A different game every issue!
Minigame is a PDF magazine written and published by Valent Games. The idea is to create one roleplaying game each month: not a long one, not one with tremendous depth and detail, but a good one. One that you could pick up and play in one night, but which has enough replay value to stick around for a whole campaign. Each issue will be about 40 pages long.
Our current issue is Permafrost, a d20 supplement packed with new core classes. Permafrost isn't quite part of the usual Minigame series, but we've put it on this page just to have a place to keep it.
Our previous issues are, in order of appearance:
- The Undying Lands, wherein ordinary people from our world find themselves in a faerie realm (and not today's watered-down, sugar-coated fairy tails, either!). It's our first completely original minigame, with a ruleset that's easy to learn and complements the setting well. The cover art can be seen below.
- The Other Side, where players take on the role of D&D's stereotypical bad guys: orcs, goblins, ogres, lizardfolk, and a half-dozen other goblinoid weirdoes. A d20 game, requiring the PHB to play.
- the Book of Guilds, a politically charged campaign setting where mundane knowledge becomes magical power. Another d20 offering.
- Mutatis Mutandis, a Superlink supplement for a world where everyone has superpowers.
