Kong: Skull Island Cinematic Adventure (2023)
The Kong: Skull Island Cinematic Adventure[a] is a campaign and supplementary sourcebook designed for Evil Genius Games' tabletop roleplaying game Everyday Heroes. It is a part of their "Cinematic Adventures" line of products featuring new storylines based on popular movie properties, including Rambo and Pacific Rim. While its main campaign, "Sliver of the Skull," takes place in 2015, a few months after the events of the 2014 Godzilla film, it profiles monsters, characters, equipment, and vehicles from various periods of the Monsterverse to encourage homebrew storytelling. The digital version of the sourcebook was released in early 2023, and a physical edition followed on June 1, 2023.
The level-three campaign present in the book, "Sliver of the Skull", is set in 2015. Monarch agents team with Kong to defeat a provoked Titan endangering Skull Island. The New Rules section also provides three brief template adventures bringing players into conflict with Titans, as well as four adventure ideas set on Skull Island.
Everyday Heroes is an RPG tabletop gaming system. It is based on d20 Modern and the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons, adapted to suit campaigns set in the real world's modern era. The most significant rule introduced in the Kong: Skull Island Cinematic Adventure is Titanic Scale, reflecting the impossibility of humans defeating Titans in head-to-head combat. The others are Absolute Armor, for especially resilient enemies; Cinematic Actions, which make certain enemies more dangerous to players; Combat Complications such as tidal waves and landslides; Combat Conditions, broken into terrain, weather, and natural traps; and a more challenging Survival Mode.
