Kickstart Your Weekend: Zorro!

I will admit I have a certain fondness for Zorro.  No surprise really, in him we see the beginnings of what would later become both Indiana Jones and Batman.  So it is not a big surprise to see there is a new Zorro RPG coming out.

Zorro: The Roleplaying Game

I mean we have a Flash Gordon RPG, a John Carter of Mars RPG, and a Conan RPG, Zorro seems like a no-brainer.

The game uses the new d6 2E system; the second edition of the West End Games classic d6 system.  Personally, I think that is a GREAT fit for this.

They made their funding in the first day, but I am certain they will meet their stretch goals too.
For me?  I am hopping that the section of Zorro vs. Dracula gets written.  Zorro's battle with the supernatural (which in a way also gave us Santo) were always my favorites.

The first stretch goal has been reached and it will be an adventure from the OSR's own James Spahn.

Anyway. Check it out!

I think this looks like a fun one. I noticed that Diogo is also slated to write a stretch goal, which is cool. He's one of my fav OSR people. He's always so positive and supportive.

Backed yesterday. I had to. when I was a kid, I didn't want to be Superman or Batman, but Zorro. and while this particular series is from the 90s, I still get chills when I hear it! :)

I love Zorro. But how can you make a cooperative game that centers around a single protagonist (NPC or not)?
