The origins of the Titans remain shrouded in mystery. All we know is that their rise was sudden and brutal, and soon, they were everywhere. Massive and all but indestructible, the Titans sought nothing but to eat humans. And eat they did - before long, humans had been pushed to the brink of extinction.
Now this world belongs to the Titans. All that remains of humanity lives in a single nation, surrounded by three enormous walls. The world beyond the walls is a dangerous one, full of ravenous Titans that seek nothing more than to consume human flesh. Behind the walls, humanity is safe - but all it would take is a single breach to plunge humanity into chaos once more. If the first wall were to break, half of humanity’s territory would be lost. If the second were to break, what little remained would not be able to support even its own population, let alone the refugees from outside. If the third wall broke, then every last human would surely be devoured.
You have just graduated from the military training corps, and been trained in the dangerous craft of fighting Titans. People like you patrol the walls, keep the peace, and go on expeditions beyond the walls to unearth resources and information. You do not know the true horror of battle between man and Titan.
But you will.
Welcome to Titan World.
The full rules are three pages long, and viewable here. System's based on 2d6 +/- some odds, your character levels up when they survive a mission and has minimally less chance to die horribly in terrible ways, and rookies die a lot. Here's how you get in on the juicy action, and how the titans get at your juicy human-flesh:
NAME: Pick a first name. No, not a last. Rookies don't get last names, characters do.
STATS: Assign +2, +1, +1, +0, -1 to the following five stats- Agility: Execution: Awareness: Discipline: Rage:
GEAR: Spare Gas, Spare Blades, Rifle or Flare Gun. Pick one.
Finally, hit "post". Congrats, you've got a new rookie character. You'll be doing this a few times, probably.
Read over the Basic Moves page of the rules- and hell, the rest of them too, it's less than three pages of relevant stuff.
Edit: Here is a convenient picture locating timezones. Please write your number so that we can easily organize games:
For example, I'm at -8.
Recorded Titan Kills:
Marcus Neuman: 7
Tyrone Clay: 3
