Sword's Edge System (SES) is a generic role-playing game based on the role-playing games Sword Noir: a Role-Playing Game of Hardboiled Sword & Sorcery and Kiss My Axe: Thirteen Warriors and an Angel of Death (coming soon). SES has been simplified, removing the genre specific elements used in Sword Noir and Kiss My Axe.
SES uses a selection of player-defined qualities to describe a character. There are no set skills, feats, talents, edges, or other features-everything is created by the player to describe the kind of character the player desires to play. These qualities provide bonuses for meeting a Target Number in order to complete difficult tasks.
If you find the system interesting, Sword Noir: a Role-Playing Game of Hardboiled Sword & Sorcery is now available from Sword's Edge Publishing.
