KISS: Keep It Simple System

KISS: Keep It Simple System


This is the new, clarified, revised, reorganized and augmented system taking into account the valuable criticism from the initial free download. These rules contain a new Keeper's Section and a player character sheet including room for a narrative character back story.

Once again, I've done a revision based on a module I've written for the system. However, both are now in the hands of playtesters. I'm re-releasing the rules system, but I'll wait on the playtest results for the module.

The latest revision is now available. The playtesters enjoyed the system and the module that I sent. The module will be up before the end of the month.

A temporay discount can be had here:

The "Gamaster's Adventure Template" is doing well. Plenty have also dowloaded my free products. However, I'd like to point you to my other products. All have been reworked since the reviews were written to accomadate those critcisms. Both "A Day at the Races" and "Train in a Cup" are inexpensive little games good for an evening's entertainment. KISS™ was panned when I offered it as a free playtest download. It's been redone and should be given another chance. "The Quirtoin Affair" is my first module set in the land of Ert utilizing KISS™ mechanics, but it can be set in any world and played with any rules systems.

You really are assuming too much of your audience, as one of the other reviewers here mentioned. I understand your using dice scores to get the stats (in D&D the dice scores ARE the stats, and what you call stats are equivalent to D&Ds modifier [...]

First off, you need to spend a little time explaining the rationale behind what you're doing. Instead, the first thing we see is that confusing chart with absolutely no explanation of how it works, or what happens when you get a number that is NOT on [...]

Unfortunately, these rules are quite confusing, despite aiming for simplicity. I started to go "huh" as early as page 1 and the 7d6/7d4 chart. I am not sure what the 7d6 are for (action resolution, something about pips and apexes), but appare [...]

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.
