Quick Start and free RPG rules

Post by greytale » Tue Aug 28, 2007 12:03 am

Since Marksimms requested it, I figured I would share the free and quick play rules that I know of. I would love to see any more that people have.

Caution PDFs the may be slow to load and you need Adobe Reader.


Free quick start rules to commercial games.

I put my two favorites at the top. :)

Legends of the Ancient World (Legends, for short) is a free system that might be worth checking out:
http://www.darkcitygames.com/docs/Legends.pdf (just a 7-page PDF)

It's basically a free version of Steve Jackson Games' Melee/Wizard/The Fantasy Trip.

A number of free adventures, maps, and playing pieces for the game are available here:

Hey, the link given for Basic Fantasy RPG above points to a download which is no longer on the site; I recommend going directly to the main site to download the current edition:

If you want to jump past the intro screen to the downloads page, go here:

Warhammer 40k... the scenario Edge of Darkness includes quick play rules for the Warhammer 40k system.

Not sure how long it will be up as the licensing and publication has just been switched over to Fantasy Flight Games.
