GATEWAY RPG is a Free, rules-lite, easy to learn, fast-paced, and universal D20 Roleplaying Game system that is perfect for introducing new players to the hobby of tabletop RPGs. This system allows for any theme or setting, from Fantasy to Cyberpunk, from Horror to Noir, or whatever your imagination can create.
GATEWAY’S simple rules are based on similar mechanics from the 5th Edition of “The most popular roleplaying game in the world”. It is easy for new players to learn the rules, go on an adventure in a short period of time, and is the perfect “gateway” to other tabletop RPGs. The open genre even provides a great format for “One Shot” adventures with your fellow veteran players and Game Masters. Alternatively, long-term on-going campaigns are possible by using Gateway’s “Advanced Play Variant” or by simply incorporating (or even replacing) with other d20 systems such as D&D, Pathfinder, Star Wars D20, etc.
RPGfix was born because of a need to sort through and categorize the multitudes of RPG sites that blink into existence every day — from the massive multi-server games to the smaller niche games.
