Age of Darkness - Alternate setting for Red Sky, in a world without power or mercy


Age of Darkness is a micro-expansion for the game Red Sky, focusing on one of the alternate settings featured in the source material.

In the near future, a solar explosion on an immeasurable scale reached Earth, leading to the destruction of any and all electrical and electronic devices globally, causing a series of disasters and leading to complete social collapse, an event that became known to posterity as "The Blackout".

About a century later society regressed to a pre-industrial state that many christened the "second middle ages", with lands dominated by lords with absolute authority, slaves and numerous factions in dispute through the settlements of survivors that little by little established its own system of government, laws, and commerce.

It is highly recommended that the Storyteller and Players adapt the city or region they live in to the reality of this apocalyptic setting, creating groups and factions consistent with their reality. Try to imagine what kinds of domains and organizations would form in your country a century after the Blackout.

By purchasing this product you will get two pamphlets that provide an overview of the world and feature a set of characteristic archetypes to help you set your players and adventures in this post-energy world.

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.
