Licensee Spotlight: The After: Post-Apocalyptic Action for SWADE

Published On: May 28, 2019Categories: News

The After, from Fainting Goat Games and Jade Monkey Studios, is a setting of savage frontier action (think The Revenant or Jeremiah Johnson) in a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic world (think Annihilation or The Quiet Place).

Set in the northwestern reaches of the broken North American continent, you play survivors of the shattered human race trying to rebuild their world after nearly a century of alien predation and war. This utterly destructive invasion of Earth, followed by a terrifying war between rival alien species far more advanced than mankind, has left the planet a broken version of its former self. Major cities and areas of industrial and military strength have been completely obliterated. Only in the world’s most sparsely populated areas have people survived: areas that were ignored or undervalued by the rampaging alien forces.

The After will be a full-color, 150+ page book for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition with detailed, provocative artwork by Jon Gibbons. The book will feature new playable races, new Arcane Backgrounds, new Edges and Hindrances, additional rules to evoke the unique feeling of the setting – including scavenging, item decay and deterioration, a Bestiary of foes, and an extensive Gazetteer of the Wind River region of Modern Wyoming, where the setting takes place.

In addition, The After has its own sort of unearthly items – Remnants –  left behind by the alien races who used Earth as a battleground. These unique and powerful items are sought out by survivors to give both themselves and their communities a fighting chance to make a better life.
