What Is Basic Fantasy RPG?
The Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game is a rules-light game system modeled on the classic RPG rules of the early 1980's. Though based loosely on the d20 SRD v3.5, Basic Fantasy RPG has been written largely from scratch to replicate the look, feel, and mechanics of the early RPG game systems. It is suitable for those who are fans of "old-school" game mechanics. Basic Fantasy RPG is simple enough for children in perhaps second or third grade to play, yet still has enough depth for adults as well.
Basic Fantasy RPG is an Open Source game system, supported by dedicated fans worldwide who have contributed hundreds of pages of rules supplements, adventure modules, and other useful and enjoyable game materials as seen on our downloads page. We'd love for you to join us on our forum where we discuss the game as well as creating new materials for it.
What Does It Cost?
Nothing. You can download the PDF files or the original OpenDocument (i.e. LibreOffice or OpenOffice.org) files from the downloads page at no charge. Or, you can purchase a print copy from our storefront at Lulu.com, where I have published the rules at cost. That's right... I don't make a single penny of profit from the sale of the printed copies.
Where Can I Learn More?
The first place to go to learn more about the game and the people playing it is our forums. There you will find early releases of materials not yet present on our downloads page, as well as advice and discussions about the game.
How Can I Contribute?
All submissions should be in original source format if possible; text submissions may be in Microsoft Word format, but we much prefer OpenDocument format, as created by programs like LibreOffice or OpenOffice.org, which are both available for free from their respective sites. If you don't have either program, we recommend LibreOffice as it is able to import more "foreign" file formats.
Just send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll get it processed and add it to our downloads page. Or better yet, post your work-in-progress as a new thread in the Basic Fantasy forums and we'll pitch in and help you get it finished.
