Ruins Of Atlanta

Suggested Price $4.95

Ruins of Atlanta adds setting information to the Kalos Universe, focusing in detail on the people who have chosen to live in the aftermath of the Fall of Paragon, when that hero single-handedly destroyed the city of Atlanta.

The ruins of Atlanta offer an unusual opportunity to combine superhero roleplay with the post-apocalypse genre. Many of the tropes of the post-apocalypse genre are present here: lawless gangs of scavengers, young idealists trying to build a better world, jaded cynics who will do anything to survive, power-hungry warlords, religious fanatics, high-tech enclaves, and even the occasional mutant.

Welcome to the ruins.

A portion of the proceeds from Ruins Of Atlanta goes to support the Southern Poverty Law Center. (As of 2020-09-27, 100% of Kalos Comics' proceeds from Ruins Of Atlanta have been donated to support the Southern Poverty Law Center.)

Bulletproof Blues is a Kalos Mechanism game.

SPLC is a politically-biased, and very politically-motivated organization. If my money is to go there, I will keep it.

Oh, no, not again!

Some time has passed, but it turns out the SPLC has some anti-Dungeons & Dragons skeletons in its closet. Newer RPG fans don't seem to realize the history of the SPLC.

They made a negative remark in Newsweek about Dungeons & Dragons in 1999, apparently using D&D as a metaphor for what was bad about the White supremacist groups they were talking about.

From NEWSWEEK, March 8, 1999, "Evil to the End":

"Watchdog groups say he's both puerile and dangerous. 'He does command some fairly fanatical loyalty,' says Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
'In some ways, it's like Dungeons and Dragons. But he has the potential to be a real leader...' "

This snide attack against the hobby was doubled-down on some time later in their official publication:
The SPLC published an article quoting a Swedish professor, Mattias Gardell, linking D&D to paganism to White supremacists. ...See more

I am not going to lose sleep over an offhand comment in an 18 year old interview.

Then you might want to pay attention to what they published in a *16*-year-old article. Don't fund anti-RPG groups!

They're not an anti-RPG group. :)

That is not for you to declare just by fiat. If Mattias Gardell links D&D-playing to paganism and White supremacists, and the SPLC publishes it, what is a reasonable person to conclude? Let's put this in front of as many gamer eyes as possible.

And what kind of a social justice crusader would you be, if you suddenly say demonizing a group like D&D-players is OKAY?

Feel free to tilt at whatever windmill thrills you. They're not an anti-RPG group, and I am not going to follow you down the rabbit hole. If you don't want to buy the supplement, then don't.

"If you don't want to buy the supplement, then don't."

I certainly will take your advice and give you no money. If you're interested in raising money for what you think is a worthy group, you might consider actually being polite and addressing potential customers' concerns instead of rudely blowing them off. You aren't making yourself or the SPLC look very good.

Original electronic
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.
