Introduced in 1993, Amazing Engine from TSR is a generic role-playing system with each publication using the same minimalist generic ruleset, as described in the Amazing Engine System Guide, but each world book had an entirely different setting or genre. TSR actually ceased producing their other game lines to concentrate on this concept.
In Amazing Engine, player characters are generated with a set of four core statistics. The core stats were intended to be migrated from book to book, keeping a general character design concept. These stats were then used to build random ability scores, basic characteristics, and skills. The skills have prerequisites which must first be learned. Skill checks are made using percentile dice.
It's now being released in PDF by Wizards of the Coast.
