Base Raiders: The Superpowered Dungeon Crawling RPG is a KickStarter from Ross Payton. Many of you fond of listening to role playing podcasts are probably familiar with his podcast Role Playing Public Radio where he runs games in a variety of game systems. My current favorite is Cthulhu Invictus, check it out, it’s good stuff.
Base Raiders uses the FATE RPG system to let players enter a world where all the Super Heroes and Super Villains have mysteriously vanished. Soon afterward a “few of their secret labs, headquarters, and lairs were raided, but many more remain hidden. The secrets of gaining superpowers began to leak out. A new class of self-empowered ‘base raiders’ emerged. Many abandoned bases still wait to be discovered. Treasures, unique artifacts, and secret knowledge can be found in the bases, prizes worth risking death from the traps and guardians left behind.”
The players take on the role of Base Raiders, turning themselves into super powered beings. This looks to be a very cool concept and the KickStarter is already fully funded! You have until November 25th to back it and get in on the action and help push to some of the stretch goals like a Savage Worlds conversion guide, which we would love here at the Goblin Beat.
