This section contains the rules of how to play the game.
In addition to the rules, check out the Story Seeds for inspiration.
The Shining Paths is based on Legends, the “minimally lovable”pencil-and-paper-and-friends roleplaying game. The rules are small and beautiful, emphasizing free-form character creation and fluid game play. Legends keeps your game focused on roleplaying the characters you want to play.
Legends is a genre-neutral system, but is presented here with its latest game setting: the Shining Paths, a far-future universe where the players are “Spacers” exploring the void.
Play who you want.
The next generation of Legends is being written as google docs, along with a companion fantasy game called “Legends of the Dragon Isles”. Both games share the same rules engine and GM Guide.
