Welcome! We’re Maniac Clown Productions, producers of METAL WORLD, the heavy metal tabletop RPG where over the top is a good start. Imagine a world where axe-wielding barbarians fight radioactive zombies. Wizards drive enchanted tanks. The Fire Marshal rides his rocket-powered robot horse around the Howling Plains, using his 666-shooters to dispense hot justice. The Skeleton Ship— made of the skin, bone, and other parts of dead sailors— sails the seas of METAL WORLD, usually at its own whim. You can go to Hell, which is a physical place just like Glamm, the Silver Mountain, or the Blight. Then there’s the Dracano, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a volcano made of dragons that shoots lava and more dragons when it erupts. Using its own original system— stripped down to focus on the in-game story over rules minutiae as much as possible— METAL WORLD shows that it doesn’t have to make sense. It just has to be awesome.
METAL WORLD: The Rough Cut— the final preview edition before the Kickstarter campaign— is available now via DriveThruRPG as a pay-what-you-want product, which will help fund promotional artwork for the campaign and— more importantly— allow people to see what METAL WORLD is and give it a spin on their own. Head on over to our Facebook Group, our subreddit, our Twitter, or our Discord to discuss it!
