Imagine, if you will, that the industrial revolution occured decades before the apocalypse, only to be picked back up a century later amongst the pieces of a broken world. Sordid Dystopia is a post-industrialist and vaguely post-apocalyptic game set in a low-fantasy world, where the public, concerned mostly about their social and economic livelihood, are blissfully ignorant to the inhuman eyes that watch from their shadows. Written by Nathan Knapp, Sordid Dystopia is the flagship game for the TOPIA engine.

The future of Nachsun hangs in the balance. The tipping point is coming soon.

LeJeune’s Home – In the Shadow of Vaden

The Lejuene’s gang wakes up to an empty home. Lejuene is missing. Everyone except a few kids are missing. Nothing else seems out of place. The gang quickly scrambles out of bed (except Roland, who’s a big sleepyhead) and tracks down the mystery.

What they find will lead them to the edge of events in motion that are much, much greater than them. Vaden casts a long shadow, across the island, back to the beginning of our hero’s stories. Secrets and revelations hide in that darkness, and they have fangs.
