Rock Opera '79 Inspirations

For everyone following the development of Rock Opera '79, here's a link to the Pinterest board I created as inspiration. It articulates the spirit of the game better than words.


Take the Dice Stacker Challenge! I need data!

I'm developing a task resolution mechanic that involves stacking, rather than rolling, dice, and I need data to norm the target numbers/challenge levels. Wanna help?

Go get a bunch of identical (or same size and weight) d6s and make the tallest possible dice stack that your skill allows. Then go to this poll on my Google+ feed and enter the result, and post your personal best in the comments. My personal best is 16. Can you beat that?

It's Coming... Rock Opera '79 RPG

In the future, rock must fight to stay alive.

It is the year 1979.

Rock music has been outlawed by the decadent Discocracy. As the glittering elite of Disctopia dance with abandon to a soul-numbing beat, the teeming masses of Rocktopolis call for heroes. That’s where you come in.

As a member of one of the last outlaw rock bands standing, you’ve got to fight your way back to the top of the charts, winning hearts along the way and battling the evil forces of The Man. Can you hit #1 and reclaim rock’s right to rule?
