Book Description

#1 in Free Roleplaying and Fantasy Kindle Books "January, February, and March 2012"
#14 in Free Fantasy Kindle Books "January 2012"
Top 50 and under in Free Fantasy Kindle Books "From January 2012 Onwards..."
Outranked "Angry Birds" in Games on Kindle at one point.

This is a pen and paper tabletop roleplaying game, not a computer game. If you're looking for one of those, I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere. I highly recommend the dungeon-crawling German rogue-like "Lost Labyrinth" which is free to download and a purely awesome game.

If you're looking for fiction, you're in luck! You will find the completely free comic fantasy novel "The End of The World" at the very back of this e-book. Enjoy.

If you're interested in an RPG game, please read on below.

***April 29th News***

I'd like to give a special 'thank you' to the tens of thousands of gamers and readers who have downloaded and bought my books. That's totally awesome guys!

New version of Challenger in the works.

***

Challenger RPG Game Features:

Free, 20+ Races, 36 Classes, 50+ skills including: specific skills, broad skills, power skills, and special ability skills. GM rolls no dice, completely player-driven approach to gaming with a core mechanic using the d20 and set damage ratings for most weapons so combat is faster and more furious than ever before. 2x faster combat than 4E Dungeons and Dragons.

More than 60 Pages of GM advice useable with any system. New rules on stacking monsters, monster subtypes, magic items, a list of monsters for use with Challenger, traps, and rules on non-combat obstacles complete with TN's.

The rules on Base Skills have been removed and clarified. No more must you roll 75 different base skills to start play. It's as simple as choosing your skills, classes, race, 5 powers, purchasing equipment and calculating your stats and you're done!

New rules on armor, equipment, and improved background powers to further detail your character like never before. Crazy races have been ditched and new races combined to make the rules on races simpler, more flexible, and even more entertaining!

You'll still find the classic traits generator for your character, improved formatting thanks to the masterful Matt Fleming (soon to be included in the game credits) and fantastic artwork by the incomparable L.E.C.D.

Our Mission Statement:

Despite the low (or nonexistent) price of this product I've invested hundreds (if not thousands) of hours in its production. I've flown over 1,500 miles and met countless game designers, playtesters, and fellow gamers such as yourself, and I know Challenger isn't done yet. There's still a long way to go but I must thank everyone who helped me. This game would not be what it is today without the invaluable feedback from countless gamers such as yourself. If you have anything at all to say about the game, good or bad, I'd love to hear it. Any critical advice would be even more welcome. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done system February 5, 2012
By Jetpack
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Presuming that you understand what you are getting, this is a fine role playing game system. I wouldn't say it's for power gamers, but if you have an intelligent group of players, this could be quite a bit of fun. Tons of races and an amazing focus on the players. Game master doesn't roll any dice, and the players always have initiative.

I also give the designer credit in his emphasis on getting feedback from the players. Rare to see a game that so strongly points this out - talk to your players.

A steal for free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Free and Fun! August 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll admit that I only downloaded this because it was free. For an indy RPG, it's very well put together. It's designed to be simple and fun. There are many fun classes to choose from and you don't need a bunch of different dice or other materials to play a game. I think this would be fun system to take on an airplane or road trip to play with my friends. I could imagine actually playing this with a car full of my gaming friends and even the driver would be able to play along without taking his eyes off the road.

I rated this game 5 stars because it's a good quality free indy game. The people giving it one star because it's not up to the same standards as D&D 4E are expecting too much from a FREE game. When Wizards of the Coast puts out free D&D stuff, it's not nearly as expansive as this book. It seems that this game was put together by an old-school gamer for other gamers to enjoy. If it seems like this is similar to D&D 1E, it's because that game was also designed by a small number of gamers for other gamers to enjoy. If you like older style rpg materials with simple art and rules, get this game! If you're a fan of newer games with big, flashy and expensive books, it's a free game...get it anyway!

Finally, people expecting a video game should have read the description. Even if it was not possible to see that this was a book and not a video game, it does not deserve a one star rating. Such ratings should be reserved for books that are offensive, harmful to others, or cheat others out of their money. This book is a way for people to unlock the possibilities of their imaginations and does not cost any money. If it's not what you were looking for, delete it from your kindle or get a gaming group together and try it out. From the what I can see of the one star reviews, those people's overall literacy skills could greatly benefit from turning off the gaming consoles and getting into some real gaming!

3.0 out of 5 stars pretty good May 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
a pretty good rpg system on it's own, and even better because it's free. it doesn't take itself too seriously, but to me, that's part of the charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Role Playing Game! April 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a new role playing game. This is not a board game. I read some reviews where the reader expected something other than what this book is: a book of rules.

All role playing games are played in the mind of the players, not on a board. So, all role playing games require books that explain the rules. For example, AD&D has the Dungeon Master's Guide and the Player's Handbook. So consider this book the Player's Handbook and DMG.

It is a new and exciting fantasy role playing game and it is great. Its simpler than D&D and more flexible. There are plenty of races and classes to choose from and you have the flexibility to tailor your adventures and advance your character. It even seems fairly easy to take your existing favorite characters and adapt them to the game.

I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good rules light, yet easy to customize system. August 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good narrative style RPG system that experienced gamers will enjoy. Newbies might have a little trouble with the rules light options, but otherwise a solid system.

5.0 out of 5 stars don't change a thing June 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
wow, an amatuer rpg done right. when i breezed through this on the kindle i was expecting total crap. but what i got was totally amazed. he took the best parts of gurps and classic dnd and trimmed it down to create the perfect template for an experienced gm to acomplish anything any good dm whose anygood could dream up. i'm deffinately buying the paperback to supplement my eberron campaigns. with this ruleset any campaign setting could be a backdrop.

fyi- for anyone reading this book, though its writtten like its author dosen't take it seriously, its actually intentionally written to be sparse on the descriptiveness. the intention is to be a complete system for any type of theme imaginable so the whole 'do-hicky' talk is the authors way of saying fill in the fluff yourself.

special note- to all those videogamers out there who never heard of a pen and paper rpg give this game some props. this is how good ideas start-from nowhere. and if it wasn'y for gygax and TSR the the creaters of an industry (google it), the very videogames you cherish so much may have never had existed at all. afterall tabletop rpgs are like the ancient ancesters that video games evolved from. so show some respect.

Just dice rolls and elves. Not anything new here. Claimed to actually be something you could play purely on your kindle. Guess not.

It's a pretty standard system. I have not had a chance to play with it yet but it look promising. I'll add to the review after I get a chance play test it.
