What is Amorphous?
Amorphous is a table-top RPG ruleset to serve as an alternative to other systems such as Dungeons and Dragons or Pathfinder.
The following are the main motivations for the Amorphous ruleset:
- Keep things simple so the system is easy to pickup and play for new players. More complex rules might be supported for players more familiar to role-play systems but these rules should be marked as optional.
- The number of character attributes are reduced. This is for two reasons: it makes creating characters simpler and it allows players more choice in character traits that aren't limited by character score values. Want to make a warrior type character that's incredibly smart without having to sacrifice to your attack bonus? Have at it.
- Classes are out. Instead players can choose abilities in a way that mimics the mechanics of traditional class roles or they can select a mixture of abilities to create something unique.
- Promote and reward role-play.
Always round down.
