RPG Books on Lulu



I really like ordering RPG books from Lulu.com. Not only I believe their printing and binding is superior than DriveThruRPG, they have discount coupons and free shipping from time to time, which helps those not living in US and Europe a lot easier!

But every time I share coupons for it, someone will ask for recommendations. There are some lists around the internet, but they are not so up to date and some are harder to find. So I am gonna build one slowly. Adding books, magazines, zines and whatever else we can find there that I find useful and intriguing for OSR games. Next time you come here, I will have more! If you have suggestions, comment below!

  3. I think I used Lulu for 2 RPGs and they were very quick to print and ship in Canada. Here are some other games:
    --Open Adventure Basic Rulebook by Kyle Mecklem (98 pages, OSR logo on the cover)
    --White Lies RPG in French, 414 pages (this is the DWD Studios game of espionage using old-school rules, 5 "spy" character-classes that go up to Level 10, but translated into French and re-edited by John Grümph. The original DWD Studios game in English is not on Lulu.) print or .pdf
    --Shitlord: The Triggering by E. Reagan Wright (a fantasy OSR but spells, items & monsters poke fun at the Politically Correct) print or .pdf

    You might find much more on a search of "OSR RPG" on Lulu.

  4. Oh, and your page could benefit from alphabetizing each section, when you can!

  6. Hey, I see you have 43 AD, which is one of my favorites (love the combat system). You should also check out Zenobia by the same author as it uses the same system and is more of the traditional Sword & Sorcery setting. http://www.lulu.com/shop/paul-elliott/zenobia/paperback/product-23936692.html

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells - Complete RPG in Draft Text

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells IndieGoGo campaign ended about a month ago. It was my first crowdfunding campaign by my own (we made one for the Brazilian version of Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells to pay for a print run and some other stuff), and so far I am really happy with it (even though the currency exchange is quite bad for me, as I receive less for the dollar than I pay for it).

Anyway, one of the last goals of the project was to release a artless version of the game for free too, to make the game more accessible and easy to use. So why not share the current draft of the rules here too with character sheets to go with it. This way you all can play the game while we wait for it to be ready!

So grab the complete Draft Text of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells RPG here! It takes some time to load all the content, but it's worth it, I promise you!

Grab the Character Sheets here, and here!

If you don’t know what exactly Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells is, check out the proj…

Dark Streets & Darker Secrets - Complete Game Text

November was NaGaDeMon (National Game Design Month), and I decided to create an Action Horror RPG using my system (updated with all the modifications of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells).

Inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, X-Files, The Chilling Tales of Sabrina, Grimm and many more TV Shows, comics and books, I quickly worte Dark Streets & Darker Secrets. It is written in a very direct and simple way, similar to Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells originally was, but with uodated rules and a lot of tools and tables to assist the Referee in creating adventures, NPCs, locations, artifacts, monsters and much more.

The book itself will eventually be release in partnership with Gallant Knight Games, but the text is already written and ready to be used, so I am sharing it here with you all! There is no official character sheet yet. I am working on it. But a simple Index Card will work just as well!

So here it is: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1QlFYafvxvJAyk_zMgBNmC5TZ…

Alternate Vancian Magic System for OSR Games

Okay, let me get his out straight away. I am not an Jack Vance scholar, literature major, or real wizard. I just love OSR games, love what I’ve read of The Dying Earth Series and other Appendix N books and really like to tinker with game systems (as well as create stuff). So I’ve come up with an alternate Vancian Magic System that makes spellcasting more flexible, leveless (even though you can still use the standard spell list in your game of choice) and insert some risk in the sorcery art (which I think is essential, as we are dealing with unnatural forces).

In the stories I’ve read, magicians, when they were imparting the spell energies in their minds to cast them later, would make increasingly greater effort to put as many spells as they could in their memory. There was not definite limit. Some could impart more, some less, and this could vary. They could risk filling their minds with spells, but if they pushed too hard, they could lose and release all that energy uncontrollably. …
