A Role-Playing Game of Blood & Sweat, Pain & Hope
CONTENDERS is a role-playing game dealing with the shady and painful world of boxing.
Each player takes on the role of a contender, a pugilist desperate to fight his way out of the gutter.
Can your fighter build the hope and confidence necessary to become a true champion?
Or is he destined to be dragged down into a sea of pain and despair?
This is the booklet version of Contenders, formatted for double sided printing to save you paper and ink. This version is not intended to be read on screen.
Contenders is a fast paced dramatic role-playing game incorporating a tense, tactical and downright brutal boxing system.
The game doesn't require a GM or any preparation time. Jump straight into the Desert City world of shady deals and broken bones.
Contenders was a winning entry in The Ronnies, a RPG design competition run by Ron Edwards, sorcerer supreme of RPG theory.
The original 24hr version is still available as a free download to give you a feel of the game.
