Fyxt RPG: Play Any RPG and Play it Your Way!

No matter how much we love our games we've all experienced problems with them. There's the game you want to like, but it doesn't support the sort of concepts and game you want to play. There's the game we really enjoy, even though the mechanics are a little slip-shod and we've had to home-brew some patches to fix it. There's the game with so many rule expansions and errata that you need to have an eidetic memory just to keep your sheet straight, and there are the games that are great for one genre but which just can't do anything else.

Sure we can make it work, often by cramming an already bulging bookcase with so many game manuals that no matter what our group is in the mood for we have something that can feed the beast. Wouldn't it be easier if there was a universal system that would allow you to make any sort of character and play any sort of game? Something that didn't require you to buy a new book or crawl through game forums every few months to stay on the cutting edge? And while we're fantasizing wouldn't it be great of this thing was also free so that all you needed to play was an Internet connection and a device that could access the database?

The name of the thing we're all fantasizing about is Fyxt RPG, and it already exists.

And this is what it looks like.
Fyxt RPG is the brainchild of Troy Whitney, who decided to combine his programming skills and lifetime love of gaming together in order to create a fast, free, flexible system you can use to tell any kind of story in any kind of setting, with any kind of characters.

Haven't We Been Down This Road Before?

I know what you're thinking (because I am telepathic, since you asked). You're thinking isn't this just an online Rifts? Well... not really. While the purpose of Fyxt RPG is to allow you to play any setting, any heroes, and any sort of story, it's a game where the flavor is completely divorced from the mechanics. That means you can skin your game however you want because it doesn't matter what you call things; all that matters is what you want to do.

  1. Thanks a lot for the great article! I really appreciate the shout out for Fyxt. If anyone has any questions about the Fyxt RPG please let me know. I am happy to answer them.

  2. I've never played RPG's before Fyxt, and now Fyxt is all I'll ever play. I always wanted to play RPG but didn't want to buy all the different books and learn all the complicated game mechanics. Fyxt has easy to learn game mechanic, a blast to play, and it's FREE. I recommend Fyxt to everyone that interested in playing an RPG.
