SCP The Tabletop Roleplaying game lets you take on the role of members of The Foundation to help Secure, Contain, and Protect various anomalies throughout the globe.

This book was successfully funded on Kickstarter in early 2021 and made over 1500% of the goal to fund its artwork and was written with an easy explanation of the ruleset first and foremost (see full-size preview pages for basic dice rules).  

Backers of the Kickstarter suggested what SCPs would be included in the book, which contains 20 pages of SCP content with original artwork, descriptions, and game statistics.

This is an 8.5x11 full-size book of 292 pages.  This book, some dice, and an optional deck of SCP Drama Cards (sold separately) are all that is required to play.


SCP The Tabletop RPG offers a unique (optional) Drama Card system that allows players to draw from a deck of 82 unique effects to keep your Director (GM) on their toes.  Effects range from rerolling an attribute check to rewriting your character's backstory!

Players begin with a Security Level, which not only determines what sensitive data they are allowed access to within the Foundation, but also what weapons they have access to, and what pages in the book they are given free access to read (Director's discretion).

Content relating to the SCP Foundation, including the SCP Foundation logo, is licensed under Creative Commons Sharealike 3.0 and all concepts originate from scp-wiki.net and its authors. 

Note from the author:  This has been one of the largest projects I've worked on in my lifetime.  I hope you give the system a chance and check it out!  The dice system and Drama Cards are very unique and fun to work with  The artwork is beautiful and amazing. 
Check back here soon for additional suppliments!  


(No additional expansions required)
(Uses standard 7-die set)

I love the game

BUT

"This is an 8.5x11 full-size book of 292 pages."

My pdf has 291, lacking a good illustrated cover page

seriously?

I find this lack of caring disturbing

I care! D': I had this "brilliant" idea that the table of contents would be best as the first page, since you can get there in one click to navigate the book easier, and then someone mentioned that they wanted the cover art, and I agree it would look nicer that way. But then after I added it, all the page numbering was off and the hyperlinks all got messed up! It was a nightmare! If you want to see the cover art (and some amazing others) check out artstation.com/jamesmaw

I am very interested in this, but I have a few questions before ordering it.
#1 Is there a starter adventure included, preferably with some pre-made characters, so you can start playing right away?
#2 Are the cards included in one of the book tiers or are they sold separately?
Best regards. Great that you actually made this!

One starter adventure is included. There are several pre-made NPC stats for general use.
Cards are sold separately (but are optional).
Hope you try it out!
I make games that I enjoy playing myself!

Heya!

I've always been interested in the SCP universe, but my current knowledge about any background lore is extremely limited.
Does the book provide a general description or summary of the universe, and perhaps any examples on what kind of stories you could run in the SCP universe?

As the pleb that I am, I am only familiar with the famous SCP containment breach games.
Are adventures always set in The Foundation with the players being a certain class of personel during a breach, or are other kinds of (non-breach related) also possible?

Thanks in advance for your reply!

Jason K August 13, 2021 8:15 pm UTC

Yes, the book helps those unfamiliar with the SCP universe understand the fundamentals, and it includes one starter adventure. The game gives Directors (GMs) the freedom to let the PCs be members of the Foundation, start off as D-Class, be civilians, or even SCPs. The game does not force a narrative.

Once I get my next pay check I am definitely purchasing a copy of this amazing game Artwork is incredible, the flexible character creation system is a gem, and always wanted to tell my own SCP story! Ever since SCP: Containment Breach as well as its' sister MMO known as Secret Laboratory I hoped to explore SCP as a D&D game one day, looks like that day's finally come! :)

Thanks, Jason for addressing the confusion over the pricing. I don't get a response from many game devs. So that's settled. Regarding the game. I spent a little time going over the dice mechanics. I really think I can work with this! My friends and I consider our games carefully. We understand the symbiotic relationship with the companies that make these games. (yes I went there!)
I respectfully don't play games made by toy companies. I think there are a lot of innovative things going on at the indy level. Perhaps this is a game we can all get behind. I like that the players had a big part in the creation of this game. That's encouraging.
Ok, I'm done here. I'll take this to SCP's discord!

Ok one last question, so will the Kickstarter products be of better quality than the print-on-demand products? Should I have just spent my $80 on the Kickstarter and done the $75 pledge instead of the print-on-demand product?

The Kickstarter ended in January. After the funding was obtained it went into fulfillment of Backers and artwork. This is the final result of all that work. Backers got the book (from Drivethu) , cards, and top donators got to choose what SCPs were included in the book. 20 SCPs in total were suggested and I commitioned new artwork for them.

I think that's really cool that you have the players helping create content that made it's way to the book. I mentioned a few times that I'm big on community. This game really scratches that itch.

I know I left 3 posts. The SCP game dev's and I are off to a rocky relationship. Which is a shame because I run 2 tables and can turn a good number of players to their game.

Drivethru increased the price of the Premium copies July 1st, and as a response I reduced the price from $75 down as much as I could, added the standard color option, and reduced the cost of the pdf. There was like a one hour period where the price was auto adjusted to $75.

man i really want to like this.. i guess i need to see it in play.. the dice system seems very complicated atleast more so than i would think it needs to be.. i do like the crunchiness of things and how deadly things can be.. but being different for the sake of being different seems a bit over the top.. this is just my initial reaction after getting through the first part of the book with character generation..

i can confidently say that the dice system is not "diffrent for the sake of being diffrent", it's very fun and intuitive after you get it. it's a more direct way of getting powerful vs increasing stats on a sheet. if you're interested to see how it plays, there's a play-by-play podcast called "SCP: BLACKFILES" on spotify, or you could join the discord server and play/see a few games played. hope this helps!

Looks really neat, but I have a couple of questions from looking at the dice system in the preview: First, if you can only roll up to 4 dice, is there a point to having the "5d8 and 2d10" that's in the first example? Second, it seems like the proficiency bonus is only useful in an opposed check, since it isn't a whole number. Does it help with other things as well?

need to see if they can put together a video to break it down.. leveling up stats i sorta get but then you add multiplacation to it.. i'm just wondering how much this bogs down play..
Customer avatar
Jason K June 29, 2021 12:06 am UTC

In order to buy a D10 you first need to have purchased D8's, so in the example of 5d8 and 2d10 the extra d8 unlock the ability to buy more d10s. The proficiency bonus is mostly useful in an opposed check, however there are critical success and critical failure rules that it applies in as well. Plus sometimes the Director could give you a difficulty of "12.3" sometimes. (such as the monsters AC rating is 12.3 to put it in D&D terms). Making a video that breaks it down is a great idea! I'll start working on that soon and will add it to the 26letterpublishing youtube channel.

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.
