Fantasy Flight Games new RPG game The End of the World has announced its second book, Wrath of the Gods. In this unique RPG you get to play yourself and negotiate the terrors that each book presents. In this edition you will be presented with five different scenarios to challenge you and your survival skills with the end of the world. Another interesting aspect is you start each of the scenarios in your own hometown and use the resources that you would find in this area to continue your survival.
Fantasy Flight Games describes it best…
“Your starting place and hometown may remain the same between games, but each of the five scenarios in Wrath of the Gods offers a very different look at how the supernatural might end civilization. The ancient Mayan apocalypse may come to pass, along with the return of the Mayan people and the feathered serpent, Quetzalcoatl. You may find the events foretold in the Book of Revelation unfolding around you as the Four Horsemen ravage the world. Earth itself may reject humanity, causing animals to turn on their masters and plants to grow at unbelievable speeds. The Norse gods may return to the world to meet their fated opponent as Ragnarök explodes around you. Finally, Cthulhu may rise from his resting place in the heart of the Pacific ocean, heralded by cultists and Deep Ones and bringing untold terror and insanity to every inhabitant of Earth.”
I find the premise of this game very intriguing and could lead to some very interesting game play sessions. I can see it now, you get a group of friends together anywhere, share some drinks and food and see what interesting events unfold. I imagine you can find out good your friends really are.
Do you have what it takes to survive The End of the World?
