Pegasus Engine CORE RPG – For free…

Become The Hero You Were Born To Be

I started out with the vision to provide a free roleplaying game that has been created to the highest standard with amazing artwork etc at an affordable cost.

I also wanted those rules to be available for free for everyone to use for their personal use. (Sorry no open source licence organised for this yet!)

FREE Pegasus Engine CORE rules was last updated: 19th January 2022

So from here onwards I will develop a structure of pages that will provide you with:

  • All produced rules for free.
  • Video tutorials on how things work.
  • Extra Examples and FAQ’s
  • Adventures
  • Special Member Only Previews of Works in Progress. (These will then become available to the public once completed several months to a year down the line.)
