The Trophy RPG is actually two different games. Trophy Dark is a psychological horror one-shot game while Trophy Gold is a campaign game. But in both, players take on the role of treasure hunters who are trying to, well, find treasures. However, the world they're searching around in actively fights against them every step of the way. If you're looking for a dark, gritty game, this one might just be for you. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Trophy is a tabletop roleplaying game about a group of treasure-hunters entering a forest that doesn’t want them there. Trophy is not one game, but two: Trophy Dark and Trophy Gold. We're raising money to create 3 hardcover books. Each book will be: 7"x10" in size, and feature luxurious heavyweight paper, full-color interiors, partial cloth bindings, foil stamps, and ribbon bookmarks.
Trophy Dark is a one-shot game of psychological horror, where you portray risk-taking treasure-hunters on a doomed expedition. As they get closer and closer to the heart of the forest, it does everything it can to tear them apart, drive them mad, and—if they’re lucky—kill them. Trophy Dark is perfect for standalone games and conventions, or for prequels, flashbacks, and side stories that are a part of a larger game like Trophy Gold.
Trophy Gold is a campaign-length game of dungeon-delving adventure in the old school model. Unlike Trophy Dark, your treasure-hunters aren’t necessarily doomed, but they are desperate. Their tomb-raiding lifestyle has burdened them with debt, and the near-certain death that comes with facing monsters is nothing compared to the certain death they face by returning home without enough treasure to pay those debts.
In addition to Trophy Dark and Trophy Gold, we are also creating Trophy Loom: a system-agnostic setting guide. Trophy Loom helps you bring to life your own dark fantasy world for Trophy Dark, Trophy Gold, or for your favorite fantasy roleplaying game system.
As you can see from the featured image, they're already up and over their campaign goal (about 3x their asking total so far) with 32 days to go.
