Someone screwed the timeline up

It’s 2150, and the Earth’s starting to get over the Great Apocalypse of 1906. From the steampunk sky-cities of Isla Aether and High Tortuga, airship pirates ply the clouds, in search of excitement and booty, kept in check only by the might of the Imperial Air Navy.

Down below, North America is a wilderness, its beast-haunted wastelands criss-crossed by the tracks of the freedom-loving Neobedouins and the armoured railroads that connect the Emperor’s widely scattered domains.

In the walled, smog-shrouded cities, people huddle in forced Victorian squalor, lorded over by the upper classes, while the Emperor’s clockwork policemen patrol the streets and the ultimate threat of the Change Cage hangs over those who would rebel.

You’ve got yourself an airship. You’ve got yourself a crew. You’ve got yourself one of Doctor Calgori’s fancy chronominautilus devices. All you need now is a good swig of rum (trust us, you’ll need it), and you’re ready to set sail on the winds of time and plunder history itself!

Who knows, maybe you can screw up the timeline some more?

With a crew of drunken pilots
We’re the only airship pirates
We’re full of hot air and we’re starting to rise
We’re the terror of the skies but a danger to ourselves

From the music of renowned steampunk band Abney Park
From the true (honest!) tales of Captain Robert of the airship Ophelia
From the creators of the Clockwork & Chivalry and Victoriana RPGs
comes the ultimate steampunk role-playing experience…

Ruined empires of days gone by.”

– Abney Park

When the governor of Isla Aether approaches you with a treasure map pointing the way to ancient ruins filled with valuable technology, it seems like an easy job.

How Will Your Power Change the World?

In 1967, one woman inexplicably gains inconceivable power. Trying to use that power for the good of her country, she unwittingly passes it on to a handful of people. They pass it along to others in turn.

Soon thousands of men and women around the world have amazing powers. Some of them use their powers for their own personal gain or gratification. Others try to help those around them. Some change the very course of world events.

Progenitor is a Wild Talents roleplaying game setting that explores the shape of the world as we knew it in the last part of the 20th century—and the changes that are wrought by metahumans year by year. It tracks the alternate history of the world in rich detail from the moment the Progenitor, Amanda Sykes, gains her incredible powers, to the year when a single low-powered metahuman nearly destroys the Earth, to Amanda Sykes’ strange departure from the global scene. The world is yours to build and explore using the rules in this book.

Progenitor includes:

  • Dozens of fascinating characters described in depth, plus the world-spanning movements and new nations that they establish.
  • Social Metrics: rules and guidelines for shaping the course of history as you play and exploring how the world reacts to the players’ actions. A “one roll” chart generates major developments year by year that can be built into new scenarios and entire campaigns.
  • Guidelines for gadgeteers’ effects on society.
  • Rules for “syntergenics,” memes crafted by activists with superhuman intelligence to affect human behavior with an image and to change the world with an idea.

There is endless room for player characters to shape history for good or for ill—or to simply try to protect the things that matter to them most as the pressures around them build and build. . . .

“This is probably the best-written supers campaign I have ever run across. Detailed, imaginative, and full of so many plot hooks you can run games for years out of this book.” —RPG Geek review.

“For a modern supers game with a heavy dose of the real world, exactly what Wild Talents does best, I’m hard pressed to imagine a more enjoyable setting to explore. If you enjoy supers, alternate history, good rules, and great writing, then take a look at Progenitor.” — RPG.net review.

Savage battlecries and screams of pain echo through the streets and off the raw sheer walls that make up the carved stronghold of Forstor Nagar. The cannibalistic troops of The Hungering Legion have breached the gates, and the defenders have been routed.

Trapped in the heart of Forstor Nagar, the ambassador from Ithulandis, the City of Adventure, must be rescued. But the redoubt is cut from the living ice of the Forstorheim glacier, and enemies rip the very life from the inhabitants. Only scant hours remain before the alleys are slick with a crimson slush.

Adventurers must cross the invaders’ lines to infiltrate the fortress, locate the diplomatic compound and escape with the ambassador before filed teeth sink into their flesh and the fate of the city is sealed forever. Will they succeed, or just become more corpses for the conquerers’ larder? Welcome to the Breaking of Forstor Nagar!

Mysterious, wild and beautiful, Scotland in the 1920s is home to horrors modern and ancient, man-made and star-born. From the rolling pastoral Lowlands to the snow-capped peaks of the Highlands and the seaweed-choked Western Isles, creatures and cultures have taken root in Scotland whose maddening, corrupting influence can be felt far and wide. Fiendish things haunt the hive-like alleys and wynds of old Edinburgh, while Glasgow’s streets whisper with rumours of dark terrors in the shipyard shadows on the snaking, poisonous Clyde. And in the isles, murmurs on fishing boats and ferries speak of far older things, of sites of power and standing stones, awakenings and stirrings in forgotten places. Something terrifying lurks in the night, casting dark shadows over Scotland.

Shadows over Scotland is a massive new hardback sourcebook for Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game covering Scotland in the 1920s. It features:

  • three comprehensive sections detailing the Lowlands, Highlands and Islands
  • individual sections on history, folklore, language and life in 1920s Scotland
  • a complete mythos timeline
  • detailed coverage of nine cities and their various inhabitants
  • seven sinister adventures complete with extensive handouts

A crazy cult plans to destroy the world — not just a school or the boring grown-up shops at the mall, but the WHOLE WORLD — and it’s up to you to stop them.

Now you and your friends, and your horrible friendly monsters, are taking on the Cult of the Ur-Monster from one end of the United States to the other. You’ll explore creepy amusement parks, dusty tourist traps, and quaint roadside farms in the throes of violent revolution. Also, the land of Oz.

ROAD TRIP is a full-length adventure campaign for the roleplaying game Monsters and Other Childish Things, with NINE complete adventures, ideas for plenty of extra weirdness the players might encounter on the way, and six full-color, full-size postcards from some of the strangest places in America.

ROAD TRIP is written by Ross Payton (Curriculum of Conspiracy) and illustrated by Monsters and Other Childish Things artist Robert Mansperger, Jr., with color postcards by Kate Ashwin,  K.C. Green, Violet Kirk and Ean Moody.

Gas up the van, put ice in the cooler, and don’t forget the trail mix. It’s time to hit the road!
