Ouroboros is a rules engine for tabletop roleplaying in fantastic worlds. Like all tabletop systems, it makes certain assumptions about how a group will use it...
A FAIRLY BROAD SCOPE OF ACTIVITY
This system is very easily adapted to a large range of activity, and to including new and unpredictable circumstances. However, it does not handle these activities with great depth. As a result, it is especially well-suited to games where the characters will be using their skills in new ways on a regular basis. That said, the system does not treat all possible conflicts equally; the use of health and breath give special priority to action situations and those where life and limb at at risk for the characters. Thus, adventurous situations are fairly well supported by the mechanics, but deep intrigues and emotive stories receive slightly less support from the rules (this may be to the taste of groups that want their intrigue without too many rules mixed in).
