3D modeler Miguel Zavala spent more than a year creating 300 digital models of Dungeons and Dragons heroes and monsters and put them on Shapeways free for the downloading. If you have a 3d Printer, you want to check these out before a cease-and-desist letter is in the mail from Wizards.
Microlite ’81 now is out in a “complete” Beta edition. The author writes:
The public beta of Microlite81 Complete is now available for download and comment. Microlite81 Complete is intended to be standard Microlite81 with more complete descriptions of spells, monsters, and magic items and a few extras like an example of play and instructions for GMs which will hopefully make the game more friendly to players with less experience with old school gaming. Microlite81 Complete allows the GM to select which version of the “core game rules” to use (the standard B/X-like rules fromMicrolite81 or the B/X-like rules with the author’s house rules from the early 1980s added as in Microlite81 Extended).
Eureka Miniatures offers a one-page set of rules for playing wild west shootouts with its teddy bear cowboy figures.
Dyson Logos offers Geodesic Gnomes, a free RPG:
Geodesic Gnomes is a full RPG, with background and setting, character creation and advancement rules, character sheet and even a sample adventure. In the cities of the future, people who find themselves with no place within society because of unemployment, criminal behaviour, or just mental illness find themselves pushed out of the domes that protect them from the hazards of the world around them. And since no one wants to live outside the domes, they move into the one place left for them – into the superstructure of the dome itself.
The game is a cyberpunk-styled RPG where the players take on the roles of the gnomes – the descendents in culture if not genetics of those people who moved into the superstructure of the domes. This is a world that is entirely “off the grid”. They have to scavenge for everything from food to water and in some domes even for air.
