Chaosium has just announced the release of its Universal Game Engine, which is now available for personal and commercial use under the Open RPG Creative (ORC) license. This means that users can utilize the engine to create their own games and scenarios, without worrying about royalties or licensing fees.
The Basic Roleplaying: Universal Game Engine is a comprehensive guide to the BRP system, which powers some of the most popular tabletop roleplaying games on the market today, including Call of Cthulhu, RuneQuest, Pendragon, and Rivers of London. The engine includes mechanics for magic, psychic powers, mutations, superpowers, weapons, equipment, and vehicles that can be applied to any setting and genre, making it incredibly versatile and adaptable.
What makes the Basic Roleplaying: Universal Game Engine so exciting is its ability to be used in both personal and commercial projects, without any licensing fees or royalties. This means that game developers and creators can use the engine to create their own games, scenarios, and even books to sell. With the freedom to create, explore, and play, the possibilities are endless.
For those who prefer a physical version of the engine, Chaosium has got you covered. When you purchase the PDF version of the engine, you will receive a discount coupon that can be used towards the purchase of the physical book, which will be available at a later date.
