The Basic and Generic (BaG) role-playing manual is a modularized tabletop role-playing system for players breaking into the genre. Rules are divided into three modules, allowing inexperienced players to learn over time and experience players to delve deep - all while playing side-by-side. Every line of this manual is written to make RPGs accessible for all ages and levels of experience.

This core manual is the only required manual to play BaG and features customizable character creation, a unique dice system, and succinct rules. The BaG system offers adventures of any genre ranging from basic fantasy to players' favorite fandoms. No world or character is outside the bounds of playability. The manual includes....

Over 1.2 QUINTILLION possible characters to play
Over 860 BILLION locations to explore
Structured, open-ended magic system
Customizable item crafting
Large-scale wars

The BaG experience begins with character creation, achieved by assigning 65 skill points into fourteen different skills. The number of points assigned to a skill determines the character's skill level, the upper threshold of his or her abilities in that area. Then, players select a combination of positive and negative characteristics.

BaG characteristics represent characters' training, habits, history, and personality and add both role-playing flavor and skill bonuses or penalties. By simply assigning skill points and picking characteristics, players have complete control over their character's archetype and playstyle.

Players roll a single ten-sided dice and compare the result with their skill level to determine success or failure. If the result is greater than their skill level, the task was beyond their ability and their attempt fails. If the result is less than or equal to their skill level, they make a capable attempt, This black-jack style mechanic ensures dynamic but simple task resolution.

After players learn basic mechanics, modules two and three add new rules. These mechanics, including customized spell creation and large-scale warfare, broaden the role-playing and strategic scope of adventures. Alternatively, veteran players can immediately begin playing with all three modules alongside beginners learning with only the first.

BaG is concise, dynamic, and limitless, perfect for any world or collection of players. This manual is the most easy to learn and easy to use system for breaking into tabletop role-playing.
