Rutskarn is taking part in some sort of madcap scheme to raise money for charity. They’re going to play tabletop RPG’s, and keep playing tabletop RPG’s, for a long time. I don’t know how long. It has been suggested that they are aiming for “too long” as their target timeframe. All of it will be livestreamed. In fact, you could be watching it right now. Tune in and find out if Rutskarn is really older than ten, as he habitually claims.
According to the cut & paste I just did from Rutskarn’s blog, they will be playing:
- Maid, a game in which you play a pastiche of an anime or manga maid who seriously just takes care of a master for the whole session. It's actually a lot of fun.
- Paranoia, a game of backstabbing, treachery, and <
- Buck Rogers vs. The Han, published by TSR as part of its “we're still slightly more relevant than this license” series of RPGs.
- FATAL, the king of awful roleplaying games, a game that has caused literal physical discomfort in almost everyone I've explained it to. I'd almost recommend you don't Google it. Not at work, anyway.
