The War Between Heaven and Hell is Over. Heaven Won.
Man, Are You Screwed!
Once upon a time, NUELOW Games' Steve Miller made the statement, "Any talented game designer with an understanding of what makes an RPG work can write a fully playable, stand-alone roleplaying game in under an hour."
Veteran game designer and novelist Jeff Grubb (co-founder of the Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance fantasy worlds and designer for ArenaNet's MMO Guild Wars) decided to put Miller's notion to the test
At the end of the experiment emerged Dyvil: First Edition (Jeff Grubb's 30-Minute Roleplaying Game), proof positive that Miller isn't completely insane, and an illustration of the difference between a "Gaming Legend" and a "Former TSR Visionary": Not only is Jeff Grubb's 30-Minute Roleplaying Game funnier and more innovative than Steve Miller's 30-Minute Roleplaying Game, it's comes complete with a setting! (All Miller produced was a generic rules set... it took the skill of a Gaming Legend to produce a setting along with the rules in the time allotted!)
Dvyil: First Edition (Jeff Grubb's 30-Minute Roleplaying Game) is a complete, stand-alone RPG. In seven pages, it presents character generation rules, task and combat resolution mechanics, and lots of good humor.
Never has gaming the Armageddon aftermath been so simple or fun!
