An all-NEW version of the DINO-PIRATES OF NINJA ISLAND roleplaying game! And it’s free!
This game is based on (well, actually, just kind of copied almost wholesale from) the tremendous Old School Hack game by Kirin Robinson. It’s super-simple, and designed for running off the top of your head, with very little prep required. The full rules are posted on the DINO-PIRATES website, and are available for you to copy and reproduce any way you like, under a Creative Commons license. We’ve created a great downloadable PDF that turns into a bunch of handy-at-the-table miniature rulebooks, as well as the class and character sheets needed for Old School Hack.
There’s nothing else you need, except a few friends and a lot of imagination! Well, and dice, and paper, and all that sort of stuff. In the days to come we’ll be posting more materials, tips for getting the most out of a DPoNI campaign, and other great stuff.
The sharp-eyed among you will note that this is subtitled “Basic Game” — that’s not random. We are working on a more detailed sort of game, but it’s a ways out yet. In the meantime, enjoy the new Basic Game!
