Hey all,

I don't know how many of you fine flying folks are into tabletop RPGs à la D&D and similar, but I've seen one that recently funded on Kickstarter that you all might liike. Flying Circus is from what I can tell, First World War Airplanes & Cthulhu & Dragons. It's got a more fluid and in-depth flight system than other RPGs I've seen, based on managing two values - airspeed and altitude. I've played another game by the same creator, PATROL, and it's excellent.

Anywho, that's enough shilling from me. What do you guys think of it? Looks cool to me.

EDIT: Forgot to mention - the part of the game I'm most excited about is the mechanic for building and customising your aircraft from different parts in the books. I heard the game played on a podcast, and one of the players was flying some kind of unholy cross between a Farman Shorthorn and an Airco DH2.

I love D&D and have been playing since middle school (Skipped 3rd and 4th edition though). Pic below is from the last dungeon adventure I DMed this past sunday. The Flying Circus game looks interesting. I like the concept of dragons and bi-planes in a post apocolypse type world...but anything that focuses on flying I tend to prefer a computer flight sim for so I get the actual feeling of flight. Not sure if a table top RPG could capture the feel for me but maybe. Thanks for the post! I will keep my eyes on it.
