Rapture: The End of Days

Hard science and a bright future meets dark horror and authentic theology in truly unique game. It's just, "bloody good fun."

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.

Rapture: The End of Days, Sci-fi Soundscapes

Set 2 - Save Our Souls! (audio product)

So to give your ears a tantalising sample of the audio clues and soundscapes included with StoryWeaver's products, we've taken a selection from our first transmedia adventure, Near Death Experience 01: Destiny's Children, for you to sample, TOTALLY FREE!

That's right; you get to hear and use is:

1. English SOS - the garbled, tense, and downright troubling SOS message sent out from the secret Happy Cat research facility that is the basis for NDE1 - Destiny's Children.

2. Chinese SOS - being a Sino Block Corporation, Happy Cat Industries is definately bilingual, so we've also included the Chinese version of the above SOS.

3. Tapping On The Pipes - a sound effect of a desperate survivor tapping out an SOS in Morse Code on a distant pipe. Usable in many a desperate situation in your own games!

4. Sick to My Stomach - something's unwell, out there in the dark... the sounds of it's retching echoes through the nearby landscape. Then, your heroes discover something horrific - internal organs piled on the ground... the pile is steaming, and slimy, in a puddle of blood and gastric fluids, but there is no sign of the creature they came from, and no hint as to why there were deposited here. Then the retching sounds start again, from different directions... What is it? Where is it? And what does it want?

Sick to my stomach is a previously unreleased bio-industrial soundscape, only available in this package. These four, high quality audio files could easily be used in your own games of Rapture: The End of Days, or any other sci-fi game you might be planning.
