Icon List of Roleplaying Games

Welcome to the Roleplay Games forum, below you will find 'The List' of every RPG I could find that is either for sale currently or is a classic game that with a bit of luck could be found on places such as ebay for a fair price.

I haven't generally listed solely PDF or free games unless they are well known or well done. I have also left out those that have been out of print for over fifteen years due to their rarity and I have also tended not to list Foreign games with no current English translation. I have tried to list them by style or genre, so if you fancy a Sci-fi game you don't need to trawl through hundreds of systems.
Also if the game has had different editions using rules sets from earlier or even different systems I'll list the latest one, unless the newer version of the game has had so many fundimental changes background wise that they can not be considered the same setting anymore.

If the game name is followed by a set of numbers/letters it belongs to that system rules wise, in general games marked with the same system use alot of the basic rules of each other and are relatively simple to jump from one to another even if you couldn't really combine them from a story perspective. If it has nothing after it, that generally means it uses its own set of rules designed for that game alone or for a small number of other titles not really worth mentioning.

D20 - Dungeons and Dragons 4th edition
OWoD - Old World of Darkness - uses the original Storyteller system
WoD - current World of Darkness, using the new Storyteller system
StT - GAmes using the Storyteller system unattached to either WoD
AD&D - Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 2nd edition
MeG - Megaversal system by Palladium
UNI - Unisystem by Eden
BRP - Basic Role-playing system by Chaosium

Note - my eventual goal is to get as many of these games below linked to its gaming site if it still exsists or equivilent fan site, so folks can look into the different games if they want as well. Also if I've missed any clangers, or even a game which you like which wasn't huge in sales terms, let me know and I'll add it in.

Hi Druchii, nice list.

Here's another couple for you: MERP (Middle Earth Role Playing) - used a subbed down Rolemaster system; Star Frontiers (Sci-Fi, obviously); Golden Heroes (equally obviously, a superhero system).

Should 'Runequest' in your list also be listed as BRP? I always ran Runequest and Stormbringer together, as I never had enough of either to make a decent campaign, or was that just me being cheap and/or a loony?

:potentially embarrassing himself by exposing his cavalier attitude to other people's systems cyclops:

EDIT: I just re-read the criteria for selection at the top and I don't think any of my games apply... sorry :oops:

However, if anyone's interested there is a Star Frontiers revival going on; there's a site at http://www.starfrontiersman.com/ that has some interesting PDFs including the 2nd Ed rules.

Dead Reign, by Palladium Books, can be added to Horror.

'At two minutes to eleven, opposite the South African Brigade, at the eastern-most point reached by the British armies, a German machine-gunner, after firing off a belt without pause, was seen to stand up beside his weapon, take off his helmet, bow, and then slowly walk to the rear.' -John Buchan

Thanks for those guys and I'm sorry I took a while to add them. I couldn't edit it by the time you'd both posted so was sorta stuck for a while. However its all good now and I can edit, so I will also start to provide some links up there for the various games asap.

That kind of failed, but after a long period of inactivity I will now be able to continue with what I said I would be doing, so expect me to start adding in the links for each RPG over the coming days. I'll get started on it tonight.

Regards,
Jake.

I have started linking games to their respective websites. Some I have been unable to find the official website for, in these cases I have linked to one of their main fansites. There are a couple of occasions however that I have been unable to find a suitable fansite, in these cases I have instead linked to the games RPG Geek review page. Below is a list of which games fall under these circumstances:


Fansites Linked:
  • Chivalry and Sorcery
  • The Dark Eye

RPGGeek Linked:
  • Cadwallon (Rackham)
  • Conan RPG
  • Dark Sun
  • Diomin
  • Dragon Lance Campaign Setting

This is only so far, I have not got very far through the list yet as it's taking longer than I had planned. Therefore this list will be updated (possibly into the original post) the further through the list I get. If anybody is able to find the official website or fansites for the games above, it would be greatly appreciated if you could link it here so I can perfect the list.

Regards,
Jake.

As a writer and artist for Chaos 6010 A.D. I'm obligated to inquire if you can add it to the list. Also, our products can be found here:
