The Real Thing is a self-contained, story-driven, pen-and-paper tabletop role-playing game (TTRPG) inspired by the music of Faith No More. Specifically, the game draws on significant story elements and inspiration from Faith No More’s album from 1989 entitled The Real Thing. It was groundbreaking at the time and remains one of the best albums ever created.  More to the point, however, is the fact that many of the songs revolve around similar themes and ideas, making it a perfect album around which to craft a concept RPG.

As a Powered by the Apocalypse game, the system is lightweight and fun, and the creators have added a kick! A new mechanism called Discovery allows players to quickly create a character concept, then expand upon that character as the story unfolds. They simultaneously discover who they are while uncovering the nature of the story and the world around them.
