Wobble: Transdimensional Roleplaying
Publisher: Peryton Publishing

Man, am I disappointed. It pains me to say it, but man, am I disappointed.

This isn't a complete game -- not that you could tell, because there's nothing on either the DTRPG page for it, nor in the text, to inform the buyer that it doesn't contain its own rules. If you have no idea that it's not a complete game (as was the case for me) and purchase it thinking that it is, this product makes for a confusing, frustrating, and ultimately disappointing read.

...and that's a real disappointment. The game's concept is enticing and entertaining, promising the kind of crazy-go-nuts bonkers wackadoo fun that could fill many an evening's play. I was genuinely excited to purchase and download this product. Sadly, the poor writing and editing, the uneven organization, unattractive formatting, and -again- incompleteness of the product sank my spirits.

I very much hope that the publisher will take this critique to heart. My goal isn't to beat up on an indie publisher (what good would that do?), but to encourage a better, clearer presentation of a fun idea. This could be a great product; in fact, I think it should be a great product. There are a lot of fun ideas in there. But until its ideas are easier to parse out and it's clear how they're intended to be used, Wobble: Transdimensional Roleplaying will be just that: ideas. Ideas are great, but I wanted a game.

WOW, MAN. This thing is ACES. There are Foci in here that make so much sense within the context of the game, that I am frankly surprised they're not in the core book.

I'm not crazy about the presentation, and there are a few errors general grammar and vocabulary ("grizzly" in place of "grisly", etc.), but there's also a focus called "Discovers Recursions", as well as one that lets you die over and over again to the benefit of the team -- yes, "Dies" is effectively the Redshirt focus. [Everybody together on three: 1, 2, 3 -- "WELSHIIEEEEE!!!!"]

If you have "The Strange" but not this, you're missing out. PERIOD.

In my wife's words, "Ah, so, it's a game where your characters actually SUCCEED." Indeed, it is! Reminiscent of the venerable diceless "Theatrix", Wushu is a terriffic addition to any gamer's collection. Wildly malleable, it's ready to accept any genre you want. In fact, Wushu's Principle of Narrative Truth does more to support the genre than do most games, by rewarding in-genre actions and descriptions.

Mm-mm-good!<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: It's rad.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: It could use some editing, spell-checking, etc; the layout is clean but uninspiring. A GM's section, giving suggestions on how to tame this wild beast, would be a terriffic addition. Lastly, if you speak Spanish, just pretend that the author means to say "hand-to-hand' and not "monky-to-monkey". <br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
