since the beginning of time man has feared hell...

never did we dream that hell would come to us...

DUSK is a rules-light, post-apocalyptic roleplaying game and setting in which the characters are the survivors of some cataclysmic event. It has been so long since the end of the world that nobody can even remember how or why it happened.

Some say it was a massive thermonuclear world war, while others believe it was some form of epidemic which spread uncontrollably - in all likelihood, it was probably a combination of lots of different factors that led to the eventual downfall of civilization as we know it, not that any of that matters now.

All the inhabitants of DUSK know is that the wastelands are a harsh, unforgiving place, where if you aren’t careful, the environment or another survivor will almost certainly mean the end for you.

This book contains everything you need to play, including all the rules for character creation, game mastering as well as a full campaign setting and bestiary.

Hello! I don't know if I'm being silly, but I simply am not sure what the bracketed number listed after a weapon's damage signifies. I assume it means minimum damage, but what does that mean in practise? There answer is probably obvious, but I don't seem to grasp it.

It would be cool if you'd find the time to reply. The system seems really nice so far!

I read your book, really good ;)

But I don't have a truck full of d8 and the game seems to be easily able to run with d6.
The only rule that will be a little bit harder for the players, is the catastrophic failures (more 1 with d6 than with d8).
For the desperate attempts, you can succeed more easily but also get a 1, and such a catastrophic failure, more easily too, so the stakes are higher.

For the tests, the players need to get 4-5-6 to succeed instead of -5-6-7-8, which is the same.

Did I miss something about the rule that would require to play with d8?

Hi there. Thanks for the message. Your rules tweaks seem like a great way to play with d6s. I think you should keep an eye out for EVENTIDE, the spiritual successor to DUSK which comes out next year. It uses d6s :) enjoy the game. Follow our Facebook page for updates :)

No linked chapters? That's a bit of a pain when your pdf is more than 10 pages long..
And I can't add my own bookmarks because it's secured.
That's just not nice.

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.
