We like itch.io. As an indie publisher, it’s a welcome use of easy point-and-click tools to create a customized webstore that (in our near future) can be embedded right on your site. That’s why we’re happy to launch our BRG Summer Sale from now until July 1st, 2019.
We were once a beautiful world, young and fertile. Nothing but hope and opportunity lay before us. We were the chosen ones of our creators and lived a lavish lifestyle. Until the All-Father revealed his jealousy of the love his children gave to their creation and not him. His wrath nearly wiped us out. Now we are the enslaved and oppressed in the Five Cities, or those risking it all in the Wastes. But there are some who call no place home. They wander between all places and live by their own rules. Will any of them rise up to become the mysterious heroes we need
Broken Ruler Games is pleased to announce the release of the High Plains Samurai Roleplaying Game‘s core rulebook in softcover, print-on-demand, and PDF. After six years of development, this high-octane action story game of gunslingers, samurai, barbarians, gangsters, and steampunk in a post-apocalyptic world of superpowers is ready to challenge your Writers with everything you need to start telling original stories in the One Land.
After a successful Kickstarter in 2017, HPS has already gone on to receive a Gold ENnie for High Plains Samurai: Legends as Best Free Game of 2017. With the new core rulebook, you’ll be able to run all the one-shots and campaigns you desire in this improvisational storytelling game where the dice determine complications, not success or failure.
With the HPS core rulebook, you get…

You can discover more about HPS at highplainssamurai.com, including the Atlas of the One Land, our ongoing series of actual play recordings, additional advice from the game’s creator, and so much more. The High Plains Samurai Roleplaying Game is available now at DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, Amazon, and will soon be available through IndiePressRevolution.
As we prepare for the full launch of the High Plains Samurai Roleplaying Game, tales of intrepid heroes fighting back against tyranny have already begun to spread. Wanderers riding the Salvation tell of a lone warrior defending his favourite bar from a local gang seeking access to the tunnel running under Serenity Falls.
Tales From The One Land is a series of actual play recordings (both audio and video) revealing the action-packed excitement of HPS. Each session provides new players creating their own personal exploits with original characters and improvised storytelling to reveal one shared version of the One Land… a kind of HPS cinematic universe. For our first release, Todd and Vince (editor on HPS) sit down for a Session 0 to create a lead character, discuss the mechanics of the game, lay down some formats, and create some key initiatives. Enjoy and keep your eye on the High Plains Samurai website for future instalments.
