Imagine a world where war walkers and supertanks contend on the battlefield, rocket fighters duel high in the air, adventurers and super-spies battle the Nazis and superscience changes the face of the world on a daily basis. This is the world of Gear Krieg, a roleplaying game of two-fisted pulp action from the creators of Heavy Gear, the Jovian Chronicles and Tribe 8! This book features:
The simple and elegant Silhouette rule system, a highly acclaimed game engine that uses the classic six-sided dice;
Complete roleplaying rules, a detailed world background and a rich setting for daring adventures;
Extensive guidelines and tips for adventuring in the Modern Age;
A story generator to help jump-start the game sessions in the proper style;
Reality Distortion Levels that allow you to play the exact style of campaigns you want -- gritty WWII action or high-action Saturday morning serial;
A rule interface to merge roleplaying with the tactical wargame (not included).
Whether it'd be intrigues under the burning sun of North Africa, the duels of a daring rocket fighter squadron or the exploits of a group of dastardly misfit Marines in the jungle hell of the Pacific, adventure is sure to be found everywhere you look!
Gear Krieg: the RPG is a complete game -- no other manual is required to play. You will need a few six-sided dice, pen, paper and 2-6 players aged 12 and above.
