The Expanse Roleplaying Game is Tabletop RPG published by Green Ronin in 2019 after a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign.

The game takes place during the book series continuity, with much of the initial content set between Leviathan Wakes and Caliban's War.

Tropes:Critical Existence Failure: Averted. Instead of HP, the game uses a luck-based system for avoiding damage, with the player opting to spend a limited supply of "fortune points" to negate damage, or to take damage and incur "conditions" (such as "Injured" or "Wounded") which impact the players ability to take actions.—-

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is a comic series written and illustrated by writer-artist team Akira Himekawa, who have also brought you other comic adaptations from the video game series, but this is by far their longest adaptation from the video game The Legend of Zelda series. This comic adapts the video game entry of the same name from said series.Like the video game, the comic stars protagonist Link from the peaceful Toal Village ("a certain village"). When tragedy strikes, he must respond to his higher calling. Beautiful art and extra details to the game.Be careful, this comic series has more inappropriate stuff than the game like blood and gore. Be careful because the audience isn't the same as the original game, a little older.


How well does it match the trope?
