100 / 3 RPG

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

A percentile RPG on a single page where player characters consist of 3 attributes (Violence, Elegance and Intelligence), a profession, a one-sentenced description of their wishes and weaknesses and two hit points (body and insanity).

When dice have to be rolled, a roll less or equal the most appropriate attribute succeeds, a roll over means failure. The three attributes also come into play when the characters get hurt or face exceptional mental stress.

This RPG is best suited for small campaigns or one-shots and fits into any setting.

Tiny Quest

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

A tabletop RPG is a roleplaying game played with other people. One of those people takes on the role of the GM, who creates the world and controls all the characters in it, and also resolves any questions about the rules. The other players make player characters (PC), special characters the GM does not control. The players each control one PC, and use them to explore the world the GM has created. Due to the GM being there to make on the fly rulings, tabletop RPG’s allow you to try almost anything.
