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 board games and 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. Thus, Action Fiction was born.

What Does Action Fiction Do?

Our goal is to create games, settings, items, creatures, and entire worlds that 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! Its second expansion, Monsters of Murka: Restaurants & Retail, went to Kickstarter in September 2020 and raised over $82,000!
