Myriad Lite

What Is Myriad Lite?

Before home computers were widely available, people played role-playing games (RPGs) by sitting around a table, telling shared stories, and rolling dice to determine if their "character" in the story succeeded or failed at the actions the player wanted them to take within the story.

Myriad Lite is a project to adapt a pen-and-paper role-playing game rulebook into OpenSimulator Xengine and SecondLife Mono scripts, and the related 3D objects, needed to implement a pen-and-paper role-playing game in 3D virtual worlds.

The Myriad Universal RPG System

Myriad Lite is based on the book MYRIAD: A UNIVERSAL RPG SYSTEM by Ashok Desai, which is freely downloadable as a PDF e-book from Lulu.

You also also purchase the "Myriad Special Extended Edition" printed book from that site, which includes for additional rules, many more examples, and other information.

I do not make any financial gain if you purchase the book, but if you would like to support the original writer, I recommend it.

It is helpful to read through the original rulebook to understand the rules and assumptions "behind" Myriad Lite, before diving into the scripts.
