Simple-RPG Description & Premise

Simple-RPG (or Snap!) is designed to permit a storyteller to weave a tale with as few as one player or as many as he can handle, without any cumbersome mechanic, or piles of skills to track, or munchkin-y levels to achieve. A character in Simple-RPG is a pile of basic and broad-category skills with a lot of detail filled-in by the player. The game is designed for players who enjoy interactive storytelling, that can method-act, or come up with details on the spot.

Background elements and personality take the forefront in this system, rather than hit points or magical energy pools. Everyone is born equal, and improvement is slight, applying only to skill bumps from usage.

Simple-RPG is designed so that you can create a character in under five minutes, and role-play a personality, rather than spend countless hours making something that is fine-tuned for a highly-detailed and extravagant RPG system. It is in complete contrast to the Zoria RPG and Epiphany RPG, gaming systemns, and is as plain-Jane as can be, chucking aside nasty impediments like rules and frameworks in favour of the simple joy of the game.

It really is As Easy as 1-2-3d6!
