I Found Lightweight Games for You
I’m a great fan of lightweight and free games. I surfed around in the internet and found these:
Some stats and an easy task resolution: 2d6 + stat modifier. Results are
sliding (catastrophe, miscast, delayed success, immediate success or
puissant success). Looks like a Barbarians of
Lemuria/Talisman/Apocalypse-World-Hack. Check it out at
There’s already a nice little hack (which I like even better) on Tales Of The Grotesque (broken link removed).
The Bureau is an Apocalypse-World
by Paul T. with different dice types. Very slim and nicely done. The
setting is something like Men in Black & Ghostbusters. Character
creation is a bit more free-form which I like a lot. Character traits
(which remind me of Lady
Blackbird are an
incentive to do something interesting in order to get some game
resources. Helping and experience also give the game a new twist.
The game was developed for children but I honestly can’t find a reason why I wouldn’t play it with adults.
