Post Apocalyptic Post

So in keeping with global catastrophes, it would seem that the Italian based Apocalypse game planned for the forthcoming rotation has failed its timely arrive roll. I suppose that's sort of post ironic but on the other hand we can just leave it until next time and it will be something to look forward to, though I'm always curious as to where the end of civilisations may take us. Of course it depends on the circumstances but in broad terms pandemics breed zombies, nuclear wars breed mutants, computers breed paranoia and aliens just breed.

We have already enjoyed a few great PA games over the years and the Wikipedia article is quite faithful in this respect. Its noteworthy that they list Eclipse Phase which we have played and which I very much enjoyed; a sort of Altered Carbon meets The Thing. An "eclipse phase" is the period between when a cell is infected by the virus and when the virus appears within the cell and transforms it. During this period, the cell does not appear to be infected, but it is.

I also recall The Morrow Project from my younger days which was reborn in 4th edition from its faithful fan base in 2013 but whilst I've not heard much feedback it still remains in retail. But I like the idea of characters blearily waking up from stasis pods in the far flung future.

So in a more present time frame GM Krzys will be advancing a Superhero kick starter, I believe in play test before its full release, as we continue to be more cutting edge than the Samurai version of Sweeny Todd.


  1. Post Apocalypse - is that when a nuclear bomb hits the Royal Mail depot?

  2. Nick, sending Nuclear weapons through the post is illegal, don't do it, even if its a kickstarter.

  3. I doubt such primitive a concept as Law would impede Nick in any way...
