From the publisher's website:
All you need to know are three rules...
Rule #1: Don't take the job lightly.
Rule #2: There's always another way.
Rule #3: Don't get caught.
Some of us just don't fit in with the rest of the world. Sure, we can hold down a steady job, collect a paycheck, raise a family, and blend in, but not without stirring up the shit. Trying to be something you're not comes out eventually. Aggression, anger, drug abuse, whatever your poison is. Some of us have demons. Some of us have issues. But some of us - a select few - have a gift we can't deny.
Someone has to do what needs doing. Someone's gotta pull the trigger and someone's gotta die. That's the job.
There's the recruitment end of the speech. The truth is a lot harder, the work more in depth than the brochure would have you believe. It's not just about spraying the mark's blood all over the back wall, it's about the stakeout, the plan, and the escape. Because once you pull that trigger, you'll never have a peaceful night's sleep again.
It's the gritty world of professional hitmen, contract killers, and assassins; the world of Killshot. An upcoming roleplaying game designed with the Optional System, players take on unique roles as bombers, snipers, executioners, hunters, and infiltrators, develop unique skills, options, and reactions to create part of an elite team of deadly killers.
Killshot's designed to provide players with an intense, immersive experience using the flexibility and rapid pace of the Optional System combined with the strategy and co-operation of a tactical war game. Players must devise a plan of action to get the job done right or find themselves staring at the rest of their lives behind bars. Every phase of the job bears equal importance and is not complete until the players have successfully made off without leaving any clues.
