Key Mechanics

The core of Pulp!’s fast game-play is a single six sided die (better known as a d6). When you want to do something that is more than mundane you roll a d6, then add an Ability Modifier and one Trait or Asset. Compare that number to a Difficulty set by the Game Master or an opposed roll.

To help create big action on the fly, the d6 also helps produce special circumstances related to your action. Roll a 6 on the die and Achieve Outstanding Success, performing so well you gain an additional benefit greater than what you hoped to achieve. Roll a 1 on the die and you’ve cause a Complication. These add new elements to the scene that make things more difficult, but usually only fr a short time.

That means on every 1 out of 3 rolls, something interesting is sure to happen. That’s just the way we like it in Pulp!, fast and exciting.

Beer Star Games at PAXEast

JacqueDuMontWelcome friends!

It’s that time of year again. Beer Star Games is about to storm PAXEast. Come see us, say hi, and play a game or two. The best way to find us in person is to tweet our head of everything @BrianLiberge.

We’ll have copies of Pulp! and B.E.A.R.D.! for purchase at the Modern Myths booth.

If you want to play a game of Ace Adventure Brian Liberge has two sessions open at Games On Demand. Both are on Friday the 10th.

Slot 1 is from 1 to 4 PM.

Slot 2 is from 8 to 11 PM.

He’ll also have the awesome, not Beer Star Games, game Monsterhearts available for those slots. I know it’s a heartbreaking thing to make you choose between deco-punk pilots and monster teenagers but thems the breaks.

On Saturday you can catch Brian with the awesome folks of the Gamer Assembly and talented guest star Meg McGinley (Games by Playdate) in the fifth annual TABLETOP SYSTEM WARS. Bring any game idea you want, the crazier the better and watch our expert panel argue about which game system is right for you.

Finally, on Sunday we take a more serious tone. Brian will be moderating Inner Demons: Anxiety and Depression in Gamers. A tough but always welcome panel. We invite you to come by and know that you are not alone. Joining him this year is Ashley Barry, Kaitlyn Chantry and Tanya DePass.
