The After is a setting of savage frontier action (think The Revenant or Jeremiah Johnson) in a sci-fi post-apocalyptic world (think Annihilation or The Quiet Place). It uses the newly retooled Savage Worlds Adventure Edition.
The After is set in the wild reaches of the broken North American continent. You play survivors of the shattered human race trying to rebuild their world after nearly a century of alien predation and war. In The After, the powerful aliens that overwhelmed humanity have moved on. The war is over. Now it’s a gritty battle to reclaim the Earth. The damage is severe and only in the most sparsely populated areas have people survived at all.
The After is a full-color, 244 page book with detailed, provocative artwork by Jon Gibbons and written by Sean Nokes. The book features new playable races, new Arcane Backgrounds, new Edges and Hindrances as well as additional rules to evoke the unique feeling of the setting – including scavenging, item decay and deterioration, a Bestiary of foes and an extensive Gazetteer of the Wind River region of Wyoming, where the action takes place. In addition, The After has its own sort of unearthly items – Remnants – left behind by the alien races who used Earth as a battleground. These unique and powerful items are sought out by survivors to give both themselves and their communities a fighting chance to make a better life.
The After is a collaboration between Jade Monkey Studios and Fainting Goat Games.
