Renaissance - D100 black powder SRD

Our group has just started a campaign of Clockwork and Chivalry. We're having a great time with it. Great setting, loving the alternate history magic systems and its an excellent interpretation of the D100 system. There's just enough crunch to make some interesting combat decisions and the skill rules get out of the way of the RP.

I can't afford the full blown rules for C&C at the moment, but I highly recommend these free rules. There's a ton of content here, basically all the rules you need short of the proper background to the game. There's a decent set of magic rules which are only missing the clockwork stuff.

This is a great resource for free, hats off to Messrs Cakebread and Walton. I will be buying the full rules as soon as the bank manager lets me.

A supplement fully compatible with RuneQuest and Legend, Renaissance uses a setting contemporaneous with the Renaissance period in Europe.

This document is the SRD for the game, and contains complete rules to run the game, from character generation to equipment lists, game engine, combat mechanic and two forms of magic - alchemy and witchcraft.

Set in the Age of Black Powder and sail, you create characters who are of their age - drawing from recognisable social backgrounds ranging from peasants through to the middle classes, all the way up to the gentry and nobility. Professions, from Agitator and Alchemist through Journalists (yes, really, you can play a middle class journalist in this game!) to the likes of Watchman and Witch, are covered.

The setting feels familiar - more contemporary than other Basic Roleplaying-style settings, with black powder weapons, recognisable institutions such as Oxford University and things like currencies in Pounds, Shillings and Pence rather than Silver Pieces and Copper Pieces.

In its feel, the setting and game feel strongly like a similar game, White Wolf's old game Mage: the Sorcerer's Crusade, which was set in a similar time of progress and adventure.

You can use the SRD on its own, port the setting whole cloth into Legend or simply poach the Alchemy and black powder rules for your Legend game. Ditto, you can bring in the Divine Magic rules from Legend and have your Renaissance witch characters dedicate POW in literal Pacts with deadly infernal forces. In any case, I highly commend this useful document.

This product looks like a nice homebrew. It presents a complete, albeit bland rules package that works for the period represented, or even in earlier or later times. They might have sold it for money, but this is probably better to reach a bigger audience.
The basic rules are a bit clunky and should be more streamlined. I like the selection of skills, though and it covers all the basics. Spells are not so much what I would have been looking for in a renaissance game, but for GMs that do like it, they might run with the system presented, although I would recommend expanding the spells a bit.
Overal its pretty much ok, with nice examples and good writing. The system would benefit from a well written campaign guide and source books.
