Natural 20, or n20, is a role-playing game system that bridges the gap between board games and role-playing games. The design goal was to develop a fast, action-packed, and above all else, a fun to play system, that has all the flexibility and freedoms of a traditional role-playing game while still keeping the rules and other game components as compact and easily accessible as a normal board game.
The rules are constantly play-tested and updated. The complete rules can be found in n20 Wiki.
What n20 brings to the table
