No Dice: Diceless Role-Playing Game System


No Dice Role-Playing Game System

This is a rules-lite Role-playing game designed to play wiht no dice.  Instead, it uses a Narration based Keyword system to overcome challenges.  The game system is designed to be played in-person or over text based mediums like Emails, Play-by-Post, or other Social Media platforms.  

No Dice had the following design goals: 

  • Setting and genre agnostic
  • Do not use dice!
  • Be story driven first
  • Foster teamwork
  • Drive creative story-telling
  • Use a Narrator to make rulings
  • Only tool needed is a Character Sheet

The game comes with a character sheet, quick play guide, and a starting Story to play.

How does the diceless system work? Is it like the old Amber diceless rpg? Is there some other mechanic for resolving conflicts?

Easy, each Character is composed of Keywords, which are rather broad descriptions based on a Character's Past, Present, and Interests. When there is a challenge, the players work together to link their keywords together and narrate against the challenge. If they can link enough key words over and above the Target of the challenge, the challenge is overcome. If they can not, then they have to narrate a new direction to the story.

That is the broad outline. Of course, the rules have a few twists here and there on this process. However, it is a highly text-based, story-driven, and character focused approach that encourages teamwork and collaboration from the players.

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.
