Rule Zero


Rad Sign

Before starting any discussion of the game system, one concept must be made clear. The most important rule in the Barrier Peaks RPG is that all rules are servants of the game!

This is such an important idea that it is considered ‘Rule Zero’. The rules of the game are designed to allow for an even playing field. They are a set of guidelines from which everyone can begin playing with one another in a consistent and mutually digestible manner. Your referee may create house rules or alter campaign standards for the benefit of the game.

Remember: The rules are your servant, not your master!

  1. I swiped the phrase ‘The rules are your servant, not your master!’ from Castles & Crusades. It’s pretty fundamental to the whole old-school philosophy.
