A.C.: AFTER COLLAPSE™ (sometimes referred to as A.C.) presents a detailed post-Collapse environment filled with opportunities for adventure and discovery. Characters, known as “Survivors,” cautiously comb through the dangerous ruins of once-great metropolises. 

Savvy explorers know that finding loot is only half the challenge. The other half is keeping it. Whether it’s to protect an enclave, hold on to what you’ve found or built, or taking things from someone else, the intimidation factor of small arms makes them some of the most desired weapons for the job. 

A.C. uses a d20-based architecture. Features include: 

  • a craft-oriented Basic Skill system that allows survivors and NPCs to make weapons and accessories to their own specifications; 
  • a system of modifiers that adjust Accuracy, Damage, and Penetration to increase the lethality of precision-made firearms; 
  • a system of Material Attributes (MATs) that simulates the physical properties of firearms, ammunition, and accessories; 
  • Materiel Resistance (MAR) factors that define how much corrosion and radiation guns, ammo, and accessories can resist under combat conditions; 
  • differentiation between High Velocity (HV) and Low Velocity (LV) attack types to simulate the potential effectiveness of metal cartridge ammunition; and 
  • the use of Hard Points (HDPs) and Vigor Points (VGPs) to simulate the toughness of Survivors and NPCs and their ability to resist lethal and nonlethal damage. 


Recommended for ages 14+.
