MACABRE, a free roleplaying game

By on 18 November 2008

Farsight Games, the people behind the ODDS ezine, have released their free roleplaying game, MACABRE. Utilising the SKETCH roleplaying system and only a single d6, MACABRE is a game about witchcraft.

SKETCH games are designed for one-off, single night adventures, for when gaming groups are taking a break between campaigns, or if a few players want to do a fast off-the-cuff adventure with no intention of getting involved in a long campaign. The simplicity of the rules and character creation is such that a game can be set up in minutes. The rules are simple and easy to use, requiring only the use of a six-sided dice for all aspects of the game.

So, if you find yourself stuck for an evening’s adventure and need something to play at a moment’s notice, then a SKETCH game is your answer.

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 and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
