A game of epic adventure and dragon slaying!

Dragon Slayers RPG is a smart, lean, action-packed role-playing system, showcasing the latest innovations in modern gaming. It's been built from the ground up to deliver cinematic swashbuckling adventure – as epitomized in movies like The Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean – but variant rules for injuries, epic levels, and even a space opera conversion (all included) make any setting possible!

At a glance: Rules-lite, step dice, re-roll points, character classes, abstract equipment, level-based advancement, rest-based spellcasting.

Easy to learn, easy to play, and perfect for introducing new players to the hobby.

For Players:

Choose your own level of complexity! You can make a complete character in 60 seconds (with lots of re-roll points at your disposal) or take a little more time and spend those points on feats and spells to totally customize your hero.

Seven broad skills elegantly cover all attacks, checks, and contests with a minimum of modifiers.

No trap options, proficiency restrictions, or assumed party roles. Combat and Utility skills are kept separate, so you never have to choose between an interesting character and an effective one.

Fast, engaging combat thanks to “around-the-table” initiative, one unified roll for accuracy and damage, exploding dice (for the heroes), and license to improvise.

Understated magic gives spellcasters increased versatility without overshadowing mundane specialists. Powerful rituals (teleportation, resurrection, etc) require unique components retrieved from dangerous places – ensuring the whole party gets involved.

Generous rest and recovery rules make magical healing strictly optional (though still nice to have).

For Game Masters:

Headache-free story pacing thanks to GM checkpoints and reasonable adventuring day assumptions.

Attacks scale with hit points across the board, which means encounter balance is as easy as “compare total party HP vs total enemy HP.”

Polished, streamlined rules and zero-prep monsters mean you spend less time crunching numbers and more time planning awesome stories and memorable NPCs.

Making homebrew content and converting characters/powers/items/adventures from other game systems is super easy, thanks to straightforward scaling and a robust math foundation.

Dragon Slayers is a living game. It has grown and improved via three years of player feedback and will continue to do so in the future. Dragon Slayers RPG innovates, but also integrates many lessons from other excellent role-playing systems. In the same spirit, this game has been released as open content – you can use our ideas in your own projects! The 11-page preview shows off the core mechanics, combat rules, and the first few steps of character creation, so you can judge for yourself if DSRPG is right for your table.

Includes: DSRPG Core Rulebook (23 pages), Bestiary (15 pages), Space Opera Conversion (10 pages), Variant Rules (4 pages), Character Cards (2 per sheet), Full-size Character Sheet.

Requires a standard set of polyhedral dice (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20).

Thanks for your interest, Jesse!

I'm afraid PoD is not an option at this time. Fortunately, Dragon Slayers RPG is printer-friendly by design.

Hope that helps!

Format
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.
