  1. I would like to thank you for this video. My Fiance loves apocalyptic games and was searching for a good one and the one you recommended worked great!

  2. I wrote an essay with links to tons of free RPG stuff anyone can download, for the genre they prefer:

  3. …and I agree that Star Frontiers was great, I got my start with it too, though I had an AD&D 1st-edition Player's Handbook for a time. Download "Alpha Dawn" (characters and combat) and Knight Hawks (which were the starship rules,), from this site, free:
    I'm afraid that Wizards of the Coast is selling reprints, and so the "free" fan digital editions can no longer be circulated.

  4. Other free SF tabletop RPG stuff.

    Star Wars Edge of the Empire has a free quickstart adventure "Under a Black Sun" with basic rules and characters included. You don't even need the special Star Wars dice.

    There are a lot of freebie quickstart games in the SF section of the Quickstart page on Unpossible Journeys, including for the new Star Trek Adventures RPG, Star Wars quickstart called "Under a Black Sun", Numenéra, and Shadowrun.

  5. I'd be somewhat dodgy about called Star Wars 2 edition "Free", I think Disney won't agree with that opinion. Although it's out of print, it's still copyrighted, although widely available to download (but then again what isn't). Personally appreciate any mention anyone makes to it, I've been running a website RPGGamer.org , for the past 17 years supporting the system, with over 5000 pages of homebrew stats and adventures to extend the game into the newer movies and series.
