Judge Dredd for Traveller: A custom fillable character sheet

I'm a fan of the Mongoose adaption of Judge Dredd, the long-running British sci-fi comic. They put out two versions, a D20 version, and the version I prefer - the Traveller version. Mongoose no longer has the license to Judge Dredd, but paper copies of the book can still be found. I don't believe there's … Continue reading Judge Dredd for Traveller: A custom fillable character sheet

Hobo Slang: A resource for Knights of the Road and other 1920s RPGs

Just ran my first session of Knights of the Road, the fun RPG about hobo paladins battling monsters in a fantasy version of 1920s America. I'll probably write up the adventure eventually and release it, along with some pregens. When preparing for the game, I found these glossaries of hobo slang a useful resource: http://hobonickels.org/alpert04.htmContinue reading Hobo Slang: A resource for Knights of the Road and other 1920s RPGs

WIP: Character Sheet for the Traveller version of the Judge Dredd RPG

The RPG company Mongoose had the license for the Judge Dredd comic for a few years, and released both D20 and Traveller versions. I'm sort of fond of the Traveller version. I even made a fillable version of their character sheet. I wasn't entirely happy with their version, so I decided to try making my … Continue reading WIP: Character Sheet for the Traveller version of the Judge Dredd RPG

Strontium Dog: Pre-generated characters for Traveller

I recently ran a one shot of Strontium Dog, the sci-fi bounty hunter game from Mongoose Games. It's based on the old 2000AD comic series. It's the older version that uses the Traveller ruleset, not the current WOIN version. For the game, I made five pre-generated characters. They're slightly modified versions of the ones in … Continue reading Strontium Dog: Pre-generated characters for Traveller

Fillable version of the Beyond the Mountains of Madness character sheet for Call of Cthulhu

Chaosium recently re-released Beyond the Mountains of Madness, their adventure for the 6th edition of Call of Cthulhu. They also released a player handout and character sheet pack over on their itch site. (I just learned today that Chaosium has a itch.io site). It has a custom 6th Edition character sheet specifically for use with … Continue reading Fillable version of the Beyond the Mountains of Madness character sheet for Call of Cthulhu

Knights of the Road: 1920s Hobos battling monsters – review and custom character sheet

I recently received my Kickstarter copy of Knights of the Road, the OSR fantasy RPG from Bordercholly. It's a hack of the Into the Odd / Bastionland system. I haven't run it yet, but it's a cleanly written, fun little system. It's set in the Western States - a thinly disguised fantasy version of the … Continue reading Knights of the Road: 1920s Hobos battling monsters – review and custom character sheet

Rider: A character sheet for a Western RPG

Rider is a Old West RPG that uses the Cepheus Engine rules (basically open-source Traveller). It comes with a character sheet, but I wanted something a little more printer-friendly, so I've made a custom version. It's two pages long. It will automatically calculate the modifier values and wound tracks. I've added this to my ever-growing … Continue reading Rider: A character sheet for a Western RPG

B/X Mars: A character sheet for an OSR Mars science fantasy RPG

I've always been a big fan of Barsoom/Dying Mars/Science Fantasy set RPGs. I've been maintaining a list of Mars games in this genre. One of my current favorites is BX Mars by Michael Gibbons. It's set on a dying Mars called Zerzura. It has a fun pulp science fantasy tone. It's got dead cities, Red … Continue reading B/X Mars: A character sheet for an OSR Mars science fantasy RPG
