What is ORFA?

ORFA logo

ORFA is a minimalist role playing games system used to present NPCs for new Jorune material. It can also be used as a fully functional game system for newcomers, or for established gamers who want to play and don't have time to learn each others favorite system. NOW!

Want to do something? You try by rolling one die. Take applicable Stats (never more than three) and any applicable named skill(s), apply modifiers before the roll. That gives you your Target Number. Roll 1d20 and if you roll your Target number, or less, you succed. The difference between the Target number and the number on your d20 gives you the "degree of success" (or points of damage, if your action is part of a combat).

Why another gaming system? Because gamers develop their favorite game system and become worse than religious fanatics with their devotion to OTS - the One True System!

Game systems are like ice cream; you like what you like and anyone who doesn't like pistaccio is a heathen.

ORFA is a way to get playing FAST and to fulfill the purpose of role playing games - to have FUN.

And it's free.

What's In It?

For more than twenty years, Dhar-Copra Joe has been gathering and generating material for the world we know as Jorune. His biggest change is to call the world as it called by the native - Sho-Caudal.

Jorune is the name of the Earth scientist who first detected the world around star H-21 about 140 years in our future. (It was said to be 160 years in our future, but that was twenty years ago.)

Sho-Caudal does not just mean "Isho Wind" but the whole energy system that includes Isho, the seven moons, and all the beings that live within that complex dance of power.

That's what this newsletter covers.
