Murders & Acquisitions RPG

The Murders & Acquisitions Roleplaying Game puts you smack dab in the middle of a cut-throat corporation in an absurd, alternate version of our world where literally anything goes in terms of corporate advancement.

You portray an employee seeking power, prestige, and wealth…at any cost. You’ll work with the other players to sabotage your rivals’ pet projects, destroy them at social events, steal their secrets, or even kill them and cover it all up. In the process, you’ll rise up the ranks, make new enemies, and discover new goals.

All-in-One Game

This is an all-in-one game book with full rules for players and GMs. Character creation. Full rules. GM guidelines. Setting information and several backdrop companies. NPCs. Story Ideas.

Beyond the core game, it contains five chapters of optional, add-on rules you can mix and match to add a variety of fantastical elements to your modern-day setting.

  • Magic
  • Monsters
  • Future tech
  • Cosmic horror
  • The apocalypse.

So, in this game you are "an employee seeking power, prestige, and wealth…at any cost. You’ll sabotage your rivals’ pet projects, destroy them at social events, steal their secrets, or even kill them and cover it all up. In the process, you’ll rise up the ranks, make new enemies, and discover new goals."
For some reason I fail to see, how this is "an absurd, alternate version of our world"... ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I just received a message from you guys containing promo urls for 40% off on the PDF and hardback. However, when I try to use the url for the pdf I get the following message here on DT:


I didn't know how else to contact you, so forgive me for using the discussion here.

Solved as evidenced by my shiny 'purchaser' badge. ;D

Glad to hear it. Enjoy your murdering and acquiring. :-)

Be sure to take a look at the Die Laughing alpha playtest document here at DTRPG. I'm looking for feedback on this game, which is in its very early stages.

Is this an exclusively PvP game or can it be adapted to co-operative play (e.g. players against the corp or an NPC team)?

This is a fairly traditional RPG where the characters work cooperatively. They vie against other NPCs, the corporation itself, etc. PvP can be a part of the game, but it's not required.

Original electronic
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.
