In humanity's darkest hour, Dr. Ex Machina calls for the greatest heroes in the space-time continum to save the world from the forces of evil! Unfortunantly, none of them showed up. So he got these guys instead.
Description: A less-than-serious Risus campaign for up to 5 players.
System: We're using Risus, an "anything" RPG with only 6 pages worth of rules for silly, comical games like this one. You might as well read them now; it'll only take a few minutes.
Character Creation Rules: In case you were too lazy to actually read the rules, here's how it works. You get 10 dice to create your character, and you sort these dice into "Cliches" that describe what your character can do (such as "Chef" or "Pirate"). You roll cliche dice to determine the outcome of challenges, including combat. You can't have more than 4 dice in one cleche. You can an extra die by coming up with a "Hook" (a major flaw or weakness) and a "Tale" (a short, paragraph long biography). And you need a description of your character, of course.
Here's an example of what a completed character looks like:
Discription: A tallish guy wearing both a doctor's coat and a ninja mask. Has lots of wacky adventures including one where he punched out Dracula on the moon.
Cliches: Doctor (4), Ninja (4), Detective(2)
