This system is ideal for a group of people who are interested in a RPG which will allow you to quickly and adequately deal with the technical aspect of any RPG (i.e. the dice-throwing bit). It provides both players and DM's with an easy-to-grasp system and extensive backgrounds to base either characters or adventures on. And more is on the way!
If you are more into roleplay and less in the realistic which-quadrant-of-my-chainmail-got-which-kind-of-dent-after-- this-defensive-action, look no further. Here's the game for you.
Also good to know: this system has been extensively tested by dozens of players over multiple years.
