<whoop! whoop! whoop!> Giant Robot Alert! We have Giant Robot Alert! This time, it's being set off by Knights of the Round: Academy. This RPG is inspired by giant robot anime (as expected), school comedies, and a bit of fantasy thrown in. Homework is due and you've got to get your giant mecha suit ready for this weekend. Is there just enough hours in the day? The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Knights of the Round: Academy is a story-driven role-playing game inspired by shonen anime, super and real robots anime of the 90s, Japanese school comedies and JRPGs, with a dedicated set of rules that will use Traits to describe your characters, and dice to resolve any conflict with interesting and narrative ouctomes.
You will also be able to push your Limit by spending points to influence what's going to happen to your character.
The character you will play is a Student who must juggle ruthless rivals, gruelling training, teenage love and monsters from the past of a planet divided by war.
The campaign's more than 4x funded with 16 days left to go.
