Barbarians Versus

ZIP File

Have you ever wondered what might happen if axe-wielding, bloodthirsty barbarians came face to face with vile alien invaders from beyond the stars?

Barbarians Versus is the roleplaying game of barbarian warriors and their battle with the vile reptoids from outer space. This tongue-in-cheek RPG comes packed in a 32 page PDF with all the rules you need to loot, pillage, maim, and party. The easy-to-learn, fast-paced game system is centered around descriptive roleplaying and imagination. Essentially, the more dice you roll, the more likely your barbarian is going to kick some serious alien ass -- and the more roleplaying you do, the more dice you'll have to roll!

Written by Nathan J. Hill, author of Key20 Publishing's Eldritch Ass Kicking, Barbarians Versus features:

  • Fast-paced, easy-to-learn game mechanics (roll fistfuls of D10s)
  • Fun barbarian creation (cool abilities, awesome items)
  • Tons of opportunity for descriptive, brutal roleplaying (smash! punch! snap!)
  • Complete drinking rules (barbarians like beer)
  • Random looting table (shiny things!)
  • The secrets of the alien invaders (foul stench?)
  • Ancient barbarian wisdom (to smash or not to smash)
  • Full color cover art by the fantastic Jeremy Mohler
  • Two page starter adventure: "The Black Pit"

Fun is the word here. The theme of the game is what sells it. If lighthearted barbarian hijinks sound like a good time to you then you will like this game. If not, you won't. The system hardly even enters the equation. It does its job, it is simple and [...]

The North is a cold, hard land of tundra and tribesmen. The South is warmer and richer, its people softer and more civilised. When raiding season comes, the barbarian hordes sweep down across the Grey Peaks to seek out wealth and glory. But this year [...]

Barbarian To-Do List: 1. Drink Mead and Get Drunk I think this game starts off on the right foot and keeps on going. It's very funny and well written, with great formatting and simple rules. Character creation is easy to follow and, although the autho [...]

My intent as a "new" GM was to run a first and simplified campaign. When I saw Barbarians Versus advertised, I knew I had to try it. LIKED: I love the format and the easy step-by-step directions for characters and for Game Master [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
