For fan of comics and/or RPGs, the DIE RPG is here to do what other tabletop adaptations of things couldn’t — make something good and fun to play.

“The second you describe DIE as ‘You’re people in a game playing a game, playing a game’ it becomes weirdly distancing,” Gillen noted, “But in reality, DIE is emotional, immediate, and affecting. When people make the persona verses the player they get to the heart of human roleplay, but this is, of course, really fucking meta.”

I have never needed reasons to be “the dumb one” in any tabletop game, but this article makes it the clearest possible choice.

Just leaving this here, for your consideration.

An excellent comics anthology Kickstarter you should through money at — Memento Mori is a short story comics anthology all about death and new beginnings.
