This total-adventure rules set is the newly-revised gateway to the PlainLabel Game System for roleplaying enthusiasts. It contains complete easy-to-master character creation, task resolution, and combat rules plus plenty of optional extras. Even more important, however, are the extensive notes on adventure design, campaign development and gamemaster technique which are useful to both novice and experienced gamemasters alike!
You also get quick reference sheets with the most commonly referenced data and important tables for use before and during play! Reproduce extra copies of these for your players as needed, so they always have the material they need right at their fingertips! Included with these sheets is an easy-to-use flowchart of the character creation rules, which provides everything you need for setting up a new character. Use it with the included Character Sheet, and making your new character is a breeze!
Best of all, the Simply Roleplaying! V 2.0 Core Rules are FREE for you to download. Also, you can create and publish your own expansions, scenarios, etc. for the Simply Roleplaying! Core Rules under the FREE PlainLabel Limited Trademark License! That means there will be lots of fan-produced material to play with, as well as commercial expansions, adventures and other material from MicroTactix and other companies.
The system will also be supported by MicroTactix with Genre Expansion Sets (Simply Fantastic!, Simply Superhuman!, Simply Stellar!, etc.) which add specific rules information as well as general background concepts and gamemaster guidance for important general adventure genres. MicroTactix World Packs will provide specific, complete game world environments for play, including plenty of gamemaster guidance and adventure seeds for campaign play.

"Simply Roleplaying! is probably the most well-designed electronic-only game I`ve ever encountered..."(It) has raised the bar considerably for future downloadable games...
"...An RPG that costs less than two issues of most paper magazines but provides ten times as much insight for the inexperienced GM is a definite winner in my book."

--Steven Marsh, PYRAMID

Simply Role playing reminds me of products I may have seen in the hobby shop during my earlier gaming years (1980s). It would have been one of the cool low profile books that you were glad you picked up before someone else did. [...]

This is an excellent RPG system! It is currently my favorite system beating DnD 20. Why? It's simple and logical but not brainless. Easy to expand and convert. Heck.. It's even FREE! If I knew this system was this good. I would have bought it. B [...]

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.
