Risus is far more than an emergency tool: it's a flexible, simple and tactical system which manages to strip the RPG genre from all its dangly bits and leave only the innermost mechanical skeleton. Effectively, all other RPGs work on the same basis as Risus: set a difficulty, roll to succeed. What Risus does best is doing so easily, quiclky and with unparalleled elegance. You can hack this system and modify it as you see fit for all occasions and still have tons of fun.

give it a shot, it's worth it.

I found this system to be rudimentary and foundational. This is a breath of fresh air among the complicated systems that seem to be everywhere.

What are you left with after you strip away all the familar parts of an RPG? Fun.

You run, not walk, through a Risus game. Full speed, non-stop, gaming. Without the need to reference charts and tables, without arguments over nuanced interpretation of rules, without expectation of what a character should be.The only thing left is the game.

Play the game.

Risus is the game that opened up my eyes to the world of RPGs. Before this I had only experienced systems like D&D and WoD. While I won't say anything against the afforementioned systems, I don't ever plan to go back to them if I can help it. Risus is an all-inclusive system for gamers who like spending more time on the role play, and less time in the number crunch. Play Risus! It's free!

Tight, easy to learn, free and also quite funny. Risus is the perfect platform for some beer and pretzels gaming fun.

Best little rules set there is. Easy to learn, easy to teach, fun to play. Simple enough to remember when drinking. Flexible enough to cover pretty much every genre ( at once ).

Risus is a great game to have handy for those nights when everyone is too burned out, tired, or drunk to wade through a dozen rule books to generate characters. Keep it around for a quick, silly blow-off game after a long campaign.

It quick, easy, silly, and generally good fun.

The scary part is it has a logic to it: It makes sense despite the light and humorous style of the rules.

I love it.

Simple as crazy. Total flexibility. Damage cuts your ability to do things. Why should a guy with 90% of his hit points gone fight at full ability?
