Magic And Steel is coming...
“Magic And Steel” is a "classic" fantasy roleplaying game, because it uses fundamental structures of games from 80's such as players and GM separation, classes based characters, long term campaign designed gameplay.
Nevertheless, this style of play is expanded with game play mechanisms and styles from 00's and 10's games, such as conflict resolution, that may like to "old" and "new" players.
Also, it looks like a "boardgame based rpg", with an unusual way of playing classic adventures.
It's my personal view of playing fantasy rpg.
Hope you'll like it. Stay tuned.
The game will be freely available in download under a CC License.

Cheers, Rob

Magic And Steel is available, in its dedicated page.

“Magic and Steel” is a “classic” roleplaying game because it takes the fundamental characteristics of the games from the eighties: clear separation between players and game GM (GM), class-based character creation, and campaign length. It expands those characteristics with new mechanisms and thoughts from the first decades of the 21st century, such as objective-focused conflict, creating a hybrid structure that will appeal to both old and new players.
In “Magic and Steel,” the players and the GM are two sides of the same coin: no participant can do without the others, because nobody is more important than anybody else. The game is always transparent and play doesn’t require a GM’s screen. The die rolls must always be open and nothing should be decided by absolute authority (unless specifically stated by the game itself).
Magic and Steel” means a lot for me. It is my homage to a way to play that enchanted me and that I will never forget. Maybe the biggest thanks should go to the authors of the Dungeons & Dragons Red Box. From the moment I opened the box my life has surely changed.

Regards, Rob
