So, the world has been destroyed. Damnit, Carl, I told you to not shine that laser pointer up into the sky. Various alien races came and fought a war over control of Earth. Now, cities are gone, and only a few small, isolated groups of humans remain. That's also the story behind The After, a new post-apocalyptic RPG that runs on the Savage Worlds system. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
THE AFTER is a setting of savage frontier action (think The Revenant or Jeremiah Johnson) in a sci-fi post-apocalyptic world (think Annihilation or The Quiet Place). It uses the newly retooled Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. The Fast, Fun and Furious vibe of Savage Worlds fits the tone we were looking for in THE AFTER.
THE AFTER is set in the northwestern reaches of the broken North American continent. You play survivors of the shattered human race trying to rebuild their world after nearly a century of alien predation and war. The utterly destructive invasion of Earth, followed by a terrifying war between rival Alien species far more advanced than mankind, has left the Earth a broken version of its former self. Major cities and areas of industrial and military strength have been completely obliterated. Only in the worlds most sparsely populated areas have people survived: areas that were ignored or undervalued by the the rampaging alien forces.
The campaign's up and over its funding goal with 14 days left to go.
