    TLDR: A free Sci-Fi rule light game! Awesome! Play it!

    The game plays like a PbtA game but without all the moves defined, which is really great in play. I had some seasoned players and a relative newcomer and everyone could grasp the play style immediately even though all of us were new to this type of game.

    Character generation was a snap and the players made some really interesting characters while avoiding niche overlap. Character and ship options are all interesting and meaningful. The simple inventory system with this game makes perfect sense for a rules light game.

    Adventure prep was easy. I had a starting scenario, 3 events and 4 questions. The collaborative play took care of the rest. I trusted the rules as written and the game took on a life of its own immediately.

    When we reached the end of the job/adventure we decided this one-shot should be a few more sessions because a) the characters and setting were so fun, and b) the game was so much fun to play.

    I think one of the most memorable moments was when the player’s situation with a pirate attack frigate just kept snowballing with one failed roll and partial success over another. In the end a critical success resolved things with the player’s ship leaving nothing but wreckage behind. Fun stuff!

    This game was easy to prep for, and a blast to play. I think this is my new go-to game for one-shot sci-fi games or those going for a few sessions. The players certainly want more.

    And it has a fun art style that I found inspiring.

    So in Offworlders RPG you get a sci-fi rules like game that checks all the main boxes of the genre. And with a price tag of free? Yeah, this gets a 5 star rating.

    Adventurers! Revised 2Pages Edition

    Comparing this with other light RPGs and other 1 sheet RPGs, Adventurers! is more comprehensive overall. Slow character advancement and use of two dice should give a longer campaign than other games of this type.

    I’m comparing Adventurers! to Microlite 20 PocketMod, Nanolite6 Pocketmod, CRAM, and Dead Simple One-Page RPG. Each of these has significantly more crunch than say one page RPGs like, Lasers and Feelings, or Awesomesauce. While having three stats that are pretty much is the same as Warrior Rogue & Mage, both games are far apart on main mechanic and scope that I don’t think a fair comparison can be made.

    With Adventurers! you can mostly create the type of character you want from the get go but one of the rules nerfs beginning spellcasters. You can't buy the power skill at character creation so, by the rules, you can't create a beginning spellcaster. This is very odd.

    There are some translation/grammatical issues and I'm not talking about where word count has been obviously reduced for space.

    "Characters have by three Stats going from -1 to 5." How about: "Character Stats range from -1 to 5."

    With a product this short, there shouldn't be any issues like these. As I said, I'm not picking on the obvious word count cuttings but there are a few of these on each page.

    With any light rules game, there is going to be a lot of GM fiat. A few things that could use a little help would be: Encumbrance: Marking a few things as Heavy would be very helpful. What about critical successes matching critical defenses? Does defense win out? Probably. Arrows and crossbow bolts. Where are they? Or are we ignoring them?

    Where is the cool cover art image in my pdf? Not to be found. It would have made a nice insert for my gaming binder.

    There is a lot to like about this little game. Group attacks is a very good way of dealing with swarms. Quick, simple customizing monster add-ons is a great little no-brainer. Most games this short don't deal with cooperative rolls or strenuous tasks (Long Tasks) but this one does. The section, Personalizing the Game! is a great idea starter.

    So two sheets of paper and you have a game on four pages. Not bad. Not bad at all.

    If you are looking for a very short light RPG give Adventurers! a try. I’m giving it 4 stars for substance and completeness in such a small package but removing one for editing issues.

    Cover image still not in the zip file. Translation/grammatical issues still present. Even the one I pointed out. I don't think the new zip file was checked.
