USR 300x190 - Unbelievably Simple Roleplaying

USR strikes a great balance between being fast and still being comprehensive. It has one straightforward action resolution system (and it actually uses more than a d20 or a d6!), and it only takes a few moments to create a character. At the same time, the character is more than a handful of numbers. You can actually define a character’s strengths, weaknesses, and background with the choices you make. 

USR (Domino Writing style): Includes a character sheet, superhero rules and a full system in just two pages.

USR Wednesdays was the name of my blog until about 2018, where I regularly offered new rules and game ideas for USR. This link goes to an unedited collection of all my posts.

    I started playing d20 in the 80’s, and progressed with easy games like Star Frontiers, Marvel (FASERIP), Top Secret, Traveller and Twilight 2000. After that, I realized games needed to be very complicated, rules for everything, so I switched to GURPS and Champions. After pulling my hair out for years, I discovered Fudge (not Fate, ewh) and have enjoyed lite role playing since.

    While I enjoyed reading USR, it was a little too simple for me (I like my fudge), but great work.

    • The simplicity of USR is what I enjoy so much. I can just jump right in and start playing. You do have to make sure you clearly explain your character’s specialisms before you start playing… but that’s kind of the same thing you have to do with Fudge/Fate aspects, isn’t it?
