No Dice Games publish Random Encounters

By on 14 December 2009

It’s been a long time coming but the No Dice team have released Random Encounters just in time for Christmas.

The book is sort of a supplement to the No Dice Core Book, also still available. But in making a collection of adventures we ended up producing a consistent, servicable mini-system. This by no means represents the limits of the No Dice concept, already we’ve got work underway on our next parcel of products none of which resemble the system that has been adapted to all the genres in this book. Random Encounters is a kind of example showing things that can be done with the system.

We’re so proud of the work that we’ve done and keen to deliver it into as many hands as possible we’re launching at a lower price point than the volumes will be available for in the future. So buy now and save yourself some dosh.

The paperback book is being sold at a launch price of £7.00 in paperback and can be bought here.

The download is being sold at a launch price of £1.50 and can be bought here.

If you’d like to get a deeper look into the kinds of materials that are in the book four of the adventures, sans artwork, are available from the No Dice site in PDF format from the Downloads page. There are two adventures, The Arcas 5000 (a sort of Death Race style auto apocalypse adventure) and Black Lake (a monster thriller with corporate espionage flavours), an entire RP mini-game The Scoop (SF News game) and a card-based NPC generator.

Have a great christmas and an RP filled 2010.

All the best,

Leo, Sue and Justin
The No Dice Team

and also

Ian, author of The Scoop

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
