I was lucky enough to playtest this game, and it was so flexible and fun. The mechanics are simple and moody enough that, even if you're not into the excellently dripping aesthetic, it can easily be hacked for any setting/genre where people operate under unclear orders, harboring hope & rebellion in their hearts.
A beautiful book! Clear and seemingly effortless cartooning full of empathy and pain. I've been a fan since the Sea Urchin days, and Knetzger just keeps getting better. You deserve to treat yourself: read this, read the first issue, and then go track down Bug Boys, Sea Urchin, and all the Laura Knetzger comics on Zeal.
The beautiful art and maps are worth the price alone! Even if you don't play traditional fantasy RPGs, the images and ideas in this zine are inspiring for anyone looking for some fantasy, some whimsy, and some spooky.
Unfortunately, both my printer and my post office burned down in the recent uprisings. But if there's demand for it, maybe I can get someone else to print & distribute it. I'll start poking around!
Yeah, I never want to deal with DrivethruRPG again, but the one thing they have over itchio is easy revenue sharing. And they've gotten some big projects from it! Uncaged, for instance. I'd love to see a big itchio-first RPG anthology.
The adventure is so clearly and compellingly laid out! And the backgrounds are great. If someone's new to Troika! and looking for first steps past the basic rules, this is an excellent place to look. (Great for Troika! veterans as well, obviously.)
Starkly clear in layout and function—it's almost immediately usable at the table regardless of system. It's peppered with moments of sly humor, shocking violence, and very human emotion. It tells the stories of gods, humans, animals, and the things in between without taking agency from players and their characters.
Gonna run Tunnel Goons at Big Bad Con, so I'm headed to the library now to print some of these off. Thanks for making them! I bought one of your other games as a way of "tipping" you; excited to look through that too.
