Things that don't fit in the other categories.

  • Troika from Melsonian Arts Council is a perfect example of quirky space fantasy. It's not got a whole lot of random tables but it is a simple system for trying Space Fantasy RPGs. It uses random tables for character concept / profession, spells, monster mien, and anywhere else it matters.
  • From Bastionland Press is Electric Bastionland, an RPG with an old school feel with a healthy dose of random tables in chargen. You have a failed career and colossal debt...
  • For an rpg of "Star & Sorcery" space opera with an OSR feel, there is Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells from Old Skull Publishing. With a heavy dose of random tables to help things along.
