What is a Tabletop RPG? Edit

If you’ve never played a tabletop RPG before, here’s the premise: a TaRPG is a story-telling game by which you play the main characters. Along the way there will trials and obstacles your characters face, and you decide how they respond, what they say, what they do, and what inevitably happens to them.

It's not just making up a story though- different tabletop RPGs have added mechanics to add uncertainty and excitement to the game. And Alchemy Toolkit (or ATK for short) is no different! Throughout the course of this website, you will find everything you need to create a character and a setting, and if you're looking for something completely unique, you can find the tools to start from scratch to create a whole new game! (advice on this can be found under Homebrew.)

What is ATK? Edit

Alchemy Toolkit doesn't have a default setting, though several can be found on this wiki, so as long as your want to play a game where your characters are proactive, capable individuals who thrive under dramatic, and sometimes, life-threatening situations, then you've come to the right place.

Alchemy Toolkit was created as the solution to a problem, me & my friends wanted to play Dungeons & Dragons in space. I was the one who made all the adventures, so when we all had a break from the table, I thought I would try and tweak the rules to create a space adventure... I failed. So I decided to make my own set of rules and mechanics for people who liked TaRPGs but didntt like following a script, or wanted to try something new.

Lets get started!
