Ross Rifles Trench Warfare RPG Up On Kickstarter

WWI is, to me, one of the most fascinating times in human history. The results of that war still influence culture, war, and politics to this very day, a century later. If you'd like to see what life was like back in the trenches (but don't actually want to fly to France or risk death out in No Man's Land), you will want to check out Ross Rifles, a new RPG system powered by the Apocalypse System that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Introducing Ross Rifles - a tabletop roleplaying game set in the Canadian trenches of the First World War. From 1914-1918, Canada played a major role in assisting the British Empire in winning one of the fiercest wars in history. But victory came at a cost. The First World War took the lives of over 60,000 Canadians. It was from this vast entanglement of international alliances, leaders, and agendas that Canada emerged as a modern fighting force on the brink of nationhood. In Ross Rifles, you play as soldiers from the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) struggling to survive the horrors of trench warfare during the First World War. Sent overseas to fight for crown and country, your characters will make personal sacrifices in the name of Canada.

As you can see from the Featured Image, the campaign's already up and over its funding goal (almost to 2x funded) with still 27 days left to go.
