Description Edit | History

Sherpa is a role-playing game to play while hiking in the mountains, strolling in a park or along the beach, sitting by a pool or lake, rafting lazily down a river, waiting in a long line, as a passenger in a car, on a space station, etc. In other words, you can play Sherpa in situations in which another RPG would be awkward to run.

In Sherpa the GM uses a digital stopwatch instead of dice, and a character sheet fits on the back a business card.

Sherpa is a freeform game for experienced RPG gamemasters only. (Novice players are fine.)

Sherpa is complete in a 24 p. booklet, 8.5" by 5.5" (22x14 cm). It is intended for any genre and comes with 22 sample characters (including a complete ready-to-run fantasy party) and over 35 sample Professions - many more are possible.

More Information Edit | History

The first edition of Sherpa was actually called "PHASER". Alert readers may notice the titles are anagrams of each other. That's because there are six traits in the game: Profession, Experience, Reason, Agility, Strength, and Health. That's the preferred order, but PERASH makes a lousy game name.

At any rate, the first edition had a very limited print run and more than a few problems.

6 Sherpa Bunnies & Burrows characters
Here are eight possible PC characters and two NPCs. These are based on the Bunnies I run in Fudge (most of which were based on my GURPS Bunnies, most of which were based on my original B&B characters ...), except I've since dropped Moonwood in Fudge and replaced him with Nimble. Moonwood was a little too dense ... These were made to be printed on Avery Business cards (#5371, I think, or maybe 8371 - they may be the same). If you do it right, Comfrey's herb list will appear on the back of Comfrey's card.
