The System

Flashback is an RPG system that keeps things simple and fun. Character growth, storytelling and player interaction are always in the spotlight - combat and dice mechanics are just a way to resolve disputes. Even first-time RPG players can learn to the game in under 10 minutes, and character creation is only 2 steps.

The system's innovative card mechanics also make it quick and easy for beginner GMs to generate fantastic adventures on the fly. Just construct an Encounter deck and an Item deck, mix in some print-and-play locations for instant campaigns and quests. Experienced GMs can focus on crafting epic stories for the players without slowing down to roll up random NPCs, events or treasure.


The Rules

As the GM tells the story of the world, you are telling the story of your character. Flashback turns every situation, even combat and dungeon crawls into roleplaying opportunities.

The rules are based around a simple resource-based dice mechanic for all actions: the more effort a character expends on an action, the better their chances of success. Flashback's unique experience system rewards players for weaving a detailed backstory and making choices that are consistent with their character's motivations.
