(KS) Hellscapes – Post Apocalyptic Survival for 5th Edition D&D

Fresh from delivering their last Kickstarter, Hyperlanes the cinematic sci-fi rulebook for 5th Edition gaming, Scrivened LLC have turned their gaze to the blasted lands of post apocalyptic gaming with Hellscapes.

Hellscapes is the beaten and battered manual you need to run post-apocalyptic survival games. We’ve scavenged the noble bones of Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition, reworking its lightweight materials into twisted mechanics to serve our needs. We bastardize classes into those that suit the wastes, allowing for new and dangerous heroes to arise. We’ve repurposed the raw materials of Feats and Backgrounds to reflect the storylines of hardened scavengers. We recast Races into Origins, allowing you to customize tribes, mutations, and robotic enhancements to suit the hellish campaign settings you choose.

Need a game where society collapses as the dead rise to consume the living? Want to see how you’d fare against the unblinking gaze of robotic overlords? Hope to lead the uprising of a human resistance against alien conquerors? We’ve got the system for you.

Hellscapes includes all the post-apocalyptic baddies your DM needs to tear you limb from limb, leaving more food for those who remain. Just kidding, we’re sure you’ll make it tough guy.

Living is hard, now that society has fallen. We used to complain that our lives were boring. These days, every moment is a struggle. Every meal is earned. Every breath is precious. Dangers roam the landscape, both human and worse. Few survive, and numbers dwindle. Those who manage to live long are legend, hardened heroes or monstrous villains. You are among them.

Your canteen, your weapon, your food: these are the most precious treasures in the world. But once you reach our level you might start wanting more, the whispered wonders yet to be uncovered. Secrets of old ready to come back into the harsh light of this fallen world.

Will you plumb those depths and scour the wastelands for what we’ve lost? Will you band together with fellow survivors, watching each other’s backs in the treacherous night? Will you lend a blistered hand to rebuilding society in this hell of a world? Or will you break what is left of it, and remake it anew?

New classes are planned to be:
Marauder. Barbarian-based. Doing battle in the wastes with pure will and rage. Archetypes: Feral, Holdout, and Raider

Nomad. Ranger-based. Those who go from place to place, living off the land, surveying the desolation, and weaving society back together. Archetypes: Haggler, Rider, and Survivalist

Outcast. Rogue-based. Living by their own code and their own ways due to fate, chance, or their own need for the open road. Archetypes: Freak, Lone Wolf, and Packrat

Scavenger. Sorcerer-based. Cobbling together new things and new ways from old. Fixing people and things with what’s at hand. Improvising as needed to get the job done. Archetypes: Fetishist, Rigger, and Sawbones

Throwback. Paladin-based. Dedicated to an ethos, bringing back old ways. Oaths relate to specific old ways and ethical codes: Oath of Knowledge, Oath of Office, and Oath of Persistence

Warrior. Fighter-based. Skilled combatants, honed by the varied threats of these hellish lands. Archetypes: Bane, Gladiator, and Warlord

HELLSCAPES: Post Apoalyptic Survival for DnD 5e is running on Kickstarter until Tuesday 1st August 2017.
