Subject: Looking for a card based generic RPG rss

Hi all,

I'm looking for a card based role-playing game. I play with a group of people that are used to pathfinder and D&D3.5. We like to emphasize on role-play and characters interactions, and not spending too much time looking for rules.

I had an idea of a game with everything that is relevent to your character would be stored on individual cards. So instead of a character sheet referencing to many rules books, we would have a deck of card. Each card would be a power, skill, an item or event a status.

I have no time or talent to build such a game, so I started digging and I've found these:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/353110609/simple-system...
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/24348879/heroes-tale-tc...
... but they seems experimental and/or not officially commercialized.

So, anyone have an idea of something that would match what we're looking for ?

Many thanks.

Pathfinder RPG already has decks of cards for all your class abilities, spells, magic items, etc...

Are you looking for a card game, that is similar to a roleplaying game, or an actual roleplaying game (just based on cards), with one person being the GM and all that?

In the latter case, maybe you do not actually need a game where everything is based on cards, but rather a very rules-light roleplaying game, of which there are quite a few around.

Bye
Thanee

You'd probably be better off asking on rpggeek.com instead of here, since that site is dedicated to RPGs and this site is dedicated to board and card games.
