What if you want a quick, easy-going, and fun RPG session that is a bit off the beaten track?Well, you can pick up something like Pyu Pyu!Space bounty hunter.. It’s all about them and about it … well, the dead man switch in space. A one-shot RPG game / adventure is now available on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
Pyu Pyu! Bounty Hunters in Space is a one-shot tabletop RPG for up to 7 players (and 1 GM). It uses the same system (slightly modified) as the Havoc Brigade by Grant Howitt. Thanks to Grant for kindly agreeing to allow it. (If you’ve never played the Havoc Brigade, check it out.)
This is a role-playing game with light rules and has everything you need to play (except dice and friends).
Friendly and one-shot target. This is not about deep-seated emotional turmoil and tortured introspection.
It’s also easy to pick up and play quickly, making it perfect for new gamers and online play.
It’s a game about explosions and massive battles and ray guns, and perhaps a load of laser swords. With all the preparations already done, it’s a great game to run at conventions or as an emergency pick-up game. It is built into the system.
This is a game designed to tell a particular story. A bounty hunter tracks a target in a sci-fi fantasy western.
One player acts as the gamemaster and controls the settings and all non-player characters in it. Other players take on the role of a bounty hunter squad, a rough bunch of dangerous missions.
Since all the characters are pre-generated, the GM needs to distribute the characters at the beginning of the session, allowing players to choose their favorite character. Some sample character sheets are shown below.
The campaign has exceeded its funding goals (they didn’t ask for exactly more, like some others these days) and have 13 days left.
