A.C.: AFTER COLLAPSE (sometimes referred to as A.C.) is a postapocalyptic role-playing game set at least 50 years after worldwide civilization has come to a slow, bitter end.

Modern society had reached the point where most people wanted for little. Their wishes could be made real with the push of a button. Many diseases had been conquered. However, humanity’s reliance on technology set the stage for its eventual descent into chaos.A.C. presents a detailed post-Collapse environment filled with opportunities for adventure and discovery. Characters, known as “Survivors,” cautiously comb through the dangerous ruins of once-great metropolises. Salvagers compete with profit-hungry scavengers to find valuable loot. Intelligent machines may match wits with Survivors or help them to reach their goals.

A.C.: AFTER COLLAPSE uses a d20-based architecture. Features include:

  • a classless character generation system;
  • a Character Point (CP) system that rewards players when they complete scenario and campaign goals, allowing them to improve attributes and acquire new skills;
  • detailed rules for applying the effects of combat, radiation, and poison;
  • a turn-based combat and action system; and
  • guidelines for referees to develop their own scenarios and campaigns.

Recommended for ages 14+.

Hi. This is a good work. I love it, but I have a question:

- Is it me, or I cannot print this pdf because it asks for a password?

Please help. Regards

Thanks for your question, Paulo.
We're glad to hear you're enjoying the game.

It's not you. The file was originally distributed as unprintable.

We've updated the settings to allow printing. You should be able to download the new file from your My Library, either in the "View All Products" or "Updated only" tab. The new copy should be printable.

Thanks, and have a great day!

A bit dense in my opinion, seems like a lot of potential if you can work your way to understanding

What is wrong with acronyms? This book seems reasonably priced. I hope to be able to pick it up when I get some extra cash.

A 3-page list of acronyms? I'm out.

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.
