Hybrid (stylized HYBRID) is a role playing game created by "C". The "game" is said to correctly model physical reality, and originated from a series of "disjointed" posts by the author on a Usenet board. Hybrid consists of over 500 different and non-sequential rules, many of them utilizing references to pop culture and politics, cross-references to other rules (existent or not) and even other completely different RPG's, equations with undefined variables, and other random content. The version numbering system is also non-sequential, version 0.21 is considered newer than 0.34. An RPGnet reviewer declared Hybrid to be "unmitigated nonsense", and the game is also ranked as the 2nd worst RPG on the site.[1]

Rules[edit]

Hybrid's rules contain numerous references to other outside content or/& to other different or/& other rule[s] inside his tri-stat rpg. An excerpt from Rule #15 (below):[1]

RULE # 15: VERSION # = [{(YEAR - 2000)^(1/2)}/10] = [{(2009-2000)^(1/2)}/10] = [{9^(1/2)}/10] = [3/10] = 0.3 = VERSION # 0.3; location of the rules is @ : http://hybrid-rpg.blogspot.com/ [1]
