No Thank You, Evil from Monte Cook Games Launches On Kickstarter

No Thank You, Evil from Monte Cook Games (publishers of Numenera, The Strange, and the upcoming Cypher System Roleplaying Game) went live on Kickstarter and has already met its $40,000 goal with around 33 days left to go as I write this. Instead of targeting teens or adults, like many RPGs, No Thank You, Evil is a roleplaying game designed to be played with children (although they do note that adults can play as well). It also has a really nicely designed web site. In No Thank You, Evil the players can play, well, whatever comes to their mind which is described in a manner similar to Numenera’s one unique thing system where you describe your character by saying I am a ____ ______ that _______ or something along those lines. According to the Kickstarter, No Thank You, Evil can be played with children as young as five and sends the players across an adventure set in a land called Storia, where anything that the players and the GM (called the Guide here) can think up can happen. Like in a traditional RPG, each action has a difficulty (here rated from 0 to 8, with 0 being automatic). The dice rolls are unmodified, but if you want to lowered the difficulty of a task you can Try Harder, which lets you use a point from one of your pools (Tough, Fast, Smart and Awesome, from what I can tell from pictures on the web site). I know there are other kid-aimed RPGs on the market, but I think that the chrome that Monte Cook Games is putting on this one will make it an easier sell, with bright and interesting components. On the Kickstarter, a PDF of the game is $20, the standard edition is $40 and the Kickstarter Edition (which will contain upgraded components as well as stretch goals if those are reached).
