This game system was the first RPG I ever played, so even though it hasn’t aged as gracefully as some games, I’m still fond of TMNT & Other Strangeness. So last year, I ran a 2 part game using this system, gleefully maintaining all the quirks of the Palladium rules. The players are all part of the mutant animal underground, living in the forgotten and abandoned parts of The Big Apple. Of course, trouble has a way of finding them…
Pantheon is a GMless game developed by Robin Laws and uses a unique narrative cage match system. Special guests Patrick and Karee match wits with some regulars in the Game of Gods. In the beginning there was nothing. Then there were gods. And they were dicks. And then all kinds of crazy shit happened. Find out what kind of creation myth the mad minds behind RPPR can dream up!
When insomniacs spend too long without sleep, they either die or find a way to the Mad City when the clock strikes thirteen. Several desperate insomniacs facing great problems find themselves in a world with boys made of paper, constables made of clocks and much worse. Don’t Rest Your Head is a game developed by Fred Hicks, so if you like this AP, check the game out.
In the chromed future wireless Internet access does not exist but full conversion cyborgs are commonplace. Computers Cyberdecks have less memory and processing power than an iPhone but can be used to hack military data fortresses in ‘the grid’ and making a mistake can kill the unlucky netrunner. This is the past future of Cyberpunk, the classic R. Talsorian RPG and home to Lady Gaga 2.0 and her entourage of sociopathic cybered and coked up killers.
There’s a mission to recover a suitcase from some dude in a hotel, but honestly it’s all about headshots, cybernetics and drugs. Oh and the nauesator.
Inspired by Top Shelf’s recent April Fool’s joke, I ran a one shot game on this Cinco de Mayo using Wushu, a rules light open ended system. The player characters were all iconic 80s heroes, including Doc Brown, Optimus Prime, Jack Burton, MacGuyver, and B.A. Baracus. They must stop Scarface and his army of Lost Boy vampires from taking over the world.
