Doctors and Daleks 5e: Player's Guide


A New Companion for Your Adventures through all of Space and Time

The wild adventures of everyone’s favourite Time Lord come to the world’s most popular roleplaying game in Doctors and Daleks. Take your gaming group into the TARDIS and travel anywhere, anywhen. Want to meet Leornado da Vinci? Or see what life is like in the year 3,000? What about another planet entirely? All of space and time is your Venusian macro-oyster, but keep your wits about you — there’s a lot of danger in the vastness of eternity. 

The Doctors and Daleks Player’s Guide includes: 

  • Streamlined character creation rules to quickly bring to life a new time travelling adventurer. Create a new Companion for the Doctor, or build your own Time Lord! Do you want to do a bit of time tourism as part of Team TARDIS? Or will you create a group of Time Agents to fight back against pesky paradoxes?  

  • Rules for playing fast-paced, combat-light sci-fi adventures using the world’s most popular roleplaying game system. Fight like the Doctor with non-lethal weapons, manoeuvres, gadgets, and the power of emotional and logical arguments — or just run away really fast! 

  • A time traveller's treasure trove of technological marvels, including sonic screwdrivers, psychic paper, and time machines. 

  • Rules for using and customising the TARDIS, as well as creating and piloting any other kind of time travel device to adventure from the dawn of history to the very ends of the universe. 

  • Advice on making every Doctors and Daleks adventure feel like you’re living in an episode of the legendary Doctor Who TV series.

  • An expansive look at the history of the Doctor’s Universe, detailing many of the aliens and creatures the Doctor has encountered across space and time, including profiles for Daleks, Cybermen, Weeping Angels, and a host of other aliens and oddities ready to be played!

There are two David Tennants on the new cover.

Also, while I understand making sure this line is distinct from the other Doctor WHO RPG, the original cover was much nicer to look at. Shrinking the image makes it feel too crowded, maybe?

There are two David Tennant Doctors, that's why! :D

The new design is ugly as hell, and puts again Tennant front-and-center. Is that the version that goes into offset printing? Please tell me, it is not.

21st Century Doctor Who and Fifth Edition D&D rules are a perfect match: where the Companions generally get superpowers, all damage gets healed after a good night's rest and Intelligence becomes the dump stat.

Using 5e rules, which are about to be overturned for 6e.

Rather than the system with all the pre-existing source material Cubicle 7 already had and fans had unofficially filled in non-TV extended universe source material for. For FREE.

Based on OGL1.0a which Wizards of the Coast tried desperately to annul.

In a setting where Gallifrey has been destroyed for the HowManyTimesNowth time.

And once again it seems like there are only two Time Lords left in the universe unless you count "Cyber Time Lords" but who cares, it's not as if they can damage the PCs having Plot Points and Plot Dice. And "cantrip quips" and "emotional arguments" right up there with the Power Of Love overwhelming James Corden's Cyber-conditioning....See more

Is there any possibility of a Print Book being released, or is the PDF the limit?

Doctor Who with 5e rules...what to say... I don't want to be close-minded so I'm still curious about it but I'm not sure this is the right ruleset for Doctor Who mood.

I know! It's a genre that is almost exclusively non-combat using a system that is almost exclusively combat.

Is this self contained, or will it require the 5E Core books?

All you need is the free Basic Rules or the System Reference Document

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.
