Welcome to the Other Gods web site.
Other Gods is a game that gives new players a way of entering the role-playing hobby without any stumbling blocks whatsoever. It is a rich, full featured system that should please veteran gamers, but every element has been designed to be absolutely clear to someone with no gaming knowledge at all.
I am currently allowing copies of the game to go out to people who want to playtest it. If you’ve got someone you want to introduce to gaming and think this is the way you’d want to go, let me know!
So, what does the game provide that other “easy to learn” games do not? Every one of those games still requires learning fairly extensive rules. They also tend to be complicated when it comes to making a character but Other Gods does not suffer from these problems. Making a character only requires answering a few questions. No dice or points are involved.
Really, I could go on and on, but it’d be best to jump in with both feet and see for yourself. Drop me a line if you’re interested.
Currently, Other Gods has playtesters in Boston and New York/New Jersey. *
