    This should actually have been included in the FWW RPG Download in my opinion, since it contains equipment and weapon cards needed to play the game if you don’t have access to the two player starter set of the miniatures game.
  • Fallout: Wasteland Warfare – Rules of Play (Download)
    You read the RPG expansion and still have a couple of questions on how some things or if you are now interested in the miniature game, you can check out the rules for free.
  • Fallout: Wasteland Warfare – Getting Acclimated (Download)
    ”Getting Acclimated” is basically a quickstart version of the full FWW rules. It includes some basic scenarios and a phase by phase guide to the core rules.
  • Fallout: Wasteland Warfare – Print & Play: Dice and Ruler Info (Download)
    This PDF is especially helpful if you don’t own the official FWW dice set. While the game uses d20s and d12s these are printed with special symbols. This PDF contains handy conversion tables for your dice rolls and colored rulers for use with miniatures.

RPGSmith

A couple of days ago, David Sumner, co-founder of RPGSmith got in touch with me and told me about his free web application. RPGSmith is – in a nutshell – an interactive character sheet with additional features like item, spell and ability management. The current application is meant for players, but they’ll be launching a Kickstarter later this week to fund an extended version of RPGSmith which will feature a GM campaign management interface.

At the moment, the application supports the following rulesets: D&D 5th Edition, Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorers Edition, Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, Fate Core, Fate Accelerated, and Pathfinder. It is possible to add your own rulesets though.

From what I’ve seen so far RPGSmith could be a pretty nifty tool for players regardless whether they are playing online or offline. There is a bit of a learning curve though, but luckily the site provides users with quite a few tutorial videos.

Having an interactive character sheet definitely comes in handy from time to time, and RPGSmith has support for desktop PCs and mobile devices, which is a plus in my book. You can even customize your character sheets to your hearts content. Will it change the way we play RPGs? I have my doubts, but it’s worth a look nevertheless.

What are your thoughts on RPGSmith? Have you had the chance to try it out? Please share your comment below!

Freebies: Skyfarer–A Sunless Skies RPG

If you are an avid fan of PC gaming, you have probably heard of Sunless Seas and its successor Sunless Skies. Both games have a strong focus on story and exploration. In Sunless Skies you are the captain of a locomotive exploring the skies. And that’s not where the weirdness ends. In Sunless Skies stars are highly intelligent … and dying. The Victorian Empire has built its own Sun and Queen Victoria reigns from the Throne of Hours, which gives her control over time.

The game uses a simple d10-based mechanic and is focused on narrative gaming. If you expect complex rules and tactical combat, Skyfarer is not for you. But if you intend to tell exciting stories in a delightfully weird world, you definitely should check it out.
