Free Western Adventure From No Dice Games

By on 29 July 2009

Keeping the ball rolling on their Downloads page July’s free PDF from No Dice Games features a Western from Sue called the Duchamps Mine Bounty and is the second release in their June-October wave.

All the adventures coming out between now and October feature the No Dice Compact Character Sheet which has also been added to downloads. So with those two files and your Core Book tucked under your arm (or loaded onto your laptop) you should be good to go.

All the adventures featured in this cycle will be compiled into Random Encounters Vol 1 along with loads of bonus stuff and all new artwork by their own Justin (who will also be contributing an adventure to the compendium). So the PDF serves as a taster but is, in and of itself, a complete nugget of No Dice joy.

Next month they’re taking a trip back in time to Victorian Britain where Justin will be serving up a dose of baroque horror faced down by the celebrities of the Victorian age in The Empire’s Finest.

About No Dice
No Dice RPG is a new system that was launched on June 1st 2009. The Core Book seeks to take the Role Playing hobby to some new places. The system attempts to redefine what is meant by the term “story-based RPG” in that most of the advice and techniques it suggests are not based around numbers.

Over time they’ve developed some fairly innovative uses for the playing cards we use as a randomiser. There are effects you can achieve with playing cards that you just can’t achieve with dice. Examples are available not only in the Core Book but also in the free monthly adventure PDFs released by the team.

There are also support materials available in audio format in their No Dice Podcast and a forum packed with No Dice resources written by their vibrant community.

Stop by at the site, download the podcast and join the forum. They’re all waiting to say hi!

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
