OK. Yeah I mentioned this briefly on the podcast but I figured what the heck. How about another little shout out. Because yes I do have a soft for Urban Fantasy. And this one has me excited. Yeah another one.
Let me give you a little run down on the system. It’s old-school inspired. It’s uses descending AC but not in the way you’re probably thinking. Attack roll are d20+Ability Mod+Attack Bonus+AC. Yes plus AC. So low AC is better. You need a 20 to hit. Pretty simple for the new folks to understand that whole descending AC thing. Skills. Yep got those. IHMO, you really need those for modern settings. But just like the old school Thief, they are percentile based. Weapon damage. Oh that’s a d6. So very White Box. Oh yeah and class and levels.
So what about setting? It looks to be pretty generic urban fantasy/monster hunters. A good thing they are doing is spelling out options for how gritty or cinematic you want the play to be.
I don’t have any insider info but hey, they did release a very simple and preliminary quick start. So what are still doing here? Go check out the Kickstarter.
