Today’s spotlight is on HiBRiD/Ite’ Gamine Engine v2.2: “Big Showdown in Little Canyonside.” HiBRiD/Ite’ is an RPG created by event GM Hujraad Johaansen and has been featured in various iterations at past Gamedays.
“You thought the Kumi-te was gonna be tough…..wait til the Goth Kids get a hold of you! Choose a butt-kicker from some of the cheesiest 80’s action movies, lock & load your biga** guns, warm up those fists & feet of fury, & let’s get Cinematic! Bring a d20 & a desire to get macho! This game is based (loosely) on 80’s (and 90’s) action movies. Over the top action is the name of the game. The system used for this event, the HiBRiD/Ite’ Gaming Engine, favors heroic action over number crunching, fast combat and action resolution over rules-lawyering, and only requires a single 20-sided die to play. If you are familiar with FUDGE, FADAD, SRD, or any d20-based system, than you already know the rules; you just need to let go and have fun!”
Today’s spotlight is on Exploding Kingdoms: “Honey Hill’s World-Famous Bakery”.
Exploding Kingdoms describes itself as “gonzo tactical rolepalying” — “Where a Pixie wielding an Enormous Sword and an Explodomancer Golem made out of Blades can fight Time Assassin Tyrannousaruses on top of an airship.” Based on D&D 4e, “XK” is a design by veteran Gameday GM and Forge Midwest hostess Willow Palacek. If you want to step on up and get your game on, this is the game in which to do it.
Over the next few days I’m going to shine the spotlight on a few of the events we have lined up. Today’s event: Pentra, “Love in the House of Swords.”
Pentra is a creation of event GM Sabe Jones, who also designed Burning Rose and is writing for Exploding Kingdoms. Pentra
is based on the critically-acclaimed, card-based RPG Itras By, which you can read more about here: http://itrasby.com/about/
Here’s the event description for “Love in the House of Swords”:
“The matron of the powerful House Ranya has retired her position, passing leadership to her proud but inexperienced daughter. Now suitors come seeking the scion’s attention, some with love in their hearts, some with murder. Whose ambitions will come to pass when swords glint and fire falls?”
“Pentra, an anthropomorphic animal fantasy in the style of Armello, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Redwall, etc., with a fast, collaborative system inspired by Itras By.”
