About the adventure

Between the time when the Lights destroyed the Before-World and the finding of the Last Bomb, there was an era beyond all imagination. The era where Humans, Dwarves, and Elves fought Orcs, Dragons, and Tyrants on board armored vehicles. The radioactive lands of this tumultuous era were called the Post-Lands by those who, like worms, crawled on the contaminated sand in search of water, medicine, bullets, and glory. Welcome to the Post-Apocalypse! The Bombs may have destroyed civilization long ago, but the embers of the world still linger. Outposts offer shelter to the tired survivors, but they are few and far between, scattered across the Post-Lands. They require the help of Strangers like you to gather resources and ensure trade. It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it. The awakening of Magic after the Lights didn't make things any easier: if anything, now there's more weird stuff out to kill you! This game system is called The Last Bomb. It's pretty new (published in 2019), and it is quite different from more classic games like D&D. It is way simpler too: much fewer rules, easy to learn and to master. But it is quite lethal and unforgiving, as a bullet to the head will certainly kill you. If you think you have what it takes to survive and thrive in this hellhole, then put your pedal to the metal and join this amazing campaign!

Additional Details

How to prepare

You need at the very least a Discord Account, as that is what we'll be using to talk. Also hardware that can let you talk to us, so a smartphone or a PC with a mic. I'd also strongly advise having Wi-Fi connection or an unlimited data plan, as these games can potentially consume quite the bandwith. With this, you're set to play, everything else helps but it's not strictly required Ideally you'd want: >A Discord Account >A Roll20 Account >A PC (or Mac, or Laptop) that can run both >Headphones >A Webcam (absolutely not required to use it if you don't feel like showing your face) >A Microphone (many headphones and webcams come with one) >Stable Internet Connection with unlimited data (WiFi or some nice mobile plan)

What I provide

I'll bring some nice art to better immerse you in the setting and the roleplay. I have a Roll20 Plus account, so we can have fun with Dynamic Lighting (realistic shadows and blindspots) on the maps. Speaking of which, I'll also be making the battlemaps we need using Inkarnate.

Gameplay details

This game is about exploration and resource management. Sure, you have guns, but bullets are a luxury not to be wasted on the first mutant beast you find. Every fight can be lethal, but it doesn't mean they're unwinnable. Strangers usually explore the Desolate 81 and the Radioactive City. Hunting monsters, gathering resources, making people safe. Of course, this campaign is a (quite literal) sandbox, so the group will have the freedom to explore and wander as they please.

How will character creation work

We will be creating characters during session 0. In this system, this process is quick and easy, so we might even get to start playing in the same session! For those that don't feel like creating a character from scratch, I have some pre-generated sheets I can translate.
