This Year's Registered Games

This page will be updated once a week (usually on the weekend) with the latest registered games submitted that week.

In order of submission:

Mutant Future
Daniel Proctor and Ryan Denison

The sinister and sadistic bleating of spidergoats echoes in the night, a complementary chorus to the rustling of an unfortunate victim caught in their webs. In deep, dank caves to the north, corrupted humans take communion with an unspeakably evil abomination they worship as a god. Shrill cries from the fields can only mean the vomit flies are back, molesting your livestock.

In short, just another day in the Mutant Future!

Mutant Future is a post-apocalyptic science fantasy RPG, in the same flavor of similar genre games from the late 70s and early 80s.

From the back cover:

Enter a post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland filled with mutants, ruins, and radiation! You can take the role of an android, mutant human, mutant animal, pure human, and even a mutant plant! Seek wealth and ancient technological artifacts. Enter vast underground complexes, and avoid killer robots!

clash bowley

In Harm's Way: Aces And Angels is a roleplaying game about being a fighter pilot during World War II.

  • Directed hots: You can take hits in your pilot armor, recieving damage yourself, in your tanks, losing fuel, or on your plane's frame, damaging your craft's ability to maneuver - or you can allocate it to your plane's general damage.

A Flower for Mara
Seth Ben-Ezra

She died that night. She was the light of my days, the glory of my existence. Cut down like a flower in the prime of her life. Now, I stand at her grave. They're lowering her in. It wasn't supposed to be like this. A Flower for Mara is an improvisational play about death, loss, grief, and hope. In it, the cast members portray the immediate family of Mara, a woman who has died unexpectedly, during the first year after her death. We will see them deal with their loss - will they be able to lay aside their grief and continue on with their lives, or will they be trapped by their sorrow, unable to move forward?

Sweet Agatha
Kevin Allen Jr.

One morning Agatha was gone –vanished without a trace– leaving everything behind, her apartment reduced to a collection of objects from a life interrupted. It falls on you to find her, but to do so you will have to make some hard choices.

Sweet Agatha is a bridge between the worlds of traditional fiction and cooperative storytelling. An engrossing mystery presented in a collection artifacts including a poster and a gorgeous 30+ page full color journal.

These items tell the story of Agatha’s sudden disappearance, casting you, the reader, as the sole person looking for answers. Exploring the complex, stylized, and often cryptic journal, you will become an active and integral part of the story. Play begins as soon as you start reading. Eventually you will share the experience with a friend, and together you will complete the story of Sweet Agatha through simple, driven, collaborative storytelling.

Sweet Agatha is a reading experience unlike any other. It captures the excitement of a good book or film AND allows the reader and his or her friends to actively participate in the story. This isn’t a hokey “chose your own adventure.” This isn’t another mystery novel. Sweet Agatha is a uniquely designed artifact that readers participate in. The act of reading and manipulating the pages changes the outcome of the story. You are in control of Agatha’s destiny. You will decide how it all ends. Not quite a game and not quite a novel, Sweet Agatha is a unique product pushing the boundaries of both mediums.

Annalise Eternal Tears PDF Edition
Nathan Paoletta

A dark-haired woman, staring out of stained glass, watching faces form in the rain. An ancient evil, unearthed for the first time since antiquity, re-learning the limits of its power. A hero, noble and pious, unable to accept the responsibility that is his birthright. A child, shedding a single tear while waiting for her mother to return. Two lovers, intertwined in a bower, each speckled with red, red blood.

The Vampire is out there. You are it's enemies, its lovers and its servants. How will you confront the darkness awaiting you?

Annalise is a game about making Vampire stories. Each player takes on the role of a protagonist in the story you are about to create together, with the understanding that these characters are the victims, hunters and tools of the Vampire. The best example is that you are playing the story of Dracula with one person in the role of Mina Harker, one as Van Helsing, one as Renfield. The Vampire in your game, like Dracula, is what drives the plot, but it is not a protagonist. Every game of Annalise involves the characters discovering the influence of the Vampire in their lives, and builds up to a confrontation with the creature, for good or ill.

This is a game about pain, hunger and redemption. Pain, because the Vampire is only attracted to the vulnerable, those people who have experienced pain, suffering or loss in their lives. Hunger, because the Vampire hungers for that pain. Redemption, because there is always the possibility of redeeming your actions and desires - if you wish it.

Annalise is a game for two to four players, and can take a variable amount of time to play. A short, intense game can be played in four hours. A long, languid, slow-burning game can take up to 20 hours, broken into 3 or 4 hour sessions. The game is suited for people of all gaming backgrounds.

Modern20
Charles Rice

Welcome to Modern20 -- RPGObjects' new modern RPG of action and adventure. As a company, RPGObjects has always been a strong supporter of modern and science-fiction gaming. It's in our blood. So you might be asking, why a new modern system? The truth is there are a lot of things that the modern core rules do very well. But other things could be improved.

As a game master who has run modern d20 since before the core rules were released (we were given a pre-release copy of the rules) and as a long-time modern gamer before that in point-based systems both generic and heroic, I wanted to draw on that experience to create a faster-playing, smoother, more action-packed modern experience. At the same time, I wanted to streamline skills and add depth to character creation, making it a richer experience, while hopefully not a longer experience.

The result, after years of thought, hundreds of game sessions, and a lot of discussion is the book you're holding now. We hope you'll agree with us when we say it's modern to the 20th power.

Hot War
Malcolm Craig

London. Winter. 1963.

It is a year since the Cold War went hot.

And this was not just a nuclear war. Far more sinister, darker weapons were deployed from the shadows.

Survival and re-building are all that matter now. But human nature and tragic circumstances mean that everyone has their own ambitions.

...a Government desperate to hold on to what remains of the country.

...military forces who wish to expand their power and influence.

...frightened and brutalised refugees who simply want a place to call home.

Into this maelstrom steps the Special Situations Group, a motley band of men and women tasked with the jobs too dirty or dangerous for anyone else.

This is Hot War: a game of friends, enemies, secrets and consequences in the aftermath.

This alternative history/horror game for three or more participants has players dealing with life a year after the apocalypse. You'll confront hidden agendas, sinister factional machinations and see the changes in relations with friends and enemies.

Hot War allows both short term and campaign play, with a system that allows the group to work out exactly the kind of game they want to play amongst the wreckage of 1960s London.

Download the rules, read them, grab some friends, create characters, use the scenario generator. You'll be playing a Gates & Gorgons game in less time you need to say "4th edition" (or 2 hours according to playtests).

Exquisite Replicas
Lee Foster, Monica Valentinelli, John R. Phythyon Jr., Jr., Werner Hager, Todd Cash

An alien reality is infiltrating our world, replacing it piece by piece. Horrific creatures slink about unseen, stealing indiscriminately and leaving exact replicas in their wake. These simulacra are indistinguishable from the originals, and there’s no telling what will be the next target. It might be the fire hydrant down the street, the local post office, or an aged Merlot in a private wine cellar. A person can also be replicated and replaced… your neighbors, your friends, your family—anyone can be next. Even you.

There are a few men and women who can see the invaders creeping about our world. They wage a quiet war against the enemy while those who they struggle to protect recognize nothing of their sacrifice. They are the Anonymous, tragic heroes who risk more than just their lives in the struggle against the enemy; they risk their humanity.

Exquisite Replicas is a role-playing game of paranoia and horror where intolerable choices collide with the fragile hope of what it means to be human. The war must be won, but it is up to the players to decide at what cost.

Sufficiently Advanced
Colin Fredericks

We left Earth behind, though we will never forget it.

With aid from the future itself we stepped into new worlds across the universe. We made new homes here, and new ways of life, each of us walking our own path. We strove for peace and knowledge, for love and truth. We clung to tradition and built our futures from it. Many of us fell along the way. Now we are together again, every possible transformation of humanity. We are by turns fascinated, horrified, and compelled by each other. Whether there will be a melding of ideas or a violent shattering remains to be seen.

Once we reached for the stars. Now we have them. What we do with them is up to us.

Sufficiently Advanced is a tabletop roleplaying game set in the distant future. This site is a repository of information for the game, as well as a place for its fans to gather and talk.

Each player in Sufficiently Advanced is an agent of the Patent Office, an intergovernmental organization that polices and enforces intellectual property law across the universe. It is an open secret that the Patent Office is run by the Transcendental AIs, whose very beings are spread across time itself. The Transcendentals desire the survival of humanity - as much of it as possible - into the distant future, in order to ease their loneliness. Towards this end, they have hired you, so that you might save humanity.
