Breakfast Cult is an amazing game for playing in an anime inspired school setting. Using supernatural adventures as a framework, the setting information gives you freedom to frame your stories in a variety of ways, letting you slant things to be more comedic or more horrifying. With many prebuilt player characters, you can either jump right into play or have a fully built world ready to go. Being in Fate Accelerated prevents the game from being too much like Calvinball and allows you to keep things in check. One of my favorite games, I recommend to anyone to give Breakfast Cult a chance.

Breakfast Cult is far and away my favorite RPG setting. It takes the solid base of FAE and just lavishes it with such incredible anime everything. Dangan Ronpa and Persona especially, but there's Haruhi and Death Note and all sorts in there. The setting of Occultar Academy is so beautifully realized and incredibly rich without stifling players abilities to add to the world. With 20 sample characters (that can double as player characters) and even more encounters that are all so incredibly characterized I could only ask for more of them.

I'd go on, but I think I'd rather say how in one session of Breakfast Cult, one of my players started rapping, and another told me it was the most genuinely scared they'd been playing an RPG. It's great, I can't recommend it enough.

Do you enjoy video game franchises like Persona, or Danganronpa? To generic it up a bit, how about teenagers getting into trouble? Occult mysteries? Weird science? Techno magic-with-a-k? Good! Now put all those things into a blender and pouring out the deliciousness that is the Breakfast Cult RPG. Running on the Fate Accelerated engine, BC lets you tell the stories of teenagers with bizarre and poorly understood powers and then watch as they get in way over their heads. FAE is a very flexible system, and works well with Breakfast Cult as you can have characters ranging from occult wunderkind to semi-retired magical girls to Death Note simulacrums. The more inventive and weird you can make your characters, the better, and Fate Accelerated can back you up. The art is also wonderful, a manga-esque style that really helps with the Lovecraft/John Hughes love child tone that I feel is the game's sweet spot.

Even trimmed down from FATE's original form, Accelerated is a bit of a stumbling block for me as I always trip up on the bit where you need short, punchy phrases that work as a character's Aspects. Examples really, really help and some developers I think forget that we are all not as blessed as they when it comes to a descriptive and double-edged phrase for a character. Paul has come to the rescue of those me who struggle with such things with no less than twenty example characters who can do double duty as allies and antagonists or pregen PCs. Best of all, all twenty of them are great with example Aspects to inspire or reskin at your leisure but are just great examples of the type of characters to be found at home in the setting. I'd play them all. (Particularly hoops bamming enthusiast Addison Waite.)

If any of the things the game references appeals to you at all, I urge you to pick the book up. Even if you don't play it, it's a great read and worth your time and money.

Breakfast Cult combines the high-school drama of The Breakfast Club with the cosmic horror of the Cthulhu mythos and also with the cosmic horror of Japanese animation. The result is a fun time for the whole family!

Players take on the roles of students at Occultar Academy, a school in the far future where prodigies are taught just enough occult science to advance human knowledge without getting into trouble. Then, they get in trouble anyway.

If you like the idea of being a really good sorceress who would like to be a really good rapper, or a sugar-dependent high school superdetective, this game is for you. If you dislike people with a tentacle instead of a face, people with really big adorable eyes, or fun, this game may not be for you.

Consult your doctor before playing Breakfast Cult. If you hear voices, stop reading Breakfast Cult. Unless they are the voices of your gaming group. In that case, you should help them make a character. The results can only be good for your SAN score!*
