Metal Öpera is a beer-and-pretzels, rules-light Tabletop Game in which you portray a Heavy Metal band IN SPACE!, on the run and fighting The Man. Basically, it's an RPG whose goal is to create the album cover of any great metal album. The rules can be found here.
This Work's Tropes Include:
- Heävy Mëtal Ümlaut: The title.
- Rule of Cool: Due to the way the rules work, it is actually easier to pull off over-the-top stunts than to accomplish the same thing in a more straight-forward way.
- Weapon of Choice: Your Axe. Given the abstract nature of the game, there's no penalty for having the most ludicrous gun you can think of.
