Argyle & Crew have arrived!  You can get your copy right now for $2.99 at DriveThruRGP!  What is Argyle & Crew?

It’s my first stand-alone RPG.  It’s a collaborative storytelling adventure for kids.  It’s a great pick up game for adults.

The land of Skcos is inhabited by all manner of things, but primarily its inhabitants belong to a race of ever changing, always interesting creatures called Soppets. Soppets are a magical breed of intelligent, funny, thrill seeking socks.

Yes, you read that correctly, Socks.

Argyle & Crew is a free wheeling system powered by imagination. Rather than a character sheet like a traditional RPG, your character and it’s attributes are all based on a sock puppet, or in Skcos lingo, a Soppet.  Each Soppet has several unique qualities which allow it to do extraordinary things!

Argyle & Crew is great game for children as young as 4 years old.  Short scenarios and active participation keep things lively!  Useful as a learning tool not just for gaming, but for life lessons, Argyle & Crew can easily be used in a classroom setting.  Professionals working on counseling children can find this game equally useful for indirectly or directly exploring past experiences and future anxieties. Use the additional rules for older children or adults and expand the game from a fun, play driven activity to a fully developed RPG, using the One-Shot RPG system.

25% of all proceeds from the sale of Argyle & Crew will go directly to The Wayne Foundation.

The Wayne Foundation

I’ve written about the Wayne Foundation here before. This 503(c) organization is just getting off the ground and it will be doing important work! Founded by Jamie Walton, with help from Kevin Smith,  the Wayne Foundation’s vision is for a world without child slavery. Their mission is to provide young women who have fallen victim to commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking with a means of leaving the sex industry for good.

The Wayne Foundation is committed to fighting human trafficking, child prostitution, & child sex exploitation one victim at a time by providing individuals with a safe home environment that will empower them with the tools they will need to stop the cycle of abuse. It is our intent to end commercial sex exploitation within the United States through direct victim assistance, public outreach, and by directly working with those who shape the policies and statutes which impact victims and their abusers.

“We believe that all victims can be rehabilitated through a program that provides education assistance, mental and physical health services, housing, and a support staff who are dedicated to assisting these girls reach their full potential. It is our objective to aid these young women until they are capable of reentering society on their own as happy and healthy adults.”

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

  1. […] bummed that Argyle & Crew didn’t quite meet its Kickstarter goal, I’m excited that Ben at Troll in the Corner is moving forward with it. You can get your own copy of the game PDF at DriveThruRPG now, which is awesome. I have yet to try […]
