Big Robot is publishing the Teeth RPG as a comedy RPG with a dark touch, using a rejigged Forged in the Dark ruleset.
Teeth could be described as The Witcher meets Jane Austin; the campaign asks for £5,000 and has raised that amount several times. The creative team is Marsh Davies and Jim Rossignol, the founder of Rock Paper Shotgun and the computer game company Big Robot, writer and illustrator from Minecraft Mojang, PC Gamer and Edge magazine. There’s more to find out.
That’s an experienced team, but Teeth is their first tabletop RPG Kickstarter, so they keep complications at bay with clever ideas such as playing safe with stretch goals.
The RPG suits 3 to 6 players, and is set in a place known as the Vale of Deluth, which has been tarnished by an alchemical disaster nearly 50 years ago.
Hunters, specially trained killers, trackers, and academicians, whose job it is to drive back the monstrous things that lurk in the Value and, more importantly, to ensure that the trade in occult artefacts remains unimpeded and the English Crown’s coffers remain full, are among those few who enter the game. They do so to protect the lucrative trade in such items.
Each PC has a secret task, though.
TEETH is a setting and ruleset, written by Jim Rossignol and Marsh Davies, and bound into a fat book of 320 pages. Within you will find 180-ish pages describing the places, people and beasts of the Vale of the Deluth—including many maps and illustrations. It’s a meaty setting, carefully threaded with intrigues for players to follow, and peppered with prompts for the GM.
At £20, backers will get digital extras and the core version of the rules in digital.
However, for just £22, three previous modules are included.
Backers splashing £35 or more, the hardback of the RPG is also added. The top tier is £65, which adds physical zines of previous modules and a double-sided A2 poster map.
Big Robot suggest the digital game is due in June, so soon! The hardbackis due just a bit later in October.
