What is Open Legend?
Open Legend is an open-source tabletop roleplaying game being played right now by gamers around the world!
If you have played roleplaying games in the past, you may be wondering What makes Open Legend worth my time? What makes it different? The secret’s in the title: Open. Ok, maybe it’s not such a secret. Everything about the game is about opening the doors of possibility for a flexible narrative that still has plenty of strategic choices and a solid game aspect that delivers enough fun for everyone!
In this gaming world of more rule sets than any gamer can keep track of, any new addition had better be pretty special, and this one is! Open Legend is worth your time to look at because it’s so versatile. It elegantly spans many genres… the creators of Open Legend are demonstrating this with a setting of Amaurea’s Dawn. –Ed Greenwood
Open Narrative. The rules respond and react to your narrative, not the other way around. So you can get deep into the strategy but have the freedom to shape many story’s from each combination of character attributes and feats. It’s not the first time a classless system has been attempted, but we believe that both the strategy of character development and the storytelling of freeform roleplay complement each other. So we’ve merged the two in a fresh way that (through much testing) has proven very rewarding to veterans and newcomers alike.
Open Genre. We designed Open Legend for all genres, so the core rules are compatible with any setting. The mechanics focus on resulting effects rather than causes, allowing you to explain the cause in a way that tells the most satisfying story at your table. Struggle for survival in a post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland, soar amidst the clouds on your crystal-powered airship, or explore an alien-infested space station abandoned at the edge of the universe. The possibilities are endless!
Open Dice. In Open Legend, dice EXPLODE! That means that whenever ANY die rolls maximum, you get to re-roll it and add the new roll to your total, ad infinitum. The volatile nature of dice rolling makes every roll count. Each session of Open Legend is full of tense situations and the tides can turn at a moment’s notice, for better or worse
Open Source. That’s right. The core rules are written with accommodation for free use in commercial and non-commercial 3rd Party publications. That means anyone can publish their own adventures, rules supplements, and more!
Sounds like fun doesn’t it? Head over to the Kickstarter and join the hundreds of other gamers playing Open Legend!
