  • Company: Mayfair (USA)
  • Authors: Ray Winninger
  • First publication: ???
  • Genre: Super-hero cyberpunk
  • Theme: Paraguay was bad, but nothing could have prepared you for Los Angeles. Back in the jungle it was still a tribe thing - you wanted to kill them, they wanted to kill you; no one knew why. But here, death isn't good enough. Here, they want you to hurt first. The sets, the '30s, the fly-jackers, the Estro-Gin addled punk - the only thing standing between you and a body bag are your trusty GCS DW 770/g and a designer genotype. You'd be surprised how often a skin that can shrug off .44 caliber loads comes in handy.
    One day, the punks will identify their real enemy and begin the serious violence - bloodshed of the people, by the people, and for the people. Until then, it's time to run a check and take this war down into the Underground.

Yet a shadow hangs over the world, cast by the corrupting hand of Chaos. From the Imperial court in Altdorf to the pirate-ridden coast of south Tilea, a few heroes strive to hold back the forces of howling Chaos, while its hidden servants scheme from within to bring the world to its knees before the Dark Gods.


  • Company: BTRC (USA)
  • Authors: Greg Porter
  • First publication: ???
  • Genre: Post-apocalyptic fantasy

The fiery energies and massive human scrifice opened the way for something else to enter this plane of existence. The Old Gods are back, and this time they're here to stay.
    WarpWorld opens the gates for you to enter this post-holocaust world of magic and lost technology. A world where the gods are real, and mythical creatures tread the silent streets of our ruined cities. A world where we can remember what we have lost, but not well enough to replace it. A world where those with Power bend the forces of nature to their will, and those without carry shotguns and swords instead. Where the bones of the Old World have been picked clean, and those who remain must either create a new order, or slowly sink into barbarism, forever losing what they once had within their grasp. The year is 2312, but no future you ever dreamed of. Prepare to enter WarpWorld.

Everyone knows that without Drakonium their automated factories will cease to function. Their lights will go out. Their air will become unbreathable. Their people will starve. And everyone knows that Drakonium is running out.
    On Waste World five warrior cultures, forged in the crucible of a ten thousand year conflict, fight for survival. The samurai defend the Shogunate with swords of light. The mighty Cyborg Legions slay the foes of the enigmatic Machine Gods of Prometheus. The decadent aristocrats of Ikarus descend from their flying city in razor-winged battlesuits to plunder and slay. The genetically-engineered soldiers of Hydra are bred only for battle. And the Xenogens of Janus wield the terrifying power of their alien technology.
    Beyond the megacities life is short and brutal. The air is poisonous. The seas are dead. The land is a desert. The world is littered with the ruins of extinct civilizations. Mutants roam the poisoned wastes. Mechanized barbarians plunder the scattered settlements. Sentient death machines stalk the survivors.

  • Company: Mind in the Madness Games
  • Authors: Scott Lininger
  • First publication: 1998
  • Genre: Generic
  • Theme: The Window is a transparent portal into the imagination, a roleplaying system designed with the simple belief that roleplaying is about story and character and not about dice and dick waving.
    That is what the Window strives to be: simple, usable, and universal. There's not a lot to it, admittedly, but that's the whole idea. In the end, the Window is more a system of philosophy than a system of rules; if you share these viewpoints on roleplaying then you'll probably like these mechanics, and if you don't, you probably won't.
  • Notes: This is a free game, it could be downloaded from their web site
