Welcome to Phyrfight™, the world's first Phase-based™
tactical simulator role playing game (RPG). This game has
been designed by people with real-world experience to produce
a realistic tactical combat RPG. Best of all, it's free.
All you need is a few pens, some paper, and an open mind.
Pen and Paper
Since this is a pen and paper role-playing game, you don't
have to buy anything to play. No books, no hardware, no software,
nothin'. We give you everything you need right here on the
website and we wont even charge you for that. You don't really
even need to own a computer. Just go to the library, log on
to a public terminal, and print out everything you need to
play. If you can find a pencil and some paper, you have everything
you need. A twenty-sided die would be nice to have but in
a pinch you can just write 1 through 20 on separate pieces
of paper, toss them into a plastic cup, and voila, you have
a number generator.
Phyrfight™ is a reality-based tactical combat simulation
RPG. It's intended to reproduce, as closely as possible, real
world consequences based on actual battle-tested strategy
and tactics. The game play has been extensively play-tested,
compared to real world situations, and then tweaked to produce
a realistic outcome. What all that means is that if you get
killed in the game you probably would have died in real life.
First Person Shooter tactics definitely will not work in Phyrfight™.
One beta tester remarked "It's so cool to see these Quake
Arena and Counterstrike bad asses get killed in the first
five minutes." You realize they were dead before they
started. It really brings home that "Art of War"
stuff. This game is about planning, teamwork, and establishing
and maintaining a tactical advantage.
Phyrfight™ is different from most pen and paper role
playing games. It deals with all aspects of combat, most of
which are not considered "appropriate" in today's
allegedly "correct" society. So be prepared to be
labeled in all manner of negative ways by paranoid types.
Some people are so afraid that, despite the fact this game
is played with only pen and paper, several students have been
threatened with suspension for playing it in school lunchrooms.
Perhaps the game's motto "Shoot, Move, Communicate™"
will give you an idea of what Phyrfight™ is all about.
Also be advised that some schools will send you home if you
wear the T-shirt with guns on it.
We created Phyrfight™ because we wanted to play a game
that was based on the real world and incorporated our own
experiences in tactical situations, as well as the experiences
of our mentors in the Law Enforcement and Special Forces community.
Phyrfight™ is meant to be cooler and faster to play
than any other RPG -- we think it is. We play it all the time
and have a blast. Try it and if you don't agree, we'll give
you your money back -- oh wait it's FREE -- so if you don't
like it, you can just get stuffed! How's that for customer
service? Actually we are constantly working on improving the
realism and game play, so if you have any constructive criticism
we want to hear it.
Enjoy Phyrfight™ and remember, in the real world if
you quit, you die.
