These rules are a work in progress, and while one person may have written them down and created a page for them, you, the player, have every chance to help us build and grow this game.
The Rising Dark Rule Set was created with the following goals in mind.
- It's a D6 (six sided dice) based system.
- The rules should be simple yet effective as a basic role-playing game.
- These rules provide a framework, while The Rising Dark expands on that framework by focusing on fantasy role-playing.
- The system should be orientated to telling a good story rather than simulation.
- It should be developed with a ShareAlike license. Note that this license includes only this rules set, which lives on this page, not the adventure set out in the rest of this site.
Nothing exists in a vacuum, and The Rising Dark is no exception. I'm indebted to those who have come before and done such great work on their own role-playing games. Here is a list of links that have inspired or in some way contributed to The Rising Dark:
