Dissatisfaction with most commercially available role-playing game systems prompted me to embark many years ago upon an effort that eventually let to what you are reading now. My intent was to come up with something light on mechanics, readily understandable, and conducive to an immersive style of play with the primary emphasis being on imaginative shared storytelling. An overabundance of stats, charts, math, and myriad complex special-case rules encumber most other table-top RPG's in ways that I feel actually detract from the enjoyment of genuine role-playing. I wanted to keep noses out of rulebooks during the gaming session. I also desired a system that didn't encourage as the motive of play that tendency in players to be excessively focused on acquiring "points" and other in-game rewards so as to "level-up" their characters. In short, I wanted to facilitate more role-playing and less roll-playing! Perhaps you will deem this effort of mine to have been a success. Feel free to take what you need from these guidelines and adapt what I offer however you see fit.
This home-brewed game system positions the Game Master (GM) as final arbiter over the rules and all that takes place within the game's story. The minimalist nature of Electric Gypsy's RPG necessitates such an all-powerful orchestrator in order for things to function properly. (But in no way does this imply that the players should refrain from making suggestions or negotiating maters!) Therefore, choose wisely someone of copious talent and experience as your Game Master!
These guidelines are written with a presumption that the players will be portraying human characters with realistic human capabilities. Non-human characters and extra-human abilities can easily be represented by further adding to what all has been given herein. It is to be expected anyhow that some modification and tailoring of this system will be required to properly fit the genre and setting! Such is easily enough accomplished. What you read here is merely a fundamental starting point upon which to build!
