Play Hard: Action Movie Roleplaying

Suggested Price $0.99

Play Any Kind of Action Movie - Any Time, Place, or Genre!

An action movie is a type of thriller that relies heavily on violence, armed and unarmed fight scenes, life-threatening situations, exhibition of physical prowess, and intense chase scenes on foot, on horseback, or in vehicles. Action movies are morally simplistic, with clear-cut Good Guys and Bad Guys. The Heroes might be morally ambiguous anti-heroes, but they work for the side of truth and justice. That’s why most action films often involve themes of crime, war, law enforcement, espionage, revenge, and high adventure.

You can use PLAY HARD for many different situations, but you should pick one before the players create characters. Are they undercover cops fighting drug lords in the big city? Will they be soldiers tracking a killer alien through the jungle? Maybe they’re criminals planning a big heist, or futuristic bounty hunters after a deranged android serial killer. Keep the idea simple and you’ll have endless possibilities to work with.

This game uses a stripped-down d6-only variant of the Lighthouse Roleplaying System, a set of mechanics designed to tell stories. It relies on collaboration rather than competition, as everyone works together to create a fun and interesting story. In this case, you’re all creating an action movie together.

A tribute game based on action movies. I love it.

This game deserves supplements - a splatbook covering all your favourite action movie aliens, from xenomorphs-ish, to Predators-sort of. A bunch of scenarios, maybe, covering cop movie tropes, military action movie tropes, Nakatomi Tower-style sieges ... So many avenues to cover.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
