"Instant Fantasy: Dark Roast" is the official revised version of our Instant Fantasy RPG system (Think Instant Fantasy 2.0).

Instant Fantasy is a rules-lite RPG system that is both easy to pick up and quick to run adventures.  Character creation takes a few minutes at most and the core rules are digestible for players and game masters.

Dark Roast is still short and sweet when it comes to page count (only 3 pages of rules), but contains fixes and balance patches that help round out the game from the previous version.


  • D6 System (All You Need are 3D6).
  • 6 Playable Races.
