IMAGINES is free to read and use non-commercially. It is a roleplaying game system designed over thirty years plus, by role-players for role-players—er, well, largely by two role-players, for everyone else. It’s not perfect—no game system is. It’s not an industry changer—generic fantasy game systems are dime-a-dozen, and they were dime-a-dozen in 1990 too.
