Dungeons: The Dragoning 40,000 7th Edition

Quote
For ten thousand years, the Lady of Pain has silently ruled the city of Sigil, master of the hub of the Portal network despite the petty wars of the gods.

The city of Sigil is the largest metropolis in the Astral Sea, untold millions making sacrifices to sustain it and ensure the continued survival of their people in the face of a hostile multiverse.

From hundreds of Crystal Spheres, teeming with the Clueless and monsters, refugees and opressors alike come to find their place in a larger galaxy, to find treasure fame and fortune amongst the planes.

Beset on all sides by foes of such malice it would sear a man's soul to know but a fraction of their blasphemies, only the strongest and most ruthless survive. Foes from within and without seek to overthrow the Lady's rule, throwing themselves on the Throne of Blades in vain efforts to destroy in a moment the eons of her rule.

The Great Devourer comes from the Far Realm beyond the Astral Sea, driven to consume all before it and Ork savages surge from their barbaric empires to pillage and slaughter.

The vengeful Eldarin cite prophetic visions as they raid and destroy even their own cousins, and an ancient evil arises from tombs sealed at the dawn of creation.

In the grim darkness of the great wheel, there is only war.

A game that rips off so many tabletop games that it might just get sued.

An amalgamation of game rules that just sounds awesome.

An April Fools joke taken too far.

The core rulebook is here.

I am now in the process of creating my first character: a Werewolf Dragonborn, devout of Khorne, who specializes in wielding Laspistols and Katanas.



EDIT: In my stupor, I posted this in the RPPR forum. Someone should move it over to RPG board.

Hmm...

30 Days of Synnibarr may have just found a sequel...

I just read the brief bit before the introduction.  Sounds like this game set out to do what World of Synnibarr inadvertently did.

Thanks for sharing, definitely going to look into this more...

First I heard of this game was seeing it in the Gen Con 2011 forums.
It is going to be there.

And it sounds awesome.
I wish I was Tom.

Granted, you are now Tom.

I showed it around to my group and we all agreed that it must be played.
42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
If you can't fix it with duck tape you haven't used enough.
I intend to live forever -- so far, so good.

The Introduction is the best thing I've read in a while.

Played a couple sessions with my group. Pretty humorous system with tons of customization options, but highly exhaustive and exhausting. The "roll X keep Y" mechanic is somewhat unintuitive and tends to drag down the game. Funny for a Gamma World-style diversion game or two.
