Reaver groups are a constant part of the world after the Rising. While some scavenge the ruins for anything they can pull from Mr. Hungry’s grasp, the focus in this book is on the scumbags who roll in, kill everyone, and take what they want. These people act more like locusts than like humans, swooping down on a settlement, killing everyone, often destroying the Haven, grabbing what they want, and then leaving.

Unlike Marauders 1 and Fleshmongers 1 and 2, this book doesn’t really track any one particular group, but rather provides some generic trash for you to label and throw at the PCs. Future Marauders supplements will showcase specific groups, usually broken down by size and professionalism.

Not much to update this weekend, we have uploaded a new set of stock art from John Picot (Art by Shinkei: Robots 1) which is now available from RPGNow priced $3.50.

And whilst I am talking about John, it’s his Birthday today, so Happy Birthday John 🙂

I have done some more work on Shadow of the Zombie and the Ghoul is now complete. Next stop Jiang Shi.

I have also started work mapping the decks of the SS Pluto (the Starship for the upcoming Dead Future Adventure “Pluto Rising”), with 2 of the 20 decks now mapped, and the 3rd in progress. As usual I am designing the decks ‘clean’ and will add a Dead Future layer with the blood, etc. This means that we can also use the Pluto for a d20 Future supplement at some point without major re-working.

Anyway that’s it for this weekend, more as it comes.

Nite all

New Books in Print

Posted: August 11, 2011 in Product Release

The proofs have arrived and we can now announce that the following are available in print from Lulu.com.

 Dead Future Rebooted. Dead Future Rebooted is a campaign template for d20 games and Year of the Zombie set in the future, that can have slight effects that are quietly silenced and hidden from the general public, or galaxy changing events that will forever change the lives of those who survive depending on the wishes of those participating in the campaign. Includes data on the human threat as well as environmental threats, cybernetic and other scifi enhancments and their effects on the risen. This is an expanded copy of the original Dead Future, and now includes over 70 pages of new material including new aliens, robots, equipment, rules and zombies. New and improved art features throughout. This also includes a startup mini-adventure for the Dead Future Universe (Vacuum Packed Death) and complete battlemaps for the adventure.

Priced at £14.99 from http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/year-of-the-zombie-dead-future-rebooted/16449401

 

 

Killing Winter is an adventure for the Brass, Blood and Steam, supplement for the SotC SRD. You will need Brass, Blood and Steam (also from UKG Publishing) and a copy of the SotC SRD in order to run it “as written”, though it should be quite easy to adapt to any steampunk or generic games system. This adventure is set in Queen Victoria’s Land, the sample campaign background in Brass, Blood and Steam and follows directly from the sample adventure, Diamonds in the Snow.

And finally, Powder, Passion & Plunder

On the face of it, there should be nothing romantic about pirates. They take hard-earned money and goods away by force – typically accompanied by torture, murder and rape. And yet there is still something attractive about a life of adventure, freedom and lived without responsibility. SotC is a OGL role-playing game written by Evil Hat Productions and based on their FATE system. This supplement contains additional rules to tailor SotC to the pirate genre. If you don’t want to use this game, the information will be useful for any tabletop campaign. As well as the rules, this book also contains a history of piracy (both in reality and in fiction) and looks at the enduring appeal of these “wolves of the sea” and what we find attractive about characters like Long John Silver and Captain Jack Sparrow that are as magnificent as they are malevolent. This book should allow you, the GM, to create games that tap into these tropes to provide a more enjoyable experience for your players and yourself.

We are pleased to announce the release of the 5th SotC supplement from Richard Fannon, Powder, Passion & Plunder. Like the other supplements such as Brass, Blood and Steam, this books takes a look at a new genre of roleplaying for the SotC RPG, and in this case its the classic Pirates.

Following on from Fleshmongers, UKG Publishing are please to announce the release of Fleshmongers 2 for Year of the Zombie, available from RPGNow priced at $8.00

Year of the Zombie: Fleshmongers 2 brings another batch of the worst of the worst to your Post Apocalyse game.

Whether you are running Year of the Zombie, Nuclear Aftermath or some other Post Apocalypse scenerio, Fleshmongers 2 has a cast of loathsome NPC Slavers for your PCs to butt heads with and despatch.

This 70 page pdf includes:

  • Sample slaver groups and NPC’s, documented at various points in time as the Rising progresses.
  • Printer friendly version

Or to put it in the Words of the Author “It was once noticed by a reviewer that the bad guys in Year of the Zombie are all assholes with bad hygiene and no redeeming qualities. This pattern repeats in this supplement, as I plan on showing Fleshmongers as the worst of the worst, the bottom of Post-Rising society, and some of the most disgusting parasites out there. This book is probably one of the most grueling for me to write, and this one pulls no punches. The NPC’s detailed in this supplement are the positively worst that I’ve designed. These people are absolutely disgusting, the worst of the worst, ones that are so bad that other villains want them dead, hate them, hate them and fear them. This is a book of villains, their tactics, their methods, their equipment, and how they operate. No glory, no misunderstood diamonds in the rough that just need a little bit of guidance, no showing a better society through slavery. I wholly suggest that the PC’s be allowed to kill these assholes wherever they find them without feeling pangs of conscience or shades of gray, and to that end I crafted nothing but scumbags, losers, and assholes. -T Willard

WARNING! FLESHMONGERS IS RATED M FOR:
VIOLENCE

SERIOUSLY THESE NPCs ARE NOT NICE PEOPLE!
