Ghost Runner: The 9th Layer

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

This RPG was created for the 2011 24 Hour RPG Contest.  It is a mash-up of the two popular films Ghostbusters and Bladerunner.

It is the year 2099 and humanity is about to pass into the next century, but doom looms over everyone’s heads at the prophecy made by the internet hacker Dante – Humanity has reached the 9th Layer, they have made the ultimate betrayal.  Now, as a Ghost Runner, you the players must track down rogue Ghosts, pulled from the afterlife and embedded into cybernetic SHELS which are used to hold these spirits to the world.  Set against a not-so-different-but-still-dystopian future, be sure to bring your Flying Car.

This game uses the SotC SRD and features the use of Fate Points and Aspects.  It also uses the new DOOM 8 d8 Rules Lite system.

Alone in the Woods

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Alone in the Woods is a mashup of two famous movies-Home Alone and Robin Hood: Men In Tights.  It was made for the 2011 24 Hour RPG Contest.  The game uses a very simple version of the d20 system, but has been modified heavily; the game features the LoL mechanic, a comedic stimulation mechanic.  The game focuses on the children of Robin Hood’s Merry men, who are left to defend Sherwood Forest from Keeton, The Sheriff of Nottingham’s henchmen.
