Break out the spandex bodysuit and your cape. Evil is prowling around and it's up to the costumed superheroes to take care of business. Greater Than Games has launched their Kickstarter campaign to bring you the Sentinel Comics Roleplaying Game. Join up with other heroes and send the supervillains to superjail.
From the campaign:
A mad scientist holds an entire city hostage with a crackling doomsday device. A horrifying monster from another realm walks out of the ocean and begins smashing its way through major coastal population centers. Galactic raiders from beyond our solar system launch an attack on the first human outpost on Mars. Who saves humanity from these threats? You do. It's time to team up with your fellow heroes, stick to your principles, and save the day!
Welcome to the world of Sentinel Comics, an exciting place of super-powered heroes, dastardly villains, and the ever-changing environments where they clash!
Creators Christopher Badell and Adam Rebottaro originally envisioned the world of Sentinel Comics in 2010, and within a year, they'd joined forces with entrepreneur Paul Bender to create the company Greater Than Games, which released the cooperative card game Sentinels of the Multiverse in 2011. Inspired by great comic book storytelling, Sentinels brought thousands of gamers into the world of Sentinel Comics over the last eight years and continues to be a mainstay of comic book games in the tabletop gaming world. There was one resounding question asked by so many of those Sentinels fans: how do I tell my super-heroic stories in this world?
Now, for just that purpose, we bring you Sentinel Comics: The Roleplaying Game!
For the last few years, we've been developing a new super-powered roleplaying game with the fantastic folks at Critical-Hits Studios. Industry heroes Cam Banks, Dave Chalker, and Philippe-Antoine Ménard have all contributed their expertise and passion for comic book storytelling to this project, working alongside Sentinel Comics writer and Editor-in-Chief Christopher Badell as well as the dynamic freelance duo, editor Amanda Valentine and writer Clark Valentine. Sentinel Comics: The Roleplaying Game is all about bringing the comic book stories of your heroes to life at the table!
The campaign's around 3x funded with still 23 days to go.
