Crimson Dragon Slayer
Retro-roleplaying somewhere between awesome and god-awful!
Venger As'Nas Satanis
It'll make you feel like an adolescent watching a Conan knockoff on VHS!
Basically, this is my own contribution to the OSR / fantasy heartbreaker genere of paper & pencil roleplaying games. It's heavily inspired by the 1980's. The parts of it that are god-awful are god-awful on purpose (mostly). Your adventuring party might contain a robot ranger with laser sword, infernal elf wizard with machine guns, and crystalline / pixie fairy princess hybrid tooling around in a Mel Gibson interceptor... looking for cyber crowns, magic swords, and bodacious bimbos. Can you bring Lord Varkon down before his crimson dragons rip Thule a new butthole? Terrible ideas made flesh! [don't judge me]
So, what's in it? A self-contained system that's not d20, yet mostly compatible with the original fantasy roleplaying game and all the clones published since. You roll multiple d6s, the higher the better, relying on improvisation more than defacto results. There are several classes and many races to choose from. Also, strange yet eerily familar spells, magic items, monsters, and the mother of all name generators!
If all goes well, it will be like pretending you're a wizard or warrior in the backyard waving a stick around as if it was a staff or sword... put a tattered red sweater-vest on the dog, maybe he can be the dragon.
There's also an introductory adventure at the end.
