Inscrutable 4th Edition

Well, my samurai, the time has come and the completely revised fourth edition is upon us.


Expanded to a more legible and complete four pages it contains a new profession – the Gakusho, new rules for action and combat based upon those in WYSIWYG, reincarnation and a complete overhaul of pretty much everything else.

What has not changed is the single mechanic for determining the results of actions, so he game flows pretty much as before.

You can find this in the Rules Downloads section.

Let me know what you think here and, on the Dead Simple Facebook page:


About Craig

For those who need to know these things: - I'll never see 50 again. - I'm tall enough to see well in crowds and fat enough to leave a wake. - I'm well married to a woman with twice my smarts, three delightful and challenging children (er-hem), and one cat overlord. - I am Welsh. - I have to work for a living, but do nothing that makes me perspire.

    An unexpected weekend treat! Looking really good after a quick skim through, feels tight.

    Only thing – page headers still read 3rd edition.

    I like the new rules (and extra professional abilities! Rejoice~) but I’m still stuck on one question:

    Is the target number to hit someone just 15, or 15 + Defense? Do your armor and helmet apply to Defense and Toughness, or just Toughness?
