A different kinda hex crawl

Hollow Earth Expedition - or HEX for short - is an absolutely cracking RPG if you feel like punching Nazis in the face and feeding them to dinosaurs while defending your buddies with death rays at the center of the Earth.

The Ubiquity game system is a simple and clever binary dice system (evens=yes, odds=no, did you get enough yeses to succeed?) that runs very smoothly, and the core setting is supported with several beautiful sourcebooks — Secrets of the Surface World, Mysteries of the Hollow Earth, and the soon-to-be-released Revelations of Mars (c'mon dammit, publish it!?!) as well as some free adventures.

You can tell I like it, enough to go all out and design a Character Passport booklet. You can download it here.

The 10 page PDF is impaginated and will fit each spread on both A4 and US Letter sized paper, but will need a decent scalpel, metal edged ruler, stapler and quality printer to create. I found that printing it scaled down to 80% of the original size worked best. 

So yeah, go try HEX.

Your fists will thank you for it.


  1. HEX is totally aces, and Dr Rotwang! says so.

  2. You think you'd ever run this on G+? I have a copy, but have never played it.

  3. I am very tempted, but getting the time to do so is gonna be tough. Heck I haven't even played a ConstantCon game yet, let alone run one! (And yes, Dr Rotwang, you can play too).

  4. thanks for the great work on the Passport! it's a great GREAT thing. :D
