Slugblaster | Kickflip Over a Quantum Centipede


This is Slugblaster

In the small town of Hillview, teenage hoverboarders sneak into other dimensions to explore, film tricks, go viral, and get away from the problems at home. It’s dangerous. It’s stupid. It’s got parent groups in a panic. And it’s the coolest thing ever.

This is Slugblaster. A table-top rpg about teenagehood, giant bugs, circuit-bent rayguns, and trying to be cool.

Welcome to Hillview

It doesn’t have a movie theatre. It doesn’t have a Turbo Taco. But it has a gas station, a curling rink, fourteen churches, and some of the thinnest spacetime fabric on the planet. Thin enough for a growing, underground subculture of resourceful teenagers to hack through into the vibrant planescape of exotic and dangerous worlds just beyond.

Who Do You Want to Be?

Will you be a gutsy rich kid with a modified reality cannon? A chill loser with a lovable robot sidekick and strict parents? A meta-dimensional princess with a negafriction katana? Mix and match aesthetic, home life, personality, and signature devices to craft your character.

What Do You Want to Do?

Blow off school and sesh the abandoned mall in Vastiche. Get the Miper sponsorship by speed-running Calorium. Salvage power crystals from the mossy, decommissioned gundam in the Golden Jungle. Make waves by sneaking into Quahalia without a logic binder. Crash the hottest party in Popularia.

Just make sure you can get home before the demi-plane melts, or a metasaur eats your face, or Rescue scoops you up and hauls you back to the decontamination facility. Or, you know, before your mom finds out and sends you away to troubled youth camp.

The System

Slugblaster uses a stripped-down version of the Forged in the Dark engine, modified to power looking cool, doing tricks, circuit-bending gear, getting sponsorships, getting in trouble, hoverboarding away from monsters, and fast-paced laser-fantasy action in general.

  • Punch the turbo on your signature device to build dice pools quickly by ticking off boost boxes.
  • Push your luck to try to earn Style Points with any action, adding a nose-grab to your jump over the acid flats, or saying something witty before punching a robot.
  • Avoid slams and other problems by just saying so and then gaining a trouble point. As trouble points build, so does the threat of serious, adventure-ending personal disaster. Dimensional peelback. A broken ankle. Bad news from home.
  • After each run you’ll get to “shop for scenes”, spending accumulated points to trigger interesting events and arcs for your character. You might spend two style to get invited to a party, or four style to gain a new special ability. You’ll spend trouble, too. One point to get yelled at by your dad, three to get your heart broken. You and your friends can also pool your points to unlock big team-based events such as sponsorships, run opportunities, and inter-crew drama.

If you've been losing faith in TTRPGs this game will cure you! Received my digital copy from the kickstarter and it's amazing! Buy this game, you won't regret it. It's a great evolution of FiTD mechanics, unique world building, and some of the best player and GM advice I've ever read. Plus it's F9 beautiful!

Very seldom does a game come along that captures a fresh vibe I haven't seen before that makes me want to drop whatever campaign I'm in and run this instead. Slugblaster is one of those games for me.

Even John Harper called it "Fantastic"

I purchased this game on another platform and gave it a very deserved ★★★★★ there. My ability to shill for it is functionally limitless.

Buy this book!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
