So, Fantasy Flight Games! You know; the folks that make Dark Heresy, Only War, Chaos in the Old World, Arkham Horror, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, and a ton of other stuff. Yeah! Those folks. Well, they just showed up with a new roleplay at the table! They are calling it…
The End of The World.
See, when I first saw it they only showed the zombie book, and I thought “GREEEEEAAAT! Another darn zombie setting. It isn’t like multimedia isn’t already overrun by the boring brain dead jerks and lazy fill in the blank, overused plots…” then I saw THIS. A-AND ALEINS!? ROBOTS!? FUCKING CTHULHU DUDES!? WOW. Wow. wow… Wacky… But hey, I know; those other apocalypse scenarios also have been milked dry a long time ago… but at least they aren’t zombies!
Really, I like this. I am excited for this! Fantasy Flight has yet to fail me in gameplay and design, and I really doubt this’ll be the one. These topics are so vague I just don’t see them messing up! So, not much to worry about on that front.
So, vague setting scenarios for the end of the world, by a great game company?
I honestly can’t wait.
Wrath of the Gods,
Revolt of the Machines
and yes even
I just can’t wait to crack ‘em open, examine them, and maybe play out a few games with some friends.
Here is what could be a really rad game. Hope this gets ya excited!
