The Fyxt Role Play Game System handles character items with an Item Tier system. Like other role playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons, items, gear, and equipment play a very important role in a player’s character. The Fyxt RPG makes it very easy to determine the strength of an item by the Item Tier. Players of Fyxt soon learn that the flexibility and unique ability to tailor-make any item that fits a character outshines other role playing games.
First, players are not limited in the number of items they can possess. A player character in Fyxt can have 100 magic items or they can use just one. A character can have a trinket or a tool for every situation or have one ring that holds 100 effects. This flexibility shows the nearly limitless possibilities in just the items and equipment a character can have and use. The one real limit is that item effects, like other Fyxt effects, do not stack. This means that a character can wield a +4 Rapier of Attack and +6 Sword of Attack. However, they will only get the best bonus, +6 to Attack in this case.
Second, players are not limited to what kind of item an effect must be bound to. In most role playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons, only certain effects can go onto a certain item type or area. An item in Fyxt can have any effect that a player wants. So, instead of being forced to have a +5 weapon in another game to get a +5 to attack, a player can have Fluffy Bunny Slippers of Attacking +5. (The Fluffy Bunny Slippers of Attacking +5 hold a bit of the essence of a famous and particularly deadly bunny).
Between these two huge improvements to old role play games like Dungeons and Dragons, players and Game Masters alike should have no trouble coming up with the perfect items and gear for all of their characters. The Fyxt Role Play Game System brings a level of flexibility and imagination into role play gaming. This is truly Fyxt RPG gaming 2.0.
