ABOUT THE GAME
Rolls Have Consequences
Master of the Rogue Spire is a new RPG system with simple rules, lots of customization, and an old-school feel. It's OSR, but it isn't trying to reproduce the first tabletop role-playing games. Its goal is to recapture the freedom we felt playing games with fewer rules and more imagination.

Dice are your Resources
The core mechanic makes dice a resource - they are your skills, your vitality, and your lifeblood. No more erasing and rewriting HP until your character sheet rips. The dice are your character.
Results with a Twist
Failure can give a character XP, success a chance to change the story. Results are dynamic in Master of the Rogue Spire. If you hit the target number exactly, you must choose success or failure and pay the price.
Remixable Character Options
No classes! Mix and match traits, talents, and personality to make each of your characters unique. Characters grow and advance levels gaining higher dice in their core abilities.
