It’s May. Are you planning Christmas already? No? That might because you’re not planning on kidnapping Santa like Lord Krampus is!
‘TWAS – The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas is a rules-lite RPG from Jonathan Green, designed to be picked up and played with very little preparation, where the players are toys trying to rescue Santa. There’s a preview of some toy character sheets below and you can check ‘TWAS’s progress on Kickstarter here.
TWAS is Green’s 11th Kickstarter, and he knows what he is doing. It’s early days, at the time of writing, with more than a month still on the clock to raise £3,250. He’s more than 10% of the way there.
A pledge of £15 gets you a PDF of the roleplaying game, and £23 gets you a coupon to print the book (at a reduced amount), a PDF, your name in the acknowledgements and themed digital wallpapers.
If you pledge in the first week then that £23 is reduced to £18 and that feels like a pretty good deal.
The game is inspired by Green’s TWAS the Krampus Night Before Christmas which is already funded and where all the spooky art comes from.
