Doctor Who Roleplaying Game – Sean’s Pick, 100617

Talkers, Runners, Doers, Fighters“. That’s the initiative system for this final Pick for Blessed Are the Healers Week, and it’s what makes this action adventure RPG based on a popular media property stand out. The initiative system reflects the aesthetic and ethics of the series, where those willing to talk things out are given precedence, and those who choose to do something other than punch or shoot to resolve a conflict are greatly valued. Sure, there are times when there simply is no other choice… but how nice to see that a game can be fun and exciting with all the other options given such value.

The Doctor is in.

Imagine you could go anywhere. This world or countless others, encountering strange alien races, new cultures or hostile environments. Now imagine you could travel to any time. Meet Robin Hood (and duel him with a spoon!), discover what terrible monster lives under your bed, journey inside a Dalek or travel to the end of time itself. Where would you go?

With Cubicle 7’s Doctor Who Roleplaying Game, the power is in your hands! You can go anywhere or anywhen in the universe. It’s not going to be easy. It’ll probably be dangerous. The universe is a hostile place, full of Daleks, Zygons, Sontarans, the Boneless, Cybermen, Clockwork Robots, Silurians and worse. There will be fear, heartbreak and excitement, but above all, it’ll be the trip of a lifetime.
