Get the official Faith No More RPG!

It contains everything a gamer needs to play, run, and enjoy gritty early 1990s roleplaying at its finest, complete with themes and story elements taken directly from the 1989 Faith No More album of the same name. The book is 128 high-quality pages, complete with full art.

About the Game:

As a Powered by the Apocalypse game, the system is lightweight and fun, and the creators have added a kick! A new mechanism called Discovery allows players to quickly create a character concept, then expand upon that character as the story unfolds. They simultaneously discover who they are while uncovering the nature of the story and the world around them. 

The Real Thing RPG was written with a few themes taken directly from Faith No More’s body of work:

What is true? The story begins with questions, mysteries, and intrigue. The players make their way through the story with a combination of curiosity, confusion, and resilience, and in the end, they learn the truth about a whole lot of things.

Who are we, really? Throughout the game, players will be crafting stories about their characters and learning more about who they have been, using a custom mechanism called “Discovery.” They simultaneously get to remember and become who they are.

Maybe it ain’t all bad. Most of the story involves uncovering personal fiction, many of which are dark and disheartening. These characters got where they are because of bad luck, bad choices, and social ills, after all. That said, at the bottom of the downward spiral there is an opportunity to realize that there is hope and light.
