About Action Fiction

What is Action Fiction?

If you ask Wikipedia, action fiction is a form of genre fiction whose subject matter is characterized by emphasis on exciting and suspenseful scenarios. If you ask us, action fiction is what we do every time we sit down to play tabletop role-playing games with our friends. We tell exciting stories together, we fight off the big bad evil thing, we collect all the treasure and loot, and we save the day. 

That's why, in 2019, during the development of Monsters of Murka, we decided to name ourselves after what we were already doing: and thus, Action Fictionwas born.

What does Action Fiction do?

Our goal is to create games, settings, items, creatures, and entire worlds which bring our flavor of fun to your game table, and to do it in a way that’s respectful, inclusive, clever, and imaginative. We love to tell stories with our publications, and we make games for the kind of gamer who loves a tall tale and a good laugh.

In 2020, we published Monsters of Murka, a high-fantasy parody of the United States, playable as a fifth edition campaign setting. This setting was funded on Kickstarter in 2019 thanks to 229 amazing backers, who helped us to raise over $16,000!



We've gone on to create 2 more expansions to the Monsters of Murka world, including Restaurants and Retail which was successfully crowd funded in 2020 and Chromatic Gamut (out 100% queer lead and designed TTRPG) that was successfully crowd funded in 2021.

Action Fiction is always cooking up something new though. Currently we are working on our first board game: Goblin Cave and a multi-media TTRPG -Name Redacted-.

Why Patreon?

These games are both in the design phase. We learned a lot from Monsters of Murka, and one of the biggest takeaways from that project was the importance of planning ahead. This time around, we're using Patreon to help with art costs along the way, so that our crowdfunding goal can be significantly smaller, allowing us to focus on high-quality print and packaging, as well as fantastic add-ons.

Additionally, Patreon will allow us to create TTRPG content on an on-going basis, like more settings and locations for Murka and let out community get to know all of us as writers.

We have an amazing, diverse team at Action Fiction and we're excited to get to know our supporters better. Be on the look-out for pieces from our Action Fiction leads, and the ever growing writer's network we're developing with the fantastic creators in our community.
