The Chaosium System

Welcome to Chaosium’s Basic Roleplaying Quick-Start Edition, a booklet that collects the essential rules for BRP and presents them in abbreviated form.

This book comprises a basic roleplaying game system, a framework of rules aimed at allowing players to enact a sort of improvisational radio theater—only without microphones—and with dice determining whe­ther the characters succeed or fail at what they attempt to do. In roleplaying games, one player takes on the role of the gamemaster (GM), while the other player(s) assume the roles of player characters (PCs) in the game. The gamemaster also acts out the roles of characters who aren’t being guided by players: these are called non-player characters (NPCs).

From its origin, Basic Roleplaying was designed to be intuitive and easy to play. Character attributes follow a 3D6 curve, and the other Basic Roleplaying mechanics are even simpler. Virtually all rolls determining success or failure of a task are determined via the roll of percentile dice. This means that there’s less fiddling with dice of different types, and the concept of a percentile chance of success is extremely easy for beginners and experienced players to grasp.

Use this booklet to introduce new players to BRP, or hand it out to your established group for quick and dirty character creation.

THIS IS A DOWNLOADABLE BOOK. By Jason Durall. A 48 page downloadable booklet with watermarked pages and cover images.
