Marauder Inc has put up their RPG Kickstarter.
A modern tactical combat roleplaying game where you can build your own character with Marauder “Gun-Runners” extensive line of customizable action figures. As you build your own figure using Marauder “Gun-Runners” wide assortment of modular accessories, your build choices determine your character’s options for attack and defense. In between missions, you can reconfigure your character’s build based on the type of operation with many different accessory options available on the Marauder “Gun-Runners” site.
The game is run using the new Tactical RPG game system that is flexible, fast, and fun to play.
In campaign mode, the game is built around a game master, a “CO,” who leads play in a typical RPG fashion. Each of the players builds their character based on class templates. They can use any existing figure or custom build their character on the Marauder Gun-Runner site. The players’ characters are a squad of highly trained operatives—the Marauder Task Force! The CO takes them through each mission and manages the team through their downtime.
In skirmish mode, the game is a small battle between two opposing squads. Each player (or teams of players) fields their own squad and each team has specific win conditions, based upon the scenario agreed upon. Some may feature two squads balanced by point build, whereas others may not be equally balanced but a weaker force will be granted easier to obtain objectives.
The intent of the system is to simulate a tactical combat system similar to turn-based computer games. You will manage action points and make shots that factor in distance, conditions, and weapon choice. This game system will be available for other licensed properties in the future.
By using the Weapon and Armor cards, you can easily keep track of what dice to roll for both the campaign mode and the skirmish mode.
