SCP RPG Now Available

I have to admit, I've sorta known about SCP stuff for a while, mostly through various video game playthroughs that I've seen, but only now did I realize that it stands for Secure, Contain, and Protect. Interesting. But that's exactly what you'll be doing (Secure, Contain, and Protect, that is. Not simply realizing what SCP means) in SCP the RPG, now available.

From the website:

SCP The Tabletop Roleplaying game lets you take on the role of members of The Foundation to help Secure, Contain, and Protect various anomalies throughout the globe.

This book was successfully funded on Kickstarter in early 2021 and made over 1500% of the goal to fund its artwork and was written with an easy explanation of the ruleset first and foremost (see full-size preview pages for basic dice rules).  

Backers of the Kickstarter suggested what SCPs would be included in the book, which contains 20 pages of SCP content with original artwork, descriptions, and game statistics.

This is an 8.5x11 full-size book of 292 pages. This book, some dice, and an optional deck of SCP Drama Cards (sold separately) are all that is required to play.

SCP The Tabletop RPG offers a unique (optional) Drama Card system that allows players to draw from a deck of 82 unique effects to keep your Director (GM) on their toes. Effects range from rerolling an attribute check to rewriting your character's backstory!

Players begin with a Security Level, which not only determines what sensitive data they are allowed access to within the Foundation, but also what weapons they have access to, and what pages in the book they are given free access to read (Director's discretion).
