The Dick Tracy RPG brings the classic comic book detective to life. When I was a kid, my dentist had a couple of books with Chester Gould’s complete Dick Tracy strips, and I used to look forward to going to the dentist twice a year so I could read them.
In this RPG system you create characters eight attributes, skills and advantages / disadvantages. Action is resolved with a 2d6+attribute+skill versus difficulty system. Tasks are rated according to a five point difficulty level. The system also has stats for characters such as BB Eyes, Breathless Mahoney, Flattop, and of course, Dick Tracy.
I’ve often thought that these wonderful characters would make great miniatures.
Comic Book Plus has a collection of free pulp horror comics and stories.

Void Trek 3007 A.D. is the free downloadable space opera roleplaying game. Void Trek is for those who like two things, old fashioned SF and simple, 1980s style roleplaying rules. The entire rulebook is 11 pages long (INCLUDING the errata sheet), and it is set up to get you playing within an hour (no joke).
So, if names like Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers and Rocky Jones stir your heart, if the idea of saving swooning green skinned (but hot…) space princesses from bemuscled villains with scales and eye tentacles is what you are all about, please download the rules from the files section.
