Rapture: The End of Days

The End of days... 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.

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 second transmedia adventure, Near Death Experience 02: Transit to Perdition, for you to experience, TOTALLY FREE!

That's right; you get to peruse and use the following:

1. Pirate Demand Transmission - a gruff, threatening, and fairly generic demand from one ship to another, after the warning shots have been fired. This is a great little set piece that really gets the players into the moment when their ship had been waylaid by pirates! Deliberately generic to fit into your own game.

2. The Tension Is Killing Me - the title speaks for itself! Something is not right here, there are crew missing, there are strange, bloody footprints leading to the lower decks, and every bump and creak of the superstructure feels like death! Then you sense it more than hear it, whateveritis... it's on this deck, and it's coming... for you!

The Tension Is Killing Me is straight out of NDE2 : Transit to Perdition and gives you a great idea of the quality of audio enhancements you can expect in NDE2, and all of our adventure products.

3. Like Love From A Little Fake Girl - she's pleasant, she's cheery, she anime-esque, and there is really, really, something not right about her. Is it the ‘bubble-boy' suit she's forced to wear, or the care-free way she skips around, almost totally incongruent to the situation you are sharing. How did she get here? What is she doing? And why is it, when she looks at you, you want to silently scream???

Like Love From A Little Fake Girl is a previously unreleased soundscape, only available in this package. These three, 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.

So don't delay. At this price, what have you got to fear? [insert evil laugh, fading into the void]
