From SMG:

Imagine a role playing game where you can sit down at anytime, with anyone and just play. You pull a character sheet out of your wallet, use a rolling app on your phone and get to it.  Everyone already knows all the rules and those that don’t, learn them immediately.

Charm is a universal tabletop Role Playing Game that uses a simple, yet versatile rule set. The rules can be learned in minutes and offer a fully immersive game experience. A character can fit on a sheet as small as a business card.

Charm uses our intuition about a scenario to help drive the game with a focus on role playing. The game allows characters to be built so they are good at what they do. This allows each player to have a unique experience and have confidence when making decisions.

Charm includes 7 short scenarios that demonstrate how to modify the existing simple ruleset to create a new play experience.
