Description Edit | History

Taiga - European version, edition 4.2
The Roleplaying Game of Civilization's Fall.

From the back of the book:

NO LAWS, NO SOCIETY, NO HOPE
You are not protected by any laws. Killing you is not a crime.
Calling the police is of no use, even if the phones were working.
Their job is to protect the real people from the likes of you.
You do not exist in official records.
Authorities could not care less if you starve to death.
If you are sighted where the ordinary people live, you'll be shot.
Of every 100 people in the world, 94 share your fate.

The doom of Humanity lies not in the atomic weapons or wars of ideas. It comes cloaked in hunger, disease and pollution. It comes when the Earth is too poisoned to sustain us all.

The rich and powerful have walled themselves off the world and live in their computer-controlled gardens, while outside the electric fences there are no laws, society or hope. Only immense mazes of decaying towns and hastily built beggar huts.
Beyond them lies the wilderness, where small communities here and there clench their teeth to defend themselves from the bandit hordes that rule the roads and bartertowns of the world. Mutants are hiding in the desolate reaches of the world and in the cities organized crime is trying to establish a society of its own.
Small kingdoms are founded on heaps of trash, only to be toppled by barbarian hordes on wheels.

This is the world of Taiga
Where people, plagued with mutations and new diseases, roam the dying world, searching for the peace and the future that is no longer there.

2039 will be the happiest new year yet!

User summary from the introduction pages:

Taiga is, in the words of its creator, a 'lotek', brutal, post-holocaust world where the point of the game is the people, not their goods.
Due to an ecological catastrophe, sea currents have been altered and the Gulf Stream has weakened to the point where it no longer melts the Arctic icecaps. Sea levels have dropped and global drought claimed more than two billion lives.

The taiga of the title is no longer a name for a vegetation zone in northern Europe. It has become the name of a potential refuge, one of the last places on Earth where you could find small forests and drinkable water.
