Mini Six Free RPG

Mini Six is a minimalist free RPG based on the old West End d6 system. The authors write:

Mini Six is a fast and flexible rules system that encourages cinematic play. It’s based on a popular multi-genre role playing game that was created in the 1980’s.

All the rules you need for fast play are included on the first page. The following six densely packed pages present options and advanced rules such as character perks and complications, vehicles, magic, and stock characters.

About Mini Six:

Mini Six is a pen and paper roleplaying game. We assume that if you’ve come here, you’ve played one of those before.

Mechanically, it is a clone of well-known system. We’d love to use the name of that system, but because we don’t own the trademark or have permission to use it, we can’t. The system was first used in a popular science fiction role playing game released in the 1980’s. That system has been made open for use by it’s owner, West End Games, but the standard trademark license (STL) to refer to that system has not been released.

It’s not exactly the same as the original system, however. Mini Six is a smaller, leaner game than the original. In addition, a few tweaks have been made here and there to streamline play.

Mini Six is just the rules. No setting is included, but we intend to release some of our own. It can be used to play just about any genre of game. A few examples of fantasy, science fiction, and modern game elements are included.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer RPG

A lite version of The Buffy The Vampire Slayer RPG rules are available at the BBC, of all places.

Pokethulhu Role Playing Game

A few years ago, I bought a box of Pokethulhu miniatures — little figures that look like Pokemons crossed with Cthulhuian Horrors. I had no idea that there also was a role playing game to go with it. And it’s free! Pokethulhu RPG.

Apathy: The Calling RPG

Apathy: The Calling is a free roleplaying game of Cthulhuian horror. The author writes:

Welcome to Apathy:The Calling a Role Playing Game. In this game you play regular folk dealing with the mythos in the only way they can in the modern age, with apathy. As one of the select few for unknown reasons you can hear Dread Cthulhu as he dreams, calling you to commit unspeakable acts. Fortunately you�ve long been accustomed to ignoring inconvenient realities. You fight back with the inertia and apathy, that has defined you as a generation of slackers, miscreants, good for nothings, baby busters and losers.

Apathy, the Role Playing game is a game about the lost generation, everyday life and cthulhu.
