The Monsters Are Our Heroes is an RPG set in a modern-day America powered by gas and lightning. It’s modern technology spliced with the “mad science” of the early 1900s.
Classic monsters are real and good fights evil. Created by Bloat Games, The Monsters Are Our Heroes was initially intended to a PDF product only. It launched in September 2020 and has done well enough for Eric to turn to the Make 100 campaign on Kickstarter.
There’s a catch. The Make 100 campaign on Kickstarter is about ONLY making 100 copies of a thing. The 100 print copies of The Monsters Are Our Heroes intended for the US and Canada have already sold out.
There’s a loophole, of sorts. There are still dozens of copies intended for “international”, which will ship anywhere in the world.
Both pledge tiers on TMAOH are $10 (plus shopping) and have an estimated delivery of May 2021.
The zine includes the core mechanic, benefit and hindrance rules, advantages and disadvantages, attributes, luck, hit points and dice, levelling up, combat, weapons and a bestiary.
If you miss out on the Kickstarter you can always get The Monsters Are Our Heroes from DriveThruRPG as a PDF.
