What is Borigon?

Borigon is a conventional style role-playing game. Characters develop a list of skills and conditions that make them who they are. The player has total control over how the character is created, with the approval of the person running the game; the Game Master (or GM as this person will be referred to from now on).

This webpage will present the rules of Borigon chapter-by-chapter. This is a work in progress. If you find errors, or have questions, you can contact me by email by clicking here. Feel free to download these chapters, if you wish to have hardcopies send me an email.
