Charm Roleplaying Game

Imagine a role playing game where you can sit down at anytime, with anyone and just play. You pull a character sheet out of your wallet, use a rolling app on your phone and get to it.  Everyone already knows all the rules and those that don’t, learn them immediately.

Charm is a universal tabletop Role Playing Game that uses a simple, yet versatile rule set. The rules can be learned in minutes and offer a fully immersive game experience. A character can fit on a sheet as small as a business card.

Charm uses our intuition about a scenario to help drive the game with a focus on role playing. The game allows characters to be built so they are good at what they do. This allows each player to have a unique experience and have confidence when making decisions.
Charm includes 7 short scenarios that demononstrate how to modify the existing simple ruleset to create a new play experience.

  •  Dustbound: Take on the role of a god-touched  gunslinger in a bleak world of dust and decay. Fight Oni, rival gunslingers and vengeful townsfolk.
  •  Mystery Incorporated: Jeepers, guys.  Play as a gang of kids, or possibly a lovable pet, who solve mysteries using their astonishing meddling abilities.
  •  Pact of Night: Small town woes meet big  monster drama. Play a Vampire or Werewolf as you balance your life with the humans during the day and beasts at night.
  •  Onitech: You exist in a high-tech world ruled by  demon masters. Civility has superseded morality, leading to a perverted and deadly state of affairs.

Playtester Feedback

"My favorite thing about the Charm 26 system is the flexibility to create a uniquely diverse range of characters and settings. The game is easily adaptable to any story with minimal effort and zero loss of functionality. A fantastic system for new players and old pros alike. Charm 26 is very streamlined and creates a role playing experience with minimal interruptions to dig through hundreds of pages of rules while still allowing the players to create any character they can dream up." - Jeff Lyons

"I can only speak to a player perspective, but Charm is a very easy game to learn and start playing right away. Character creation is very straightforward, limited only by your creativity and the setting you choose to play, and if you aren't feeling creative on the spot there are lots of helpful examples in the book for aspects and archetypes to inspire you or choose from. Gameplay is very simple as well; the limited set of action types means there's only so many resolution mechanics to internalize, and the aspect mechanics allow for players to pick and choose which checks outcomes are important to them, giving them additional agency over their story. Ultimately the system provides a group a very simple ruleset that can be quickly and easily adapted to whatever setting or story you'd like." - Nathan Shaw

"My favorite thing about Charm26 is it's simple rules that favor meaningful choices over crunching numbers. This allows the rules to be easily adapted to multiple scenarios and the game has more than enough there to support a near endless amount of genres and game styles." - Alan Berlett

So, after that one shot. I'm definitely giving this game my seal of approval (Which is worth nothing but there you go.) It's very good at what it does, and for a low-crunch generalized system it's right in that sweet spot where the game could be tricked out with additional features and the players would be still able to follow along. Great for a GM that likes to take and mess with a system until it does what they want it to.

I have a question about advancing in power levels. When a character advances to the next tier and they reset to level 1 in the new tier, does that impact their aspect scores? Following the standard rules for levelling, it looks like a character that advances from Mundane (PL1) to Heightened (PL3) would have 13 Aspects ranging from 14 Activation Points down to 1. Am I reading that correctly, or do the aspects reset to 3 rated at 4-3-2? Thanks!

Typo on the third paragraph before the list (simple). Game looks interesting. Do you have any reviews or comments from playtesters?

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.
