Any planes on releasing the redux versión on itch?
ANNA-X66 (ashcan edition)
A downloadable game
What is this?
It's a tabletop role-playing game! Sorta... This page connects you to the gameplay document for ANNA-X66, a 43-page setting hack/book for Chris McDowall's excellent tabletop role-playing game Electric Bastionland.
In its current form, it's not "stand-alone". A full stand-alone edition, called "ANNA-X66: Redux" is coming to crowdfunding in Feb 2022.
How do I get started now?
Grab 1 to 5 friends, some typical role-playing dice, a few pieces of paper and pencils, the free Electric Bastionland core rules, and the ANNA-X66 PDF linked below.
What is it even like?
This game features...
- Character creation tables for 192 combinations of character types (including the Survivor Technician, Vat-born Living Weapon, Void Child Doomed, and Voracious Fungoid). Your new character might inherit traits or an item when your old character dies.
- Settlements with bustling barter economies: any new item/tool/weapon/snack/trinket can be had, but it might cost you your favourite item, or you might owe the seller an unreasonable favour later.
- A powerful AI named ANNA, who might be your key to survival. Or ANNA might want you to die horrifically, it's hard to say...
- Urban hex-grid hell-scapes, dotted with points of interest and populated by unusual traps, pissed-off killer robots, and lost souls. Your characters are strong and clever, so people in settlements want your help. Exploration and solving big problems are how you level-up.
ANNA-X66 was created for the Eclectic Bastion Jam in August of 2020.
In order to download this game you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $2 USD. You will get access to the following files:

I'm so impressed by this! Congrats! Theme, hexcrawl, minimalist art and character creation are so good! Are there any actual plays out there? I plan to bring it to my group at some point too but I'd love here others play this.
Unfortunately, I didn't create any actual plays during playtesting of this, and haven't been able to find any from others. Let me know if you get it to the table!
Hi there! I'm the creator of the tabletop rpg CBR+PNK and I'm planning a short cyber-themed bundle for Cyber Week (Nov 29th to Dec 3rd).
My aim is to collect about 20 products from around 15 creators in the tabletop gaming space. It would be awesome if you'd join this bundle with this game! Let me know your thoughts on this :)
This looks amazing! I just found it and I can't wait to dive in!
