I've known R Scott Taylor for a number of years. His Folio series has been consistently very good to amazing in quality and content, and he certainly knows old-school gaming. This is why I am in for the $80 "Kitchen Sink in Print" level for the FAST Core Rulebook Kickstarter. Sure, I don't need yet another RPG, but I do need a streamlined multi-genre RPG. I no longer can parse GURPS like I used to when I was younger ;)
FAST is a multi-genre tabletop RPG that streamlines game play for both gamemasters and players alike. The purpose of FAST is to help over-burdened users create and play fun scenarios without hours or prep time. The system revolves around a single die, the D10, and character creation and updating is made to reflect the ease of first generation RPGs in which multiple books, massive skill trees, and weighty feats and additions didn't quickly send character builds out of control. At its core, FAST is about quick fun, without the headaches of overly 'crunchy' and rules heavy systems.
