  1. BRP Star Frontiers Adventure: SF-0 Crash on Volturnus

    During the playtest of Basic Roleplaying, my group and I converted tons of settings to see how they held up.
    Star Frontiers was one such setting.
    Here is the conversion of SF-0: Crash on Volturnus, the adventure that was originally included in the Star Frontiers boxed set. I didn't include the maps as I own the original adventure and just used them, however they can more then likely be found on the internet.

  2. BRP Star Frontiers Players Book

    Here is the Players Book.

    It's not perfect. It was never really meant for outside consumption.

  3. BRP John Carter

    During the playtest of Basic Roleplaying, my group and I converted tons of settings and characters to see how the system held up. While many have been lost to the corrupted hard drives of time, some have recently be discovered on an old flash drive.
    John Carter was one such character to be re-discovered.
    Here's hoping it will be of interest to someone out there.

  4. 2300AD to BRP

    40 (38) pages of conversion rules, professions, weapon data, alien data, Star systems, Character sheet, etc.

    The CharSheet is very generic and can be used for any setting. The rules are not too specific as well.

    This is the new Version 1.4 !

    Thanks to Marc Miller and Far Future Enterprises to make this stuff available!
    Have a look at www.farfuture.net for setting information, background material and adventure modules.

    2300AD books are mainly full of background information, so if you are looking for a hard sci-fi setting it might be the right stuff for you.

  5. Masters of M'theria

    Space Opera setting for BRP. This is basically our home brew campaign, I just formatted it as a rulebook or setting book. Figured I'd share with the community. Enjoy!

  6. 2300AD BRP: Mission Acrturus

    40 pages document with conversions for the original Mission Arcturus adventure.
    The PDF includes a complete Marine team with stats and descriptions, more about the Kafers, the different Kafer weapons and their stats, Kafer assault teams, optional rule for Task Times, an updated Weapon and Armor table and 13 pages of newly created maps for Mission Arcturus.

    Even if you do not use the 2300AD background, this pdf is generic enough to be used in a Sci-Fi or modern days setting. The maps consist of overview maps and encounter (Miniature) maps.

    Note: You still need the original Mission Arcturus Module from FarFuture Enterprises (former GDW) to play the mission, as this PDF does not include the adventure itself.

    Hope you enjoy!

    BTW: this is the "reduced" version, and some images are missing. Click here to download the "full version".

  7. Ragnarok Black Character Sheet

    Custom character sheet for my own hard-SF setting, Ragnarok Black. The game itself is basically a survival horror in a fairly hard SF setting (FTL is the only real 'miracle tech').

    I put it together in Word and I've tried to make it as functional as possible:

    - Landscape format to allow you to see all your skills easily.
    - Grey boxes around all the 'crunchy' stat boxes to help them stand out.
    - Fields included for Crititical, Special and Fumble numbers, just to keep the game flowing.
    - Several 'Tracker' fields running along the edges. These allow you to slide paperclips onto the sheet to make book-keeping for ammo, HP and PP less of a chore. They mirrored on the back of the sheet to make it even easier.

    There are a few setting specific details such as the Fear Threshold stat, the section for implants on the reverse (modified powers system) and the 'Interface Tool' sections on the equipment. I've uploaded the Word version though so feel free to modifiy it if you want. The only other changes are that I've dropped the Status skill and added Zero-G and I've bumped the base level of the Technical skill to 15%.

    EDIT: The paper size is set to A4 so you may need to fiddle with it a bit to get it print properly if that's not your usual size.

  8. [Ragnarok Black] Action Point System

    Attached is the first draft of my AP system for BRP. It's fairly simple but adds a bit of book-keeping to combat. This is very much in its's early stages so I'll upload revisions to it as I find problems (or others do).

    The idea behind it is to open up more tactical options and make combat more dynamic. If you played X-Com, Jagged Alliance or Silent Storm then you should have some idea what to expect from it.

    It's primarily written with my Hard SF game in mind so you'll probably need to tweak some of the details to make it fit for other games but I've included a few optional sections for those that want to add more detail or account for factors that I've ignored.

  12. Vulcan's Forge

    So my own humble addition to the BRP canon was the 'Incident At Vasir Station' in 'The River Terror'.

    I wrote a sequel to scenario that for a subsequent BRP adventure contest, which was rejected.

    Here for your amusement is that scenario.

  14. BRP Striker! Sidearms

    These combat tables contain BRP conversions of the smallarms and light support weapons from Striker! Book 3 for Classic Traveller, plus a little rule that reconciles armour penetration with bullet damage. You will need to look at the original books for descriptions of the weapons, because we don't want any copyright problems here ... 
    Or you could use a bit of common sense (they're not completely fictional weapons after all).
    Or look them up in the Mongoose Traveller rules or the MGT SRD.

  15. Religions and Cults of Cydoria

    The following chapter was cut from Swords of Cydoria prior to layout. I present it here as a free supplement for those running games within the setting and as a preview for those thinking of purchasing the book.

    Cydoria is generally polytheistic. Each cultural region has its own pantheon of gods and each city-state worships a patron god of that city. With the advent of aero-ship trade, worshippers carried their gods from city to city. Today, a new pantheon of gods exists with representatives from every culture and city. What follows are a few representatives of each cultural pantheon.

  17. Karak, the techno-magic of the Sdara Vatra

    Karak is the mastery of the forbidden techno-magic of the ancient Sdara Vatra, practiced by reclusive thaumaturges who jealously guard their secrets.

    This "Lost supplement of Cydoria" was a chapter originally written for the Swords of Cydoria setting but which had to be cut from the final book for space. I provide the material here free of charge.

  18. Converting Abstract Wealth to Actual Coinage

    The abstract wealth system in Swords of Cydoria is intended to eliminate book-keeping and worrying about fiddly nickels and dimes. However, there are times when either a player or game master wants to know exactly how many coins is in that pile of treasure, or how much does something really cost. For those times, I provide the following tables.

  20. BRP Star Frontiers GM Screen (Incomplete)

    During the playtest of Basic Roleplaying, my group and I converted tons of settings to see how they held up. Star Frontiers was one such setting.

    This is an "incomplete" GM screen. It does include ranged and melee weapons... so there's that.

  25. RIFTS to BRP

    Some notes on converting RIFTS TO BRP

    Armor values were difficult cause 1MDC= 100 SDC or 100 HIT POINTS!
    if we converted it by that we end up with ridicoulous numbers in the 1000 of hp
    100 MDC would be 10,000 hp and RIFTS is a high hit point system BRP is not!

    So i had to work on this its not perfect but i works fairly well i think

    Weapons were converted much easier as both games have stats for law rockets,90mm recoiless rifles and tank guns so with three values the rest was a logical progression i think.

    I will make more rules and upload them when i can!

    if you have questions ask me, you can modify it as you see fit
