There is hardly anything that I can find wrong with this system. It's simple, super easy to pick up for someone who's never even heard of TTRPG's. I love the old school black and white of the manual. It's very D&D pre AD&D. If printed it definitely gives you the old school vibe. The only thing I would work on is

1) A clear leveling system passed level 3
2) Some clarification on weapons and whether they're 1 handed or otherwise
3) More advanced spell list (Plays into level system for Spell Slingers)
4) More homebrew contributions from the RPG community.

This has so much potential to be adapted easily into different genres. It can literally be anything you want it to be. I enjoy the solo campaign aspect of it too. I'd love to see some campaign settings put out for this.

Thank you so much for the effort you put into this.

Thanks for your kind words good sir :) I do plan to take all your points and expand upon them in the near future. At the moment its very a very disposable heroes type arrangement, however I do want to change that.

Thanks again.

S.a.r.p.s. has good potential to be a very nice pick up and play rules lite system. Nothing too fancy but it's definitely expandable and I like that. I also like all of the explanations and examples given in the book. My only real concern is the layout. The margins are a bit wide and there is too much blank space. I think it could be consolidated into a tighter layout for a lower page count. I want to print it out but there is too much needless gray areas that I don;t want to waste ink on.

Thanks for your honest review of S.A.R.P.S. Based on what you have said I will reformat the PDF asap by reducing the margins and removing the grey backgrounds.
There are a few more bits I know need work and I'll do my best to sort them out.
Thanks again for taking the time to write a review.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
