The Lightning-Fast RPG

BOLT is an lightning-fast action-adventure tabletop RPG built on streamlined gameplay and escalating tension. At its core, BOLT is designed to make players feel like the action movie heroes they’re playing, with a core roll system built to add chaos and a dedicated resource for fudging rolls in tense situations. Combat has characters walk a knife’s edge, with fragile characters and a strategy-focused Action Economy. Any fight, no matter how small, can end in disaster, which makes every victory feel earned. Every roll is interesting. Every encounter resolves quickly. Every failure is a dare to push your luck. This game is also built for hacking from the ground up, with optional rules, instructions for writers to make their own roles, settings, and standalone games, honest commentary on its own mechanics, and a Creative Commons License.
