You're holding the cutting edge of roleplaying rules. The Story Engine is designed top to bottom for "story games" without the vestiges of wargaming that shackle so many other "storytelling" games. We've included Story Bones, out free online introductory version of the rules to help you get started as quickly and easily as possible.

Story Engine uses relative instead of linear scales, fitting everything from super-heroes and high fantasy to film noir and murder mysteries. The rules adapt seamlessly to any genre, giving you fluid, fun games that focus on the story and not the rules.

Action is resolved as whole scenes through a bidding process; players spend their resources to increase their chances, turning crucial moments into dramatic scenes.
