Game Description

Abigail, Arizona is an RPG System designed to be enjoyed by anyone, young or old. The system is simple and flexible and takes the Players on a journey to 1872, the Wild West.

 

Development Overview

Abigail, Arizona, if you didn't know, doesn't exist. It is the fictional setting of my RPG, Abigail, Arizona. The game is set in 1872, in the Old West. When starting my System, I decided to target a demographic that is rarely targeted, children and non-RPG Players. Because of this decision, multiple design decisions had to be made. For starters, I wanted to keep the game as simple as possible. My system is based entirely on a D6 roll. The little bit of Combat involved in the game is based on the Skill System that determines how easy or how difficult something to do is for that Character. The simple design allows for fast Character creation and even faster gameplay, while still keeping the depth of a typical RPG.

The adventure scenario that I have written is designed to guide any type of Player, new or old to the RPG genre, through the complete RPG experience. The story involves the Players adventuring away from the town following an ancient Treasure Map. Throughout the adventure they will have to deal with crossing a river, getting lost in the desert and eventually reaching a long forgotten Native American City filled with traps and dangerous puzzles.
