Legendary is my homebrew epic fantasy roleplaying game. It is an exercise in genre conventions and is less reliant on dice than virtually any system. There is a system within which metagaming is completely legitimate, allowing players whose characters are knowledgeable to have almost as much power over the setting as the GM, and players whose characters are well-connected to have the power to create NPC friends, teachers, and family members to serve the immediate needs of the character and her allies. The GM is therefore known as the Narrator, for while he or she has a great deal of power over the flow of the story, this power is far from absolute.
