GatewayGATEWAY: The Free d20 RPG!
Welcome adventurer! GATEWAY RPG is a Free¸ rules-lite¸ easy to learn¸ fast-paced¸ and universal d20 Roleplaying Game system that is perfect for introducing new players to the hobby of tabletop role-playing games. This system allows for any theme or setting¸ from Fantasy to Cyberpunk¸ from Horror to Noir¸ or whatever your imagination can create.
