Fighting against time as a bomb that will end countless lives is ticking away with an army between you and the death of millions. Or whatever your imagination conjures.

What is a Roleplaying Game?

Wikipedia describes roleplaying games as:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Role-playing_game
A role-playing game (sometimes spelled roleplaying game; abbreviated RPG) is a game in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting. Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through literal acting, or through a process of structured decision-making regarding character development. Actions taken within many games succeed or fail according to a formal system of rules and guidelines.

 

What type of Roleplaying Game is CORE RPG?

The CORE RPG is a universal cinematic roleplaying game. It can be used for any genre and any style of roleplaying game. The rules are ideal for a dungeon crawling hack and slash, or intense drama filled roleplay story. Or even a mix of everything. It has rules for combat with all technological levels of weapons, from swords and bows to laser pistols and force swords. The rules also cover different types of Powers from Arcane energies of a wizard, faithful prayers of a cleric or even fantastic super powers of a superhero. There are rules to govern vehicular combat in all environments, be it beneath the waves, across endless wastelands or amongst the stars.

There are rules to cover different types of scenes including fast action packed combat scenes, deep drama that requires a battle of words rather than swords, romance scenes that deal with seduction or building the bonds of loved ones, dealt with in a tasteful fashion. And many more.

This is a set of rules to allow you to forge incredible stories and legends, design exciting characters and villains – both as Players or as a Games Master; the Games Story Teller, commonly known as a Games Master. The Games Master is the Director or Narrator of the tale.

Although careful consideration has been made so that the CORE RPG has been designed as a universal set of rules for any genre and any given situation, in certain sections explanation have been given where rules may differ according to Genre. Also the individual official CORE Worlds may expand upon these rules, enriching your gaming experience.

All rules will be updated with new additions and freely available on our GMD Online website.
