All-Stars: A Game of Low-Budget Superheroes
Steve Johnson

Paradigm City is known for its heroes, the powerful, colorfully-clad men and women who always swoop in and save the day. You're not one of those people. Sure, you've got a power (or at least a schtick), but it isn't particularly awe-inspiring, or even all that useful. You don't have a fancy crime-mobile, an ultra-modern headquarters, or a high-priced publicist like the big boys. But you've got heart, and sometimes that's all you really need.

All-Stars is a game of low budget superheroics designed for use with the QAGS Second Edition rules. It includes an overview of Paradigm City, including history, places of interest, and important people; rules for character creation, and for super powers; a guide to creating your super team; GMing advice; sample characters (The Human Spork! Plushy Master! Singing Swordsman!); super-hero naming tables; adventure ideas; and more!

Bacchanalia
Paul Czege, Michele Gelli

Bacchanalia is a narrative game for 3-6 people. Following the rules, each player creates a fictional character: a person accused (justly or not) of a crime against the empire and on the run with her lover. The game starts when the protagonists find themselves passing through Bertinoro, a settlement on the hills of Romagna by the Via Aemilia and close to the Ravenna port.

Unfortunately for them, in that torrid summer, Bacchus and his followers came down to this village surrounded by vineyards. Attracted by the excesses brought forth by intoxication, other gods manifest themselves: cruel Pluto, severe Minerva and the sensuous Venus will play with the destiny of mortals with all the thoughtlessness only gods can have. In the chaos of the bacchanal, will the fugitives be able to reunite with their beloved and get to safety? Or will they meet a harsher end? Will they be caught by their accuser? Or will they be lost forever in the rapture of the bacchanal?

To learn the answer, you only have to play a complete game.

RavenDeath
Iacopo Frigerio

A indie role playing game to create stories about Vendetta. There are no limits or time setting or story in this game, but only one constant, the Revenge. Son of the comic strip of the Crow, this game was developed over 3 years to allow you to play any revenge story, from the Greek tragedies to the classic Kill Bill, from The Count of Monte Cristo to Old Boy. The mechanics eliminate the figure of the game master distributing this role to all the role players at the table which, in turn, will have to manage the role of Screenwriter of the Chapter. Taking a cue from the movie Kill Bill, the phase of play is divided into chapters each of which deals with antagonists to exact revenge on. Comparisons between the protagonist and his antagonists, PNG or managed by them, will be addressed through a Confrontation Board. Simply rolling the dice and placing them on the table, will help determine who among the players will have a right and duty to narrate the scene of the narrating themes allowing you to add more hands to the development of the story. The simple explanation of the rules and advice in the manual allows a quick understanding of the mechanics and an easy to learn game mechanism ensuring that the players will be able to self-manage. The game can be easily completed in 3-4 hours, but finds its expression in taking advantage of a game session for each chapter, that a session of play for each player. The recommended number of players is 3 to 6.

21 Guns
Iacopo Frigerio

An indie role playing game that celebrates the Stephen King's Dark Tower Saga. It's a free 2 pages RPG. Easy to play for 4 to 6 players.

Once upon a time a great Kingdom reigned over the world, enlightening and protecting the peoples. The High King, Arthur David was seated on the throne and 100 great Knights attended him with honor. The Knights of the Kingdom sheltered the Hinges of the Universe, mystical forces that Ordered the World, but they made the mistake of substituting the magic of the Hinges with technology... The Order broke up, and now not even the sun shining is sure. But Cydonia, last shred of the past Kingdom, has not given up the resistance yet. The Blessed Virgin legitimately sits on the throne of her fathers and the last 21 Knights still lean on their knees in her presence, laying weapons down with deference. Some of the 21 gather in Fellowship to seek the Quests, hoping to restore the ancient Kingdom.

Victoria
Daniel Hodges

The Victorian era is unlike any before or since. Imperialism and war draw lines across the globe while scientific discovery and remorseless industrialization leaves indelible marks on its people, from the cutthroats in the streets to Queen Victoria herself.

This is the world of Charles Darwin and Charles Babbage, steam power and workhouses, Florence Nightingale and Ada Lovelace, Stanley and Livingstone, Jekyll and Hyde, Holmes and Watson, The Charge of the Light Brigade, Charles Dickens and Jack the Ripper.

THIS IS THE WORLD OF VICTORIA

You are holding a roleplaying game; a game that allows you to create tales of action, intrigue, and the supernatural in which you are the hero.

Victoria asks you to choose sides and take up arms in the battle for the fate of the British Empire, or to forgo the decision and forge your own path, altering the course of history.

Inside you will find:

  • the complete Hazard resolution system
  • quickstart guides
  • fully worked and broken-down examples of every skill in use and combat using actual examples of play
  • a working background for running games in victorian times distilled from countless hours of research. The background covers everything from crime and punishment to the correct clothes to walk down the street in.
  • a rich secret back-story full of hooks detailing the history and machinations of two powerful yet shadowy organizations vying for control of the Empire.
  • a large (optional) chapter containing lots of information for incorporating supernatural elements in your tale and providing plenty of grist for your creative mill.
  • an entire section dedicated to the art of GMing including a step-by-step examination of a process you can follow to create an absorbing tale every time, no matter what system you employ.
  • a sample tale that showcases all these elements. A Victorian Prometheus brings the characters face to face with not only these organizations but with abominations wrought from the brilliant, tortured but completely insane mind of Dr. Cornelius Knox.

Buy Victoria today! As a stand-alone game, source book or GMing resource, you won't be disappointed.

Planets of Peril: The Sword & Planet Role Playing Game
Keith Bruce Vaughn

Long Ago...

You galloped across the dead sea bottoms of Mars,
Flew through the Everest-tall trees of Venus,
Sweated in the Twilight Zone of Mercury
and sought romance on a moon of Jupiter.

Now...

The Moons of Kerogo haunt your waking hours,
Night after endless night you hear their call,
Again, it is time to take up your sword:
Adventure and Romance await you.

In the paleolithic an alien race, the Archon, kidnapped cavemen and took them to the Moons of Kerogo. In these laboratories they were twisted as the Archon tested the genetic plasticity of our race and others. Then the Archon warred with an enemy they could neither defeat nor stop. After the Archon's extinction the humans and other races escaped the laboratories and preserves to spread across the surfaces of the moons.

But the escaped races relied upon the technology of the Archon to build their civilizations. As the devices wore out every generation saw the slow retreat to barbarism and savagery. In the last age an expedition accidently activated a comatose Archon AI. It ordered Living Metal, its robots, to restore the laboratory moons of the Archon. to capture enough specimens of the escaped races and exterminate the rest.

In the genocide some managed to escape and reach temporary refuge. But Living Metal continues to restore the moons. Mankind can only hide for a few more generations before he is again hunted. Many humans are hiding as savages. The civilized ones are in warring city-states.

Mankind needs men of vision. Men who can forge empires where art, science, technology and the tools of war can be created to fight the Living Metal of the Archon. It is a time for heroes...it is your time.

To power this exotic world of adventure the simple, yet elegant, die versus die system was created. Characters are created by using starting points to buy skills at a certain die level (d4-d12.) Challenges, foes and tasks are all represented by a single die too. There are no modifiers. When a conflict comes up the character's die is rolled against the opposing die (say d6 versus d8) and the high number wins. The difference is the points of damage (if applicable or simple failure) to the loser. After that the next round begins.

This die versus die mechanic is used throughout. The game system can be explained to new players in 30 seconds. It helps the game master to assign challenge die to unexpected player actions or questions during the game session. Another effect is to make game preparation quicker so more time can be spent gaming or fleshing out the scenario.

To further help the game master a complete world (Zardoon) is presented. Twelve warring city-states, four human races, four alien races, six Orders of Good, six Cults of Evil, maps, language conventions, advanced alien technology with adventure seeds presented with each of these to help the game master with adventure ideas. Included is a starting adventure.

Planets of Peril is a complete game in one book. Nothing else to buy except a single set of polyhedral dice.

The Bell
Stephanie Pegg, Catherine Pegg

You wake up with your memories fracturing around you. You're going somewhere, and there's something wrong, and you know these people here with you, or maybe you only think you do. All you really know for sure is that you can hear this Bell.

This is a science fiction suspense live roleplaying game inspired by The Fountain (Darren Aronofsky), Five-Twelfths of Heaven (Melissa Scott), Vacuum Flowers (Michael Swanwick) and the works of Cordwainer Smith. The Bell is intended to be an emotionally intense game that pushes moral dilemmas. (It isn't recommended for novice roleplayers.) It can be run for 12 to 20 players with a play duration of two hours.

The premise of The Bell is that the players are the crew and passengers of a space ship called The Soul which is travelling to a planet called Castilia and experiencing technical problems. People are normally put to sleep for the journey, with the crew waking for short periods from time to time to make repairs that the ship cannot handle by itself. In this case, the ship is damaged with problems with critical systems. The players wake as amnesiacs with only partial memories about who they are and why they are there. At several points in the game they will hear a tolling bell indicating that they have to return to their sleeper pods for the next phase of the journey. In these bell interludes they will be able to recover more memories about themselves and other people.

The Bell draws on a trope of science fiction which treats space travel as a spiritual journey. It doesn't make assertions about any particular religion, but it does examine metaphysical themes and ethical issues.

Included:

Twenty character sheets
Guide to running the game and the game setting
Soundtrack
Handouts required for the game

The Play's The Thing
Mark Truman

The Play's The Thing is a storytelling game about actors who want to rewrite the Shakespearean roles they've been given.

You and your friends tell the story of an acting troupe that is scheduled to perform a new play, but has a lot of disagreements about how that play should go. While the Playwright might present you with a classic Shakespearean folio, you'll use your imagination and wit to craft new events and excitement in old stories.

Imagine:

If Ophelia never drowned... and killed Claudius herself.

If Romeo never met Juliet... but fell in love with Mercutio.

If Othello figured out that Iago was to blame... or secretly plotted to kill him first.

In The Play's The Thing, one player takes on the role of the Playwright, the writer and director of the Play, and the rest of you portray Actors (Hams, Leads, Villains, and Ingenues) who are cast in roles. As you work your way through the Acts of the Play, you'll suggest changes that the Playwright has to incorporate into the work, making The Bard's stories even better.

Dark Nova Roleplaying Game
Breandán Ó Ciarraí, Orren Fansler, Martin Fox

Dark Nova is a table-top roleplaying game set in the early 24th century. Mankind has spread out amongst the stars, discovered other races, and come face-to-face with its own nature. Centered around the loose coalition of nation-states known as the Terran Alliance of Nations, humanity still fights, engages in political intrigue, and is just as prone to acts of great brutality and nobility as they are today. They are not, however, alone. The universe of Dark Nova is a dynamic- and often dangerous- place; similar in many ways to the 19th century with its combination of heavily-settled civilized Core Worlds and the dangerous Wild-West-like fringe colonies. Pirates, organized crime syndicates, predatory alien races, and good old fashioned internecine warfare threaten the safety of the galaxy. Countering them are the heroic Templars, the independent Freetraders who ply the dangerous spaceways and take the fight to the pirates, the fierce and honourable Ahruga, and the steadfast stubborn determination of colonists and adventurers of many races to fight back the darkness. The unique rule set and in-depth setting allow the players and the game-master create their own stories, living novels of their own experiences as they let their imaginations run rampant throughout the Dark Nova universe.

STALKER - The SciFi Roleplaying Game
Ville Vuorela

In memoriam: Boris Strugatsky (1933-2012)

In the Zones, the laws of nature have gone insane. Deadly anomalies defy logic and reason. Monsters roam the streets of dead cities and the bones of the fallen crack beneath your feet. No one knows what really happened, nor do they really care. The World wants the Zones closed off, walled in and forgotten. The governments were only too happy to oblige and gave them away to the Institute.

The Institute answers to no one.

The borderlands between our world and the Zones are now lawless frontiers where the Institute wields absolute power. Zone refugees are hunted like animals. Scientists experiment on human captives. Criminal activity of every kind flourishes in the shadow of the border, well and truly beyond the reach of law.

Even in the Zones, there are things that people want. Things that promise the impossible; infinite energy, the cure for all ailments, or the power to rewrite fate. Leaders, businessmen and generals would kill to get their hands on them, or to keep from the hands of others. Which is why you are here. Looter. Criminal. Stalker.

If you come back with swag - it's a miracle

If you come back alive - it's a success

If the patrol bullets miss you - it's luck

And as for anything else - that's fate

Stalker - the SciFi Roleplaying Game is the one and only true "Stalker" roleplaying game, based on the novel Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky but brought to the modern times and modern audiences. The Finnish-language original was released in 2008 to rave reviews. The leading daily newspaper named it as one of the top culture events of the year. Years of insistence by hardcore fans lead to it being translated into English and now here we are.

STALKER RPG is published with the permission and license from Boris Strugatsky, who will also be receiving royalties for every copy sold. This makes it the only official "Stalker" roleplaying game out there and your support to a literary genius is highly appreciated.

STALKER RPG uses an innovative diceless game system called FLOW that emphasizes player participation, role immersion and the use of rules as a catalyst to great roleplaying moments.

Enter The Shadowside
Marco Leon

Life is a resistance to what came before it, and to what comes after. The universe of things is the illusion, as is the sense of our birth as the beginning and death as our end.

At a primal level you know this to be true: the dullness of this world sends your mind wandering, and in dreams you've been given glimpses of elsewhere. You remember what this elsewhere felt like, because that's where you came from. Think back of when you were a child: late at night you'd wake up for nor reason, and your eyes would go to the closet, and the dark. Remember what that felt like, what you thought lurked there. The details don't matter -the details are gone. But the scent stayed with you. Others disregard it. Maybe you tried to, and can't. Know this: you suspected right. The hidden wars do rage all around you; and you suspect right every time you feel their echoes whispering down the back of your neck.

Take the next step. Let Belief be your key, your door and your doorknob. Let it guide you back to the place where you could will anything into existence by simply hoping (or fearing) it was already there. Because it most certainly was. Dreams and nightmares- Cogito Ergo Mundi Est - the Shadowside.

Itras By: A surreal role playing game
Ole Peder Giæver, Martin Bull Gudmundsen

Start a journey away from reality as you perceive it with your everyday senses. The means are elements from surrealism; an art movement from the 20's which tries to portray the life of the subconscious. The method is roleplaying, a game where a group of people together create and partake in a story. The end is to free the thoughts from their usual patterns. The intention is to liberate impulsiveness and creative power, maybe even rendering everyone a slight bit wiser.

Dog Eat Dog
Liam Burke

Dog Eat Dog is a game of colonialism and its consequences. As a group, you work together to describe one of the hundreds of small islands in the Pacific Ocean, defining the customs of the natives and the mores of the outsiders arriving to claim it. One player then assumes the role of the Occupation force, playing their capable military, their quisling government, and whatever jaded tourists and shrewd businessmen are interested in a not quite pacified territory. All the others play individual Natives, each trying in their own ways to come to terms with the new regime. The game begins when the war ends. Through a series of scenes, you play out the inevitably conflicted relationship between the two parties, deciding what the colonizers do to maintain control, which natives assimilate and which run amok, and who ends up owning the island in the end. The game comes in the form of a book, with the full rules, author's notes that explain the design process, and a brief historical overview of colonization in the Pacific.
