Unstoppable maniacs. Gratuitous violence. Nail-biting suspense. Oversexed camp counselors.
Slasher Flick is a roleplaying game that brings all the thrills and chills of "psycho killer" movies from the screen to the tabletop! With a game system that was designed to create and build suspense, Slasher Flick emulates every aspect of the genre with ease and style.
· Multiple Characters! Each player plays a primary character as well as one or more secondary characters (i.e., victims!).
· Group-Based Character Creation! Players create their own primary characters, but everyone helps create the secondary characters.
· Kill Scenes! When the killer strikes, a kill scene begins. A kill scene is a stream of narration punctuated by stat checks. Successful stat checks grant the character survival points, while unsuccessful ones cause a loss of survival points. If the character gains 8, he survives... but if he drops below 0, he’s butchered!
· Genre Points! When a character does something that plays to the conventions of the genre (e.g., checking out the noise), the controlling player receives a genre point that can help out later on in the game.
The rulebook is digest-sized (5.5” x 8.5”) and can be printed 2 pages per sheet of paper.
