Well, the world’s come to an end again. Damnit, Todd! I told you that starting a nuclear war was a bad idea! Now we’ve gotta go out from the shelters and rebuild society. But we’re not the only ones headed into that wasteland. Other groups are making their way to the surface as well. We’ll have to assert our family’s views and make sure that the new world follows our ideals. That’s what you’ll be doing in Legacy: Life Among the Ruins, which has a new edition available in digital form now from Modiphius.
From the announcement:
Your ancestors survived thanks to luck, preparation or pure grit. Now it’s time to leave their shelters and start rebuilding the world. But the wasteland has other inhabitants: families with different philosophies and abilities, secretive factions with their own agendas, and bizarre monsters stalking the ruins. As generations pass and your family evolves to suit this new world, what stories will you tell?
In this roleplaying game you’ll build your own unique post-apocalytic landscape, home to scattered families of survivors. Take control of a family, play the brave heroes that define them, and guide them through the grand sweep of history.
From grand strategy to desperate struggle. Shift freely between commanding the movements of spies and armies and fighting monsters in a ruined wasteland, using the fast and dramatic rules of the Powered by the Apocalypse engine.
A game of histories. Write the saga of your family over generations and draw on your ancestor’s powers, even as you face the unexpected consequences of their actions.
Endless variety. 11 family types and 13 character types create hundreds of possibilities, each with its own meaning for the story you’re telling.
Hit the ground running. Start playing today with the included quickstart, complete with five pairs of families and characters, story prompts and a sunless world filled with hungry spectres.
