Description

The summer of 2011 was blisteringly hot and humid,
both in Britain and in the rest of the world.
Perhaps nothing too unusual.
Then it started to rain.
Still nothing unusual.
It started to rain everywhere in the world, even in deserts.
And it didn’t stop.
Ever.

About this Book

The Drowned Lands is a sandbox for the Wordplay roleplaying game.
It details a number of communities in part of what was once the south coast of England, and the wilderness that lies between them.

Each community has its own strengths, weaknesses and resources it needs. There are opportunities and adventure hooks in every place, both for people from that community and visitors from elsewhere.

A Navigator will be able to use Drowned Lands for a single adventure or short series of adventures within the setting with a minimum of preparation.

Further, the player characters will have a wide variety of options open to them and places they can visit- with significant things they can do at each one.

In some cases, the player characters will find opportunities to do big and potentially setting-changing things.

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 dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
