This was very well written with clear explanations. This helped me understand 2 stat games from the development point of view which helped me see games from various angles, as a player, a GM, and a writer. Thank you!
You Have Two Stats
A downloadable guide
Popularized by games such as Lasers & Feelings and Honey Heist, one page tabletop role playing games are easy to pick up and play, a great introduction for those who have never played a tabletop role playing game before, and a great place to start for people looking to get into designing their own tabletop role playing games. They're incredibly fun and can offer a surprising amount of versatility for how simple they are!
I genuinely believe that anyone can make role playing games, and one-page ttrpgs are a great place to start! This guide is designed with tons of examples to get you started.

Thanks so much for this!
Thanks so much for making this. It's really clear and helpful, and I'll definitely be having a go!
I didn't think I'd have a use for this since I'm using L&F as a base but then changing it to use 3 stats instead of 2 and adding extra mechanics on top of it. When I saw the "More Than Two Stats" section on page 2 I realized I should probably be doing more than just diagonal reading.
This is an amazing resorce for anyone willing to either hack an existing TTRPG or create their own - it's simple, straight to the point and easy to understand. Well done!
This is actually good! I like it. 5/5 Stars.
