Shattered Moon

By on 25 March 2013

The moon shattered and so did your life.

Sophisticated roleplay system adds a new setting to the FateStorm range: Shattered Moon.

On the earth of Shattered Moon, the newest setting in the FateStorm range, you are not human, but nuoSidhe and struggling to survive. The remnants of the human race are being hunted and enslaved by the servants of the dark goddess Lilith. With your newfound abilities and magic you have the tools to survive in the new world. The question is: do you want humans to share it with you?

Using the innovative FateStorm Virtual Reality System, Shattered Moon introduces the players into a post apocalypse unlike anything they’ve seen before. It is a world filled with unleashed magic and ancient horrors; no more so than the goddess Lilith and the Nephilim; leading Lilith’s children, the lilim, in a worldwide fight to subjugate and feed on the last remnants of humankind.

Shattered Moon, a core rule book, provides everything the aspiring game master needs to run a FateStorm game, as well as information on setting, creatures, character development and suggested story arcs. Shattered Moon also features original artwork and design and an avatar record sheet specific to Shattered Moon. With avatar templates, such as the Dwarf tinker, Troll blade, Goblin cloaker and the Elf skint, play can begin in minutes rather than hours – or the players can scratch build their avatars, making the most use of the innovative FateStorm blend of game and setting.

In Shattered Moon, the FateStorm system text has been streamlined and clarified; there are new abilities and assea weaves as well as rules for modern weaponry and automatic fire. For quick reference, Shattered Moon features a glossary and extensive index.

Shattered Moon is available to download in pdf format now and will be available as a hardcopy book shortly. Further Shattered Moon, featuring the FateStorm system that débuted with the release of Ascendency, are scheduled to be published throughout the year.

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
