The Tri-Stat System is the ideal game engine for all your campaign needs. Featuring a scalable system, point-based character creation, and intuitive combat and task resolution, Tri-Stat dX: Core System is a free exploration into essential and advanced role-playing techniques and methods.
The Tri-Stat System premiered at GenCon 1997 in our first publication, Big Eyes, Small Mouth. It used two six-sided dice to resolve all tasks, didn’t include a skill system, and had very few rules. The little 96-page anime RPG was an instant success, selling through its first print run very quickly and earning an Origins Award nomination for the Best RPG.
Over a year later, Tri-Stat was expanded in the Sailor Moon RPG and Resource Book to include more options and game mechanics. From 1999 to 2002, new mechanics and options were added to each RPG that we published to customize the game to suit our goals. The core elements remained the same, but the details were refined.
