Automata

A lot of RPG fans love Penny Arcade and I am no exception. Recently the first chapter of “Automata” has been completed. What I want to share with you today is a video created by Christoph Hermiteer that adds a soundtrack to the six-paged comic.

The world of “Automata” is also interesting from a roleplaying standpoint. In my opinion alternate history settings always make great settings for RPGs. Who knows, perhaps Automata could be effectively used in a one-shot adventure.

In addition to his work on Warrior, Rogue & Mage and Dungeonslayers, he has created several self-published games and also performed layout services and published other independent role-playing games such as A Wanderer's Romance, Badass, and the Wyrm System derivative Resolute, Adventurer & Genius, all released through his imprint Stargazer Games. Professionally, he works as a video technician and information technologies specialist. Stargazer's World was started by Michael in August 2008.

    1. Cool! That's exactly what I was writing about! By the way, did the Penny Arcade guys post the background info on the setting somewhere on their website or did you just make it up yourself?
      I will definitively follow the development of your Automata pdf and give it a try when it's done. At least when I can convince my group that they want to play it. 😉
