I just got hold of Agon (http://www.agon-rpg.com/)
. And it looks very interesting -- the PC's are Greek heroes and therefore very
competitive -- in fact, trying to show up the other guys is a major point of the game. Wanton slaughter is another major point; 300 would be easy to set up in this sucker.
Agon is sort af D&D-ish, high on steroids and balls, but light on rules and other distractions. I can't wait to try it out with my kill-crazy D&D-worshipping friends!
(From the official website) "AGON is a competitive RPG set in a fantastic version of ancient Greece similar to that of the Illiad and the Odyssey. The heroes work together against the enemies and obstacles created by the Antagonist, but the players compete to win the most glory for their heroes.The player who earns the most glory wins the game.
AGON features a fast and intuitive battle system in which the players hold dice in their right and left hands to represent the weapons and defenses of their heroes. When the hero swings a sword, the player rolls her right hand dice. When the hero deflects a blow with her shield, the left hand dice are rolled. The battle system can also be used for other types of conflict, including chases, wrestling matches, and even non-physical battles like a duel of wits, in which the heroes fight with Insight and Spirit as their "weapons."
AGON supports short-form play (1 to 5 sessions) as well as long-term campaign play."
