Space Otter Publishing has a generous 30-page quickstart for DecKarnage.
The download includes an English and Italian version, character sheets and demos. It’s colour, looks fun, and already picking up high review star ratings at DriveThruRPG even though it’s been out for less than a week.
There isn’t a full DecKarnage yet, at least not on DriveThruRPG, and this is Space Otter Publishing’s first upload.
In the fantasy, fairy-tale world of absurd characters, characters are misfits who must raid in between hero and monster clashes. The PCs aren’t the cool heroes.
Do you know the concept of “social imagination” by Jung or “Hyperuranium” by Plato? No?
Okay, okay, you are in the space that someone calls Skrap, a meeting point between dream lands, fairy tales, stories, ideas and everything human imagination can generate.
A world of bright colors, where the waters of the streams sing sweet, the gentle breezes of the north caress the green hills, the cities rise in melodious harmony with the surrounding nature…
And where everything, every single thing, really, would like to see you dead. Maybe he can’t kill you, but he still wants to.
The Tragic “Dunno”
It is said that Skrap was once a land in perfect balance, where peace reigned supreme and people lived in harmony with each other. Only there were no people, and this “age” lasted a millisecond.
Then the Dunno came.
“I Dunno where to put this defeated villain,” the gods in the universe said.
“I Dunno what to do with this hero, after they all lived happily ever after,” a storyteller whimpered.
“What about these hundred hungry goblins? I Dunno where to place them,” retorted a random Destiny, with his hands full of green creatures.
And so Skrap became the home of the Dunno, the place where every universe overthrew its used heroes, exhausted villains, monsters to be disposed of.
In practice, the trash bin of Hyperuranium; the dump of the social imagination.
Feeling at home already, huh?
Space Otter says the game plays old school, random, silly and full of fluffy violence.
