Eldritch Ass Kicking is the roleplaying game of "arcane action and old men with sticks". You play a wizard with uncanny, magickal power trapped in a distant astral realm. Will you use your magick to save your homeland, or will you scheme to conquer it?
EAK is a brilliant 96 page book, written by Nathan J. Hill and illustrated by Thomas Denmark and Tom Weighill.
Originally released as a softcover, the PDF download contains all the rules needed to create power mad wizards, battle insane arcane foes, draw henchmen, magickal constructs, and even demons to your side, and form deadly alliances and cabals. Gameplay is fast and furious, using two 10-sided dice and your descriptive imagination. There are no spells or pre-defined magickal effects - just your imagination describing boiling balls of water, streaks of flaming arrows, earthen shields of stone, and whirling cyclones of death rushing toward your ill-fated foe.

"In sum, I really liked this game when it first came out, and now I love it. The freer-form magic got me hooked, but what kept me on the line is the subtle humor of the game. I love irony, more so than magic in an rpg. People tend to (if they’ve heard of it) seriously underestimate this game, treating it as an episodic, beer-and-pretzels game. Now it can more readily support long-term play, but people might still dismiss it as just another comedy rpg. It’s a funny game, but it’s even funnier than it might appear at first glance." - Carl Congdon, Rpg.net Review
