    Your comment just abruptly cuts off but that's a good sample of what you're doing. I'd agree, unless you wanted to add in something to introduce randomness, maybe just for an event that happens, simple choices are probably the best and that looks like a good start. You'd want to plan out your...

    I still lean toward suggesting you at least looking at Wushu (linked above), if for no other reason than to get some ideas of how it approaches play - it is a free, very simple (for them, but really for the GM too) system with just a few main traits the players can create themselves and no...

    What do you mean by "all descriptive solutions" or a "way to be not so linear"? I mean I can understand you mean you don't want it to be railroady, but teaching people a language through the medium of gaming has different rules (in my opinion) because like math is a universal language, so too is is...

    I'd agree with the above posts. Not a fan of d20 myself anymore but my first purchase and game was '88 redbox, and having played AD&D2E, 3x and 4, I have to say I would prefer original '88 redbox with some better rules for separate races and classes and skills.

    If no one at the top of the round intends to attack or threaten the other side, I can deal with entire round for this extended posting period. Also, if the party is agreed to flee, then combat ends, and you get to decide how you wish to travel through the forest. The options I see include: ...

    Hi there, very cool to see some game design around here. =) I like your start and overall the rules and definitely the feel, simplistic and reminiscent of, to me, 8 bit console RPGs like Final Fantasy and Zelda. One thing offhand is you could mock up a character sheet and maybe a list of your...

Would like to try The Chronicles of Future Earth (BRP).
About Me
Biography:
I'm a late-40's Canuck with probably waaay too much time on his hands :). In year 2 of the re-union tour via after a 25 year hiatus from RL RPGing (due to a really crappy locale for gamer density/resources). I'm not mobile outside of walking distance so I'm limited to online play at this time. I've got Mirc, Skype, Maptool, OpenRPG and am willing to DL other software as needed. There are a bunch of us who play in various groups. Always looking for more. If you want references try looking the following folks up on PnPG games: Chrine, Apostate 2012, Layne, trialbyfireent, Gunhaven. All of these folks have sat at the same table as me for quite a length of time and know me best. Feel free to talk to any of them.
