Hardcover, B&W Book (8.5" x 11")

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.

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.

Savvy explorers know that finding loot is only half the challenge.  The other half is keeping it.  Whether it’s to protect an enclave, hold on to what you’ve found or built, or taking things from someone else, the intimidation factor of small arms makes them some of the most desired weapons for the job.

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

  • a craft-oriented Basic Skill system that allows survivors and NPCs to make weapons and accessories to their own specifications;
  • a system of modifiers that adjust Accuracy, Damage, and Penetration to increase the lethality of precision-made firearms;
  • a system of Material Attributes (MATs) that simulates the physical properties of firearms, ammunition, and accessories;
  • Materiel Resistance (MAR) factors that define how much corrosion and radiation guns, ammo, and accessories can resist under combat conditions;
  • differentiation between High Velocity (HV) and Low Velocity (LV) attack types to simulate the potential effectiveness of metal cartridge ammunition; and
  • the use of Hard Points (HDPs) and Vigor Points (VGPs) to simulate the toughness of Survivors and NPCs and their ability to resist lethal and nonlethal damage.

Recommended for ages 14+.

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.
