanics for running and playing a game of adventure in the Known Planes. You only need some six-sided dice, a pencil, paper, and this rulebook to begin your adventures. This game is a role-playing game, in which each player creates a character and then, under the supervision of the games master, or referee, they act them out.

Did I mention it’s Free? Well then don’t let me waste any more of your time. Grab some players, grab some dice, get the rules, and play Vox Draconis today!

Free System Friday, Red Ash World Engine

It’s Free System Friday! Tired of your current RPG system? Try a new one for free, why not? This week’s offering is the Red Ash World Engine by Chris Jokinen.

Red Ash is a generic rules set for an RPG(Role Playing Game) and strategy game(in the future) that I have been working on for some time. My goals for this system is to design a complete rules set the can be used in any genre (but for now will focus on a fantasy setting). It is designed to be open, expandable, flexible and is still a work in progress.

What makes Red Ash different from other game systems is it is made from the ground up with a way to create custom races, creatures and classes. Tired of the same old Human, Elf, Dwarf selection of playable races? Make your own!

Sounds like fun! So take a gander at the rules, grab some friends, and try Red Ash today!

Free System Friday: Risus The Anything RPG

It’s Free System Friday! Feel like playing something new? Why not try something free while you’re at it! This week’s offering is Risus The Anything RPG by S. John Ross.


Risus is a complete Role Playing Game (RPG) designed to provide an “RPG Lite” for those nights when the brain is too tired for exacting detail. Risus is especially valuable to GMs assembling a quick convention game, or any late-night beer-and-pretzels outing. While it is essentially a Universal Comedy System, it works just as well for serious play (if you insist!). Best of all, a Risus character takes about 20 seconds to create

In my opinion stick figures are awesome, and stick figures with ray guns are only more so. Grab the rules, grab some friends, and play today! Don’t forget to drop S. John Ross a note of thanks, a critique, or a word of encouragement!

Free System Friday – Adventure Forge

It’s Free System Friday! Tired of your current RPG system? Try a new one for free! Today’s offering is Adventure Forge by Game Designer Stephen Gordon.

Adventure Forge is set in Europe a century after Rome fell to Germanic invaders. Roman tyranny is
dead, but so too is civilization. Much of what was known before is rotting away in musty books.
Treasures lie dormant in forgotten ruins. There is no magic, but the idea of magic has overtaken the
world as superstition has spread.

This setting is different in one major way from historical Europe. Small bands of Neanderthals have
survived in remote places. They stay away from large groups. Their appearance is rare enough that
people from larger towns are mostly unaware of their existence. The people who do know of them call
them “brutes.” Occasionally they attack remote villages for food and weapons. They are powerful
enemies individually, but they don’t fight in a coordinated fashion like other humans.

This is low fantasy RPG done right. Grab the rules, grab some friends, and play today!
