Ever want to be The Doctor Or maybe a companion Or even another traveller making his or her way through time and space This is the game for you Simple rules that are easy to pick up and emphasize the story over the structure A good choice for experienced players who are maybe not experts but also not entirely new to role playing The rules are a bit too losey goosey for some one who may never have played a game before but at the same time not so laden dow
This is a pretty cool game I like a lot of aspects of the system, including the way most things are kept fairly simple The core mechanic is 2d6 stat skill versus a target number, which I imagine should work pretty well Of course, you can spend metagame points to alter things in various ways I like that different characters might have smaller or large pools of Story Points to help balance things I also like that there are only twelve skills, which keeps everything nice and simple, especially for new players And, of course, the way that combat is organized so that talkers go first and fighters go last is pretty cool and does a good job emulating the show.In general, this feels like it s pretty friendly to first time roleplayers, although I feel like the device rules might be a little complex I mean, I m fine with them, but I m not sure how intuitive they are Still, there are some pre made devices, characters, and aliens, and I m sure there s plenty stuff already statted out in supplements This book is, for the most part, enough on its own, at least to get started The info on time travel is rather abbreviated, and the same goes for the monster
A good, rules light approach to role playing games It is reminiscent of West End Games approach as well as the upcoming Metamorphosis Alpha, 5th edition.
