is the cult classic, politically incorrect rpg that no gamer should be without. It may not make rabid fundamentalists foam at the mouth as much as if they found a blood-stained altar in your game room, but it's a lot more legal, and not nearly as messy. Unfortunately, it is also out of print and there is no pdf edition.
Macho Women with Guns is reverse-sexist and blatantly chauvanist role-playing taken to its obvious limit. Everyone has to be busty babes with guns, and the major role-playing goal is to find creative new ways to blow up the established order of things. Where else are you going to find skills like "Run in high heels", "Hit things with other things" and the ever-popular "Do technical stuff"?
History MWwG was created as a response to a slew of blatantly sexist RPG products apparently aimed at horny teenager gamers with Madonna fetishes, in an era when you still had to get most of your porn at sketchy bookstores. My thought was "what are the two elements that make these products fly off the shelves?". The answer was "scantily clad women and guns". So, over the course of an afternoon I designed a game around those principles, got a local artist to illustrate it, and published it without even playtesting it. Damn thing made more money for me than anything I've done since. It's been published in half a dozen languages, licensed for miniatures, gotten me numerous convention invites, and decades later, I'm still the "Macho Women" guy.
The future MWwG will return. Probably as a iPad optimized pdf edition, filled with easter eggs, hidden text, puzzles and as much humor, bad taste and gratuitous violence and skin as I can manage. I want to make something that will generate its own fan site, just so people can put their heads together and try to figure out everything that is in it. It may take a few years, but if you played the original, then you know your kids will want something better...
What you got A book of rules and a short adventure, with your choice of four cover illustrations. You have to supply three six-sided dice. What more do you want? MechanicsNot that they really matter, but characters are built on points around five attributes, special abilities and skills, which use a 3d6 system for resolution. Departure from the rules for humorous effect is strongly encouraged. Supplements The only supplement for Macho Women is More Excuses to Kill Things, which is a pack of new and reprinted role-playing and tactical scenarios for the game, along with a mini-solo adventure in case you just want to play with yourself. It also comes with a neato-keen 17 x 22 poster to annoy your friends with.
