Simple-RPG: An Easy-Peasy Role-Playing Game System

Watermarked PDF

Simple-RPG, the Easy-Peasy Role-Playing Game System is now available!

Three six-sided dice, this book, the included character sheet, a pencil and 10-minutes total set-up time. That's all you need to run and play Simple-RPG, the newest, easy-peasiest role-playing game system on the market. No levels, no stats; only skills, creativity, and sheer acting quality will matter in this sans-framework system.

Characters receive basic and Psi-Power skills, fixed health and 'Psi-Health' levels, and a pool of points to bump their abilities at creation. The storyteller can avoid messy, cumbersome or clumsy game-mechanics, maps, diagrams, pie-charts, statistics blocks, paper accordion-men and other paraphernalia, and focus on a truly intoxicating story of deep-immersion, while the players can method-act a personality, rather than just grumble over sets of modifiers and buff-items.

All you need to know to run or play a game of Simple-RPG is contained in fourteen pages of content (not including the covers and credits). Oh!, but those fourteen pages give you a game that is so easy to run, so smooth to play, that you'll think it's printed on astral silk (or digital angel-food-cake).

You control the action. You control the story. You control the fun. That's Simple-RPG!

Softcover coming soon. Latest version, v1.5, published on Friday, 26th October 2012.

Simple-RPG Description & Premise

Simple-RPG is designed to permit a storyteller to weave a tale with as few as one player or as many as he can handle, without cumbersome mechanics, piles of skills to track, or munchkin-y levels to achieve. A character in Simple-RPG is an assortment of basic and broad-category skills with the prime details of detail filled-in by the player, both before and during play. The game is designed for people who enjoy interactive storytelling, can method-act, or come up with details on the spot; or any pleasant mixture of the three.

Background elements and personality take the forefront in this system, rather than hit points or magical energy pools. Everyone is born equal, and improvement is slight, applying only to skill bumps from usage and special gifts from your storyteller.

Simple-RPG is designed so that you can create a character in under five minutes, and thereafter role-play a personality, rather than spending countless hours making something that is fine-tuned for a highly-detailed and extravagant RPG system and role-playing numbers and bonuses. It is in complete contrast to the Zoria RPG and Epiphany RPG, gaming systems, and is as plain-Jane as can be, chucking aside nasty impediments like rules and frameworks in favour of the simple joy of the game.

Simple-RPG requires three six-sided dice to play. A Character Record Sheet is included in the book.

Note: The page count of 14-pages denotes genuine content. It does not include the covers, title pages, and dedication pages.

Original electronic
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.
