While having an ebook is nice (there’s the portability, the searchability, and other such things good about them), I guess I’m just a traditionalist. I like having an actual book in my hand when I’m gaming. For those of you that are like me who have been looking at Era: Hitman, the RPG where you’re a super-powered assassin, but have been wishing that it had a physical book, your prayers have been answered. They’re up on Kickstarter right now looking to get a paperback version printed.
From the campaign:
In this game, you are a hitman, an assassin who eliminates targets for anyone paying the right amount.
Whether your skill is stealth, approaching your enemies unseen, firing a bullet from a neighbouring rooftop, hacking automated defences or demolishing a building to eliminate everyone inside, you are always in demand. With the protection of the Guild, you need not fear retribution once you escape the scene of the crime – the scrubbers have your back. Every trace of you, every piece of camera footage, everyone who will testify that you were there will vanish without a trace.
All that falls to you is the kill itself and, in that, you’re an expert.
The campaign is well over its funding goal and still has 13 days left to go.
