Version 0.2

Yesterday's 1-page version of Gauge consisted of the bare essentials to set up and play. Today's 2-page version is still very much in beta, but includes the following updates:

  • Rephrased rules of play (1 sentence/line) for easier skimming.
  • GM principles on newly added second page. 
  • Credits and thanks, including Creative Commons license.

I intend to run one or more playtests this year at Metatopia, and possibly build a couple "modules" or "playsets" in slightly more detailed settings, potentially with more than just one (Apocalypse World style) move. If you happen to run it yourself, please drop me a line.

Hey there,

I'm working on a diceless RPG of my own and was skimming the site to see if I found any kindred spirits. I think this is a really great framework! I would be excited to see more if you wanted to document your playtests or write up some scenarios. Good stuff!
