Swords & Six-Siders


Swords & Six-Siders (S&SS) is an ultra rules-lite fantasy roleplaying game inspired by the earliest of tabletop RPGs (0E, BX, and T&T). Unlike typical OSR (Old School Renaissance) games, it relies on a single six-sided die (1d6) and single, expanding monster stat (plus any special abilities), making gameplay quick and easy. It is great for both new roleplayers and old-schoolers alike who are looking to get more gaming done in less time. Includes Player's and Gamemaster's sections. 

A compatibility license is now available from Precis Intermedia, so that you can publish your own Swords & Six-Siders supplements.

Add the Swords & Six-Siders Companion for optional rules, new classes, traps, and more monsters -- or -- check out the Expanded Edition.

Also check out Lasers & Six-Siders, the fully-compatible sci-fi version.

So happy to see the game is still going, with growing support. I have a soft spot for the 2013 version with clerics! I have all the rules I need on a 3x5, a small note book, pencil, and a d6 and me and my kids are ready to go! Love the simplicity of the system!

Thanks. Maybe try your hand at your own Cleric class for this version if the Myrmidon is not for you.

I'm working on a small companion booklet, which adds Clerics.

I just realized that I never updated you on this. The Companion book includes the Cleric class and Pathfinder class.

Thank you for the response! Yes, I have had a chance to get the Companion Book, and am really pleased with what you and Steve have created. The traps were just what I was looking for, and the monsters having preferences of who they attack first adds to the combat/encounter. The new classes are a lot of fun, and the material on followers and strongholds gives enough to add to the play with out going crazy with tables and fluff. Love the work you have done. Swords & Six-Siders was, and continues to be exactly what I am looking for in a TTRPG.

It's great to see this game up here for all to see. Those of us who have known about this gem are very excited to see new life breathed into it. Steve Robinson has created a wonderful little game and Brett Bernstein has done us all proud by taking on the editorship.

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.
