History is not as you know it to be. What you have been told has been censored by those trying to keep humanity safe. While this seems a convenient way to keep you in the dark, the truth is right within your reach; you just don’t know it. What we call folklore, mythology, and legends have a modicum of truth into Earth’s dangerous past and shadowy present. Those in the know, however, make sure you never find out. The Inquisition’s prime directive is to keep humanity safe, but even they are ignorant to the absolute truth:

Humanity will never win.

You are one of The Fallen. You are supernatural; empowered with the ability to eliminate the immortal threats. Driven by a desire to prevent chaos from consuming the universe, you fight for a common cause. While you strive to keep mankind safe, it is Earth’s history you must protect from all those who threaten it. The occult; chthonic demons; spiritual chaos; cosmic conspirators; treacherous beings wielding unfettered power; these are your enemies.

The Fallen is a storytelling game of supernatural horror, Powered by the Apocalypse. You take on the role of a member of The Fallen, humanity’s only real hope against the greatest powers of the universe.

There is one caveat… humankind cannot know you exist or you will be targeted and hunted down by the Inquisition.

Inside this book you will find:

  • Six unique character types, each with special abilities to aid in their quest to protect humanity.
  • Fully defined mechanics to create your story and keep your games moving forward with every roll of the dice.
  • Esoteric abilities, a guide to necessary weapons, and the ability to tap into the ancient knowledge of the occult.
  • Guidance for the Chronicler to build a game environment.
  • A game play framework to get things going right away.

The Fallen is powered by the same engine as Apocalypse World, Urban Shadows, and Dungeon World. It is based in the multi-era alternate history known as Shadowed Earth, making mythology and folklore real and twisting it with a bit of fantasy horror.

Players… grab a playbook and get started!

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.
