From Othenar Wiki

Othenar is a fantasy game created by Loreshaper Games. Built on a custom system, it integrates a core die alongside a trait die and a skill modifier for most rolls, allowing for characters to develop freely along Paths that provide more flexibility than a traditional class-based system while allowing for characters to have clear roles and defined archetypes.
