Loop ‘n’ Loot is a poker-inspired, roguelite Tabletop Role-Playing Game.
Conflict resolutions are settled only with a deck of normal playing cards and easy-to-grasp combinations that take inspiration from poker, such as “Pair” and “Flush”. Roguelite is a popular video game genre, and has been digested in a pen & paper experience that follow these principles:
- Permanent Death – When your character reaches 0 Life Force, it dies. No save, no second chance. Actually, when a character in the party dies, the whole party dies! Don’t worry, dying is part of the journey.
- Level-less – You can do anything you want, regardless of your experience or where you are. The system was made to have your actions and creativity shine more than your character’s statistics. Characters progress throught deck manipulations and by learning new Soul Traits.
- Reset – When your character dies, you lose all your equipment and money as your Soul reincarnates into a new body. You keep only Soul Traits from body to body. Starting Gear, Spells, Items and Attributes are randomly generated.
