About the Sweet20 System

The Sweet20 System is a distillation of the world's most popular role-playing system into a form that is designed for less headaches, less book-keeping, and more fun. The majority of the rules are simplified from that system, although some of them come from my other role-playing game, The Shadow of Yesterday.

Each section of the Sweet20 System is modular, and you should be able to port it into your existing game with no problems. As you use more and more of the Sweet20 System, you might find that the bits work together as a whole.

The Sweet20 System is not finished, and more bits will be posted as they are written.
