The Shattered City
A downloadable game
This is a Victorian-inspired tabletop roleplaying game with light elements of steampunk and survival horror. You will take on the role of an amnesiac working as a scavenger and guard protecting the last remnants of humanity, huddled behind makeshift walls while the literal end of all reality tears at the border of a City that is all that remains of the world that used to be.
You’re not sure who you used to be, though you have some fuzzy memories of your life before the City. Nobody knows what City this is, what happened to the rest of the world, or why reality is warping itself into oblivion. All you know is that the people in charge are trying to fix things, the machine at the center of the Outpost is keeping everyone alive, and it’s your job to venture out into the madness to scavenge for supplies, recover fuel for the machine, and try to keep the civilians of the Outpost safe from the twisted monsters that now roam what’s left of the City.
Appropriate for one-shot games or medium-length campaigns of serialized missions, with advancement coming in the form of changes to the setting rather than the characters. Requires at least one six-sided die to play, but works best with three six-sided dice per player. Two different types of tokens are suggested to keep track of resources. Character details fit on an index card.
