HOT CHICKS: The Roleplaying Game is a more serious and dark version (although one can make the game comical with relative ease) of Macho Women with Guns. The setting is a few years in the future. So it like modern with a bit of a futuristic feel. The campaigns created could easily be an Urban Fantasy, Sci-Fi, or Horror genre.
The Game System and Mechanics are innovating and simple. This makes it great for inexperienced Game Master and Players. The System is Inverted 20 where you roll a twenty sided dice and try to get a low number. The mechanic makes it easy for those cinematic actions we have all imagine our characters doing.
The Character Creation is really great for those tired of being constrained into set character types. There is very little limitation in the process. Your characters are human that can be cyborgs, superhuman, mages, psionics, martial artists, or a combination. Perhaps you just want an average Joe (or Jane) in a harsh world where danger is everywhere. All this is possible you just have to imagine what you what. There is also not shortage of equipment in this game. You can either buy the equipment or beat bad guys up for it.
The Artwork is exceptional. It is a great collection of Cool Dudes and Hot Chicks with most in tight fitting and reveling outfits. The illustration does not get too mature.
Sample Characters and Antagonists are provided with Character Sheets Stats. There is even information about several organizations that exist in the HOT CHICKS Campaign World Setting.
This is not a game for everybody. If you are easily offended or not a mature adult I suggest you don’t buy this product. It goes without saying, but keep out of hands of children.
