What's OLD is NEW is a toolkit oriented roleplaying game system consisting of three core games--a medieval fantasy game, a modern action game, and a futuristic sci-fi game. Each of these games has been available in hardcover since 2016.

Characters are created and advanced using a life-path system, while actions are adjudicated using a flexible d6 dice-pool game. The game is about as 'crunchy' as 5E, but is very different in execution. You can read more about it on the official website.


This year, 2023, we will be releasing the What's OLD is NEW Starter Set. This boxed set will contain a 32-page rulebook, three short adventures (one for each genre), a pile of pregenerated characters, and more. It will contain all you need to get started with WOIN.

In the aftermath of OGL-gate, we will be ensuring that this flexible game system is fully available to third parties via a robust, truly open, and irrevocable license.

This is exciting. A 32-page rulebook. I am definitely buying it. These days, when considering the purchase of an RPG, I first look at the page count. If it's one of those 300+ page opuses, I'm probably going to pass unless it's truly special. I honestly don't have the time to do a semester's worth of reading to learn a rule system that is otherwise straightforward and fairly simple. That's why I currently prefer systems like Mothership and Swords & Wizardry. Am I the only one who detests RPG bloat?

Starter set always include only a subset of rules. But the full rulebook is still over 300 pages here. Also, you have to take into account that full rulebooks include rules for progressions, off-time, inventory, crafting, etc. Those are almost all stripped in a starter set.
