The SCP is a creative commons licensed community project. It’s “documentation” of a secretive and wealthy organisation that uses technology to keep us safe from sinister supernatural creatures.
It’s X-Files meets Creepypasta and its funded many times over on Kickstarter. Jason Keech asked for $2,000 to succeed, and with nearly a month left, he has about $8,500 in pledges. You can see the latest tally or join in via the project page.
According to Keech, the rule system is neither lite nor complex and sits in that goldilocks zone between the two. That said, it was created when Kreech got fed up with games with too much fluff, and it is a variation on 26 Letter Publishing’s previous CreepyPasta RPG.
The drama cards in the SCP RPG are new and allow players to take over the narrative for a while.
Access Levels are part of the book, and, should you desire, you can restrict your own reading to the appropriate level your character has attained in The Foundation to preserve the mystery.
There’s a Discord for questions and fans.
A pledge of $15 is enough for an SCP RPG PDF copy while stepping up to $25 will get you physical cards as well as a digital copy of the rules.
The SCP hardcover, with cards and a PDF, unlocks at $50 and there are higher tiers available for people who want signed copies.
The expected delivery date is May 2021, which isn’t that far away. The book is written, and the Kickstarter will add art.
