Doctor Who RPG

So I missed this little bit on 1 August...

If you're a fan of Matt Smith's Doctor more than David Tenant's 10th doctor, then happy days for you!

The Eleventh Doctor version of The Doctor Who RPG is now available at Cubicle 7.

Now we got to play Doctor Who at Kingdom Con 2, and it was a blast. But we have the 10th Doctor edition, which Sean is supposed to be running and reporting on soon...so stand by...

One of the things I really like about the Doctor Who system is the way successes and failures are done.

Success and...
Success
Success but...
Failure but...
Failure
and
Failure AND...

It makes it easier for the Game Master to tell a story. Here's some examples:

You're able to hack into the system, and you are able to loopback the system so it is relaying the same image over and over to the guards.
You're able to hack the system, what now?
You're able to hack the system, but you alerted the guards to your presence
You fail to hack the system, but you didn't alert the guards
You fail to hack the system, care to try again?
You not only don't hack the security system, AND you activate deadlock...
