On Halloween, Daring Entertainment announced their first foray into Fate Core, with the Daring Comics RPG. Why am I passing this along to you? In no small part because I'll be taking a hand in this on the editorial side.
From Daring Entertainment's Website:
Daring Entertainment is pleased to announce its first Fate product: the Daring Comics Roleplaying Game!
Heroes battle villains through the streets and skies. Debris from stray energy beams and super-tough bodies covers city blocks. Cars, streetlights, dumpsters, and crumbled buildings become makeshift weapons flung around like baseballs.
From megalomaniacs dreaming of using their extraordinary power to rule the world, to dictators who believe their vision of the future is the best course for humanity, only those heroes who have dedicated their gifts to the defense of mankind stand in their way.
In Daring Comics, those heroes are you!
Designed with the award-winning Fate rules from Evil Hat Productions, and using the strengths of the Open Gaming License, Daring Comics provides complete rules for roleplaying your own super-hero campaign.
The only thing you need to play is the Daring Comics Roleplaying Game!
The book uses clear step-by step examples for how the players and GMs work together as a group to create not only the individual player-characters, but everything from character subplots, rogues galleries, and even city and super-group creation. The game covers all aspects of super-heroes, from gritty, street based vigilantes, to mystical masters, to high-tech wonders, and even refugees from alien worlds.
Daring Comics doesn't just provide you with the rules for playing super-heroes in the popular Fate system. Also included in the line-up is a separate campaign setting book detailing the twin cities of Sentinel City and New York, which provides you with full-on tools, stories, a robust roster of heroes and villains, and ready-made archetypes to begin playing immediately.
But even using the ready-made campaign setting doesn't mean your characters are playing second-string. We even provide you with tools for deconstructing the provided heroic teams as part of the campaign creation process, and placing your own group as the premier heroes of the setting!
Daring Comics brings comic books to your Fate gaming table, whether you are new to role-playing games, new to Fate, or a veteran.
The Daring Comics Kickstarter launches early 2014. In the meantime, keep an eye on the Daring Entertainment website beginning November 15th for bi-weekly development journals which reveal more details about the product line, and come visit us at the Daring Entertainment Forums to post your questions and join in the discussion.
