Title: Free D&D Style RPG?

Does anyone know of an pen paper and dice RPG online that I could download the rules for for free? Kind like how Magic the Gathering lets you download their rulebook online for free. So does anyone know?

Is this like a *cough* illegal *cough* version of DND?

Well, its most if not all of the books published, so yes. Personally I'd only use it as a resource for online games and in addition to the core books for pen and paper ones (as in, using the occasional extra feat or spell from one of these books, but still having paper copies of the main ones). Its up to you if you want to use it or not, but I certainly wouldn't print it all out...
Edit: Alternatively I point you towards this
, which is all the open game licence material for the D20 system. Hasn't got everything, but its all legal.

No where near most. Probably scratching about 1/8th or so...

Excluding other editions and non wizards stuff I'm unaware of anything missing...

I've seen more books in my local games shop. There's the Star Wars stuff, not to mention the Diableries. Plenty of other D&D Stuff (all of which have WOTC mark on).

Star Wars =/= D&D Darmort... and I've never come across any Diableries for D&D

Just because its WotC doesn't mean its D&D. Hell, Pokemon cards used to be WotC. Are you saying they're D&D too now, D?

The books I refer to are D&D. Or, in so much as they use the D20 system which as far as I'm concerned is D&D. If there's a D20 Rule Book for Pokémon somewhere, that'll be D&D. Really depends on how you define D&D, but D20 = D&D.

Personally, I see D&D as a game that runs on the d20 system. I consider D&D, Star wars etc different. Dungeons and Dragons is exactly that: an RPG based on the d20 system that runs in a fantasy setting, where players explore dungeons and fight dragons. Star Wars is another RPG that runs on the d20 system, but is about wars in space. They both run on the same system, and, granted, D&D is the cornerstone of the d20 system, however I don't see Star Wars as being a part of D&D, more both D&D and Star Wars being a part of the d20 system; they're just put into D&D context in the books because that is the most common usage of the rules.
