While not a serious newsman, I do consider myself a bit of a reporter. So seeing an RPG about being a reporter for a major city newspaper set in an alternative 1920s New York where there's not only bureaucrats, gangsters, and flappers, but also demons, devils, and magic, it piques my interest. Dangerous Times is just that, and they're up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Dangerous Times is a tabletop role-playing game for two or more players, played in sessions each describing a single "issue" of a publication.
Players take the role of journalists who put their lives on the line to document corruption, disaster, and crime— in a 1920s New York that’s just discovered magic.
There's danger and suspense, but players don't always set out to punch evil in the face— sometimes they just try to live through encounters with it.
As long as reporters survive to inform the public, there's a chance for the world to change.
The campaign's 12x funded, but there's only about 2 days left to get in on it.
