Me and a friend started talking about these the otherday. I used to love them, some of you guys must have played them haha. So i was thinking i might run a short one on here if people are interested.

It would most likely be a single mission deal with very simple rules but ill go into all that if people are interested.

Lol cool thats one.

And ill give everyone the choice of settings,

Real World UK, but post apocalypse
Basic medieval fantasy realm
Dystopian future scifi galaxy.

And the rules will be very simple on these things its more about the story telling than the mechanics. Everything is done from 1d6 (standard dice) you get a list of skills you pick a few your good at and a couple your bad at.

If you try something related to a skill your good at then usually you succeed unless your really unlucky

If you try something related to a skill your bad at. Unless your really lucky you will generally fail or itll work but wont go as you planned. And thats pretty much it.

I am curious and interested in this :) As I won't have to listen to people, and reading is a sure fire way I can be fully involved :D
