Videogames? What are those?

If you prefer the old-fashioned way of gaming, then this may be the solution for you. To celebrate last week’s launch of Desperados 3, THQ Nordic has teamed up with Pegasus Games to create a pen and paper version of the popular franchise.

The Official Desperados Pen & Paper RPG (it rolls off the tongue) is available to download right now. And it’s completely free.

The free download comprises of an illustrated rulebook in PDF form and some printable resources – character sheets, maps and tokens.

Playing an RPG on pen and paper is quite a different experience from playing on your PC or console. You’ll need to gather some friends first and foremost. This doesn’t have to be in person; online streaming services like Zoom make it easier than ever to play tabletop RPGs remotely. In fact, we’ve got you covered with this handy how-to.

If you fancy giving the Official Desperados Pen & Paper RPG a go yourself, you can download it for free from Drive Thru RPG.
