Fremdsprachige Ausgabe: Taupe Games
AAARG! is a generic roleplaying system that is simple to learn and play¸ a fast moving game of action. It comes in an A4 sized (but can be cut to letter sized)¸ 54 page¸ staple bound book with black and white art. Obviously a small press effort but nicely laser printed¸ well written and logically organized. Each page contains side bars with examples of play that apply to that page's text. The book includes: a general bestiary¸ skills¸ NPC arch-types¸ campaign ideas¸ task resolution (including combat)¸ character creation/detailing/advancement and a simplified weapons chart (one of the only charts in the book).
The game is meant to foster action oriented¸ low reality¸ roleplaying¸ in the spirit of old ('30s¸ '40s¸' 50s) Hollywood movies and serials. There is no complete campaign setting within these basic rules¸ just some notes on genres¸ but as the rules suggest other RPG's supplements are easily used with AAARG! due to its simplicity. On the inside front cover¸ the author lists some of the first supplements he plans: pulp scifi¸ inter-dimensional and alternate history (Erik the Redskin¸ about Vikings in North America). Other support will be published in the author's fanzine¸ Black Mole¸ including a piece on Godzilla-type campaigns in the upcoming issue.
