The Basics

d20, roll high. Get bonus dice to rolls instead of static bonuses. Dice are there to save your butt when you’ve as a player role-played yourself into a pickle. Magic is not full-on reliable Vancian resource, but more random and unique. There are only 3 classes. Base stats are more in line of “player skill” approach than those in D&D. And there is a kick-ass combat system that is mostly compatible with red box monster stats.
