PunkApocalyptic RPG Quickstart

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.50


Welcome to PunkApocalyptic: The Roleplaying Game, the second tabletop RPG from Schwalb Entertainment. This Quickstart book is a big juicy slab of f****** awesome that gives you a nice taste of what the game is all about before we haul this beast to Kickstarter. This booklet includes everything you need to make a starting character, most of the game rules, some gear, and a mission (an "adventure") you can use to get started. Best of all, it's free! Have a look. Kick the tires. Kill some cannibal rednecks.<o:p></o:p>

Also I have noticed that if you are using the encumbrance rules, each bullet counts as an item. Surely that’s a bit crazy? Personally I wouldn’t even count them as weight, or maybe 1 item per 100 bullets, for those lucky bas#@£)$ walking around with such an arsenal.

And I have also noticed that the Mattock, Pick and Sledge are Heavy Weapons, meaning they must be used with 2 hands. And yet they lose their Cumbersome property when used with both hands.

This looks a lot of fun. Any chance of a character sheet?

A character sheet is included at the end of the book. Remember it is PWYW, so the character sheet is also free if you like so.

Sorry but I don’t have that in my download. The last page (52) just has the creatures from the scenario.

So after skimming the quickstart rules it sounds like this is basically SotDL with some alterations to the system and set in a different post apocalyptic setting than Godless is. Does that sound about right?

The big difference I took away from this is the change in attributes from four to eight. Most everything else is intact but with different names. The Fortune system has been changed to Luck and operates differently. I kind of like this version better.

The quickstart rules doesn't include any ancestries other than humans from what I've read. It does include paths as "Backgrounds".

It looks interesting and should be easy enough for SotDL players to pick up and run with.

Edit: Almost forgot, I didn't see anything pertaining to magic.

Nope! It's free. Enter 0. The Pay What You Want is a tip jar. That's all!

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.
