Gamer Nation Studios to Publish Tall Tales RPG by Managing Designer Jay Little
Gamer Nation Studios has announced that they will publish a new role-playing game titled “Tall Tales” by new Managing Designer Jay Little. “Tall Tales” will use the new Triple Threat System, a narrative die rolling system designed to be flexible, fun and fast. The Triple Threat System has been in development for over 4 years under the guidance of Jay Little and is currently in play testing.
“Tall Tales” is set in the American Frontier that never quite was, where folklore and legend fueled the stories of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, Pecos Bill and the King of the Wild Frontier, Davy Crocket. Players will build their American Heroes to join the fray against varmints and critters as well as villains led by the Commodore of Crime, Cornelius Vadnerbilt. Tall Tales is billed as a yard spinnin’ game and relies on players’ fame and notoriety to establish themselves as true American Heroes.
