Earth 2045

We Survived

In 2028, we foresaw our fate in the plumes of a distant comet entering our solar system. Humanity united to save itself from extinction as a planet killer comet veered to strike the Earth. Our efforts to stop Armageddon partially succeeded and the sky bled red for a decade as the comet’s debris shrouded our planet.

The fleeting unity that saved us vanished and we reverted to our corrupted nature. The darkened skies birthed a mini-ice age heralding worldwide chaos and suffering unlike any in history. The horrors of the human condition were exponentially magnified as famine, drought, epidemics, biting poverty, radicalization, and war spread across the globe. We stood at the edge of our extinction as surely as when the comet threatened our world, yet we were resilient, and where darkness reigned, light followed.

Today, in 2045, the sky is healed; its natural cerulean hue restored. Memories of the unity that saved us from extinction a generation ago inspired the birth of a new world order as a new species of humanity rises from the precipice of oblivion.

Welcome to Extinction Event

Extinction Event is a science fiction conspiracy campaign guide compatible with the HERO System 6th Edition and Champions Complete rules that immerses you in a near-future alternate Earth rising from the brink of extinction!

Earth’s future is in your hands as one of the Gifted, individuals who’ve developed strange and powerful psychic powers in the wake of catastrophe. As one of the Gifted you take a role as: 

  • PALADIN Soldiers —Gifted military special operations forces tasked with capturing other Gifted around the world.
  • Acolytes of the Bavarian Illuminati—a secret society comprised of those who know the truth behind the origins of the Gifted and seek to exploit them in order to advance their own agendas.
  • Outcasts from society—those on the fringe hunted by those who seek to either exploit or eliminate them while trying to survive in a world that hates and fears them.

Inside this volume you will find a complete campaign guide for the world of Extinction Event. Its features include:

  • Compatibility with Hero System 6th Edition and Champions Complete
  • A unique setting filled with conspiracies and mysteries, as well as the psychic powers needed to resolve them
  • A collection of character templates, powers, equipment, and adversaries

Hello everyone,

We wanted to give everyone an update on the availability for the Extinction Event POD. We received proofs today in the mail, but there was a problem with the Hardcover Standard Color version. We don't know whether the issue was due to our uploaded files or a printer issue, but out of caution, we uploaded the files again today, and will be ordering another proof.

Receiving the new proof can take up to a couple of weeks, so we will hold off putting any of the PODs on sale until we are sure that they are ready for prime time!

Thanks for your patience.

Can someone provide the page count? Also, Is there a plan to have a POD ready version so we can order a printed book?

Hi David,

The book is 166 pages (168 with front and back covers). The book will be available in POD. We are waiting for the proofs to make sure that the quality is good and then we will make it available for POD barring any issues.

We hope to have the proofs in our hands next week.

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.
