Last updated September 27, 2011 This is a collection of characters for GURPS Third Edition . (Or see Archangel Beth's Ships !)Within these pages, there are characters ranging from mages to accountants to high-tech idle rich, of many different point values, ready to be used as NPCs, local color, or even Player Characters. (Some of them were player characters before they got here.) Links to characters on other pages are marked with a "*".
Fantasy/Medieval Character Jobs or Occupations Most people think of themselves in terms of their jobs. "I'm a veterinarian." "I'm a writer." Your characters probably do too.
Fantasy worlds come in many varieties, from the "hard core" medieval-simulation school to the more fanciful realms of high fantasy, with alabaster castles and jeweled gardens in the place of the more traditional muddy squalor. Despite their differences, these share a vital common element: ordinary people. Most realms of fantasy, no matter how baroque or magical, can not get by without a supply of ordinary farmers, merchants, quarreling princes and palace guards. Clustered into villages and crowding the cities, they provide the human backdrop for adventure. Of course, doing the research necessary to find out how common a large city should be, or how many shoemakers can be found in a town, can take up time not all GMs have available.
Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game (OGL) Glory & Gold Won by Sorcery & Sword You’re no hero. You’re an adventurer: a reaver, a cutpurse, a heathen-slayer, a tight-lipped warlock guarding long-dead secrets. You seek gold and glory, winning it with sword and spell, caked in the blood and filth of the weak, the dark, the demons, and the vanquished.
Latest addition: Philippe DeBernay sent me a suggestion to replace the "luck token" idea - nothing to carry! He kindly gave me permission to post his idea about slip knots as luck tokens here. I have simply scanned the portion of his letter dealing with slip knots and posted it here as jpg file (214 KB), as it contains a useful illustration: Slip Knots as Luck Tokens (jpg) Thanks, Philippe!

This is a list of tabletop RPGs that have attracted my attention one way or another. That doesn’t mean I like all of them! I have omitted games that no longer have a home on the Web, and most commercial games. More exhaustive lists are pointed out at the bottom. Rules-light RPGs

What is a retro-clone? The OGL has allowed fans to recreate the rules of older, out of print editions of the world’s most popular fantasy roleplaying game. These are usually called “retro-clones” because they are “clones” of the rules to older (“retro”) editions of the world’s most popular fantasy roleplaying game. Most retro-clones have free PDF versions and most have nicely bound printed copies available for a very reasonable price. Retro-clones allow play of an older, out-of-print game system without the trouble and expense of tracking down a copy of an out-of-print game.
