As well as Five Leagues from the Borderland (a great game) there is, from the same stable, Five Parsecs from Home. A very similar system of story campaign and tabletop fight. I'm currently enjoying both.

In case anybody doesn't realise from the name, Five Parsecs is a Sci-Fi game rather than a Fantasy one.


I've just started a Five Leagues campaign and am loving it.

Guess we can add Battle System's "Maladum", a dungeon-themed miniature skirmish based on the SF Core Space rules!

A really enjoyable skirmish ruleset. Manages to get a lot into a small package.

Stumbled upon something else last week called MANY AGES

https://www.wargamevault.com/product/429814/Many-Ages

This looks fairly simple, in a good way, but still manages to have a substantial list of weapons and armour types with various modifiers. Building a warband couldn't be simpler, as you simply choose your troop type (infantry/archer/cavalry) and load them up with the appropriate gear.

No real provision for monsters or special races (at this stage), but the author has produced some free supplements that add some additional content, such as spellcasters.

This is the ruleset I'm now planning to use for my 54mm project, as it ticks all the boxes of what I want.

For any interested parties, I just released an advanced edition of the monster hunting game, Nightwatch.
Emphasizing cooperative play with a Game Master, Blood and Bone is a stand-alone rule set.

You can find a print version at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Nightwatch-Blood-Bone-Patrick-Todoroff/dp/B0CMZGWQML
The PDF at Wargame Vault: https://www.wargamevault.com/product/458841/Nightwatch-Blood-and-Bone?src=hottest

Thanks.
