PINKHACK, put simply, is my personal collection of houserules put forth for (mis)use and cannibalization. I named it “PINKHACK” because it is a melange of Christian Mehrstam’s Whitehack and Chris McDowall’s Into the Odd (which is red), but also mostly because I very much like the color pink. The rules presented here are mere suggestions; there are no permissions granted or withheld, only inspirations. Everyone uses the system they are most comfortable with, anyways.

The contents of this document, much like the contents of the Universe, are mostly lies.

What's In This Document?

  • A lightweight, easy-to-run OSR d20+d6 roleplaying system based largely on rulings 
  • A quick character generation system
  • Simplified combat rules
  • A quick & easy reference document for UNCONQUERED, INTO THE BLACK, and other PINKHACK games

Anyone may publish free or commercial material based upon and/or declaring compatibility with PINKHACK without express written permission from the publisher, Monkey's Paw Games, as long as they adhere to the following terms:

If your product declares compatibility with PINKHACK, you must state the following in your legal text and on any websites from which a commercial product is sold: “[product name] is an independent production by [publisher name] and is not affiliated with Monkey's Paw Games.”

Monkey's Paw Games takes no responsibility for any legal claims against your product.

The mechanics of PINKHACK may be reused freely.

Be cool: I don’t have lawyers.

Love it!

is the game supposed to be an apub file or pdf?


Good catch! I accidentally uploaded the afpub instead of the PDF - just fixed!


Hey, your system looks cool! 

One question, the rules seem to have two conflicting methods of determining a PC's Will. First, it says, "roll 3d6, keeping the highest two results for your Will." Immediately after, it says, "choose your archetype. You archetype determines your Will."

Is Will determined by rolling attributes or by selecting an archetype?

Hey! Yeah so the attribute should be 'Skill' and not 'Will' ; updated version has that changed for clarification! Thanks 


Hi... FYI the last image on this page has a typo. It should be "degradation". All the best with your game!
