Nameless is a simple and customizable fantasy game system. It was designed from a role playing perspective and should be simple to learn, implement and expand upon if so desired.
This project originally started as an effort by John Barnes to create a replacement for Dungeons and Dragons in his group. At the time he was very disgruntled with the rules set and the lack of customization which he wanted to better create his characters which were "stifled" by the class system. This turned into the failed game Realms Guard which was abandoned because in the end it was nothing more than trying to make D&D fit the classless system John envisioned.
John then branched off into a game he called Nameless (couldn't think of a name at the time) based around an idea he had.
