I thought about running it in a number of systems, but none were perfect for my needs. CHUP is designed to have minimal to no violence, which obviously rules out a … Continue reading Hexcrawl Mechanics

DM Section Full Splash Art

A lightweight tabletop RPG that leans into random chance.

Play as dungeon delvers and adventurers with strange powers, strange looks, and even stranger friends. Play as an organic Green Wizard, a Barbarian Monk, or a Ranger with total telekinetic control over all horses. Roll up a random alignment such as Pro-Fire, Anti-Plants.

Obscure Games With Obscure People


A podcast where we find obscure tabletop games, play a one shot with them, and then review them. Stars a rotating cast of funny people, some laden with deep RPG lore, and some fresh faced and new. Always something different happening here.

In this free tabletop RPG, you play as famous actors creating the newest blockbuster. Deal with producer meddling, limited audition options, and the possibility (probability) of being recast midfilm! All you need is paper, playing cards, and two d6s!

Fusion Dance


An RPG I wrote to emulate something at the middle point of Dragon Ball Z, Steven Universe, and the Power Rangers. Too much Japanese 90s TV led to this. Play as a group of heroes who must combine their powers to defeat the forces of evil.
