Little kids and big guns. 'Nuff said. A stand-alone adaption of Heavy Ordnance to the Risus engine.
Welcome to Heavy Ordnance Lite. Heavy Ordnance is a satirical Roleplaying Game where the players play prepubescent school children with large military surplus weaponry. A nasty accident, involving some weapons grade plutonium and the cafeteria meat loaf, has blasted portions of your hometown into the many levels of hell; and all citizens the elder side of puberty have been turned into brain sucking monsters. Luckily, your Elementary School was built next door to the local National Guard base, and you and the rest of your fifth grade class have armed themselves. Now all you have to do is figure out which end of the bazooka is the business end, before the Principal smashes down the door and snacks on your entrails.
Christoper Blankley and S. John Ross did not knowingly participate in creating this item. Rather their words were used to create the text of the game, and so they are credited as designers.
As David Masad explains:
"Despite the fact that my name is stuck on top of this document, I actually wrote very little of it. The rules are taken word-for-word the original Risus rules (with Bully replacing Barbarian, and other changes to bring them into the Heavy Ordnance context), and the setting section and sample adventure are taken word-for-word from the original Heavy Ordnance game (with some typos and grammar errors corrected). All I've done is mesh the two systems together."
