The Compendium of Free Tabletop Role Playing Games

This is a collection of games, and links to games, that I’ve collected since 1993. I’m always looking for more games, so if you have one to donate, please fill out this form. I prefer to just link to games, so that the author has complete control over the content. There’s always WordPress or Google Drive for hosting documents.

If you are looking for computer or online games, this is not the place for you. These are all just pencil-and-paper roleplaying game rules.

cool means I think this game is particularly cool for some reason known only to me. 🙂
