I’ve been on an unintentional hiatus from blogging, but intend to get back on track. Here’s a start: One Shot, by Tracy Barnett of Exploding Rogue has just been released! You can grab the PDF and Soundtrack together.
Tracy funded One Shot via Kickstarter last year and brought me on board to handle the graphic design. One Shot is a 24-page RPG for one player (“The Shooter”) and one GM (“The Forces”)—very different from most of the things I’ve spent the last 10+ years working on! It’s laser-focused on the concept of vengeance and the sacrifices that one must make to obtain it.
Leah Huete’s photography in this book deserves extra praise—photographs as RPG art has often been half-baked. Her work is a full, delicious, evocative meal. If One Shot were a typical 160 or 300 page RPG, using photographs as every piece of art would probably be cost-and-time prohibitive, but in this case it works perfectly.
