Description Edit | History

Author's Description:

Nickel & Dime is the RPG to play when you are asked, "What's a roleplaying game?"

Roleplayers are sometimes asked about their hobby. Not every day, but it happens often enough that it’s handy to be able to give a five-minute demonstration that will hopefully pique the inquirer's interest for more.

Nickel & Dime is just that: a demo game that’s a tiny example (just two pages!) of a traditional RPG. Each genre includes two five-minute encounters: run one, it's a nickel. Run them both, it's a dime!

To play, you need two coins of different values. In these rules, the lesser value coin is called a nickel (5¢) and the greater a dime (10¢), but any two values will do.

Nickel & Dime is available in different genres. Pick one appropriate to the inquirer who is about to play the game. The front page is the same in each instance of Nickel & Dime, but page two is genre specific.

0 Nickel & Dime: Epub version of four genres in one file
This epub file contains the first four genres published in Nickel & Dime: Robin Hood, Pirates, Pulp, and Space Opera. The format makes it very easy to carry on a tablet or ereader, but frankly the author thinks the individual PDFs are easier to read. And he apologizes for the amateurish layout.
