We Hunt Bugs is a lightweight table-top RPG about hunting alien bugs in space. This game is meant for fast-paced adventures with action and adventure in every scene. Add in some behind-the-scenes evil corporate machinations, and you are ready to take your game to the next level.
We Hunt Bugs Second Edition is based on the Open-Orcs RPG System and uses a small pool of six-sided dice to decide outcomes. Through years of test play, we have found that this gives the players many options and outcomes, but still moves the game along quickly.
Giant monsters would find their way to wriggle onto our ship unnoticed. These monsters took the look and form of insects from our homeworlds. Whatever the means of their existence might be, their reason for existing seems to be to eliminate everyone traveling at light-speed through space. Their mission is always the same; board a spaceship, eat the inhabitants, make the ship inoperable, and starve to death on the derelict vessel. It’s strange that despite their origin, they can’t seem to survive out in space. This fact has the lead researchers into Jägerentomology scratching their heads.
This is where you come in, the grunts who will purge these bugs from this universe, one at a time. You may choose to do it to save others, you may choose to for the good of mankind, you may choose to for some extra coin; any way you slice it, you’re a bug hunter. Bug hunters hop from infested ship to infested ship, collecting bounties for any bugs slain, or any people saved. It’s dangerous, but honest work. Usually, you will send in a clone to do the dirty work, but clones ain’t cheap, and the bug hunter core won’t let you go so easily once you’ve signed the paperwork. So if you don’t make enough to clone yourself, you gotta do the dirty work yourself, and hope the real you don’t get eaten trying to make a quick buck. Bug hunting ain’t a glorious life either, a good mission for a bug hunter is when all the bugs on a ship are slain with no hunter casualties; saving a person or two is often a rare occurrence. For this reason, bug hunters are not appreciated much by the public. You’re just a lazy clone of a lazy grunt showing up late to reclaim property from infestation. Little more than a scavenger.
