Sometimes, you just can find anyone that wants to GM the game. Let's face it, it's a lot of work. So, having a game that takes the GM out of the situation can be handy. Facing the Titan is one such game. Players take on the role of Companions looking to overthrow the Titan that rules the world. Will you be successful? The campaign is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Facing the Titan is a GM-less roleplaying game in which you’ll play as the Companions, the ones who will face the Titan that reigns over the world. It’s a story-game set for one-shot games. Each game will feature a different cast of Companions, a different Titan, a different Setting. This game is a discussion, and as the Companions, you will recall your journey before facing the Titan.
Facing the Titan is not a game of tactical combat. It doesn’t feature a riddle to solve in order to win the fight. It’s a game to tell the stories of the Companions and the Titan. And the epic fight that will ensue. The Companions are set to win this fight, but at what cost, with what consequences?
Facing the Titan will be released as a PDF and as a Print-on-Demand softcover book. The book will feature the rules for running the game, advice on how to play the game and six Titans. Each one of the six Titans will be illustrated by Roger Heal and will be included in a micro-setting, ready to play. The book will be around 160 pages, in a 6''x9'' format.
The campaign's about 3/4 of the way to its goal with still 27 days left to go.
