Basically Maze Rats with a dusting of Tunnel Goons and a large spoonful of Basic Dungeons, but stripped back to fit on a double-sided A5 sheet, sped up for one-shots/picnics, and adjusted for playing with a single giant foam d12.  

Includes pre-rolled characters, a spell generator, stat suggestions for creatures and NPCs, and an adventure builder.

Check out this lovely review of Big Bone at A Phantom Funeral!

New: a PDF of little character sheets, if you like.

NEWER: HTML version is available here.

If you prefer to play with 2d6, try Little Bones.

This is neat! You’ve managed to fit a lot in. I particularly like the Adventure Builder.

Just curious: is there a rough timeframe for when this can be updated?  Just so I can make a note to check back a week or so later.


Boop, updated. Thank you for your interest!

Oooh lovey update! 😍 Time to re-print 😜


This is a great idea. A fun concept to bring TTRPGs out of the basement and in front of folks who may not otherwise play them. Can't wait for the final version.
