Dead Halt Retro RPG Zine Up On Kickstarter

The new flavor of the season is RPG Zines. I've seen a bunch popping up lately and am going to be sharing a few with you here in the next couple stories. Starting out, we have Dead Halt, a retro-RPG Zine where players are trapped in a rather odd hotel. The zine is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Set in 1996, DEAD HALT is a TableTop Roleplaying Game where players will attempt to survive among the absurd technology and ridiculous mechanical creatures of a quirky megalithic Hotel.

Using a custom rules system utilizing regular six sided dice and playing cards, Dead Halt is a complete setting for cyberpunk-esque roleplaying. It was designed to be extremely quick to learn, easy to play, and narrative driving. It is a perfect game for one shots as well as for developing long term campaigns. Characters are created in game, and Game Masters can run it with little to no preparation. 

The campaign's more than 6x its funding goal, but with only 54 hours left to go.
