I have been working in my head on some ideas for a game setting I have wanted to run. The actual writing up of the info was waiting on my deciding of a system to use. What I needed was a system that allowed for exciting action and dramatic combat scenes, as well as being very character/story oriented. Been searching for months now for something that fit the bill and was prepared to buy Savage Worlds for it. I also looked into the D6 system, and considered using AD&D 2Ed with some mods (as it is one of two systems I am really fluent in). Some thought also was given to using the system from Cyberpunk 2020 (interlock).
All these thoughts going on in my head when lightening inspiration struck. Thanks to a friend of mine who gave me a gift years ago that sat on my shelf barely used I have in my possession the perfect tool. Tri-stat DX. Paul Jessup I am looking at you!
This is good for all the above reasons plus I am familiar enough with BESM that I understand the core mechanic for Tri-stat. It is universal and rules lite and, as I already own it, free.
This is spectacular with one minor glitch…now I have to define my setting idea more and I am kinda at a loss on how to organize my thoughts. With such an open system and vague setting I need to condense my ideas. I looked around for some settings that were made using Tri-stat and found only one. So I begin my condensation.
