Cinematic Roleplaying With Style

Tide Breaker is a Tabletop RPG system that lets you step into the role of hyper-competent heroes and explore worlds that your group creates together from the ground up. Customize your abilities, get involved in clandestine plots, and engage in epic battles straight out of your favorite action movie against numbers that would overwhelm almost anyone! Of course, it’d just be a warm-up for you. At least until the Big Bad shows up.

In Tide Breaker, if cinematographic combat is not your style, roleplaying your way and speaking through discussion to persuade anyone with your masterful diplomacy to make sure you get your way is always a great option. Of course, unless, you’ve spun yourself into a web losing all
Hope, spelling out your Doom.

Hope and Doom are meta-currencies that may be used in both combat and non-combat situations. While the GM uses Doom as their resource, the players use Hope, and the tug of war of this instrumental currency conflict plays symphonic tidal waves through the roleplaying experience. The clever use of Hope and Doom will offer your table a strategic gameplay options easily weave-able into the fabric of your group's campaigns and settings. The Stunt System within Tide Breaker allows you to fully customize your character’s and NPC’s abilities, creating some of the utmost unique and amazing creations where only your imagination is the limit.

Impress your friends with
Showstoppers, where the best stunts
Ignite, exploding your chances of success into imaginative theatrical moments that you will never forget.
