(Barbarians Versus Vile Reptilian Invaders from Outer Space)

You hail from the icy north, a land of snowy, jagged peaks. You are trained to kill and molded to survive. You are a legend among warriors. You are a barbarian.

The normal raiding season has turned out to be unusual. Word has spread among the various barbarian parties throughout the countryside -- castles, cities, and villages are empty and deserted. In their place, reptilian aliens from beyond the sky have built sprawling slave camps and massive factories. These evil creatures are armed with unusual weapons--iron sticks that shoot lightning, delicate stones that explode upon impact, flying chariots that arc through the sky, and invisible walls that shock those who try to escape. To gain honor this year, barbarians must take the battle to these alien invaders or go home empty-handed. No self-respecting barbarian would ever return without such glory.

This tongue-in-cheek roleplaying game packs all the rules you need to loot, pillage, maim, and party. The easy-to-learn, fast-paced game mechanics are centered around descriptive roleplaying and imagination. If you like to make up stories about savage barbarians and the creatures they smash to tiny bits, then this is the game for you.

    • Fast-paced, rules-light system utilizes fistfuls of ten-sided dice.
    • Choose cool abilities and awesome items to create barbarian characters.
    • Tons of opportunity for descriptive, brutal roleplaying (smash! punch! snap!)
    • Find out how much beer your barbarian needs to get drunk and smash even more!
    • Roll on random looting tables to find shiny things!
    • Includes a starter adventure: The Black Pit
    • Battle greedy, grouchy, cunning Dwarves as an alternate setting.
    • Fight zombie cows, chickens, and other animals or barbarians as an alternate setting.

The download for this digest-sized book includes two versions: single-page and special format for double-sided printing.

Originally published by Mystic Ages Publishing.

"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."

"I think this game starts off on the right foot and keeps on going... This game is meant to be fun and light hearted with lots of barbarian smashy goodness and alien lizards."

"BARBARIANS VERSUS has now become my choice for any PARTY RPG. Let's face it, any game with rules for how much liquor your barbarian can drink is a party game... Fun is the watchword here people. Just a helluva lot of fun."

Easily one of the most funny and entertaining rules-light RPGs on the scene. The setting is loosely defined, with broad strokes that help creating the mood and give more inspiration than hard data, the rules are very friendly both to newcomers t [...]

SIX POINT SUMMARY Random Barbarian Facts (Barbarians argue with Barbarians, they fight with everyone else) are scattered around the book and are pretty humorous. The game reads like it's hard to take seriously, and th [...]

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.
