The Chaos Lords and the Desert of Death, from here on referred to as Chaos Lords, is a beer and pretzels, completely over-the-top, science fantasy role playing game that should not be taken too seriously. What exactly does that mean?
● Beer and Pretzels game: Simple mechanics, simple characters, almost no math beyond basic addition and dividing by two, and a setting that fully accepts unexpected characters.
● Completely over-the-top: The goal of the game is to ride out from the Last City with your group of heroes, destroy hordes of Death’s minions, and, if you make it far enough, destroy Death itself. Who are these heroes? Just about anything you can dream up. In Appendix A, you will find a few sample characters, including a Viking warchief, the Martian alchemist responsible for destroying most of the dinosaurs on Earth, and a walking war machine being controlled by a brain cloned from Abraham Lincoln.
● Science Fantasy: Alchemists and cloned brains...
● Should not be taken too seriously: ... of former presidents.
