Ogre is a system that do not use classes or general levels and is loosely based on the OGC system. The rules are complex allowing players to create a wide variety of characters, but complex does not necessarily means complicated.

Open: You can freely use the rules and modify them as you like as long that you respect the license. Note: this rule system do not used the Creative Commons license, but the Open Gaming License since it is based on rule derived from a system using this license.

Open also means that this will hopefully develop as a collaborative work. If you want to contribute to the system, read the Contribution Guidelines

Generic: The system try to be as generic as possible so it can be use in most campaign settings whatever it's fantasy, modern or futuristic. It's also try to encompass most game style like realistic character or playing epic heroes.

Environment: Sound better than "system" for the acronym.
