PAIR O’ DICE ROLE-PLAYING GAME KICKSTARTER

For over five years, the Pair O’ Dice Role-Playing Game concept has been rolling around in my head (pun intended). It’s finally time to roll the dice — so to speak.

The Pair O’ Dice Role-Playing Game is designed to be played with only a standard set of dice — two six-sided dice. No pouch of various polyhedrons needed here. Just swipe a pair of good ol’ fashion dice out of one of the board games tucked away in the linen closet. And while the dice required are minimum, the game itself is not limited. The POD RPG utilizes variations of familiar mechanics of old school role-playing games, while at the same time minimizing a lot of the crunch that can sometimes get in the way of playing a good story.

The Pair O’ Dice Role-Playing Game is not a “story telling” game. It’s a bonafide role-playing game with all of the elements that players like: character attributes, skill checks, combat, and of course… dice rolling. There may be more “realistic” role-playing game systems out there, but is that why you really play role-playing games? The POD RPG system takes a more cinematic approach for more thrills and chills — which is why you play role-playing games in the first place. Right?

The Pair O’ Dice Role-Playing Game is perfect for the one-off spur of the moment game (because someone in the group didn’t show up or the game master is unprepared) or even an ongoing campaign that doesn’t rely on the trappings of cumbersome rules and components.

This is a very short Kickstarter campaign. In fact, it ends on Tuesday, March 21st at 3:45 PDT. So… If you’re interested don’t delay. And did I mention that you can get the basic guide book (PDF) for only two bucks? Not only that, but this campaign is offering the opportunity to get every Pair O’ Dice Role-Playing Game product produced and published by GeekPunk Games until the end of time for one low price of $12.

CROSSWELL: JUNCTION TO ADVENTURE

Now available at DriveThruRPG.com and RPGNow.com

Crosswell: Junction To Adventure

Time to get out of the dungeon and enjoy the pleasures of rural living…

Crosswell: Junction to Adventure offers twelve establishments and locations, each with unique characters and stories, found at the crossroads of two well-traveled routes used by adventurers seeking fortune and glory.

Crosswell is a small hamlet nestled within a minor grove of trees in central Gondra. The natural progression of travelers between the more dominant settlements of Gondra developed two perpendicular roads that converged at the location of a natural spring. The crossing of the two trade routes, the presence of a water supply, and the cover of the small woodland provided a logical choice for a settlement.

Crosswell: Junction to Adventure is for use with any role-playing system. While designed with a fantasy flare, with a bit of tinkering the establishments presented here can be used for any role-playing game setting–futuristic, post-apocalyptic, etc. Since Crosswell is a generic role-playing aid, no game system-specific statistics are provided for non-player characters or situations. General descriptive terms are provided to aid game masters in determining how to best fit the provided material into their own game.
