If you are a fan of Apex: The Collected Edition or the Apex: World of Dinosaurs Anthology, you won’t want to miss out on Apex: Astounding Thrills and Other Marvelous Pulp Stories Roleplaying Game!
Apex: Astounding Thrills is a 212 page roleplaying game from the mind of Alan Bahr, inspired by the Apex Theropod Deck-Building Game. Everything you need to play the game is in this book. And if you are looking for additional inspiration, you can always check out the stories from the Apex: World of Dinosaurs Anthology.
ASTOUNDING THRILLS AND OTHER MARVELOUS PULP STORIES…
…is a roleplaying game inspired by the ideas laid forth in the earliest roleplaying games. We’re kicking it “old-school”, as the kids say.
The various elements of this game attempt to blend and move classic feel of early d20 roleplaying into a realm of action-packed, two-fisted pulp adventure.
There’s an astounding (ha!) list of pulp media to consume, so we’ll break some down for you here. We could write an essay for pages about what defines pulp, but it’s better if you watch the core media and create your own stories and ideas of pulp.
In short, if you want to capture the feel of Astounding Thrills, simply watch Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The Rocketeer, and Indiana Jones, and you’re well on your way!
