curse the darkness RPG on Kickstarter

curse the darkness is a roleplaying game set in a post-apocalyptic version of our world.

The World

In 2012, a mysterious, unnamed individual conquered the world, leveling cities and destroying institutions of finance, religion, nationality and other ideology. He demanded that the people of the world take care of each other, with no promise of reward in the afterlife and no monetary compensation. Anyone who dissented and tried to hold on to their ideological identity was executed. The man wielded a force that no one on Earth could match – the creatures from the Between.

The System

curse the darkness uses an original game system based around playing cards. Unlike many RPGs, it doesn’t have a skill list or a complicated system for resolving combat and other situations. Instead, players undertake two kinds of Challenge: Character and Removal.
