Title: Rosser Industries "Kill"
Post by: bilros02 on September 07, 2006, 06:30:09 AM
The second game release from Rosser Industries, "Kill" is a VERY short table top game that is all about PvP (Player Versus Player) combat.

Set in modern times, each player takes on the role of an everyday person who has been kidnapped by a secret organization. The organization, called "The Brotherhood of Blood", forces their victims to kill each other in a gruesome game of death, while the entire time the members of the Brotherhood watch from the safety of their homes on cameras and satelite images and place bets on the winners.

"Kill" is an extremely easy game to learn and play, with small character profiles that literally take 2-3 minutes to complete. The game operates with just two six-sided dice, meaning that gameplay is never complicated. Another neat addition to this game is the use of a regular deck of playing cards, which is used to decide the fate of characters when particularly horrible events arise (IE: The house the character is in explodes, or the character jumps off a building and wishes to know whether or not they survive the landing).

"Kill" has been play tested time and time again, and we found that even with 10-15 players at a time that a single game can only take from 30 minutes to an hour to complete. For GMs that are tired of coming up with detailed worlds and just want to have a quick game before the players for the main game arrive to play, "Kill" is an entertaining if not brutal game.

If you find this interesting, give this one a shot.
