What’s a Roguelike Dungeon?
A roguelike dungeon is an RPG computer game that creates a random dungeon every time you play it. All items are random drops, and usually must be used before you know what they do. The characters, items and monsters are usually represented by ASCII characters, making these games very popular in the early 80’s, as you didn’t need a powerful machine to run them.

So Rogue Risus…
...is a roguelike dungeon emulated by Tarot cards and Risus rules. You are a lone adventurer, attempting to get to the heart of the dungeon to retrieve the powerful Worldstone. Only the Worldstone can save you village from the curse that rots the land and makes the people ill. You must get down to the 20th level, get the Worldstone, and get out again in one piece.

What you’ll need to play

Printed out forms for monsters, potions, scrolls, wands and special items in this document
A pack of Tarot cards (can usually be found at most book stores, the Rider-Waite deck is preferred)
An opaque bag with identical tokens numbered 1 to 14

Your Character
Extra Shots – You begin the game with 5 extra shots. An Extra Shot may be used to add one die to any combat roll after the dice have all been rolled. Any number of Extra Shots can be used on one roll.

You start the game with 1 die in one of the following clichés –

Fighter
Fire mage
Ice mage
Lightning Mage

Fighters start with a sword and basic armor.
Mage clichés just start with a robe (counts as armor for them, but they cannot wear any other armor or wield any weapon found in the dungeon).
Mage clichés are pumpable, but aside from this, no other advanced options are used (no pumping the fighter cliché).

Each cliché also does a certain type of damage in combat -

Fighter – Physical
Fire Mage – Fire
Ice Mage – Ice
Lightning Mage – Electricity

Monsters may have resistance or weakness to a damage type. If they are resistant to the type of damage you are dealing, subtract a number equal to the total number of dice you rolled from your final roll (so if you rolled 3 dice, subtract 3 from your total roll). If they are weak against the damage type, add a number equal to the total number of dice you rolled to your final roll (so if you rolled 5 dice, add 5 to your total roll). With certain equipment items, you can become resistant against types of attacks as well – the monster rolls are reduced by the number of dice that they roll (so a Monster (4) that you are resistant against subtracts 4 from their roll).

Equipment
A Fighter has his 1 weapon and 1 suit of armor, and may equip 1 amulet and 2 rings
The Fighter’s weapon and armor bonus dice start at zero.
A Mage has his 1 robe (armor), and may equip 1 amulet, 2 rings and 1 special item
The Mage’s armor bonus dice start at zero.
If you get an equipment item type that you already have equipped, you must choose which one to keep.
Any class may carry any number of Potions, Scrolls and wands.
Potions, scrolls and wands are notated by the suit cards of the Tarot deck.
W = Wands, C = Cups, P = Pentacles
A = Ace, P = Page, Kn = Knight, Q= Queen, K = King
So, a 3 of cups is noted 3C under the potions list, while a Queen of Pentacles is noted as QP under the scrolls list.
All other equipment uses the Major Arcana (like Death, the Lovers, etc.) and should be notated by the card’s name. The Worldstone takes up no equipment spots.

Usable Items
When you get a usable item from exploration, you’ll write down how many you get next to the card designator in the item list on your character sheet. Potions and scrolls are always 1 per find, but wands are 3, due to having multiple charges on them. If you already have an item of that card, just add another to that item’s total (or 3 in case of wands). When you first use an item, the effect area will be blank. Pull a random token from the token bag, do what that number says for the item and write down the effect number by the item slot. Now, every time you get this item again, it does the same thing. If you pull a number that already is in the effect list for that item type, simply set it aside and draw again. Return all tokens to the bag after you’ve found out what the item does. Wands may be only used in combat, and can target either you or your opponent – choose BEFORE you find out the effect. Potions and scrolls may be used at any time, and can only target you. If an effect says Combat, this means for the whole next combat, or until the end of the current combat.

Starting the game
Separate The World card from the deck and lay it aside. Separate the suits from the major arcana cards and shuffle each of these separately. Put the Dungeon Level 1 monster roster in front of you. Deal out 25 of the suit cards face down into one pile – this represents the first level of the dungeon. You explore the dungeon by drawing a card from the level deck. Depending on what you draw you can either get a chance at gaining at item, or fight a monster. Put the cards aside after you deal with them. After you’ve draw 16 cards from the deck, you may choose to go down to the next level. If you don’t, you may keep drawing cards until you either run out of the 25 cards (in which case you must go to the next level), or you decide to go down to the next level. When you go to the next level, shuffle all the suit cards together again, draw 25 new suit cards for the dungeon level and put the next level dungeon monster roster in front of you.

Reaching level 20
When you reach level 20, put in The World card in the mix of 25 suit cards. If you draw The World, you get the Worldstone item and may attempt to escape from the dungeon. When you choose to escape, pull out all swords cards from the suit deck and shuffle them. You must now beat a monster from every level in the dungeon, starting with level 20. Draw a random sword card for each level, placing back in the deck when your done fighting. If you beat all levels worth of monsters, from 20 to 1, you win the game!

Exploring the dungeon
When you’re ready to explore, draw a card and place in face up in front of you. Then, follow the below instructions depending on the suit you drew.

Swords
Fight a monster. Look up the card on the current monster roster (if you drew the 8 of swords, look up 8S) and fight that enemy. If the enemy cliché level is ½, simply roll a die and divide by 2 (rounding up). Enemies with a ½ cliché are defeated when they lose it, just like a 1 die cliché character. Enemies will also have one of the 4 subtypes, abbreviated P for Physical, F for Fire, I for Ice or E for Electrical. After that, there will be any Resistances, Weaknesses and immunities that monster may have. If they have a weakness, it will have the letter of the attack and then the letter W (so fire weakness is FW). If they have a resistance, it will have the letter of the attack and then the letter R (so Ice Resistance is IR). If the monster has the word Item at the end of the entry, you draw one random major arcana equipment card after the battle, and then shuffle that major arcana card back in. If the monster beats you, you lose the game.
Experience -
If you kill a monster, mark off the next number on you Monsters Killed list, starting with 1. Every time you mark off a number with an exclamation point (!) by it, you gain 1 die in your cliché. You cannot go above 6 in your cliché (which is why the Monsters Killed list stops after 150, where you get your 6th die). You gain a die in your cliché after you kill 10, 30, 60, 100 and 150 monsters.

Cups
Roll one die. On a 5 or higher, fight a monster as if you had drawn a sword. After that battle, roll one die. On a 2 or more, you gain 1 potion in the slot for this card you drew. Potion effects are applied immediately when drunk.

Pentacles
Roll one die. On a 5 or higher, fight a monster as if you had drawn a sword. After that battle, roll one die. On a 3 or more, you gain 1 scroll in the slot for this card you drew.
Scroll effects are applied immediately when cast.

Wands
Roll one die. On a 5 or higher, fight a monster as if you had drawn a sword. After that battle, roll one die. On a 4 or more, you gain 3 wand charges in the slot for this card you drew.

When you roll a 5 or higher to see if you battle for a card draw that is not a sword, you always resolve the battle before you roll for the item - you can't get the item from a cup, pentacle or wand draw before you resolve the battle (if there is one).

Some effects can raise or lower your weapon or armor cliché. Your weapon and armor can never go below -1, and may never rise above +3. These bonuses and penalties are the number of extra (or less) dice you roll in combat. If you get a -1 enchanted armor or weapon, and you only have 1 die in your cliché, you divide your roll results by 2. If you get a -1 enchanted armor AND weapon, and you only have 1 die in your cliché, you divide your roll results by 3.

Resting
Before you draw a card, you may choose to rest. Roll one die – on a 2 or higher, you heal one die in your cliché. If you roll a 1 instead, you must immediately draw the next exploration card, you do not heal and any roll to see if you fight a monster counts as a six. You may attempt to rest only once between each exploration card draw.

Go and explore, adventurer
That’s all the rules you need to know the play Rogue Risus. Everything else is devoted to item lists, monster descriptions, the character sheet and the quick rules sheet. If you got this setting from an online website, it’s strongly advised that you copy and paste the item lists and monster rosters into a word processor before printing. Other than that, enjoy Rogue Risus! If you have any questions or comments, please email them to dsuptic@gmail.com

Quick Sheet
25 cards per dungeon level, Must have drawn 16 to go to next level.
Add The World Card on level 20.
If you get the world, beat a random monster from level 20 to 1 to win.

-Sword-
Fight a monster!
-Cup-
5+, fight a monster
2+, get 1 potion
-Pentacle-
5+, fight a monster
3+, get 1 scroll
-Wands-
5+, fight a monster
4+, get a wand w/ 3 charges

Resting
Once before exploration, roll 2+ to heal a die in your cliché
Otherwise, immediately draw the next card - monster roll counts as a six

Monster Stuff
If they have a ½ as their cliché level, roll the die and divide the result by 2 (rounded up)
P – Physical, F – Fire, I – Ice, E - Electrical
PR – Physical Resist, FR – Fire Resist, IR – Ice Resist, ER – Electrical Resist
PW – Physical Weak, FW – Fire Weak, IW – Ice Weak, EW – Electrical Weak

Resistance and Weakness
If they are resistant to the type of damage you are dealing, subtract a number equal to the total number of dice you rolled from your final roll.
If they are weak to the type of damage you are dealing, add a number equal to the total number of dice you rolled to your final roll.

Equipment
Mages carry no weapon.
Fighters cannot carry special items (specifically, the Jester’s Cap, Magic Staff, and Ice Crown major Arcana items).
If you get a -1 enchanted armor or weapon, and you only have 1 die in your cliché, you divide your roll result by 2 (rounded up).
If you get a -1 enchanted armor AND weapon, and you only have 1 die in your cliché, you divide your roll result by 3(rounded up).

Usable Items
Potions and scrolls can be used anytime, and only target you.
Wands can only be used in combat and target either you or the opponent – choose who you target BEFORE you find out the effect.
