Hello World! As a slight detour from my usual Savage Worlds posting I will quickly visit Technoir.

You may or may not have heard about the Kickstarter for a new RPG called Technoir. It gathered a funding of over 14.ooo$ from supporters quicker than anyone had anticipated and it is still growing. I really recommend checking it out! It is an interesting game in itself and worth your money. However I am a Savage at heart. I am honest here, I never connected to RPG engines that where Storyteller focused. I love my dice so I prefer systems with more dice types than D6. And my group and I have a strong dislike for dice pool mechanics. But I still pledged money to it. Why? The presentation is great, the mechanics well thought out and it contains more than a simple game engine. I am really excited for it simply because it inspires me. It is the first game of this type that somehow managed to click. And I am sure I will be able to borrow liberally for my Savage Worlds games!
