This update to the HDL Universal Tactical Role-Playing Game revises and expands upon the quick, realistic rules based on the Half Die Level system. The rules are still just as fast-paced, adaptable and deadly; class- and level-free, the possibilities for character evolution and adventures are unlimited. The new expanded rules improve overall customization with even more Backgrounds and Weaknesses, optional rules and clarifications.
Paragon introduces the Active Delay combat system, which departs from the turn-based combat of many RPGs for a more fluid and engaging experience. Now, combat flows organically, with each action taken having its own delay in time rather than arbitrary turns.
ESPers, Cyborgs, Sorcerers and Dragons
Brand new chapters include dozens of unique, mind-blowing psychic abilities, integrated and revised cybernetics rules, and an all-new magic system complete with more than 380 spells. The added bestiary is rife with real-world and fantastic creatures including dragons, vampires and werewolves, as well as detailed rules for creating new creatures.
