OneDice Steampunk!

Steampunk CoverHot on the heels of the (already!) critically acclaimed OneDice Universal comes our first OneDice genrebook – Steampunk!

OneDice Steampunk is a game of Victorian science fiction adventure in a world on the brink of war and revolution. Aerial steam carriages streak across the skies, steamtanks rumble along the ground, and the automatons keep the factories moving.

Whether you want to play steampunk games in a world of your own devising, or adventure in the ready-made alternate 19th century described within, all the rules you need are in this book.

There are additional “skins” for adding Gothic Horror, Lost Worlds, automaton and child Adventurers to your games. Grab a copy of OneDice Universal and you could also add magic, spaceships or superheroes!

Whether you’re a lordly Have or a poverty-stricken Have Not, all you need is a stiff upper lip and a pair of goggles and the sky’s the limit!

Suitable for ages 10+

Available now in PDF, and in print in a couple of weeks!


OneDice is here!


2014-07-29 14.11.54Cakebread & Walton, award-winning RPG designers of Abney Park’s Airship Pirates, Clockwork & Chivalry, Renaissance, Dark Streets and Pirates & Dragons, are proud to announce a new product line for 2014 – the OneDice system.

There are times when you’ve got a really cool idea for a role-playing session, but can’t quite find the system to fit the bill. You want something quick and easy, that you can put together on the back on an envelope. Or perhaps you’ve got an epic idea for a multi-genre campaign involving cyber-cowboys and a flying city inhabited by ninja dwarves and steampunk woodland animals. (Well, you might!). Or you’ve promised to run a game, only have half any hour to prepare and have no ideas.

This is where OneDice comes in. OneDice is a quick and easy role-playing game for any genre. Our first release, OneDice Universal, is a compact, art-free, rulebook designed to let you create and run characters in any setting. It comes with three ready-made “skins” – brief extra rules – for fantasy (including magic), superheroes (including powers and weaknesses) and space (including starship combat). And all this is crammed into 56 pages, for the pocket-money price of $7.99!

We’ll be following this up with a series of “genrebooks” and “worldbooks” Genrebooks will each cover rules for a different genre; Steampunk is already in the works, with Cyberpunk on its heels. Each small book will include the core rules, adapted for the genre, together with some ready-made campaign background skins and adventure seeds. Worldbooks will develop a particular setting; a OneDice version of our Pirates & Dragons RPG is in the pipeline, together with Floodland, barbarian adventures in post-apocalypse Britain. All will contain some art, and some worldbooks will be in colour. Again, they will contain the core rules, so that each book stands alone. And again, they’ll be small books at pocket-money prices. Pick one up and you’ve got enough to run a game in no time – pick up a few, and you’ll soon be mixing genres and coming up with weird and wonderful ideas which might never otherwise have occurred to you.

How does the system work? Characters have three attributes: Strong, Clever and Quick. Some might also have Magic. They also have a bunch of skills. Add together attribute and skill, roll a D6, add that, and try and beat the target number or the opponent’s roll. The rest is just variations on the theme. Character generation takes about five minutes.

The game books are suitable for age 10+, so there’s no better time to get your kids into role-playing!

What are you waiting for? Pick up OneDice Universal today, and prepare to run Wizards and Superheroes in the Alpha Centauri Wars!
