Two brand new Zone Compendia were released today for the award-winning postapocalyptic tabletop RPG MUTANT: YEAR ZERO by Free League Publishing and distributed by Modiphius: THE ETERNAL WAR and HOTEL IMPERATOR


Slowly, the robot boots up again. It feels its circuits wake up, system after system coming online. Recharging and repairs are complete. The robot runs a quick diagnostic scan of its key functions. 73% capacity. It will have to do. The order must be completed. The robot draws its laser rifle and assumes a firing stance, bracing the rifle on a rusty metal beam, scarred by enemy fire. The robot scans the darkness. Large drone cranes hang from the ceiling high above like huge claws. Rusty old submarines rest silently in the black waters below.

“Unit KAN-738 reports. Day 7,298. The operations continues. The enemy must be destroyed.”


The Zone Compendium THE ETERNAL WAR for Mutant: Year Zero and Mutant: Mechatron includes four exciting Special Zone Sectors:

  • THE ETERNAL WAR – Robot fights robot in an underground duel without end.
  • FORT ROBOT – An abandoned Wild West-themed amusement park from the Old Age has new, artificial, inhabitants.
  • NORTHBAY NANDEEP 23 – The warning message from the ancient farming facility contains only two words: “WARNING! Nano contamination.”
  • THE ROBOT FACTORY – Thick smoke rises from the smokestacks of the old dilapidated factory in the Zone. Who has moved in?


In the dimly lit room, serious-looking men and women sit around a long table. At the short end, a man with long silvery hair and wearing a black suit presides over the meeting. His left eye lacks both iris and pupil, the white of it tinged by an unnatural icy blue. An old machine on the table projects a photo of a scrap village on the wall. The door to the room opens. Two people enter, cloaked in shadows.

“Number 2 and Number 3, report,” the white-haired man demands.

“Thank you, Number 1,” one of the newcomers responds. “We have much to do.”


The Zone Compendium HOTEL IMPERATOR for Mutant: Year Zero includes four exciting Special Zone Sectors:

  • HOTEL IMPERATOR – The mysterious Brain Ring has established its headquarters in an ancient hotel. What are the psionics’ nefarious plans?
  • THE LONG ROAD – A nomadic tribe of mutants travel through the Zone. What can the player characters learn from them?
  • THE ZONE FAIR – A robot has reopened an ancient amusement park in the Zone. What dirty secrets do its visitors bring with them?
  • THE GREAT ZONE WALKER – A colossal machine is rumbling through the Zone. Who controls it, and where is it going?

Of course, the world ends. It was always just a question of time. When it’s all over, nature invades the ruined cities and winds sweep through empty streets. Yet life remains. In the Ark, a small settlement on the edge of a dead town, the People live. You are the spawn of humanity, but not human anymore. You are twisted, mutated freaks. Your bodies and minds have incredible powers, but you are unstable. None of the People are over 30 years old. Except the Elder. Your leader, one of the Old People. He has always warned you: Stay in the Ark, or the Rot will get you. So far, you have obeyed him. But now the safe days are over. Food is running scarce, and the fight for what’s left is turning violent. And the Elder is dying.
It’s time to explore the Zone. To seek out others and create a new civilization on the ruins of the old. Seek your origin. Maybe you will find Eden, where salvation awaits according to the legends. Maybe it’s all bullshit. It doesn’t matter. You have no choice. This is the beginning. This is Year Zero.
