This is a collection of links to over 500 free role-playing games (RPGs) on the WWW. RPG here refers solely to narrative (aka "table-top", "pencil-and-paper") games rather than various computer games, MUSH's, etc. For more info, see my general RPG page. In general, each game is listed with author, a capsule description, page count, and file format (i.e. ASCII, HTML, PDF, etc.). The meaning of "page count" is semi-arbitrary for ASCII and HTML, since results differ for different browsers and print setups, but they are at least consistent within each category.
owers and Perils is a RolePlaying Game written by Richard Snider and published by Avalon Hill in 1983.

Powers and Perils has been described the most elegant roleplaying game, as well as the most complex game ever developed, although not by the same people. Fact is that Avalon Hill published one sepearte adventure, Tower of the Dead, in 1984 and published some material in its game magazine Heroes.
