Basic Role Playing

Basic Role Playing

Refined over 30 years of play, Basic Role Playing (BRP) is the core rule mechanic used by Chaosium. The rules material has been extracted from the various setting-specific books of systems such as RuneQuest and Call of Cthulhu and refined to provide a straightforward introduction to roleplaying in general, or as a core system whatever it is you want to play. Several other publishers have availed themselves of the opportunity to use this versatile mechanic.

In BRP, a character's vital statistics and skills are measured as a percentage, against which he rolls as appropriate. Characters do not have 'levels' but develop each skill individually.
