Year Zero Nano (YZN) is an even lighter off-shoot of Year Zero Mini -- both of which are designed to provide lightweight frameworks for quickly jumping into your favourite setting.
Where other rules-light games might emphasise action or heroics, YZN is more down to earth - telling stories of a more gritty and relatable nature.
SIMPLE D6 DICE POOL SYSTEM
Using the Year Zero Engine as its basis (covered by an OGL from Free League Publishing), YZN uses a pool of standard six-sided dice, but differs slightly by looking for both 5s or 6s in the rolled dice pool.
SUITABLE FOR ONE-SHOTS OR CAMPAIGNS
While YZN is best experienced in one-shots, conventions, or short campaigns (around a dozen sessions), it's also suitable for longer-term play.
YZN is inspired by a whole host of games. Whilst its core is based on the award-winning Tales From the Loop, it is also sprinkled with a bit of FATE Core, Abenteurspiel, and the FKR.
The PDF is provided as a "phone PDF" -- designed for seamless vertical scrolling on mobile phones. It is both bookmarked and fully hyperlinked.
YZN has 20 pages (1 title page, 15 pages of content, and 4 pages of OGL) formatted as a phone PDF (4.25 x 6.875 in). It weighs in it at roughly 2,800 words (ignoring the title page and OGL text).
