Some of you may be familiar with the Pendulum Roleplaying game, participating in a session or two during the Gathering of the Juggalos 2001 and 2002. The feedback was tremendous and the demand for a complete system, playable by all, was so great that it was obvious that it had to be made available for all to enjoy. So here it is: the Pendulum's Promise Roleplaying Game, written and created by Jumpsteady!

Based off of the earlier streamlined version of the game seen at the Gatherings, this version uses the D20 system (popularized by Wizards of the Coast and, specifically, Dungeons and Dragons), ensuring solid game mechanics and an ease of play for even the greenest of gamers.

If you've never heard of the Pendulum Roleplaying game, it is based on the Pendulum comic book series and takes the core concepts and ideas of the Dark Carnival , providing a playing environment specifically suited to Juggalos.

Never played a RPG before? Give it a try! It's just like any other type of game except it relies more on your imagination then getting to Boardwalk or clicking a button to shoot the alien. Plus it provides hours of fun for you and your homies with nearly limitless possibilities.

If you're a Juggalo that's totally down with the gaming tactics, then this is definately the RPG you've been waiting for all of your life!

You can download the game for free beneath. You can fully immerse yourself into the Dark Carnival saga... as if you were the main character in your own comic book or movie!
