Although many products for players of tabletop RPGs tout a dizzying array of new powers, classes, paths, spells, devices, and similar fare, Dice Unloaded adopts a different philosophy.
It asks “How much mileage can players and DMs get out of the rules and options we already have?”
Characters featured in Dice Unloaded draw as much as possible on the rules as they are, preferring adjustments to descriptions and flavor text to rule changes, and preferring tweaks to wholly new content.
Co-founders Wallace and Graham share a game-design principle: Limitations enhance rather than restrict creativity. Having to work within a set of structures forces you to be more innovative than simply abandoning restrictions all together. Put more simply, you have to know the rules before you can break them. Dice Unloaded explores creative and interesting ways to create unique and inspired characters, NPCs, and monsters by working within the rules and using them to enhance rather than limit possibilities.
