There's a Game in this Book is a tabletop RPG designed to be fast, fun, and fully customizable. The main book, this very book you can buy right now, can be read in less than an hour. Character creation takes thirty minutes (or less) once you're familiar with the system. Create any character you want, play any way you desire. All you need is thirty minutes and you can make any character you can conceive.
Want to play a merchant who's also a warrior? How about a wizard who's also a centaur? Or maybe you want a knight who casts magic with one hand while spinning his vorpal sword of bunny-death from the other? It's entirely possible (and you aren't even pushing the game with ideas like that).
We've seen dwarves, elves, cat-girls, day-walking vampires, reverse werewolves, bio-mech androids, the greatest wizard in the land who also happens to be a hand puppet, and a literal box full of monkeys. Each and every one of these was created with the system housed right here inside There's a Game in this Book. And if that's what we came up with, what could you create?
But Is It Fun?
There's a Game in this Book was written with your enjoyment as our primary goal. Most of us have played in fantasy RPGs. We know about dragons, elves and dwarves, temples, palaces and ruins. We've searched for the Lost Sword of Some Civilization in the Haunted Tunnels of Endless Dungeon Crawl. We understand that playing the same old world is boring.
There's a Game in this Book proposes something different, a world where political intrigue is just as important as fighting. Wound a man with your vicious taunts. Seduce your way into the royal chambers. Wow a crowd with the musical prowess of your armpit. Navigating the world is up to you, but as long as you're enjoying yourself, there's no wrong way to do it.
