A society of Unlikely Gentlemen (download)
1895. Five years ago, the city of Atlantis rose from the depths of the ocean. At the same time, several portals appeared on Earth and allowed safe passage to Venus and Mars. Within the next year Atlantis opened diplomatic relations with almost every nation on Earth. Railways were built to allow travel to Mars and Venus through the Atlantean portals. Scientific marvels pop-up everywhere, four-armed martian ambassadors walk the streets of London while Venusian amazons guide big game hunters through the jungles of their planet. Empires still scheme and fight among themselves, looking for new technologies to gain the advantage over their rivals.

You will play adventurers and explorers, always looking for new scientific discoveries, uncharted territories or lost treasure, to quench their thirst of knowledge, fortune and fame. Just bring 2D6 per player and you are ready to go !


Shell Shock (download)
 Shell Shock has been awarded the best 2010 Alternative RPG award by the French Roleplaying Games Federation.
Runner up for the 2008 best free indie rpg award 

Shell Shock puts you in the role of young recruits sent to the frontlines. Facing the hardships of military life and war they will have to make tough choices to survive.
Shell Shock is a set of rules which will allow you to tell the stories of these soldiers. There are no predetermined setting. You can tell the stories of US soldiers confronted to the horrors of the Korean war or the lives of guerilla fighters on the Polar front of the Mars independance war of 2135. Whatever the setting, the question remains the same : how far will they go to survive ?

The Hard Way ! (download)
 Once upon a time there was a small contest at the Storygames forum : Write a game based on a category of exploitation or grindhouse movies in (about) the next two weeks. Entries are due by the end of the Halloween weekend. I'm happy to say I won the contest with this entry, heavily inspired by John Carpenter's Escape from New York and David Cronenberg's Scanners.
