SpeedRune is a rules-lite ancient world fantasy game inspired by Sledgehammer.

  • Make a character in moments; everything you need is on a single sheet of paper. Then you just roll d100 under your skills or use powerful rune magic.
  • GM assistance inspired by OSR and PbtA principles; the GM never rolls, freeing them up to move the story forward and create exciting consequences to player action.
  • Go on one adventure per season, then spend time back in your community, increasing its prosperity, bolstering it against attacks, and earning adventuring benefits from your ties back home.
  • A seasonal campaign structure with prompts and GM resources. Start small in spring, then watch consequences ripple until a climax in Storm Season.
  • Venture into myth itself! Go on transcendent heroquests to remake the world and cement your views into reality.

SpeedRune is free and always will be! But if you decide to pay money for it, that'll go toward paying artists and making print versions.
