Waste World Roleplaying Game System
In the dark future of a dying earth five warrior civilizations prepare for the final conflict. In each mighty megacity, technology is an ideology that shapes the destiny of billions.
The enigmatic Machine Gods of Prometheus grant their followers the gift of bionics, and faith in total war. The ever-reincarnating samurai defend their Shogun with swords of light. The Lords of Hydra sculpt their followers into superhuman soldiers, using the terrifying power of biotechnology. The decadent nobles of Ikarus descend from their flying city in razor-winged battlesuits to prey on the lands below. The exiled aliens of Janus defend the world's last starport and pray that salvation will come from the stars.
The people of this ravaged planet fight for Drakonium, the most precious substance in the universe, the ultimate energy source. They know without it, their cities will fall, their civilization will collapse and the poisoned deserts will claim their homes.
In the Waste World Roleplaying Game, you can enter this savage struggle for power and dominion. You can use flexible rules to take on the role of a cyborg ninja, a potent psycher, or a fearsome alien and fight mutant monsters or terrible robotic killing machines.
