ScreenPlay_Rehearsal_cover_7x10_1p1

Voting is now open for this year’s ENnie awards and that means you can vote for ScreenPlay: The Rehearsal Edition as 2016’s Best Free Game. Sure, there’s plenty of other great games in every other category and you could probably go ahead and vote in those categories too but everyone here at BRG is concerned with only one game in one category. #totalhonesty

If you haven’t done so yet, you can learn more about ScreenPlay: The Rehearsal Edition on the official page and download your free copy of the game too.

ennies2016nominee

ScreenPlay_Rehearsal_cover_7x10_1p1The 2016 ENnie Award nominations are out and we are honoured to share space with some damn fine products. Earlier today, ScreenPlay: The Rehearsal Edition (a public playtest draft of the completed and now available ScreenPlay core rules) received a nomination for Best Free Game. And that means polls will be open from July 11th to the 21st.

To mark this occasion and allow everyone an opportunity to discover ScreenPlay: The Rehearsal Edition for the first time, you can download it for free (though the playtest remains closed seeing as… well, you know, it’s finished) and learn more about the playtesting process right here on brokenrulergames.net

Huge thanks to the judges for this nomination and we look forward to figuring out how we’re going to be at the ENnies this year.

Become One of the Blessed or the Damned with a New Free Supplement for Ironbound

Ironbound_BlessedDamned_700x1000_June2016Character creation can be intimidating when you’re starting out on a new game and sometimes you need to simply open up a book and use pre-generated friends and enemies to keep the story going. Not to fear, ScreenPlayers, as we’ve just released a free bonus supplement for Ironbound called The Blessed and the Damned.

A collection of 19 pre-generated characters, including five lead characters of the Penitents, the very Ironbound unit featured in our play-by-post playtest tale featured on the ScreenPlayers Guild community on Google+. Witches, warlocks, allies, soldiers, undead, and more can be found quick and ready for your own tale. Available now on RPGNow and DriveThruRPG. 

It’s Not Real Until It’s In Print! ScreenPlay Softcover POD Only $9.99

Hey, ScreenPlayers. Warden here. I mean, Todd. Sheesh, still takes getting used to not using that name anymore. Anywho, I wanted to make this announcement extra personal because as someone who used to work as a press operator I’m very fond on physical books. Call them old-fashioned relics slowly going the way of the dodo, but there’s nothing like holding paper in hand and flipping through with the greatest of ease.

That’s why I’m very happy to announce ScreenPlay is now available in print through DriveThruRPG’s print on demand program. And the best part is the cost: only $9.99 US for 92 pages of full colour, full bleed, full ScreenPlay sweetness. This also covers a free PDF of the game if you’ve been sitting on the fence to keep you busy until that beautiful softcover addition to your gaming shelf arrives.

Click here to buy your copy from DriveThruRPG or here to get it from RPGNow. There’s more big news for the future of ScreenPlay on the way – stay tuned! Check out these preview photos in the meantime (and let’s give a big round of applause to my publisher, Aaron Huss, for the fantastic hand modelling).
