QuestWorlds is a roleplaying rules engine suitable for you to play in any genre.It is a traditional roleplaying game in that there is a GM and players. The players play characters, each guided by the internal thoughts of their character as to what decisions they make, and the GM plays the world, including non-player characters (NPCs) and abstract threats. It features an abstract, conflict-based, resolution method and scalable, customizable, character descriptions. Designed to emulate the way characters in fiction face and overcome challenges, it is suitable for a wide variety of genres and play styles. It is a rules-light system that facilitates beginning play easily, and resolving conflicts in play quickly.

From QuestWorlds SRD

No roleplaying game has had such an influence on me than HeroQuest roleplaying system designed by Robin D. Laws. QuestWorlds is the long anticipated SRD (System Reference Document) for HeroQuest allowing it more easily to build your own roleplaying products based on the abstract conflict resolution system.

Narrative rules light games have been gaining traction following the success of such systems as Fate and Powered by the Apocalypse. Combat rules do not take half of the pages in the rule books as resolution is more abstract and roleplaying games start to focus on other aspects of playing.

QuestWorlds works with any genre. Really. The important part is the story you will be telling together. The laws of storytelling work are you telling the story of World War II or adventures of the Greek gods. QuestWorlds bring out the story obstacles your characters will face and provides a resolution mechanism for those. There are some other advanced mechanics (like community resources) but the basic contest resolution gives enough tools to let the story advance.
