Aquabats Super Game!

I've been feeling like crap all week. I hate August. If there is ever a month when everything seems to break down and go all wrong it is August. So anyways, news came through the pike that the Aquabats are having a kickstarter. If you don't know about it you do now!

Anyways, I am a fan and this cheered me up, so much so that I suggested online that someone ought to create an Aquabats RPG. In truth, it's pretty amazing that they don't already have one (something remains unmerchandized? IMPOSSIBLE!)

I honestly meant that someone - besides myself - should do this because I am busy with other things, but that is not how it often works around here. The idea took root and soon I was rabidly hammering one out. There are no lists of stuff, creatures, etc but mechanically it is complete. Will it work? I haven't a clue, but gosh darn it I would play this game.

A lot of it involves you and your friends sitting around the table, pretending to be Aquabats and resolving your actions by making silly cartoon noises. There are no hit points, no miniatures rules. I did eventually resort to using Pow points but on the whole I did whatever I could to avoid talking about numbers during game play. As necessary as they may be, nothing for me breaks the moment quite like talking in numbers.

What is it's future?

Once again, I haven't a clue. I would like to create a character sheet for it, but I do have other things to do and for Stolen Intellectual Property reasons building this game up isn't high on that list of priorities. Still, if you're interested, give it a look and tell me what you think. I'd love to hear it.

Should any of you actually play a game of it then you instantly achieve Super-Rad status in my book.
