This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Love the cover. Totally want to put that in front of players.

But WHY should we be interested in your game?

WHAT sets your game apart from all of the other choices out there???

HOW does your game bring more fun (or different fun) to the table?

HOW does your game bring more fun (or different fun) to the table?

Basically, the game have the same advantages as "Into the Odd", but focuses on classic weird fantasy aspects instead.

So, you have a set of extremely simple rules (core rules fit on two pages) easily accessible to newcomers and veteran players alike, and character generation takes just a few minutes. The characters are feature-based (choose a new feature each new experience level), but more traditional class-based character rules are included as well (Appendix C). Combat is fast and brutal due to the lack of "to-hit" rolls: the damage goes directly to HP, and afterwards — to the STR Score, with a risk of being knocked out or worse.

The simplicity of the rules allows Referee to generate encounters, monsters, NPCs, and magic items "on the fly", and there are a couple of examples and random tables to help him with this. You could also easily convert modules and other stuff from other systems (monster conversion guide included as well).

Overall, "ItDR" might be useful for someone who doesn't like excessive amounts of "crunch" in their RPGs and prefers "rulings over rules" approach.
