    Default Replacement for HKAT?

    Me and some buddies were thinking about kicking back as movie stars for a while, but instead of dragging out Hong Kong Action Theater; we wondered if anything new was released to scratch the same itch in the last two decades?

    Not quite the same, but a friend of mine has been pushing for a pro wrestling RPG for a while-- it's a Powered by the Apocalypse system that captures the whole public face/backstage drama bit.

    STaRS (and STaRS Lite)
    A non-narrativeist, generic rules-light system, by me. Now officially released!

    Grod's Guide to Greatness
    A big book of player options for 5e, by me

    Funnily enough, we have used the WWF Basic Adventure Game in the past for a lot of the out-of-movie bits before, where HKAT fell short. If this simulates that as well, it's certainly worth a looking at :)

    I don't have any experience with it myself, but I think Feng Shui is pretty similar.

    I think both were created by Daedalus, actually. But it's the movie and celebrity aspect I am after moreso than the martial arts.

    We may have to just play FATE or something.
