You got your fantasy in my horror!
You got your horror in my fantasy!
Well, you both got your horror and fantasy in my post-apocalyptic!
Apocalypse the Risen is a little of this and a little of that. It’s listed as post-apocalyptic fantasy horror. It’s set on Earth after society has been utterly destroyed (so, ~28 years from now. … Kidding!). Demons have gotten a foothold and zombies are roaming the streets. Can you survive in such a horrific land?
The setting book is up now on Kickstarter.

From the campaign:

Apocalypse the Risen Campaign Setting is a post-apocalyptic fantasy horror RPG based on Earth, twenty-five years after the fall of society, in an event known as the Rise; when demons rose to power and the Risen dead first appeared. This game is being offered in both Dungeon and Dragons 5th Edition and Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Compatible system formats.

Apocalypse the Risen thrusts you into the role of a resolute survivor, forging through the ashes of humanity on an Earth besieged by demons and the dead—known as Risen. Twenty-five years after the collapse of society, humankind and their new allies now fight back, staggered and beaten but never broken. You are far more than a victim in some horror movie or a scavenger in a blasted wasteland, you are a survivor of the Light battling the forces of Darkness.

Players in this world take on the role of a hunter relied upon by your colony for resources and protection. You may be human or one of three other races new to Earth. You possess specialized skills and powerful special abilities which vary greatly among nine playable classes. Your colony is your home and responsibility, but soon you may discover the world smaller and filled with even more wonder than you could imagine.

The campaign is about 85% of the way to their goal with still 27 days left to go.
