If the contents are half as amazing as the above cover is, we'll have a true parody winner.
Now, if you ask me if I would actually run Diapers & Daycares, the answer is no - except maybe as a one-shot at a gaming convention. In that role, it has potential. Instead, it's something that will likely sit on a table, waiting for a fellow gamer to make a remark about it.
Diapers & Daycares: Parents Handbook, A Parody RPG Your Basic RPG Parody Vol. II is 8 bucks in PDF and 12 bucks (plus 9 bucks shipping in the US) for Print plus PDF. I don't normally comment on shipping prices, but this seems a bit steep. I don't expect they are adding pencils or dice to the package, so media mail would likely suffice, and it's priced at the moment at $3.49. Heck, I'm in for the print myself but thought this should be mentioned so no one is surprised.
Prepare for the role-playing game of a lifetime: PARENTHOOD.
YOU WILL use all of your wits and abilities to survive.
YOU WILL be pushed to the limits of your endurance, and beyond.
YOU WILL see, hear, and smell things beyond your wildest imagination.
Welcome to the world of Diapers and Daycares™, the ultimate in non-stop, ear-splitting, headache-inducing action.
What kind of parent will you be? The Multi-tasker, the Coach, or the Time-Traveler? How about the Druid or the Cyborg? Choose from these and other exciting character classes, each with its own unique traits and special abilities.
Show your courage as you face impossible obstacles, from the baby-sitter who calls in sick to the insurance company customer-service rep. After all, how much is your out-of-pocket maximum for families? Roll a Knowledge Arcana check, add your Intelligence modifier, and hope for the best.
Oh--and please hold.
Diapers and Daycares™ is a fully playable d20 parody for parents and role-players alike, or for role-playing parents. Or the people who love them.
Or for people without children who just want a good laugh…and a sigh of relief.
All in 36+ black and white illustrated pages, with full-color cover!
(9 bucks to ship? Why?)
