Pen, Paper, and Paupers
Oh yes, it’s time for another Free System Friday, I bet you all thought that I’d forgotten. Ha! Cheapskates like me never forget about cool, free games, are you crazy? Today I bring to your attention one of the most unique and innovative games out there and the best part is the whole system is free: Old School Hack!
It’s been a while since the last Free System Friday so I thought I’d toss another one your way this week. Let’s keep it short and sweet shall we? Chances are most of you know a thing or two about Cthulhu mythos and if not then you can definitely get started here.
You might also want to read a short story or two by H.P. Lovecraft himself before diving into the Cthulhu game to help set proper mood and tone, think of it as awesome homework if you will.
The Call of Cthulhu s about to celebrate it’s 30th year as a tabletop RPG, so if you haven’t gotten in on the action yet (like me) now would be a great time to do so! Head on over to the Chaosmium website and pick up the Call of Cthulhu Quick-Start package – a game that can only end in tears, and by tears I mean insanity and/or a horrific demise for the PC’s and perhaps the entire world.
Until next time my fellow curious investigators…if there is a next time.
Free System Friday
This friday we’re highlighting a copy of Quick Start rules for the classic modern fantasy RPG Shadowrun 4th edition. It contains pre-generated characters and all you need to know (players & DM’s alike) for this little intro session that takes place within a convenience store, sounds like a blast! (Literally, there’s shotguns.) T
If you’ve got the time, you can pick it up over at RPGNow, check it out, then head right on back here later and leave us a comment, tell us what you think about it! It’s nice to see freebies like this that have such high production values and it only uses 6 sided dice to boot!
