It’s 1940! The Continent has fallen, Hitler’s army seems unstoppable, and London has fallen into the crosshairs of the evil Luftwaffe. Their bombers come in the night and leave our great city blasted and burning in their wake...

But it’ll take more than that! While the boys are fighting them on the beaches, us girls have a job to do! Air wardens, fire guards, rescue workers; if fair Britannia’s going to make it through this, we’ll all need to do our part!


BLACKOUT is a Powered by the Apocalypse roleplaying game about female Civil Defence volunteers during the London Blitz. As air wardens, rescue workers, fire guards, first aid responders, and welfare services, you venture forth from the bomb shelters to confront the horrors being unleashed from above, fighting fires, saving lives, and trying to piece back together your fair city even as the enemy tries to blow it to pieces!

Designed for intense one-shot play in any time frame, BLACKOUT is easy to run and quick to set up. Mix and match Identites and Roles to create a unique character, collectively design your London community, and defend it as the bombs fall. Take Charge of civilians and other responders, Make Time for those in need, Size Up bomb sites, and Press On into danger!

This 80 page book contains the rules of play, background information on both the city and the war, a GM section containing further background, and a number of alternate play settings and time periods, with optional rules and guidelines. The game has five roles and five identities that can be combined together to create characters, and is fully illustrated with stylized, colourized period photography.

You need the game's printable Playbooks (they're free!) to play!

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.
