POLARIS

"Humankind was born in the seas and is now coming back here to survive" - Vulrick the mad.

The Polaris RPG is set in a far future where the world aboveground has become uninhabitable for the human species. Human beings have found refuge in the depths of the ocean, where they try to somehow survive in spite of the many difficulties they encounter in this hostile environment.

All these elements and many others make up the backdrop of this universe in which one great mystery prevails: The Polaris Effect.

"According to an old Hegemonian saying, it is in the ocean's darkness that you can really measure the courage of a man..."

Summary of content :

  • The world of the deep - Setting overview
  • Character creation
  • Game system


The Polaris RPG is set in a far future where the world above ground has become uninhabitable for the human species. Human beings have found refuge in the depths of the ocean, where they try to somehow survive in spite of the many difficulties they encounter in this hostile environment. The species’ degeneration (characterized by the increasing number of sterile individuals and various genetic mutations), the perpetual wars that have ravaged entire colonies, the monsters, and, above all, the difficulty of exploiting natural resources are the immediate problems faced by this civilization.

In this new world of silence and darkness, players can choose to become agents of one of the underwater factions, mercenaries working to keep afloat, or freelancers trying to establish their own communities. No matter which side they pick, they will discover that nothing is completely black or white, and that humankind will need to unite against a common adversity if it wants to survive. Meanwhile, they will have to fight against all odds and gear up as best they can, buying precious breathing mixes or fluids. They will need to tinker, patch up, and stitch together their submarines. Luck may smile upon them when they discover brand-new equipment or one of the stashes left behind by the ominous Empire of the Geneticians. Their fate will be much darker if they happen to stumble upon raiders or pirates. Adventurers will, however, get a chance to gain fame and even influence the world’s destiny through their actions and discoveries. Humankind is in need of heroes, and empires can sometimes be born from simple ideals. All these elements and many others make up the backdrop of this universe in which one great mystery prevails: the Polaris Flux.

The Polaris RPG gives Players and Game Masters the possibility to play in different ways: try to survive in the darkness of the seas, be part of the perpetual wars, and discover the mysteries that prevail in the oceans or take part in the political intrigues between ambitious nations.
