A few weeks ago I started watching Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana from Geek and Sundry I was captivated by how elegant and simple the system appeared and how the world setting Wil Wheaton and the rest of the group created. It struck me how easily this could be adapted to be a 4th world setting for those interested in something like that. The Fantasy AGE rule system by Green Ronin uses a simple 3d6 mechanic with one die being an off color. When you have a challenge you roll your 3 dice and add them to a stat or skill on your character sheet. If you have doubles the off color die shows you how many stunt points you have to spend to do extra cool things as part of the action. I think I have found my new relax for fun system.
If your looking for something to digest I can’t recommend this web series enough.
