Free OSR RPG - RuneQuest Essentials PDF (Free RPG Day Alternative Picks - Post II)

As is my usual, I try to find some free RPGs in PDF to highlight for folks that don't have a FLGS participating in Free RPG Day. Or maybe you're like me and just not all that impressed with this years offerings.

This time I'm highlighting RuneQuest Essentials, the stripped down version of RuneQuest 6. RuneQuest was one of the early alternatives to Dungeons & Dragons and has gone through nearly as many versions as D&D. BTW, I may call RuneQuest Essentials "stripped down" but it still comes in at over 200 pages for the PDF.

The full version of the RuneQuest 6 rules are 40% off this weekend only, but certainly grab the Essentials version. Can't beat the price.


  1. Yoink! I do appreciate this, Erik. I am the hinterlands when it comes to FLGS. Thank you!

    1. got more coming - it should be a busy posting weekend ;)

  2. I'm glad you do this. There are a couple of game stores I could drive to but it's more an issue of not having any time to do it as I have two little kids to take care of. I get to a game store about twice a year. Maybe. If I'm lucky. And then I'm usually disappointed by the lack of diversity in merchandise.
