Like any other rules-light game, Year Zero Mini (YZM) is designed to provide a light framework to allow you to quickly jump into your favourite setting. Where other rules-light games might emphasise action or heroics, YZM is a little more down to earth - telling stories of a more gritty and relatable nature.
Using the Year Zero Engine (soon to be covered by an OGL from Fria Ligan), this game uses pools of standard six-sided dice, and success is measured by any 6s showing up in a roll. You won't find target numbers, complicated mechanics, or funky dice here. We want this game to be accessible to a wide range of people!
YZM is best experienced in one-shots, convention games, or short campaigns (around a dozen sessions). For longer-term play, keep an eye out for Year Zero Lite, the big brother to YZM coming out later in 2019!
