KILLER RATINGS is a one-shot, zero-prep, rules-light tabletop roleplaying game for 3 to 5 players and a Director. The players are the cast and crew of a terrible paranormal investigation show on the verge of cancellation. The good news is you’ve secured the rights to film the season finale in “the most haunted location in America.” The bad news is the place is actually really haunted, and you may well be completely boned.
As loud, campy, reality-TV stars, your gift for melodrama will be all you need to wake the dead – and may well be your key to survival once the haunting goes sideways. If it doesn’t get you killed first.
In short, you play some of the worst people on Earth as they blithely walk into one of the worst places on Earth, and most of you won't survive. But, however it shakes out, it should make for great TV.
Bonus: This RPG includes a second RPG within it called “Targ Margs” (see second image). In Targ Margs, you’ve just finished indulging in margaritas and are suddenly inspired to go to Target – chaos ensues!
What You'll Need to Play:
- 3-5 players and a Director
- a few d6's apiece
- some notecards or the text tool in your VTT of choice
- a handful of d20s and d10s up front to generate your show's name and aspects of the Haunt, but after that d6's will see you through
