. At this point in time it is more of an idealized concept than an organization--a means to coordinate Organized Play type games across multiple companies and campaigns. SAGE is beginning by providing a set of meta-game rules that can be used for any Role Playing Game (RPG) in an Organized Play or Living Campaign format, regardless of rules system. SAGE Campaigns are not required to use these rules, they are just available as a reference.
The purpose of an Organized Roleplaying Campaign (ORC
) is to provide a framework where players can participate in a single campaign that is orchestrated globally, allowing for player movement from table to table across the globe, sharing time and experiences with old and new players alike. ORC games are not restricted to large events, it can be the same group of players every week, or it can be played by different players at monthly gamedays. The design of an ORC is meant to include both formats of play.
For the immediate term, SAGE offers a library of useful OGL based documents:
Organized Roleplaying Campaign Rules -- The SAGE ORC rules were built after considering many issues involved with Living Campaigns, Organized Play, Home Play and other forms of Event Game Play with Role Play Games. It is influenced by many of the Living Campaigns including the successful Living Greyhawk and Living Spycraft.
