ABS: Solo Gaming Engine - flexible version It contains 1d6, 1d8, Fate, Fudge, 1d10, 1d12, 2d6, 3d6, 1d20, 4d6 JAGS, and 1d100 columns and modifiers.

After test playing and looking over the ABS12 Solo Game Engine yesterday, it came to me that maybe a list of synonyms for the main engine terms might be helpful. It might help explain the different results using different wording. When I write I try to show the decision points using actions and descriptions, rather than noticeable transitional sentences and conjunctions. But still these concepts are underlying those story actions and descriptions.
