Solid!, the blaxploitation d20 Modern supplement has just been released over at the RPGnow. I may have no business whatsoever playing an 'authentic' black character in an RPG, but I've seen enough Shaft and Dolemite films to allow me to climb on board this particular soul train. And unlike Wyrd Is Bond, the rappers-as-wizards rpg, I won't feel like I'm inadvertedly parodying someone else's urban culture. Dolemite is already ridiculous, if not outright parody of the genre, and you'd have trouble convincing me that Shaft is anything other than an adventure flick with a non-whitebread setting.
