What is the War Within Roleplay Game? Let’s take a closer look

The players take control of a country. To help manage their lands they each have a country record sheet. They have Trusted Aides who they can send on missions to cement success. They are given or select a government type, and this exerts an influence over their decisions. If the players act in a way that seems opposed to the government type or questionable to the population then the people may rise up. In this way players receive Instability Points. Ten of these and the government falls to revolution and the player is deposed. But they can return to power and with the help of their Trusted Spies can influence and sway the population’s opinion of their new leader. This war within government is pitched in an open world where the players are compelled to respond to incidents and breaking news.

How War Within RPG Evolved

War Within our new roleplaying game is coming to Kickstarter next week and we have the notify me page here if you are interested in being alerted when it goes live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/drmgames/war-within-rpg-set-in-a-tense-cold-war-arena Firstly, What is War Within RPG?

RPG MAPS ZINE is here...

After the success of Rad Zone and that we have that largely finished, we have our new project RPG MAPS ZINE now live on Kickstarter. This is the beginning of a new series of zines focused around Maps and the Dark Realm Maps origins. We are I guess going back to what created DR Games by doing this. RPG Maps Zine is a new A5 product we have put together as a resource but also something to read and enjoy the setting. It features 10 highly detail maps that have descriptions and plot hooks. They are designed to be used in a range of RPG fantasy settings and with any number of roleplay systems. As a generic set of buildings, they draw upon a selection of references including historical and fantasy settings, such as medieval Europe and Middle Earth. You can inject these into any mission either as the main encounter space or an aside. These town buildings are great for crime style adventures or the launch into something grander, or a way of introducing an NPC. You can take a look here: h
