Speed. Balance. Realism.
This is what we deliver. We create tabletop RPGs that maintain immersion and unleash the imagination. Game mechanics are straightforward. Dice rolls are quick. Factors are balanced. Outcomes are plausible.
We serve a specific breed of gamer. We serve those who think critically and demand attention to detail. We serve those who want to play in their favorite genres, whether sci-fi, cyberpunk, fantasy, or horror, using a system that respects their intelligence and makes it all seem believable.
Extensive research and analysis have been invested into creating a innovative system that delivers the satisfaction of thinking, "Yeah, this is how it would happen. If I ever took on an Orc with layered armor with my trusty .44 Magnum revolver in real life, this is exactly how it would happen." We strive to deliver plausibility to discerning minds.
It is our goal to deliver the highest quality gaming products to fuel endless hours of gaming enjoyment.
