Free Stuff Friday: Risus

It’s Friday and it’s time to give you some more free stuff!

This weeks Free Stuff is: Risus
Looking for a quick and easy rules light RPG to play? Look no further than Risus.

On the Risus Website they wrote this stuff up
: Risus is a complete Role Playing Game (RPG) designed to provide an “RPG Lite” for those nights when the brain is too tired for exacting detail. Risus is especially valuable to GMs assembling a quick convention game, or any late-night beer-and-pretzels outing. While it is essentially a Universal Comedy System, it works just as well for serious play (if you insist!). Best of all, a Risus character takes about 20 seconds to create!

So please check out the site and start downloading your copy of Risus. After you finishing your first amazing game of Risus email the guys over at Cumberland Games and thank them for their free stuff!

Bonus Download: For those of you enjoy the Serenity downloads from last week you might be stoked to know that there is a Firefly conversion available for Risus.

Head over to for links to other important sites, rules options, community updates, and other assorted musings.

  2. Risus has a ton of support out there. It's not just for silly superhero one-shots, but can be used for Traveller, Wild West Games, and much more…
