Inside Codex - Joy 2:
Storm Riders! A game about action hero cartoons of the 1980s and the people who love them. Gameplay alternates between portraying characters from a gonzo fantasy world, portraying a person in the real-world who loves the show those characters exist in, and even participating in meta narratives such as TV commercials airing during the show and meetings with the Broadcast Standards board. Storm Riders was chosen as one of The Gauntlet’s Favorite Games of 2018!
A Feast of Jovial Moments Written for use in Epidiah Ravachol’s Swords Without Master, as ideas for Thunders, Feats Heroic, or even a simple roll. Also useful for inspiring fantastical tales of roguery and adventure.
