  • The hunt is on.  We knew roughly where the ghouls were hunting so Romer and myself, after cleaning up, headed to the residential area where the bulk of people had been disappearing.  The hope was we could use my frail appearance to lure the ghouls to attack then deal with...

  • Michael Adler ran some profiles on the corpses we found last night, and sure enough, they were all reported missing in the general vicinity of Volunteer Park, up on Capitol Hill. Mesta and I gear up, and head up for some ghoul hunting, hoping that we can either lure them...

    Premise

    The Last War

     

    2085. Humanity faces extinction. Alien insects from the edge of our solar system, long hidden behind the façade of reality, descend to enslave us. Hordes of unspeakable horrors roll out from Central Asia, laying waste to anything in their path. The church of the fish-god scours the world for lost occult secrets to unleash terrible forces. Dead gods awaken and turn their dreadful eyes toward the Earth. And within hides a cancer, eating away at the very heart of the New Earth Government.

     

    This is the Aeon War. This is the time of CthulhuTech.

     

    Climb inside a thirty-foot tall war machine and rain down hell on the unwavering Migou. Fight tooth and nail on the front lines against the horrific beasts of the Rapine Storm. Seek out the disgusting corruption of the insidious Esoteric Order of Dagon. Explore the dark world of the malignant Chrysalis Corporation and their unseen monstrous agents. Sift through secrets long thought lost and bend the power of the cosmos to your will. Join in symbiosis with something beyond time and space and become a shape-shifting bringer of wrath.

     

    Nowhere else will you find a setting like this.

    • a complete history and detailed exploration of the world of the Aeon War, so that you can start a game right away.
    • nine pieces of provocative short fiction to help portray the feel of the setting.

    •  a unique ritual-based magic system, simulating dark and painstaking universe channeling power, including two dozen mind-wrenching spells.
