STALKER - The SciFi Roleplaying Game


In memoriam: Boris Strugatsky (1933-2012)

In the Zones, the laws of nature have gone insane. Deadly anomalies defy logic and reason. Monsters roam the streets of dead cities and the bones of the fallen crack beneath your feet. No one knows what really happened, nor do they really care. The World wants the Zones closed off, walled in and forgotten. The governments were only too happy to oblige and gave them away to the Institute.

The Institute answers to no one.

The borderlands between our world and the Zones are now lawless frontiers where the Institute wields absolute power. Zone refugees are hunted like animals. Scientists experiment on human captives. Criminal activity of every kind flourishes in the shadow of the border, well and truly beyond the reach of law.

Even in the Zones, there are things that people want. Things that promise the impossible; infinite energy, the cure for all ailments, or the power to rewrite fate. Leaders, businessmen and generals would kill to get their hands on them, or to keep from the hands of others. Which is why you are here. Looter. Criminal. Stalker.

If you come back with swag – it’s a miracle

If you come back alive – it’s a success

If the patrol bullets miss you – it’s luck

And as for anything else – that’s fate

Stalker - the SciFi Roleplaying Game is the one and only true "Stalker" roleplaying game, based on the novel Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky but brought to the modern times and modern audiences. The Finnish-language original was released in 2008 to rave reviews. The leading daily newspaper named it as one of the top culture events of the year. Years of insistence by hardcore fans lead to it being translated into English and now here we are.

STALKER RPG is published with the permission and license from Boris Strugatsky, who will also be receiving royalties for every copy sold. This makes it the only official "Stalker" roleplaying game out there and your support to a literary genius is highly appreciated.

STALKER RPG uses an innovative diceless game system called FLOW that emphasizes player participation, role immersion and the use of rules as a catalyst to great roleplaying moments. You can find us on Facebook at StalkerRPG

Hey, I would love to hear more feedback from people who've played this game a little longer using the flow rules. Is there anything like a discord a forum or something? If not, I would also be glad to read more about it here.

Also I will continue to say: Best Diceless rules in the whole of tabletop gaming.

Are there any plans to make "scenarios" or published "adventures"?

Will there be a print version anytime soon?
I would rather see this in Paper form.

Fantastic, fantastic game. Even if you don't plan to use the game system buy it just for the world alone. So many aspects of it feel like a sequel to Roadside Picnic.
That being said it has probably the best diceless system I have yet seen for a game of this kind, but you can easily replace it with anything else like Savage Worlds.

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.
