For day 9 of RPGaDay, I am asked what media I wish was an RPG.

This is tough, since most everything has been made into an RPG, but I really like the Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks and as far as I can tell (or Google can), it’s not been done yet. The series is well written and plays strongly to my favoured thieves’ world type setting.

The novels focus on the life of a gutter kid who becomes the ultimate assassin/ninja and then  atones for his sins by becoming the Night Angel, essentially Batman, helping people and righting wrongs. It sounds hokey, but is a lot of fun and could make a very cool setting.

More awesomeness...
