A Discordian is theoretically a member of The Discordian Society. And according to the Principia Discordia, "The Discordian Society has no definition."

So with that out of the way, here are a bunch of games that have either been specifically written for followers of Eris, are appropriate games for those who love discord, or make extensive references to Discordianism in their mechanisms or settings.


Or if you would really like to know more, Wikipedia has an article on Discordianism that you may find helpful. Suffice it to say that it surely cannot be a coincidence that "Discordia" is an anagram of "Do acid, sir"...




As is standard for these recommendation geeklists, please add your own suggestions. If you are going to add something, please add the highest level relevant object. So if the complete [Family] is relevant, add that; or else if the entire [RPG] is relevant, add the RPG; otherwise if the [Setting] or [Series] is relevant, add that; or failing those you can add the individual [RPG Item] itself.

The creator of this geeklist reserves the right to change the order of items in the list according to what he feels is most appropriate, starting with the best recommendations.

The mechanisms for this game revolve around the Law of Fives, and the setting is that you are a Discordian Double Agent attempting to infiltrate and undo powerful conspiracies. The text itself is an homage to the style of the Principia Discordia.

In reverence to the Lady Eris, the author originally released this game for free on 5/5/2005. And in keeping to the principle of All Rights Reversed, he encouraged free distribution of the content of that release. Therefore you can download a copy for yourself right here on RPGG.

The later commercial release of this RPG has extensive modifications. So if you like the free version, you might also consider having a look at the capitalist version.

Risus: The Anything RPG is a light RPG system that allows for quick playing, describing itself as a Universal Comedy System. Hence it is the perfect vehicle for creating a Discordian RPG without developing a new system.

The Wholey Book of Clichés and Cabbages is exactly that: Discordianism for Risus. The rules (such as they are: "All rules in this supplement (and in reality, for that matter) are subject to change by any Meta-Technician.") cover all kinds of Discodians in all kinds of situations. The simplicity of the system allows for a wide variety of play styles with little in the way of pesky structure to reign in the chaos.

The text, again very much in the style of the Principia Discordia, is freely available on the blog of a Discordian sect called the 23 Apples of Eris.

This is another redecoration of Risus: The Anything RPG, a light RPG system that allows for quick playing, describing itself as a Universal Comedy System.

As opposed to The Wholey Book of Clichés and Cabbages (listed above) this text is little more than a list of character ideas and and adventure ideas. Still, that kind of list is useful to someone looking to run a Discordian RPG.

According to its description here on RPGG, this very much sounds like a Discordian RPG. But sadly there are very little details about it, and no linked RPG items. So we'll just shove it here towards the end of the list as a footnote until it receives some love.

By their name you might detect a certain Erisian vibe. And you'd be right! However their published RPGs, whilst often chaotic, are not what I would necessarily label as having particularly Discordian mechanics or settings (their other games are a different matter though).

Still, they are interesting works in and of themselves, and are all available for free from the publisher's website.
