Political power and an isolated populace? Scandal never seemed so appealing.
The Colony was created by a coalition of Earth governments that advertised the project as a multi-national utopia. Now, after years of incompetence and disaster, the Colony is dying. You have been nominated to turn things around. While you were a celebrated expert on Earth, Mars is a different environment entirely. Good luck…
Grim fantasy meets the angst of indecision. Will you choose love, power, religion, allegiance, war, or betrayal?
Hero’s Banner: The Fury of Free Will is a fantasy roleplaying game with a razor sharp premise and elegant mechanics to match. Every character is faced with a choice between three mutually exclusive and world-changing paths to glory. Which will he choose, and what will he forever give up to achieve his goals?
In 20 minutes, you will come home to your too expensive apartment in the city, make a discovery of potentially violent implications, and do your best to avoid revealing the secrets that insulate your illusion of power and comfort. Or perhaps not. Perhaps you will simply do away with the complications. Perhaps they are not really complications after all. Take 20 minutes. Decide for yourself.
Clank is a brief roleplaying game, and my attempt to answer the question: How do you introduce someone to the concept of roleplaying?
Imagine if you could simply announce a character concept to your group and that would be enough – that would be character creation. Imagine if you could change your character at any point during the game. Imagine if you could buy the skills your character needs at the exact moment he needs them.
Now imagine that I’m not talking about a namby-pamby freeform storytelling game. That’s Persona.
If you have any questions, comments, or even criticisms, please feel free to email me (tim “at” tckroleplaying “dot” com). I also post on Google+ (sometimes talking things out with a group of people can lead to new ideas), and I’m on Twitter (@tckoppang). I would love to read about your experiences with any of my games. –Tim K
