System-Neutral

toolkits for any game, setting, or genre

We publish a bestselling line of system-neutral creative aids for all tabletop roleplayers. System neutral means these books were not written for one specific rules set, genre, or setting, allowing you to adapt and apply them to the roleplaying system of your choice. Each volume focuses on one aspect of roleplaying, like character development, worldbuilding, or adventure design.

Lightspress Media is a tabletop roleplaying company with a lo-fi approach. Utility of content takes precedence over ostentatious production value. Graphic elements should enhance the message and not act as page filler and eye candy. Physical books need to be compact, portable, and sturdy. This minimalist aesthetic results in powerful toolkits that are both useful and affordable. After all, tabletop roleplaying isn’t the book. It is the creativity and collaboration that takes place around the tabletop. Our mission is to give you as much as you need, then get out of your way.
