About the adventure

This is a frozen wasteland after the end of the world, day after tomorrow meest the matrix. The world is crazy and savage, people live in the spires, what's left of the skyscrapers of the past that pierced the frozen surface of the flooded world. The deep, under the ice, still holds many secrets and your band of crazies just might be lucky enough to find them, and make it to some place warm. Or, you could die of exposure, get eating by polar shark lizard hybrids or stumble on the not so friendly Ark dwellers. We will play to find out.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Watch mad max, the matrix, day after tomorrow or any other apocalypse or post apocalypse movie. Think about your characters place in it.

What I provide

I'll have the game and a bunch of world and NPCs for you to wreck. Access to the book and playbooks. I'll set everything up in roll20 and create a character token for you.

Gameplay details

This is an Apocalypse world game, so it's story focused with a 2d6 resolving dice mechanic. The playbooks the game uses to make characters can be put together in 30 mins or less, mostly with little help from the MC, their version of DM. The game starts with introductions to each other's character and with where they are. Then into the actions.

How will character creation work

Make them beforehand, I'll help and no duplicates. Also don't worry about sex moves, we will not be going there ;)
