Rapture: The End of Days

The End of days...

...is just the beginning.

After centuries of war and strife, seven great nations arose to enter an uneasy peace. Humanity was once again rebuilding, with science blossoming and new discoveries heralding a true renaissance.  

Then gates of Heaven and Hell opened… 

 

and God’s plan for Man was made manifest. 

Those that walked the Earth with a righteous spirit and clean souls were taken into the loving arms of the Lord. Those who skulked with the devil, ignoring God’s divine laws, were cast aside to face the horrors awaiting all sinners.  As promised, the Earth burned. The clouds evaporated. The rule of man, of reason and science, came to an end. 

But that was on Earth. And not all of Mankind was on Earth. 

In man’s arrogance, he had built ladders to the very heavens themselves, scattering the spark of humanity among the stars.  These far flung few who remain, forgotten by God, or perhaps given a second chance, now face a future where good and evil have come into sharp relief; where science has proven to be a false idol, yet one that is vital for survival. With communications between colonies severed, no one knows for sure what has befallen humanity. The isolated pockets of human colonists are returning to the old ways – political squabbling, superstition and factional infighting are on the rise. As a tide of distrust rises among the survivors, unexplainable horrors are emerging. 

Things are coming… 

The legions of Satan are real... 

And they are coming for you...


What is Rapture?

Rapture, The End Of Days, is first and foremost a role-playing game of temptation, politics, horror and sacrifice.  

Rapture also leans strongly towards the narrative style of role-playing games: it focuses on story, characters and plot over game mechanics.Its rules reflect these two facts. Gamers who play up their mortal hero’s flaws and sacrifice them in honest, true and dramatic ways in the quest for redemption are rewarded.Unlike most role-playing games, combat (or any other situation) is not resolved using a blow-by-blow mechanism. Instead a holistic dice roll is used to resolve big chunks combat, often involving multiple participants. This is partly because many of the battles involve dozens, if not legions, of characters, but also because we wanted to keep Rapture focused on characters and plot. 

How you narrate the results of such battles is what makes this approach work. We hope you enjoy Rapture, The End of Days. We’ve put a lot of time and love into this game, and attempted to provide a game that injects a suitable dark and tense mood into your role-playing experience.

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE #1 FOR RAPTURE: THE END OF DAYS

Grandmaster 0 128 Article rating: No rating

Its existence was secret. Its purpose even more so. Skimming a low orbit of a gas giant, shrouded behind rings of ice and rock, hides a Happy Cat research station. Just who is responsible for this habitat, and why it was never disclosed to the United Colonial Marines is a mystery.

Rapture: End of Days. The quirky, narrative-driven, theological sci-fi horror game from Storyweaver productions, just got better. Sure, we pumped everything we could think of - the rules, heaps of examples, tons of setting material, GM's info and rules for ‘the forces of evil,' GM's tips and story seeds - into the Rapture EoD Core Rulebook, and it was good (if you haven't checked it out yet, go take a look. We'll wait :). The Core Rules layout is dark and moody, befitting the genre, but think of all that toner or ink if you were to print the rules out to have on the tabletop! Well reviewers pointed this out, and we listened!

Set 2 - Save Our Souls! (audio product)

Grandmaster 0 127 Article rating: No rating

If seeing is believing, then hearing is fearing...

Think of all the great horror you've ever experienced. What was the scariest? The monster reveal and all the blood? Or all the lead up, with the creepy music, the strange noises (things that go bump in the night), the frightened voices, and the things you COULDN'T see? If you went for the latter, then you are in the majority.

You better give them what they want, man...

The shots are fired, the demand is made, and the brigands are at your door (or in this case, airlock). What do you do? Roll over and give them what they want and just hope they don't throw you out an airlock, or do you fight back, risking the ship, the crew, and your own, precious life? While these decisions are being made, you need some good, tense, background music to heighten the tension, and this package provides all that, and more!
