D6xD6 RPG Blackout World Setting

Watermarked PDF

Adventure in a world of 1930s noirpunk—a sepia-toned, neon-lit, art-deco cityscape ravaged by the Industrial Revolution and the soul-crushing horrors of the Great War—not to mention a subtle invasion by a malignant alien intelligence! 

The Blackout setting exists on an alternate Earth, where Europe was virtually destroyed in the Great War of 1914 to 1918, and the United States was reduced to competing city-states separated by vast tracts of wasteland. The common folk have largely lost faith in technological advances, not the least because an alien entity now occupying the planet's ionosphere occasionally brings electrical devices to malevolent life!

Players take role of government Snuff Squad agents sent to hunt down these rogue machines, even using their own powers against them. 

For use with the D6xD6 RPG created by Origins award winning designer Lester Smith, which features:

  • Five-minute character creation.
  • Quick-and-easy tactical combat rules. 
  • Endless setting possibilities.

Cool, new settings! Will these be later published in some kind of all-in-one supplement book?

Thanks for the question, Łukasz K. This is just the first of many new settings in the works for the coming year, and we do plan to gather these six-page treatments into print anthologies. We also have plans for longer, standalone settings in the works. Popcorn Press is now our full-time business, and D6xD6 is its flagship project, soon to lead a flotilla of supplements. Cheers!

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.
