UmlautLong of hair and tight of pants, you join the ranks of Metal in your quest for babes, booze and glory. Try to Make It Big and hunt down an elusive record contract.”

Umläut: Game of Metal is an interesting looking RPG about forming a heavy metal band.  The system is GM-less, and relies on the person to the left of the active player to be their “Roadie” and help resolve conflict in the game.

The website gives a brief overview of the game, and has some sample files to download. Looking over everything, I’m actually intrigued by how the system seems to work. There are several stages to the game, including: rehearsal, the show itself, and the cleanup afterwards.

The PDF version of the game is $10, which a print version coming soon for around $20.
