Threadbare RPG Up On Kickstarter

Threadbare RPG Up On Kickstarter

Things fall apart. Or so wrote Chinua Achebe.
But we’re not here to talk about Nigerian novels.
No, we’re here to talk about the things just around us every day. The second law of thermodynamics says that things will move towards disorder due to an increase in entropy.
Man, I’m getting rather highbrow for an RPG about playing a busted toy (but as you know my penchant for liking games with unique themes, it’s not entirely my fault).

In the game, you play as a Softie (a plush toy, effectively), a Mekka (a hard-plastic or metal toy), or a Sock (one of a mis-matched pair. The other of which might be gone forever). The rules use the Apocalypse World system, though combat encounters are few and far between. However, as you get damaged and repair yourself with the available materials, you can find your character description and even your personality.

The campaign is closing in on 2x funded with still 21 days left to go.
