Welcome to the PledgeManager for Convictor Drive: Armored by Grief - Japanese Anime TRPG!
If you missed our campaign, don't dismay! Just choose an option below.

 

 

 

 

 

  • The only true tabletop roleplaying game inspired by tokusatsu and superhero anime shows, developed by a Japanese design team, that captures the essence, action, and over-the-top combat of series like Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, Power Rangers, Ultraman, and My Hero Academia!
  • Beautiful art from the infinitely talented artist Temi!
  • Convictor Drive debuted at number 1 for the month of May 2019 on the Yellow Submarine sales charts (Japan's leading sales reporter for tabletop games), illustrating how well-received it was in Japan!
  • A streamlined D10 system that’s perfect for genre newcomers and veterans alike who are looking for a different kind of gameplay experience!
  • A lovingly-crafted game from one of Japan's most popular RPG designers, Sigre (designer of our previous localization project Picaresque Roman); a designer who has nearly ten titles under his belt, half of which have been commercial releases!
  • A unique setting and premise that, on the surface, is about action heroes fighting big baddies but beneath the surface is actually about grappling with trauma, trying to make sense of it, and then using it to overcome challenges and help other people.
  • The game is effectively finished! We're bringing Convictor Drive to Kickstarter nearly finished (we are finishing up our last editing pass and then want to send out the first round of PDFs as a sort of mass-proofing exercise before updating the files and sending out the final version)!
  • Get the books early! By backing the campaign, you get the books (and PDFs, of course) months before they go to retail!
  • Exclusive rewards and stretch goal unlocks that are only available to backers of the campaign.

 

 

We're expecting a fairly quick turnaround for the physical copies of Convictor Drive. We're using a similar formula/rewards structure as our last TTRPG, so there will be less back-and-forth with the printer on providing proofs, which oftentimes is the part of the process that slows things down. Moreover, the supply chain woes of the last two years, while still very present, are not what they were even just six months ago. We're optimistic that this will make international shipping less of a bottleneck than it's been since mid-2020.

What's even better news, though, is the fact that you won't have actually wait that long to start playing the game as backers will get early access to the PDFs shortly after the campaign ends. (We'll be using DriveThruRPG again to deliver all of our PDF content). We will be sending out the first PDFs as a sort of draft; by doing this, we're hoping that having hundreds of eyes on the book will catch things that our small team of a few sets of eyes could not and did not. After we get feedback from that round, we'll update the books with the edits and then let people know that they can download the updated book from their DriveThru library.
