  • Jump Into The 80s! [WOIN] Action Careers Is Here!

    Having covered the far future, and fantasy medieval worlds, What's OLD is NEW (WOIN) is delving into the 80s with its latest character book, [WOIN] Action Careers! And it's not just the 80s - this book covers careers from the mid 20th century all the way up to the 21st century! Humans, cyborgs, and mutants await, with a massive range of careers including spies, martial artists, archeologists, even astronauts and chefs! And, of course, it's all 100% compatible with N.E.W. and O.L.D. - so you can add detailed martial arts or mutant powers to your sci-fi or fantasy games!


    With dozens of careers, four heritages, and a wide selection of skills, traits, and exploits, this sourcebook for the What's O.L.D. is N.E.W. roleplaying game system walks you through the character creation process.

    Select your character's early careers using the life-path system to create suave secret agents, nimble mutant ninjas, gruff technologically-augmented soldiers of fortune, or prophesied saviours.

    Will your character be a martial-arts expert, a fast-talking con-man, or an embattled boxer? A rugged archeologist, a brave astronaut, or a roving reporter? Only you can decide!

    Also included are the soldiers-of-fortune known only as the Alpha Squad: six pregenerated iconic characters to help you dive in straight away!

    This books requires the use of a What's O.L.D. is N.E.W. core rulebook.
