It's Black Friday week! As a treat, this title has been marked down by 17%! For more holiday savings, visit our Black Friday to Cyber Monday sale page.

Don’t let the movies fool you.  Being a hero is hard work.  When stuff gets real, it takes the right person, in the right place, with the right skills.  It’s a hard, long fight to save the day, no matter whether you’re fighting with words, stealth, brains, speed, or big guns – or even all of the above!  Then just enough time to catch a good night’s sleep and probably do it all again tomorrow.  It takes a special kind of person to fill those shoes.

That’s why they hired you, isn’t it?

An INTERPOL monster hunter.  A hacker who never shows her face.  Two-finger Tess.  An urban dryad.  A electromagnetic cyborg.  A living lava man who carries part of the soul of the Earth.  A psychic crystal lifeform.  And yes, even Jet Law, a guy with two .45s and an endless supply of wisecracks.  Anyone can be an action hero.  Who will you be when the chips are down?  Will that be enough to save the day one more time? 

It will be.  But only if you step up to the plate.

Just Got Real is a collaborative, rules-light, action movie roleplaying game that plays in about as much time as it takes to watch an action movie.  Quick, collaborative scenarios and setting agnostic rules mean you can bring what you watch to the table in minutes.  Just watched John Wick?  Play as a circle of professional assassins.  Wonder Woman?  Be a kickass, fish-out-of-water superhero and her team of companions.  If you’ve watched action cinema or television of any subgenre, you’ve got the knowledge to set a scenario in Just Got Real:  Rush Hour, Underworld, MacGyver, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and more.

Just Got Real features:

  • Collaborative, zero prep scenario generation – who do you want to be, and where do you want to go?  The table can figure that out together instead of putting it all on the GM.
  • Quick character and challenge generation keep prep time between acts to mere minutes.
  • The Element Trio, a customizable set of traits that reinforce who you are and what you can do, setting up narrative callbacks to earlier action at the same time.
  • Mechanics for scene framing and economy, including Montages, Challenges, and Character Scenes, ensure a tightly focused experience where no screen time goes to waste and the spotlight keeps moving.
  • With pacing-forward design and beginner-friendly GM tools, you can experience an entire three-act action scenario in under three hours.

Just Got Real makes use of a simple six-sided dice pool system to determine the results of important actions – but if that’s not enough to save the day, your powers, talents, and quirks can save you from disaster in the nick of time!  

It’s time to get real.  Just Got Real: collaborative, rules-light action movie roleplaying, coming soon to a gaming table near you.  Own it now on DriveThruRPG.

PURCHASER
This game is perfect for when your group needs a light evening to recover from the latest epic adventure, when you want to introduce a bunch of new players to the concept of tabletop roleplaying or you are running a pick up game at your local con. Once of the nice features of this game is that it is relatively easy to customize playtime to fit your schedule.
I have played with this system multiple times, and while I have yet to DM it, as player I have always had a blast. My DM makes sure to emphasize the collaborative part of the game, bouncing around the plot, character concepts, how scenes would play out, and even what are villains were plotting with the character. This collaborative nature, and more freeform structure is one of the reasons I suggest to help sharpen the teeth of new players, without having a vast knowledge (or in some cases, fight the rules) it allows them to push their imagination and get a better feel for the flow of games in general.

However, there are a few cons. This...See more

Format

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.
