Hi, and welcome to Gurbintroll Games.
Gurbintroll Games is a small independent trade imprint under which I – “Blacky the Blackball” – publish my role-playing games.
Gurbintroll Games is a strictly non-commercial endeavour. All the games published through this imprint are available for free (in the case of electronic formats) or at a nominal price (in the case of physical books). Each game is a labour of love, written for the pleasure of writing and playing it rather than for money.
Currently, Gurbintroll Games has the following games available:
- Blood, Guts & Glory – A gritty mash-up of two fantasy games.
- Codename: Spandex – A retro-clone of a British 1980’s super hero game.
- Cthangband – A roguelike computer game.
- Dark Dungeons – A retro-clone of a classic edition of the world’s best selling fantasy game.
- Darker Dungeons – A modified version of Dark Dungeons which unifies the mechanics, making it a less faithful clone but a simpler game to play.
- FASERIP – A retro-clone of a classic four-colour super hero game.
- Masks – A mash-up of a classic four-colour super hero game with more modern narrative elements.
- The Immortals Companion – A supplement for the fifth edition of a popular game, containing updated versions of various rule sets from earlier editions.
Most of the Gurbintroll Games publications are (or will shortly be) available through DriveThruRPG.
Additionally, Gurbintroll Games has a number of “extras” – smaller unofficial supplements for existing games – that can be downloaded directly from this site.
