It is 1977, but not the one you read about in history books. Disco is still king and people are lining up around the corner to see a movie set in a galaxy far far away, but some things are different.

"Tricky Dick" Nixon is still President, thanks to a tearful public apology.

Every day, bad things happen to good people. They might be victims of criminals whose numbers seem to increase daily, or maybe the bad guys run million-dollar corporations and will do anything to increase their profits, even if it means putting some of their employees at risk.

Someone has had enough; they are going to step up, fight back and stick it to The Man.

That someone is you.

So slap on your bellbottoms, make sure your afro is straight, and fire up the 8-track, it is time to dispense some justice.

Can you dig it?


This game is inspired by the role-playing game of the same name, published by Monkeyfun Studios and sold at DriveThruRPG.com.

Players control characters who can run the gamut from kung fu tough guys to the "beautiful people" inspiring the latest trend at the nightclub to good old boy gearheads to scarred war veterans and everything in between.

They have joined together to fight back against The Man, who has created a nightmare version of the world we know.
