B.C.: BEFORE COLLAPSE SMALL ARMS VOLUME II

created by Justin Oldham; edited by Beth Hartt and Anne K. Nagel

Whether  you’re protecting your home and family, exploring the ruins of  civilization or simply travelling from place to place, it sometimes  takes more than sheer will to succeed.  Defending yourself from those  who want your possessions - or your life - may require you to rely on  something more than strong language.  Before the chaos of the Collapse,  both individuals and governments found that caseless firearms and  ammunition were the best tools the task.


B.C.: BEFORE COLLAPSE® uses a d20-based architecture.  Features include:

       •   a craft-oriented Basic Skill system that allows Characters 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 

           caseless firearms;

       •   a system of Material Attributes (MATs) that simulates the 

           physical properties of caseless 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, simulating the potential effectiveness of 

            caseless 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.


The future is coming.  Will you be ready for it?

A B.C.: BEFORE COLLAPSE® anthology.


This  fast-paced collection of short stories provides a short pre-Collapse  history of epic achievements that might have saved the world.   Revelations include everything from the use of genetic editing to  enhance humans and clean up our polluted planet, to preparations for the  troubles that were coming, to the staggering technological  breakthroughs that would unleash artificial intelligence on an  unsuspecting world.


Meet  the friends and adversaries that hold the keys to tomorrow.  Follow  them as they make decisions that affect everything that is yet to come.   Experience the best of a dynamic, not-so-distant future and the worst  of the social and political betrayals that made the Collapse possible.


These tales mark the beginning of the end.  From here, we make the future.


Recommended for ages 14+.
