Imagine that everything you know about your world is a lie, that the people in your government aren’t working for you, or for themselves, or even for the rich businessmen you think have control.

Imagine that the world is getting worse, not because we polluted the planet beyond repair, or because climate change and overpopulation have strained the supply of food and clean water.

Imagine that the person you love and trust, that you share your secrets with, that you share your life with, the center of your hopes and dreams, imagine they might not actually be who they said they were.

Imagine that there is one central force behind it all, behind the evil and the poison and the lies. Imagine that no one but you and a few other unfortunate souls are even aware that anything is wrong.

And imagine that, there in the shadows, as you search for answers, something wicked is looking back at you, with hunger in its’ eyes. And all it needs is to find a nice warm spot deep inside your flesh...

The Tribe: Humanity’s Last Hope is a roleplaying game of conspiracy, body horror, and urban revolution, run with the Apocalypse World system. Play the men and women who have dropped out of everyday life and American culture, joining an illegal uprising against the body-stealing horrors who are secretly taking over, one victim at a time. If you’ve lost your country, your rights, your voice, and your love, what else have you got to lose, Troop?

In the core book, you'll get 15 basic playbooks, over 25 advanced playbooks, 20 different starting scenarios, 20 different types of Tribal Families, rules for 13 different powerful spirits to interact with, and over 30 different types of enemies, including both supernatural and alien menaces. Not to mention over 200 various moves. All of this content is compatible with other Apocalypse Engine games with a little work.


(WARNING: Contains mature themes, including violence, swearing, sexuality, and challenges to the status quo. I let my kid play it, but I'm wierd that way.)

"Play the men and women who have dropped out of everyday life and American culture to fight an illegal uprising against the body-stealing horrors who are secretly taking over, one victim at a time."

Wait, so you fight FOR the body-stealing horrors? Pretty cool, actually.

Ah, I can see the confusion. I'll edit the wording there to make it clearer. Although, yes, you COULD fight FOR the bad guys.

I have a question. Some of the advanced playbooks mention a stat called Heart, which is nowhere in the book. Is this a typo or am I missing something obvious?

Whoops. It's a typo. I'll get them corrected and reupload the corrected copy this morning. Thanks for the catch!

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.
