Necromunda is a sprawling, evolving game, and has had a lot of rules published since this verison came out in 2017.

These rules vary across publications, and some even contradict each other. This is where the community has stepped in, and created compilations to keep the game playable.

These abridged rules were created and compiled by Necrodamus, so all credit goes to them for creatiing such a mightly tomb. This version is largely unopinionated, acting as an abridgement. For a grungier take on Necromunda, try out their custom ruleset, Bookromunda. This site has been created with their approval.

The goal of this website is to make the rules easier and more accessible, so Necromunda can reach a wider audience.
