From publisher blurb:
What is the velocity of justice? Many say it’s difficult to quantify-- that it even evades common metrics of measurement or full understanding by the rule of law. One thing’s for sure, however: you should be able to gauge it as it comes hurtling towards you. Hands grip steering wheels as rubber grips concrete. Seedy underbellies trade bullets with the law and set moral shades of gray ablaze. Napalm and nitrous are as indispensable as your ability to hack or maneuver cold machinery.
Inspired by action movies like the Fast & Furious franchise, Rush Hour, or Bad Boys and anime like Initial D-- Justice Velocity puts you in the driver’s seat. It’s an exercise in collaborative storytelling that puts the stakes of a race or the fate of deadly computer viruses up to your players’ skills, abilities, and the roll of the dice.
Justice Velocity is 2d6-based and relatively rules-lite. All you need to play are some standard 6-sided dice, some pens and paper, the book, and a group of friends. With quick and easy character design, Justice Velocity invites tabletop newcomers and veterans alike to leap quickly into the action movie universe. The core book covers Character Creation, Vehicle Rules, Abilities, Items & Equipment, an Adventure Synopsis, and more!
Justice Velocity is a game of heists, hijinks, espionage, and fast cars. The game's mechanics encourage players to push situations into overdrive with High Octane Mode and spend Juice Points on triggering wild abilities. There are also a variety of rules for conducting high speed chases, street races, and vehicular combat so that you can always keep the action rolling:
- Octane Chips - Octane Chips are used once per session to trigger High Octane Mode. Players slam their chip on the table and receive a bonus to any roll--giving them the boost they need to make the impossible happen.
- Juice and Abilities - Players can expend Juice Points to trigger Abilities such as Ultimate Drift, Gunslinger, and Activated Strength.
- Dynamic Vehicle Rules - Whether it's a drag race to the next light or a chase sequence throughout the entire city, Justice Velocity lays out vehicle rules no game master should be without, including: Position-Based Racing, Cumulative Racing, and Car Combat/Action Sequences. There's even a table for generating random events during vehicle sequences such as back alley shortcuts, banana peel hazards, and oil spills.
