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.

One question that explorers may want to answer is whether technology is all bad.  Tales abound of rogue Artificial Intelligences (AIs) that thirst for mankind’s destruction in retaliation for past wrongs.  Is any tech safe to use or is Big Brother always watching, waiting for a chance to strike?

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

  • electronics-oriented Basic Skills that allow Survivors and NPCs to design and maintain gadgets, devices, and computers, including the development of software applications that can be useful resources or deadly opponents;
  • a System Reason (REA-s) attribute that defines how “smart” the hardware in electronics can be;
  • a Program Reason (REA-p) attribute that defines how interactive or sentient a software application can be;
  • a system of Structure Points (SPs) and Armor Points (APs) that simulate the durability of electronics;
  • a system of Material Attributes (MATs) that simulates the physical properties of high-tech materials used to make electronic hardware; and
  • Materiel Resistance (MAR) factors that define how much corrosion or radiation a gadget, device, or computer can resist in combat.

Recommended for ages 14+.

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.
