About the book
POST-APOCALYPTIC ACTION AND ADVENTURE WITHOUT BREAKING YOUR BUDGET!
During the days of Old Earth, man conquered the land. Then the terrible cataclysms came, wiping out civilization as we know it. The land is now filled with all sorts of hazards as it attempts to avenge itself upon man--rogue machines, plagues, beasts, and even man himself. Survivors explore and eke out a meager existence among the wastes and blasted lands. EarthAD 2 includes cybernetic beings, cyborgs, mutants, plague carriers, sentient animals, savage beasts, exotic abilities, makeshift transports, ready-to-play scenarios, reference sheets, and numerous character templates
EarthAD 2 is a roleplaying game designed to be both easy to learn and fast-paced. The versatile genreDiversion i 2d6 rules make it perfect for one-shot games, extended play, or as a framework for your own ideas. Plus you can combine it with our Active Exploits Diceless System for diceless post-apocalyptic adventure. genreDiversion i games can also be combined to expand gaming options--mix and match custom rules and features from one game with another.
In short, EarthAD 2 is fast, ready-to-use, and adaptable. You don't have to learn a complicated system, refer to scores of tables, or spend all day creating characters. The basic rules require very little study, and the advanced rules are not much more difficult to pick up. You can either create custom characters for the game or dive right in with any of the included templates. The game is designed to be light; it has a small footprint and extremely low price tag - it's not overloaded with tons of rules or an excess of information you just won't need. It's meant to get you running quickly so you can have a good time.
The setting is very open, taking place on a devastated Earth that is shattered into regions of desolate Wastes, deadly Roads, untamed Wilds, unexplored Undervalleys, hidden Vaults and Enclaves, inactive Metal Cities, competing Swaying Cities, and more. Man has been fractured into masters, slaves, nomads, cyborgs, and worse. The included scenarios immerse you into the setting, so even if you don't want to the run them, you've still got a lot of info to work with to flavor your setting or inspire ideas. And if you don't want to use the setting, the rules are flexible enough to handle your own ideas or that of your favorite movie, television program, comic, or novel.
