This is the second edition of Apocalyptia, an open-source tabletop roleplaying game about The End. The setting is our world in the not-too-distant future. There are 12 distinct apocalyptic Scenarios presented here, each with unique challenges and opportunities. Character development is not really about leveling up stats, but rather the characters themselves change as they grow, getting better at some things while getting rusty in others. They struggle for survival and sanity as friends and loved ones die all around them. Individual prowess is never as important as the support of your Team, your Faction, and your Settlement. Ultimately, the game is about overcoming those things that have divided humanity for so long, and coming together to build a better world out of the rubble of the old.

The only die you need to play Apocalyptia is a d6. The game is designed to be a military-style simulation with the intention of balancing system crunchiness with fast-paced play. The book is written with a lot of system abbreviations to pack as much game content into this small package as possible. For best results, the Game Narrator should be experienced with common roleplaying game concepts and become comfortable with the rules since the majority of the work of running the game is placed on the Narrator. Character creation usually takes 20 minutes or less, which is good since the mortality rate is rather high in the Wasteland.

Game Features:

  • Easy random Area and Encounter generation procedures
  • Detailed Equipment lists, mods, and vehicles for those who love to Scavenge for Loot
  • Over 100 unique non-player characters and creatures in 12 different Apocalyptic Scenarios
  • Realistic tactical combat and survival based on real-world techniques
  • Faction Bases and inter-Faction relations, including Faction Warfare
  • Rules for building Team Bases and entire Settlement

In this second edition of the game, the rules have been cleaned up, balanced, and expanded to allow as many options as players and game narrators can imagine. Additional artwork, game mechanics, and setting content gives greater detail and increased possibilities for your Apocalyptic adventures.

This PDF is formatted to make printing easy. Each page is 8.5" x 5.5" so that two pages can be printed on each side of a standard sheet of printer paper, allowing the easy printing of Apocalyptia manuals with common printer booklet settings.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
