Looking for advice on designing a very basic RPG

Post by gjbkk »

This is purely as a little hobby. I wanted to try my hand at a really simple RPG design for an online wargaming universe called Three Plains, with the support of its creator. I have chosen the Creative Commons-licensed Simple RPG System for mechanics.

Thing is, I really have no clue what I'm doing, so I wanted to ask if anyone has any feedback to help avoid the surefire clangers I am certain to drop.

My latest draft is here, I am only five pages in:

Again, I stress my only goal here is to create a very simple RPG without any massive flaws in it. Advice is welcome!

Your Google doc isn't public so us run of the mill people can't read it. :shock:

There's not a lot to comment on yet, especially as this is the first time I've read the underlying Simple Game System. However, your races and classes seem workable.

Thank you for the feedback, it will indeed be extremely light. I will continue to work on it as time allows.
