BRP Regelwerk als *.pdf

Der Autor

Wenn ich nicht gerade spiele verunstalte ich Medien. Kommt einem zu Gute bei eigenen Rollenspielen wie Malmsturm oder Projekten wie Ratten!, Savage Worlds Gentlemens Edition, Scion, Sundered Skies und ein paar anderen. An und für sich bin ich der Erzählonkel, daher auch die große liebe zu FATE. Manchmal muss es aber auch ein Burger statt Steak sein und so wird gern und oft auch Savage Worlds oder wenn es klasisch sein soll Pathfinder und Konsorten gespielt. Ich probier gern und oft Systeme aus aber die eigentliche Leidenschaft sind die Hintergrundwelten.

Initial M

it dem Veröffentlichungstermin Mai wurde es dann nichts für Chaosiums Neuauflage Ihres Klassikers Basic Roleplaying kurz BRP dafür verspätet sich das Buch nicht all zusehr und kann vorbestellt oder für ganz hibbelige als *.pdf geordert werden. Allerdings bietet Chaosium nicht nur das Regelwerk an sondern ebenfalls weitere Spielhilfen. Angepeilt ist nun Ende Juni. Im Originalzitat steht:


A number of customers have asked that we allow BRP pre-orders. We usually accept orders only when we know an item is shipping from the printer or supplier. In this instance we will allow it a bit early.

REMEMBER: These orders will ship on or before (approximately) June 23rd. Any items included on these orders will be shipped at the same time. We will issue a newsletter heralding the book’s arrival.

Was das Regelwerk beinhaltet kann hier nachgelesen werden. Im Zuge dieser Veröffentlichung findet ebenfalls ein Abenteuer Wettbewerb statt. Dazu heißt es:

BRP Adventure Contest
You Can Win Some Easy Chaosium Swag.

To celebrate the launch of our Basic Roleplaying system we’re running a BRP adventure contest. Winning entries will be published as part of a future BRP Adventure Monograph. The winning authors will receive two copies of this monograph, a Chaosium T-shirt, and a mystery prize. Don’t ask me about the mystery prize. I don’t know what it is yet. Perhaps I’m just being evasive. Maybe it all depends upon what our latest release is at the time prizes ship out. Maybe it’s Schrodinger’s cat. Write a good adventure and you’ll eventually find out.

Since most of you don’t have a copy of the rules yet, the deadline will be July 31st, 2008. You can start writing your adventure before you have the rules of course. The stats and special rules can be added in later. Start writing!

Contest Rules
Each entry must be an original BRP adventure between 5,000 – 7,000 words. Text files or word documents only. Don’t submit PDF’s, quark files, etc. Don’t worry, 5,000 words is much shorter than it sounds!

Entries must be turned in before August first, 2008.

One entry per individual.

Adventures can be set in any genre you desire (except Call of Cthulhu/Lovecraftian) so long as the adventure is original.

Adventures must utilize Chaosium’s BRP system and no other game system.

All winning entries become the property of Chaosium Inc. All entrants will be contacted by us to let them know whether or not their entry was chosen as a winner.

All entries must be in English.

Any images or maps that accompany your adventure must be copyright free. Art isn’t required.

Entries must be emailed to

Entries must be submitted along with your name, email address, preferred T-shirt size, and and shipping address.

In the unlikely event that we don’t receive enough winning entries to print the BRP adventure monograph, the winners will instead receive copies of all the winning adventures as well as one copy of a different monograph.

Chaosium reserves the right to change these rules as often as we like, with no warning. You can count on the fact that we probably will. Come to think of it, maybe we have already. It’s best not to dwell on these things.
