Uprising: The Dystopian Universe RPG

Uprising: The Dystopian Universe RPG


Corruption. Betrayal. Intrigue. Just another day in Paris Nouveau.

In a cyberpunk, dystopian future, the citizens of Paris Nouveau are no more than indentured servants. Virtual reality has come at a cost they can never pay, a tradeoff of freedom for technology. But there are freedom fighters who reject the system, unplugging from the illusion and working to make things right once again. They are La Résistance. Rise up and defy the corporations in Uprising: the Dystopian Universe RPG, set in the same universe as The Resistance, Coup, and One Night Revolution from Indie Boards & Cards.

Uprising is a stand-alone game that uses a customized version of the Fate System. Within these pages, you’ll find:

  • Playsheets for nine character archetypes with tie-ins to the cards found in other Dystopian Universe games
  • New aspect rules to help reflect the intrigue of the Dystopian Universe, where no one is exactly what they seem
  • A new system for secrets—essential to surviving on the mean streets of Paris Nouveau
  • New prep scenes and equipment rules designed to help make downtime active.
  • A streamlined modular system for creating missions, along with sample missions to get you started

The Dystopian Universe RPG: Vive La Résistance!

NOTE: If you'd like to have a printed Deck of Secrets for use with the game, check out the Deck of Secrets as well!

I think I've spotted an error on this PDF. At page 82, The Naturel means options are:

Fight +3, Manipulate +1, Maneuver +2, Observe +2
Fight +2, Manipulate +1, Maneuver +3, Observe +2
Fight +2, Manipulate +1, Maneuver +2, Observe +3

But at page 293 they are listed as


Which one is the correct?

I think you've lucked out and have found the secret fourth set. Nothing should break if you go with either version, so long as each set tallies to 8 total.

The PDF available here still has the front and back cover twice in succession and is then missing the last two index pages.

Thanks for letting me know. So, the challenge here was that a) what we uploaded didn't have that problem, and b) DriveThru doesn't make it easy for a publisher to download their own files. After your note here I sent myself a comp copy (don't know why I didn't think of that before), and I see the problem now. Thing is, I don't know if the DriveThru server is gonna screw the file up again on re-upload, but I will re-upload the correct-on-my-end copy shortly. Check for it in about 15 minutes.

I just wanted to point out that the PDF has the front and back book cover two times in a row, was that intentional for some reason I'm probably missing?

I just looked at the PDF product we uploaded here and it does not fit what you're describing at all.

I double checked it and tried a couple other PDF viewers, I also attempted to re-download it. Maybe it's something on DriveThruRPG's end? I took a screenshot if you have an email you'd like me to send it to.

on my Mac and Iphone is the artwork missing. Any idea how to resolve this. I have tried to re-download the pdf, but that yielded the same result.

Don't know what to tell y'all — on the devices I'm able to check this on, the images display fine. Could be software specific, or an older hardware issue?

I'm having the same problem, it doesn't render art in Preview (the standard pdf viewer on Mac and iOS).

that would be more like ''Nouveau Paris" that would be funny if you added Le Grand Paris plan for the gauls capital city.
Ill definetly check this setting as soon as i can just to see how Paris Nouveau looks like in this setting just because i live in its suburb outskirt.

Vive la Résistance !

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.
