Fragged Empire Kickstarter
Betrayed by your creators, you are a genetically engineered remnant emerging from the ruin of genocidal war…
All four of Rachel’s ears twitched with nervous energy as she & Maximus searched the Nephilim gene lab. They’d been hired to steal data, but the bloody dissection tables & the occasional vat filled with murky liquid hadn’t been part of the job description.
Out of morbid curiosity, Rachel turned her gun-mounted flashlight onto the nearest vat. It was massive, at least two meters tall & filled with an opaque green fluid. She approached & peered into the murky depths. “What could possibly be growing inside these?” she whispered.
Rachel stumbled back as she received a partial answer. A black claw, bigger than her head, had reached out of the liquid & slammed into the glass wall of the vat. Just as abruptly, it disappeared back into the depths of the tank.
“Don’t worry Rach,” Maximus grunted, barely glancing at the source of the disturbance. “Nothing can bust out of those vats. They’re made of two-inch-thick transparent synth steel, it would take…”
Max & Rachel’s hearts simultaneously skipped a beat as they both heard the crunching noise of something breaking underneath Max’s huge combat boots. Rachel swung her torch to the ground & saw scattered fragments of metal and glass.
“What’s that stuff?” she asked, glancing at her partner. Maximus hesitated before answering.
“Two-inch-thick transparent synth steel.”
Fragged Empire is a tabletop RPG setting and rules, set in a far future ‘post, post-apocalyptic’ setting. Your people have survived 100 years of brutal tribalism and savagery and are just now emerging back into space.
Set in the style of Ridley Scott’s 1979 film Alien, television series Firefly, Farscape and Blake’s 7 and computer-based role-playing games Mass Effect and Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic.
Not forgetting, of course, the Kickstarter campaign itself!
