Saga of Dragon Star & N.R.G. Syste,: The Saga of Dragon Star is set in a fictional world, where an evil empire known as the Keln Dominion is slowly conquering all the known lands. And as liberties everywhere are suppressed, refugees flee to the last bastion of freedom: The Frontier Lands. Here, they scratch out what living they can from the unyielding landscape, and they are forced to live side-by-side with refugees from other realms, so humans, elves, orcs, dwarves, and minotaurs come together, each with his own agenda and goals.

The N.R.G. Core Rulebook is our genericsword-and-sorcery RPG. N.R.G., which stands for non-restricted roleplaying game, is centered around the idea of player participation and continuous engagement. We want to create a highly tactical roleplaying experience that allows all players, no matter whose initiative it currently is, to be able to participate (or at least potentially be able to participate) at any time. Rather than trying to speed combat up to get through each player’s turn as quickly as possible and rushing to the next, we do the opposite—we slow it down. We make every moment and every decision critical, keeping the sense of vulnerability alive at each tick of the clock in an attempt to enhance the experience and put each decision under the microscope. When death can come from any attack at any time, it reduces the formulaic approach of combat and eliminates the feeling of resource attrition and going through the motionsto just wait for your next turn to come up.
