A downloadable volatile sci-fi RPG

Download NowName your own price

Parabola is a one-page tabletop RPG about sci-fi action, with quick, simple, narrative-focused rules that double up on information and let you cut to the action. You'll need some friends and a handful of six-sided dice to play.

Wield the four fundamental forces of the universe — gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces — as you explore a metallic world of adventure and danger, combining manifold dice rolls with narrative beats and skills.

To do cool stuff like shoot laser guns or warp gravity, you must Act. To withstand bad stuff like explosions or despair, you must React. To learn new stuff like Lore and Disciplines, you must Advance.

The system is easily hackable and receptive to modification. Check back here soon for an SRD if you want to create your own Parabolic RPG.
