Obsidian: The Age of JudgementA mystic post-daemonic-apocalypse science-fantasy RPG¸ set in the year 2299¸ after the manifestation of Hell upon the Earth Plane in 2029. It is set within the ""Zone""¸ a massive monolithic structure housing the remains of Humanity. They are threatened by ""Daemons"" from outside which feed on sin¸ and sympathetic ""Kultist"" within. Characters have the option to play heavenly characters imbued by the Divinity¸ daemonic characters who serve the daemon hordes¸ or neutral characters that serve only themselves or the megacorporations within the Zone. It uses a skill-based dice-pool system: total (attribute + skill) d6's vs. difficulty. - A description from https://darkshire.net/jhkim/rpg/encyclopedia/ with kind permission of John H. Kim
Obsidian is not just another post-apocalyptic game system. Instead there is a good amount of gothic and demonic elements mixed in. In Obsidian¸ Hell has broken into the real world and daemons run free. Most of the earth has been demolished¸ save for one huge stronghold known as The Zone. This structure¸ raising into the stratosphere and holds many cultures divided by the level/sections of the Zone.
The corebook to the Obsidian universe¸ this book has all the rules¸ mechanics¸ history¸ setting¸ and players that are used in the game. Obsidian is set in the 2299¸ as a desperate humanity wages war against the manifested legions of Hell itself. In the final battle¸ the last vestiges of mankind construct a fortified city to hold the Daemonic hordes at bay. Within this city¸ massive corporations vie for power¸ Daemonic Kults carve a bloody swath through its citizenry¸ and technology has surpassed the limits of the flesh. Take care when choosing your allies¸ even more when choosing your enemies. This is the Zone. Obsidian allows the player to take control over any type of character¸ from the infernal kultist to the self proclaimed messiah. In between are littered a menagerie of corporate soldiers and cybernetically-clad street assassins. Included in the book are rules to create Daemons from scratch¸ security systems¸ corporate construction rules¸ and of course all the tools necessary to make and play an Obsidian character.
