Webworld Post-Apocalyptic RPG Up On Kickstarter

This game is not for the arachnophobic. In Webworld, giant spiders have taken over the world, covering everything in their massive webs. Humanity has collapsed and now it's just those brave and canny enough to survive. This new post-apocalyptic RPG is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Welcome to Webworld. A combat-free rules-light TTRPG about survivng in a dangerous post-apocalyptic world where giant spiders stalk the Earth. 

Webworld is a self-contained tool for a Game Master, or World Weaver as we like to call them, to create a harsh post-apocalyptic world of web and danger.

The world as we know it is dead. Covered in a thick layer of web by giant arachnids. 

No-one is quite sure how or why they came to be. Some claim they were a government experiment gone wrong. Others claim they emerged from a rift in the Mariana Trench. 

But these are all just theories that, in the long run, don't matter. Because they’re here. They scuttle across the surface of our planet, legs thicker than sewer pipes and bodies larger than buildings.

People tried to resist at first. The army, just like in so many sci-fi films, were called in. Their bullets and shells seemed to glance off the thick chitin like pellets off of a suit of armour.

They descended on humanity, feeding on us like flies. Covering every field, every street, every skyscraper in their thick sticky web. Before long, planet Earth was almost completely white. 

The remaining dregs of humanity hid, wearing white clothing and wrapping themselves in webs to blend in, sneaking from building to building, trying to survive the hell-scape that is planet Earth.

And then there's the Hosts, living zombies with brains full of venom and stomachs full of eggs. There's fates worse than ending up as lunch in this spider-eat-human world.

The campaign's around 1/3 of the way to its goal with 19 days left to go.
