Dimensions is a rules-light role-playing game designed to get a session up and running in minutes. Its features:

  • Players don't need to stat out their characters before play.

  • Dice and other randomizers can be introduced slowly.

  • The system is friendly to new role-players.

This release includes PDF, Mobi, ePub, and azw3 releases for all major eReaders.

Here are the basics of the game:

Each character is made up of Dimensions (a catchphrase encapsulating an important facet of the character). Each Dimension has 1 to 3 points; total of 7.

In a conflict, define the conflict's type and stakes. Choose a Dimension that fits the conflict. Each participant rolls Fudge dice and adds them to the appropriate Dimension (if no Dimension is appropriate, add zero). The highest result wins; ties are won by the player's character.

A conflict's winner achieves his or her stakes, while the loser takes a negative ongoing condition (like hurt). Win by 3 or more and take a positive condition (like scary).

For blow-by-blow conflicts, do the same every round for each combattant. If you lose a round, remove one point from that Dimension for the rest of the conflict. If a Dimension drops to zero points, you lose the conflict.

Invoke a Dimension to immediately win a conflict and take a positive condition. You can invoke a Dimension once per point per session.

Great playing earns a bennie, which can be spent to re-roll Fudge dice.

Even better, the rules include player advice, GM advice, example Dimensions for 5 different genres (gritty film noir, space opera, traditional epic fantasy with elves and stuff, cyberpunk, and superheroes), and 4 sample magic systems.

Wonderful game. Harkens back to RISUS: The Anything Game, but (in the opinion of this player) much more playable. Have been dying to dig out my Fudge Dice and play a system without all the complexity of the deluge of FATE systems on the market. The DIM [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
