An Open License RPG

Age of Exploration is an open license RPG system, similar to award-winning games like Blades in the Dark  and MÖRK BORG . You can create your own materials based on or compatible with Age of Exploration.

Spells and Items

Make custom magic items, forge new pieces of armor, or even create all new spell schools



Do you want to add more options, invent new classes, or create a new game based on our rules? We allow it.

  • Card-based: Every spell, weapon, and item has its own card - combat moves fast because players can see what their available choices are right in front of them.

  • Noble-Bright: Action takes place in tactically rich outdoors scenes, not cramped dungeon corridors. 

  • Rules-Light: Everything players need fits on a 2 page Quickstart Guide. Whether it's your first time leading an RPG or you're a veteran DM introducing role playing to the next generation, learning to play is a snap. 

  • Open-License: meaning you can write and publish your own adventures, and even sell them!

  • Free-Forever: The Print and Play will always be free.
