Happy New Year! Time to Learn a New, Super Game

Posted on January 6, 2020 by Monica Valentinelli

DriveThruRPG.com is kicking off the new year with a massive sale. There are hundreds of new games to choose from including Scion 2nd Edition from Onyx Path Publishing, Infinity from Modiphius, and Mortal Coil from Galileo Games Hoping for a super 2020? If superheroes are your jam, I recommend the Valiant Universe RPG from Catalyst Game Labs.

The Valiant Universe Roleplaying Game is a graphic novel-sized, full-color book that offers setting, characters, organizations, rules, and comic book storylines for your table. What makes this corebook so unique is its attention to specifics. Titles and Exposes presents characters and events without rules attached. Keywords are highlighted using tags; these allow you to learn in universe language while you read about Bloodshot, the Harbinger Wars, the Book of Death, and so much more.

Following a deep dive into the setting, you’ll read about the narrative-focused Cue System for this superhero game. Narrative rules are GREAT for first time players–especially in a comic book universe where high-powered characters fight alongside military operatives. What’s different about the Valiant RPG is that the game design logic and notes are scattered throughout to help you have the best experience playing in the Valiant Universe.

If you don’t want to dive into character, NPC, and Event Brief creation, you don’t have to. There’s a lot of plug-and-play material presented in the Valiant Universe RPG to give you everything you need to roll dice and tell a great story.

Superheroes not your thing? Check out the New Year New Game Sale for dozens of other options. What new game are you thinking of playing? Which one would you recommend for brand new players?
