AFTER CENTURIES OF CHAOS
A NEW AMERICA IS BORN
In the wake of nearly two centuries of famine and decay, America endures as a loosely-connected smattering of shattered cities linked only by old rail lines and the efforts of the dubiously-benevolent Church of Oruvos. While various groups fight for control of the hearts and minds of its inhabitants, the citizens therein simply struggle to survive in a world run by the ruthless and unkind to the weak.
In short? It’s all gone to hell.
FIND YOUR FRIENDS
FOLLOW YOUR GODS
Necessity can make for an excellent motivator. In America's theocratic landscape of warring religions, your best bet for survival is to band together. Typically this means throwing in your lot with one of the many religions to be found in Delphia. Religion is the blood of the city and its people, and is your primary supplier of resources - including deadly cybernetics, electrogenetic splices, or gadgetry. Powered by kinetic energy and an infinitely malleable data known as Source, these mods can take almost any form you can conceive of.
And you’ve certainly seen some…creative mods around the city.
AN IMPROV STORY GENERATOR
Harsh Generation is part card game, part narrative romp that takes players through a variety of improvisational, self-generating challenges and crises as they try and heal a world torn apart by centuries of strife while maintaining shaky allegiances between friends, foes, and America's variety of gods. Play through a set campaign or off the cuff - there's always something waiting in the shadows, someone ready to sell, or a community in need of saving in post-Blackout Delphia.
