Free Game Rules

A central repository for all of my various games rules and such posted so far.

Note: Many of these I haven’t posted about yet and so have no link to the rules, so please contact me at winslows010@gmail.com if you’re interested in learning more about them.

Role-Playing Games

Precedence, an RPG in which you start your character with nothing more than a name on a blank sheet of paper and build who they are as the game progresses.

Heroes of the Eight Kingdoms, an RPG set in the Kings of War universe of Mantica. This is a heavy revamp from the current HotEK rules, and Rogue Agents still needs to be updated to this format.

The Burning Ice, a playset for the RPG Fiasco. It’s based heavily upon the land of Westeros and A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones setting, and you can find a recount of the playthrough here.

Pirates of Orb, an RPG set in a world of airships and privateers. Player’s character sheets are actually starmaps, which grow and evolve as they play to both illustrate their past and future as well as help track abilities and damage in the game

Curse of the Djinn, a mini-RPG heavily focused on the idea of “What if everyone could use [D&D] Wishes?” Players attempt to use their djinn and their wishes to get them out of tight spots and solve problems, but wither greater and greater consequences the more they rely on them.

Wargames

The Star-Struck City, a skirmish campaign game inspired by Mordheim and using the Kings of War 2nd Edition rules for the underlying mechanics.

Orion’s Gate, OPR Edition, a space combat wargame slimmed down into a sleek, sexy capital-ship wrecking machine. Still fully compatible with the fully customizable ships.

Terafie, v0.3 (Outdated), a skirmish wargame set in a frozen apocalyptic wasteland. This version has since become outdated with the work on the One-Page rules version.

Focal Length v1.0, a wargame designed to scale smoothly from small ten-model skirmishes up to battling capital ships in orbit.

Orion’s Gate (Outdated: See above OPR edition), a space combat wargame using fully customizable ships. This version has since become outdated with the work on the One-Page rules version.

Erinhammer, a wargame designed specifically to meet what my wife would like to see/play in a wargame (A genre she normally doesn’t like playing)

My numerous Kings of War special rules, army lists, and complete system overhauls.

My numerous Warpath special rules, army lists, and complete system overhauls.

Board Games

Tears of Betrayal, a Resistance-style game of bluffing with a heavy focus on Prisoner’s Dilemma style player interactions

Orbit, a strategic 4X space game which sees players gradually explore, build and develop the system they play in, resulting in a permanently unique solar system for every game set.

Primogeniture, a simple pocket card game featuring players influencing the royal succession to try and get their dynasties in line for the throne

RUIN, a card game that sees players gradually change and permanently alter their card deck over successive plays until the end up with a unique deck all their own.

Seven Sisters, a card game where players attempt to explore and gather resources from a set of solar systems that are gradually collapsing into their respective suns

The Last Hours of Ebene, a worker-placement game where players take the roles of Curators attempting to catalog and document the final dying moments of a fantasy world.

One-Page Rules

Orion’s Gate, OPR Edition, a space combat wargame slimmed down into a sleek, sexy capital-ship wrecking machine. Still fully compatible with the fully customizable ships.  Hoping to eventually come with papercraft models since 3D printers are still uncommon.

True Lead, a Wild West skirmish game that’s fast and deadly.

Terra Five (Formerly Terafie), which isn’t slated to be an official One Page release but has been converted to that format with OnePageAnon to help work on game flow.
