The RizerGS game system...
Currently, we are playtesting my own system, RizerGS (short for Rizer Game System), for Timeon Rizer, along with several other games our group runs. It's fast becoming a solid game system that's fun and easy to use, but has room to allow character growth. RizerGS has nothing to do with the D20 system — it's a system all it's own. RizerGS4 (that's 5th edition) is now in playtesting with two new game settings (fantasy and space opera), and should be available for download at the end of 2011 from my main RPG Zone.

Sources of inspiration and frustration...
Originally, we started with Dream Pod 9's excellent Silhouette system, but we veered so far off the game mechanics it made sense to find a more appropriate system for our needs. We gave it a good five years though, and DP9's games and artwork really helped give Timeon Rizer life – though it was an amalgam of games, novels, films, television and artwork that led to the Timeon Rizer universe itself. I have tried running Timeon Rizer using systems like GURPS and BESM, but both were scattered, confusing and my players hated them. That's when RizerGS sprang to life. It's perfect for our gaming needs and intended as a universal game system usable for any genre, not just Timeon Rizer.
