All manner of scifi/fantasy/nerdness: Roleplaying, comic books, .... okay, so mainly just RPGs & comic books. And Dr. Who. And Firefly. And comic books. And role-playing games. And Community. And Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And comic books. And RPGs. And Avengers. And RPGS. And whatever else amuses me today...
I’m more upset by the fact that I can’t convince any of my coworkers to play D&D or Shadowrun during the government shut down than I am actually having to miss work.
Does anyone know an RPG with free printable character sheets and instruction sheets and shit? I just want an RPG I can casually play with my friend, or even with myself (I get lonely sometimes). I hope such a game exists.
There’s actually tons of options!
If you want high-fantasy wizards and warriors types of stuff, Earthdawn has the Misguided Ambitions introduction available for free. It comes complete with a sample adventure and five characters.
If you’re more interested in hard science fiction, Nova Praxis has a pay-what-you-want edition that you can easily get for either free or cheap.
If none of THAT does it for you, you can check out GURPS [Generic Universal RolePlaying System]. They have both the 3rd Edition and 4th Edition Lite versions available for free. While they don’t include a setting or character sheets, they give you all the information and rules you might need to create your own.
Finally, if all those choices aren’t enough for you, or if you just simply must jump on the d&d bandwagon, the 4th Edition’s Quick Start rules (complete with adventure & character sheets), is freely available on Wizards of the Coast’s website.
I hate making ethernet cables, but listening to dubstep/techno while I do it always makes me feel like some sort of Shadowrun decker/hacker.
