to System DL, a new direction in role-playing!
System DL is a completely diceless role-playing system which still
plays like the old diced games everyone's used to. After all,
if, as Einstein once said, God doesn't play dice with the Universe,
then why should you?
System DL includes a high-speed
character generation system which creates balanced, well-rounded characters
with actual backgrounds, not just numbers on a page. Game
is blindingly fast, since there are no dice to chase around.
Play online, in a comfortable chair, on a cross-country trip, in places you
never considered before. Take the fun wherever you go with System
Sounds neat; so where can I find it?

To whet your gaming appetites, a
freeware version is available on this very site. These rules are slanted toward
a fairly generic
low-tech fantasy milieu. Many of the concepts from the full version have been
pared down or ignored, but the basics are intact. As always, we will keep this
freeware edition available in thanks for all the valuable input
and comments from net.users
over the years.
You can also download System DL
an Adobe PDF file for ease of use and printing.
