  • Uses a simple backbone of 3d6 rolls.
  • Mix and match “flavors” to produce a wide variety of behavior and action results.
  • Ask questions about characters just as you would ask a player or story narrator.
  • Simple results and lists that drive your story without getting in the way.
  • Extensible, easily hacked and reskinned for a variety of genres and play styles.

This is a “backer” type edition.
