Tabletop Game: REIGN
REIGN is a Tabletop Roleplaying game written by Greg Stolze that uses the One-Roll-Engine, which is used in other games Godlike, Wild Talents, and Nemesis.

REIGN and its supplements contain examples of:

  • Fighter, Mage, Thief: Although the game is classless, directly referenced in the default setting.
    Magic splinters numbers. Stealth destroys magic. Numbers overwhelm stealth.
  • Honor Before Reason: Dindivaran nobles are defined by this trope.
  • Our Demons Are Different: They're powerful, magical, and bizarre, but entirely earthly and natural creatures with no ties to souls or the afterlife. Demon eggs form in the soil naturally, although the exact mechanism and cause isn't clear.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: The game has giant fleas made of earthen materials which are known for crushing entire cities by landing on them after jumping. Also for being full of precious metal and gems it sucks out of the ground... and demons, because it also sucks their eggs out of the ground.
  • Point Build System: REIGN actually uses three: One for creating your character, one for advancing your character, and one for creating a Company.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Checking that your company of mercenaries all know the same military hand signals, not just that they know them at all turns out to be kind of important in one fluff aside.
