The Story Behind Dimensions
The Dimensions Role Playing Game started in a cabin in the woods, when a group of friends asked to play an RPG using only the contents of a popular cup-and-dice game. Frustrated with the complexity of most d6 systems, Alton worked to reduce the features of traditional tabletop role play to their simplest forms, enabling non-gamers to enter without a steep learning curve.
Originally intended for a small group of friends, the more it was tested the more people requested their own copies and additional content. As the horizon on the game expanded, it was decided that Dimensions deserved to be shared with everyone—and the Simplest Role Playing System in the World was born.
Through clever programming, innovative storytelling, and uncomplicated design, Dimensions is the Role Playing System for everyone. Veterans and Newcomers alike will be enthralled and inspired to explore and create worlds without end, all while allowing the complexities of game design to be handled by an intuitive framework.
