From publisher blurb:
Did you want to play a showdown at high noon? A fight with the cardinal’s guards? Did you want to protect the Systems Alliance from an alien horde, or hunt down the goblins that attacked a village of innocent peasants? You can do all this and more with Sword’s Edge.
Sword’s Edge is a streamlined role-playing game that allows you to simulate a variety of genres with a focus on characters and stories. Its simple mechanics allow for quick resolution but also quick preparation. From the designer of Nefertiti Overdrive, Centurion, and Sword Noir, this is a game that gives you a robust framework on which to play and then gets out of your way.
