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.
