Maelstrom Domesday

By on 13 December 2013

Maelstrom Domesday is finally here! A very successful Kickstarter campaign in the summer allowed us to create lots of stretch goals, but you can now get the core book pdf at DriveThruRPG.

Based on the classic 1984 Maelstrom RPG, this new edition has been revised and rewritten and moved in time to England in the year 1086. The new Norman overclass rules the land but their grip is uneasy. Rebellion and the supernatural are rife. And into this Maelstrom you are thrust by your new patron to investigate strange goings on.

A lifepath character creation system, Freeform magic, a guide to life in 1086 and a richly described setting with hundreds of plot hooks makes this a complete game in one book, although useful supplements will be released over the coming days.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
