RPG Free List is all about face to face, pencil and paper gaming with real people... but with one caveat, we want our role-playing game rules to be free.

News and Reviews

  • RPGTab - Free Tech!
    RPGs and FREE ought to go hand in hand, especially in this day of computer gear and communication tech inserting into all facets of life.  The whole world of like-minded individuals can get together to share and play their favorite games!

    Well, recently a tangentially related site came to my attention.  RPGTab
    is all about gaming stuff for use on your tablet devices.  You can find dice rollers, monster and spell databases, name generators and a whole lot more for a variety of games. 
    The Best Part... all FREE, the way we like it!

    And, if it could not be cooler, these guys  write Apps for Beer Brewing, Streaming Video assistance, and more through the related site AppBrewers

    Obviously I encourage everyone to drop by and check out their wares!

    Over time, we may need to add a new section to our offerings to showcase those who share freely... hmmm frrreeee

  • & Magazine
    We are all about free gaming around here. We should take the time to occasionally mention some of the other sorts of free stuff associated with role-playing games.

    To start off, I would like to point everyone to the very nice "&" magazine.  In their introductory issue they speak about how both "dungeons" and "dragons" are used already in a variety of ways... leaving them little to work with.  "&" being leftover becomes both a symbol and name that still stirs the old school original games genre.

    Check them out.  The pdf issues are great, and did we mention FREE!

  • Wizardawn - Tabletop Games
    There are folks who really stand out as believers in role-play as a hobby... individuals who go out of their way to produce material and share it with the world.  

    I want to bring some attention to one such producer who has produced not one, not two, not even three... but a multitude of gaming materials including 4 role-playing games and a table-top "board game".  

    In addition to pdf (for print) materials, Wizardawn has produced wonderful rpg oriented generators for stuff like maps, names, potions, and the like.  

    We are all about the Free Games around here. One should make a point of checking out each of the games Wizardawn has produced.

    Stay a while and describe a potion or two with one of his name generators, or stock an entire dungeon with one of his full Dungeon Generators.  You can spend hours just playing with his toys! Make sure you drop him an email to say thanks for all the cool stuff!

  • Another One Lost
    Happens time to time.  A game is no longer freely shared.  We wish them the best with their game offerings, but OpenQuest seems to be gone in free format for now.  Perhaps the base-rules will become available again some time in the future.  This post will remain so that they have some mention here, but the listing is being removed for now.

    OpenQuest (link) - A game of fantasy adventure using a core mechanic of a D100 (percentile) roll. Extremely customizable, based upon the RuneQuest SRD (MRQ SRD).Look for free rules in the OpenQuest Developers Kit Zip File.

  • More More More...
    After some sharing on the social networks, we have received several new suggestions for games.  We have been working diligently to get these added to the listings.  Among more recent additions are:
    Of course, we can always use more options.  I would also like to add that while we cannot copy such from other sites, we can post up new original reviews of Free Games.  Feel free to use the Contact page to get with us about reviews.
