A downloadable game

A minimalist "Free Kriegsspiel Revolution" tabletop roleplaying game.

This means this is a small framework for playing worlds, not rules, inspired by the style of play in the earliest days of the hobby.

Essentially this comes down to a rulings not rules setup where the referee makes called based on the fiction of the world, players respond with what they do, and sometimes the conflict goes to an unmodified 2d6 to determine whose intent wins out.

I am currently playtesting this in a number of settings, this is my current working document for those playtests.

I read your essay in Knock! 3 and decided to see what else you had to say. I think the character creation process should be eliminated entirely. Characters should start out as 'blobs', just 'owners' of a collection of ambiguous assets that could be magic points or hit points or action points. To perform a significant action requires expended at least one asset unless you have a dedicated asset in place. As time goes along, the characters take form as the players make decisions and take action in the game-world and decide what character features they want to make 'dedicated assets'. I like the idea that the dice get rolled primarily (exclusively?) when the GM and the players cannot agree. Hadn't thought of that

Could benefit from a screenshot of at least one page so that potential downloaders can get a feel for some of the rules / writing style.

The post would just be the game, since its just one page. I could probably just post the game text in the description.

Ok I added a screenshot of the entire ruleset.

Maybe a slight clue what this game is about before downloading it? :)
