ROLF: The Rollplaying Game of Big Dumb Fighters


When you just want to beat up on your friends without actually hurting them, ROLF! is the game to turn to. With quick character generation and a fast-moving combat system, it's a silly little game that puts the die-rolling in roll-playing games. With this game, you really get what you pay for!

Designed by Steve Miller (formerly of West End Games, TSR and a few other bankrupt RPG publishers) and L.L. Hundal (formerly of nowhere, because she's much too smart to enter game design on a professional level), this is the perfect game to pass the time while waiting for late-comers to arrive for the RPG session... or while you've been kicked out of the room, because the GM and another player or two are engaged in some secretive, story-based roleplaying nonsense.


Don't miss Something About Hats: A Free ROLF! rules expansion.

The writing in this is clear, and light hearted. A little bit edgy, in a humorous manner. The funny does not lessen the strength of the rule system. Simple enough you could use it to play anything, and enough crunch that it can handle anything you want [...]

Yep, it's a "rollplaying game." I've heard an awful lot about rollplaying and how terrible of a thing it is, so I was surprised to come across a game that is all about the ill-aligned practice. ROLF is a beer and pretzel's game about [...]

ROLF seems fairly good for the price (£0.95). While most RPGs I've played make no bias on gender with attributes, this game does (surprisingly). The 3 attributes are Brawn, Body & Brains. Brawn & Body are the same for male & female, [...]

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.
