Hexatome is a light-weight role playing game rule system. It emphasizes simplicity and fluently progressing plots rather than hampering and constricting constellations of rules. "The show must go on", above all, represents the principal motto of Hexatome game sessions. This is why it best fits for quick, action-loaded scenarios. Although the core game mechanisms are tailored around six-sided dice, the rules may be incorparated into play with or without the use of dice.
Hexatome was designed with fast, applicable and simple rules in mind. It is meant to propel the game session in fast forward mode. Another design goal was its generic approach, making it suitable for virtually any kind of setting. This is emphasized by its small sized core rule set which is extendable by various, more specific, secondary rules.
