|Beautiful, shiny box sets...|
Next week sees the launch of the Kickstarter to fund production of the highly-anticipated new edition of the venerable Top Secret roleplaying game, from its original creator - Merle M Rasmussen.
Here's the video for the Kickstarter, which lets you know a bit about the game:
Straight off the bat, I love the fact that it comes in a box set, but it also sounds like they've addressed one of my issues with the game mechanics (presumably somehow using the 'dice as stats' method).
In our current campaign, the way the mechanics are designed often makes our adventures feel less like James Bond and more like Scarecrow & Mrs King... where we're all Mrs King.
The impression I get from this is that player-characters will be competent agents (at least mechanically, how you play them is up to you!)
The launch of the Kickstarter is scheduled for 10am Pacific time (6pm in the UK) on Tuesday (June 27).
