Dragon Slayers RPG

Watermarked PDF

A game of epic adventure and dragon slaying!

Dragon Slayers RPG is a smart, lean, action-packed role-playing system. It's been built from the ground up to deliver cinematic fantasy adventure – as epitomized in films like The Lord of the Rings trilogy – but variant rules for gritty realism, epic levels, and even a space opera conversion (all included) make any setting possible!

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

Easy to learn, easy to play, and perfect for gamers of all experience levels.

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 over 100 feats and spells to totally customize your hero.

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

No trap options, proficiency restrictions, or assumed party roles. Your class is a starting point, not a straitjacket. Combat and Utility skills advance separately, 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 enhanced versatility without overshadowing mundane specialists. More powerful "ritual" spells 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:

Flexible mechanics effortlessly map to any action-adventure universe.

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 low-prep monsters mean you spend less time crunching numbers and more time planning awesome scenarios 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.

Presented in a clean, simple layout for easy reference and printer-friendliness.

Dragon Slayers is a living game. It has grown and improved via four 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 14-page preview shows off the core mechanics, combat rules, and the first steps of character creation, so you can judge for yourself if DSRPG is right for your table.

Includes: DSRPG Core Rulebook (25 pages), Bestiary (15 pages), Space Opera Conversion (10 pages), Variant Rules (7 pages), Bonus Feats (3 pages), Character Cards (2 per sheet), Full-size Character Sheet.

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

In the core there is an advanced class druid that gives a poison attack but there are no details on this. There is a poison feature monsters use in the bestiary, but this is not explained in the most clear way (do poisoned people keep taking damage and when). This should be clearly explained in the core book.

That aside great little rpg, best of luck with future products.

The Cover doesn't have the title on it, at least not on my download, it's just a picture with no text. Can I get one that does?

Any chance of getting a PoD option? Thanks!

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!

File Size:

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.
