Sticks & Stones - The Free RPG


     "Sticks & Stones - The Free RPG" is now available to playtest. Drawing from over 20 years of tabletop experience and influenced by RPG favorites such as Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 edition, Marvel Superheroes (SAGA) and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Players' Option: Skills & Powers, is a game where one is only limited by their own creativity. The best part is, that the e-book is free to the public (Physical copies are subject to manufacturing costs, but still cheaper than local copy stores).
     Sticks & Stones features an improve-as-you-go experience system. No more downtime leveling up characters or being restricted to a class system. Whatever your character spends the most time doing is where they'll improve. Races are fully customizable through a easy-to-follow point buy system that can create uncountable combinations. The common-sense combat rules include weapon speeds, simultaneous character and monster actions in given combat cycles, stamina system to account for wide usage of powerful abilities and fighting techniques. Magick is fully customizable with traits designed to put the affect and effect of each spell into the hands of the player and so much more. For Storytellers, everything is streamlined to allow for improvised monster, treasure, traps and other challenges without having too much down time.
     This game is still in its play-testing phase but holds approximately 220 pages worth of content. Sticks & Stones is seeking your help with balancing, art and content contributions.

basically it was too complicated. Having to build characters from the ground up juggling hundreds of points to build just the character's body as every detail had to be paid for. I just gave up before I even got to the main body of rules. [...]

A fairly good shell of a game if you want to get away from hack-and-slash. Mechanics have the feel of GURPS crossed with Powers & Perils, i.e., there is some complexity to it with lots of formulas to keep track of stats. I'm not sure if that's go [...]

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.
