“The ol’ granddads destroyed the world. They used the biggest bombs to blast the world and burn it down. Most everyone died in those wars, but a few were cursed to live, to hide in the cracks ‘n crevices of the earth like bugs through The Lost Age...
We forgot most of the ways of the ol’ granddads but bits and pieces got passed down through the years. We rebuilt the world in a simpler way, when folks used wood and iron, before plastech ruined everything. Most folks keep to a pretty simple way of life, because we know that old tech brought nothin’ but ruin.
We call this land the Old States, but there ain’t no states, just a few carved-out territories. Most of the land is wild, and everything in it is out to eat ya. Best to find a safe hole to squat in and keep your head down before the next DUSTER rolls in…”
About the Game:
DUSTER is a tabletop role-playing game set in the ruins of the Old States, where folks have rebuilt their world in the style of the old west. Players take on roles as Slingers, Brawlers, Ironjacks, Witchlike and many more to explore this fascinating and dangerous world.
DUSTER is an original game engine that features a simple character creation system but a very deep level of customization as characters develop. Skill rolls are based on 1d6 and minimal stats so there is less time studying character sheets and more time playing! The combat system is unique and innovative, using an action point system to keep fights fresh and fun every round.
This Kickstarter edition hardcover book will not be printed with this sweet cover art again! This book contains the DUSTER core game as well as three chapters of lore and quests that stretch from coast to coast of the Old States!
