Characters all look great.

I wonder if I can get my friends to get as excited as I am. I'm sure the names mean nothing to them but if I say creators of GARcher, Baccano! and Puella Magi, maybe they'll understand.

When does this game come out?

Whoa, what is this? I can't believe I didn't know this news.

Gen, Nasu and Narita around a table, roleplaying? I do think the universe just imploded on itself. Being an avid tabletop guy too, this is some pretty epic news to me.

This is to hoping their campaign bears a lot of good fruit. Can't wait to see the results!

Hmm looks like a great time to me. Hope it gets translated.

Nasu is involved = I am incredibly interested

This seems awesome, especially Nasu's and Gen's characters

I'm not one to be excited about a tabletop RPG session, but with Nasu and Urobuchi involved, this HAS to be epic.

Am I the only one who is more concerned about an original soundtrack Sakimoto's composing just for a RPG session?


No, you're not alone.

Using music in RPG sessions is a common sense. Since the characters are all original, it's only natural the music is original as well.


Well then, maybe I wasn't clear (I wasn't anyway). What matters for me here is Sakimoto's score. I could care less about the rest of the news.

A robot in a top-hat? Classy as always. I'm barely interested in Nasu and I couldn't begin to care about the two no-names and their characters, but I just can't imagine Narita and Urobochi getting together and producing anything but solid fucking gold.
I hope I can get something out of this with roughly zero table-top RPG knowledge.

EDIT: Turns out Kougyoku Izuki wrote a LN I've been meaning to read. As long as her character's more interesting on the inside than the outside, I should have more to look forward to now.

Oh my god Urobuchi Gen & Narita are going to be in it.

Let the trolling begin~

But srsly. I'm really looking foreword to it.

How nice. I wish I can continue my diceless campaign when I feel like it, too. Maybe, I'll look forward to their roleplaying sessions.

MMM??? Wait, Gen Urobuchi, Kinoko Nasu among others in this game?
Gen looks awesome as well as Nasu who reminds me of Saber.
