Swords of Phalos is has evolved over 17 years. It has developed originally from a mixture of Fantasy Trip, first edition AD&D, and classic Traveller. The system is very free form with respect to character generation (no rigid class definitions, like Paladin, Cleric, etc.). the player can craft a character that fits a more "normal" existence (not all priests cast spells, not all warriors lack the ability to pick a lock, not all rogues wear leather armor, not all wizards swing a staff, etc.) combat is fairly brisk, and tasking is follows a general theme of "several" d6 versus a statistic modified by skills. thus there are no tables or wierd calculations.
The campaign milieu of Phalos is far from generic, and the much of its history and make up will challenge players and their preconceived beliefs.
i've been gaming for over 20 years, ranging from original D&D, AD&D, classic Traveller, Fantasy Trip, as well as several online RPGs (EQ1, WoW). i'm just looking for a new group since i left my old group back on the east coast. the rules and compaign are fully drafted and already span 20k years. all it needs are new heros to save the day.
