Description Edit | History

From the back cover:

Alma Mater is a role-playing game in which players may choose to be either a Jock, Cheerleader, Tough, Brain, Criminal, Average, or Loser. Their challenge is to successfully live as a teenager through four years of modern day American high school. However, play is not restricted to school. The game rules cover nearly every aspect of teenage life, including sports, social situations, fights, and hot rods.

In Alma Mater, you can act out your wildest fantasies and do anything that you would normally consider exceptionally foolish, suicidal, or down-right crazy.

This 48-page rule booklet, illustrated by Erol Otus and Owen Oulton, contains a description of the high school, "Central High" including NPC teacher and student descriptions; and a sample scenario, "Starr's Party". Maps for the school and Starr's home are provided along with a 17x22" color poster of the cover painted by Erol Otus.

Six-sided and twenty-sided dice are required for play, and must be bought separately.

WARNING:
This game deals with mature subject matter and is not suitable for children under 14 years of age.

2 Alma Mater - Official Character Sheet
A scan of the original character sheet - both sides. Probably should have uploaded this before my custom one...! ;)

3 AM Custom Report Card_Character Sheet
This is a customised character record sheet, inspired by the layout of late 90s report cards. This was tailored for my home game, hence the different attribute names. The Ego box was for a new rule I implemented, and it is my intent to post a selection of homebrewed material at some point in the near future. The space at the top left corner is intended for a school crest. The Academic Standards section is meant as a quick reference for calculating standard assessments - filled in to the abilities of the individual character, and modified by any conditions set by the SchoolMaster. I found it helped streamline that side of the game immensely. This sheet was made entirely from scratch by myself. I hope others might like, and get some use out of, it.
