Well, it would seem as though the dead have risen from their graves and are looking to take over the Earth. The living are fighting back as best they can, but it’s a rough world out there. The Catholic Church is seen as a major bulwark against the undead. But a heretical faction is rising up. What will you do? That’s the story behind Sine Requie: Snake Eyes, a horror RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
On June 6th, 1944, the Dead began their hunt against mankind.
It is the year 1954, the world is a pile of rubble, its few survivors try to resist the hunger of the Dead.
In this anachronistic vision of Italy, the Catholic Church founded the Sanctum Imperium, ruled by Papa Leone XIV; his inquisitors retain control over the country and are tasked with full eradication of all that threatens Order.
Will you annihilate the new heretic cult: the Snake Eyes?
Based on an award-winning Italian pen and paper R.P.G., Sine Requie: Snake Eyes is a Horror-Thriller roleplaying game with survival elements.
It revolves around the investigations of Inquisitor Rossano Mazzoni and its hunt against a secretive heretic cult in a post-apocalyptic 1954 Tuscany, in which the Dead rose to feed on the living.
The campaign’s a bit more than 1/5 of the way to its goal with still 23 days left to go.
