Portray the mind-scarred: psychics, telepaths, mutants and monsters at large on the fringes of society. It’s not when…it’s how. And are you going to go on your feet or on your knees? Schism is an existentialist sci-fi RPG setting based on the works of David Cronenberg.
Schism is an alternate reality setting for Ron Edwards’ Sorcerer. Like Sorcerer, Schism deals with themes of power and madness. But unlike Sorcerer, the characters in Schism are not seekers of forbidden knowledge. They are victims, caught in the machinery of progress. Characters in Schism are the recipients of incredible abilities dredged up from some shadowy aspect of the human mind.
