Dwarf Fortress is a free video game with two primary modes: Fortress mode, in which the player takes control of a group of dwarves and attempts to construct a successful and wealthy subterranean fortress in a mountain, and Adventurer mode, which places the player in the shoes of an adventurer as they wander the world and do battle with various creatures.

The game is implemented in text-graphics, and is donationware, so you can download and play for free, while the developers ask for donations to continue their work.

Space Age Sorcery Spells For Lovecraftian and Eldrich Gaming

Free RPGs

Space Age Sorcery is a free supplement of spells for Lovecraftian and Eldrich gaming. The authors write:

If you’re looking for some wicked-twisted spells that a cyborg sorcerer from a shoggoth-haunted nuclear wasteland might have on-hand or you want to give the next bunch of foul cultists something with a little more oomph than a few magic missile spells, we’ve got you covered.

Here is a collection of over 100 strange new spells that combine magic and technology in bizarre, unsettling and often horrific ways best suited to Lovecraftian Space Opera, Eldritch Cyberpunk, Post-Apocalyptic Sword & Planet campaigns, settings or games.

Want to build a memorable villain or NPC spell-caster? Just switch the spells of a typical Magic User, Cleric or Lich with some of the more blasphemous or insidious spells contained in this book.

But beware; these aren’t the usual run of the mill spells you might be used to. Many of these spells carry a terrible cost. Others are gonzo-batshit terrifying, and a few are so gross that we all know that someone is going to insist on having their character attempt to cast one of them just to see what happens. Not all of these spells are appropriate for every world, setting or campaign. Some of these spells have really drastic consequences, others run the risk of exposing the caster to Dread Powers only fools or those suffering from insanity would ever consider casting (making them ideal for rivals, opponents and hirelings). It’s up to you whether any of these spells are available to player characters or only to NPCs, or not at all. It’s your world, your game and your decision.

Warband Science Fantasy Role Playing

Free RPGs

Warband is a free RPG with a science fantasy, science fiction flavor. In truth, it could very well be the Warhammer 40K RPG. The author writes:

This game is my homage to the ‘grim, dark future’. A game of spikey power armor wearing, bolt-gun shooting, chain-sword waving chaos worshippers. Characters struggle to survive in the warp of space, as low-level members of a Chaos Lord’s warband, they strive to make a name for themselves and eventually captain a ship of their own.

Basic Fantasy Free RPG, Modules and Supplements

Free RPGs

Basic Fantasy is a free RPG system, complete with dozens of modules and supplements. The author writes:

The Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game is a rules-light game system based on the d20 SRD v3.5, but heavily rewritten with inspiration from early role-playing game systems. It is intended for those who are fans of “oldschool” game mechanics. Basic Fantasy RPG is simple enough for children in perhaps second or third grade to play, yet still has enough depth for adults as well.

This is a major work.

About the Miniature Wargaming Hobby

Miniature Wargaming is part of the "adventure games" hobby, which includes r ole p laying and board games. Wargamers recreate battles on the tabletop with toy soldiers, like a more complicated game of chess. Models range in height from 6mm to 28mm tall, with 15mm and 25mm being the most popular. There also is a growing interest in toy soldiers and military models, such as the 1/32 and 1/35 scale plastic soldiers from Conte, and Marx.

The most popular miniature wargames are fantasy and science fiction based, such as Warhammer, Warhammer 40K, Warmachine and The Lord of the Rings. World War II games such as Flames of War and Axis and Allies are new favorites. Other favorite historical periods include Napoleonics, the American Civil War, and ancients, such as Romans or Greeks. Other gamers enjoy miniature naval wargames, recreating battles like Trafalgar, Jutland and the Coral Sea.

Hobbyists research historical periods and paint their tiny soldiers in accurate uniforms. Others develop "historically realistic" rules sets or build scale battlefield terrain using model railroad techniques.

For pictures, visit the gallery.

Some of the bigger hobby companies are Games Workshop, which produces Warhammer, Wargames Foundry and Old Glory Miniatures. Wizards of the Coast produces several lines of pre-painted miniatures games, such as the Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons miniatures games, and a historical game with pre-painted miniatures: The new Axis and Allies game. Wizkids produces a fantasy collectable miniatures game, such as the Mage Knight and Heroclick fantasy games, the science fiction games MechWarrior and Rocketmen, as well as the quasi-historical Pirates of the Spanish Main.
