America 2155: Corporate sovereignty reigns supreme. The air is fetid and the lands are dying. Humanity is in danger of being subjected entirely to the collective will of the Mothers. Yet a few brave souls have chosen to stand against the onslaught, to crush the corporate power or die trying.
Dystopia is a game of violence and bloodshed. It is a game of revolution and resistance. This is not your father's RPG. Resist Mother!

Featuring the art of Avatar Z Brown 52 pages.

"If you've ever watched the news and wondered just what those anti-globalization protesters at the WTO are afraid of, then perhaps you'll learn a thing or two by reading DYSTOPIA, the deliciously antiestablishment RPG..."

"DYSTOPIA is as provocative as an AGAN flyer and as subtle as a bunch of bottle-throwing rioters. In short, DYSTOPIA is as politically incorrect as it gets, and that's a good thing."

"Nearly a third of DYSTOPIA's pages are taken up with an overview of a world dominated by capitalism-turned-oligarchy. The game's title is appropriate, as the future (circa 2155) is a nightmare of human rights violations, unequal distribution of wealth, and outright tyranny by the corporate bodies that dominate all aspects of life. By the time a reader reaches the plain, but functional, char-gen rules, they'll be ready to take the streets themselves."

"...anyone who's read Edward Abbey's THE MONKEY WRENCH GANG will have no trouble getting started..."

"DYSTOPIA's challenging premise is welcome break from generic dark futures where everyone's angry, but no one ever disturbs the status quo. DYSTOPIA's coarse language evokes the anger of the setting and characters quite well. The game's straightforward, skill-based mechanics are perfectly fine for what DYSTOPIA wants to do and the combat system is fairly brutal. There's a lot to like here, even if it isn't politically correct."

"The continuing popularity of dungeon-crawling aside, many gamers claim they want something different from the RPG mainstream. If this is true, then these gamers will not be disappointed with DYSTOPIA. Resist Mother!"

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.
