Forecaster preview, Fear the Taste of Blood
It's been a bit. In that time we've released Fear the Taste of Blood, our asymetric rpg inspired by classic movie monsters. You can purchase the game digitally here or print-on-demand here.
Fear the Taste of Blood was also featured on the Gaming Shelf on io9!
The Fight Card Game Jam is rolling on with the initial deadline set for the end of the month (possibility of an extension does exist).
Our entry for the jam is going to be Forecaster: The Body You Share. It's a fighting roleplaying game of selves-discovery. You play an apprentice Forecaster, preparing to go on a journey to spar with opponents in preparation of your graduation ritual, where you'll open your singular self to a nature spirit and let them join in with you. You'll be a full blown Forecaster, able to physically spar with weather spirits and prevent natural disasters. If the ritual succeeds. The thing is, you suspect this may fail, as you are not one singular person. You are more than one.
The base rules of fights are the same as Transgender Deathmatch Legend but the way you meet opponents involves drawing from the deck, in a similar way to the Sol Survivor by W.H. Arthur. Instead of set characters you rotate roles and take turns telling the story of the whole system (meaning the game supports more than two players more innately than TDL)
It's a very personal game, about having to face the uncertainty of whether something you want and care about is going to work out like you hoped, but placed in a magical realist contemporary setting full of stylised fights and oddball characters.
It's out before the end of the month so watch this space!
