From the back of the book:
In Desolation, High Fantasy was Brought Low
Now, there is only survival.
The Night of Fire killed almost everyone, tearing apart the Ascondean Empire and surrounding nations. The Long Winter that followed tested those who remained to the breaking point.
You roleplay a survivor who has inherited the lands of Scondera -- or what remains of it.
Desolation: Survivors is a supplement to Desolation, the Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy Roleplaying Game. Survivors features new rules for creating orc, goblin, and kobold characters, dozens of new creatures, nearly 60 non-player characters and more than 20 new communities for your characters to discover.
The story is yours to tell.
