INDEX CARD RPG Core 2E

Quick review: Index Card RPG is brilliant. I've thought D&D 5e was as clean and streamlined a tabletop system as you could get, but I was wrong. Some highlights: -Truly self-contained. No marketing BS here: everything you need is in this product; settings, monsters, encounter design. What took WotC ~5-600+ pages Runehammer Games gets done in less than 150.

  • No derivative maths.
  • Banana-scale movement. Instead of watching hours of Master Ferinale on his YouTube channel just get this ruleset. Everything he has ever suggested, discussed, or shown in his videos is distilled into this pocket-size wonder. But still go watch his videos at Drunkens & Dragons. They're amazing.

This is amazing.

Light set of rules that make sense, two Setting Primers within - one fantasy, one sci-fi -, a LOT of advices for GMing and Encounter Building that is not restricted to the system (as most of the rules in there - easily adaptable to any system IMO), new monsters and the rare monster-making advice make this an amazing GM tool.

Focusing on the story and enjoyment rather than long bookeeping, this delivers a game that certainly will be my go-to every time.

Simple, clean and easy game mechanics. Just from readeing this first few pages you know this is a game of story and action, not bookkeeping. Also, as a guy with a vision problem I love the fact that it is very readable and consistant with it's look. That alone is worth at least a good 3 stars.

The one gripes I can see anyone having is that this game would be best with a group that is active and thinks about what who and what their characters are and, there is a lack of constant examples/sidebars many games seem to use these days but to me that's not even a minor point.

Very fluid mechanics... love it. This system represents a refinement of core rpg elements, used across tables through the years. Simple, yet - quite profound. Enjoy!

Did first read-through last night, now reading through again while I'm at work. Runehammer has made a great product here to supplement their Volume 1 & 2 of ICRPG. The classes are awesome and oh-so-simple. My brain is frothing at the idea for all of the options this opens up to me for leveling up characters on the fly, giving them something custom, rather than a predetermined upgrade. It's so free-form and bad-ass!
