Gaming with Godot is a compendium of fifty tabletop RPG supplements – playbooks, scenarios, rules modules, and other miscellanea – by 48 different authors, with a catch: none of the games the material is written for actually exist. Entries run the gamut from transdimensional diners, to polyamorous starships, to a character class which can only be taken by a character who has killed God, each one offering a tiny glimpse of what tabletop roleplaying might look like in a world very slightly askew of our own.
Gaming with Godot can be downloaded for free via itch.io:
“Tell me something about yourself?” Really, Ziggy? Come on, how about YOU tell ME something about myself. I’m an open book. Like, literally though, you can read all about me in my autobiography, not that this is a shameless plug or anything. But anyway, fine, let’s talk Ruth Dzeng. My business card says Political Comedy Show Host – no quotation marks on any of those words, thank you very much. The beautiful wackos who watch my show go wild when I talk shit about politics. They love me. Never give me shit either, not even for smoking like a tire fire. Nasty habit? Sure. Better to get lung cancer than get addicted to Black Lace, go cyberpsycho and have MaxTac put you outta your misery. Or even worse – go sober. Ugh. Sanctimonious gonks think they’re gonna live forever. Here’s an infoflash: unless you got enough eddies pouring out your ass to Secure Your Soul, I'll see you down at the columbarium with the rest of us. Before that happens though, I’ll see ya on the airwaves, Night City!
