"Here's a little story that must be told..."

The world's fallen apart and the pieces have been divvied up between corporations-turned-governments. People either toil endlessly in Babylon--the hollowed out metropolises run by greedy City Lords--or struggle to survive in villages just outside of irradiated wastes. Amidst the darkness, you and your Crew have been given a Gift to bring the world some light.

The Game

In Shoot The Gift, you'll travel a wasteland, using Hip Hop to literally and figuratively change the world.

RIYL: Recommended If You Like

Dystopian YA fiction (ex. Hunger Games, Maze Runner, The Giver), 90s and early 00s rap, the comic series Phonogram, and road trips.

The Pack

In this AGON playset, you'll find:

  • Character creation based on one of four Instruments (The Mic, The Beat, The Moves, or The Paint) through which you'll focus your powers.
  • A new take on the Vault of Heaven and Islands called The Old Line, a series of long dormant mass transit routes. 
  • Eight Stops--eight full adventures on The Old Line--inspired by the Hip Hop and local color of different regions across the United States.
