CJ Ruby's Exploding Aces: A Cinematic RPG is the first original RPG system
from 4 Winds Fantasy Gaming. CJ has been a contributor and designer on
several of our PFRPG-Compatible products, including our critically praised
books Luven Lightfinger's Gear & Treasure Shop and Inkantations: A
Sourcebook of Tattoo Magic & Body Art, and now we are proud to produce this
original system - Exploding Aces.

Exploding Aces is a unique RPG system where the core mechanic uses playing
cards instead of dice to determine success or failure. The flavor of the
system is cinematic and we present it without genre, allowing you to use the
system to emulate your favorite action-oriented films, TV shows, novels or
comics. You can use the system to run survival horror, western, sci-fi,
urban fantasy, action hero, or any number of other genres. It's great for
one-shots or campaigns as well.

A cinematic system?

EA is a cinematic RPG. Action is fast paced (as demonstrated in the video!),
allowing the Director (the person who runs the story) and the Actors (the
players) to focus on storytelling. Also, with using a deck of cards and
knowing which cards (Aces and Jokers) have not yet turned up in the deck, a
level of tension is added to the action as it plays out. Will the Actors
succeed wildly by flipping an Ace that explodes (granting an immediate,
sometimes Sterling, success) or fail stunningly by turning over a Joker that
ends their turn and leads to a botch?
