Grave is a soulslike RPG built on the rules for Knave, built to be compatible with a range of old-school fantasy adventure games . Adaptations to Knave include ready-made "backgrounds" with starting stat arrays and gear packages, stamina rules for more involved stunts and more frequent spell use, rules for routine death and resurrection, 60 spells, and 50 magic items, among other adjustments. Like Knave, it is available as both a PDF and as a Microsoft Word document with free fonts, making it easier to hack for your own purposes.

One of the best Knave hacks/breakers out there. Evocative stuff right down in the mechanics!


Itch.io gives me options to delete, report, and ban this comment, but not to give it a million little heart icons, which is what I would prefer to do. Thank you.

This is the first time I've seen item sizes described using the capacity of a mouth.


Then feast your eyes on where I stole it from: The GLOG!
