Apocalypse the Risen Campaign Setting is a post-apocalyptic fantasy horror roleplaying game. The setting takes place on Earth, twenty-five years after the fall of society in an event known as the Rise. Demons, the dead, mutated horrors, and existential dread wait around every corner. In order to survive the Rise, humanity formed colonies to rebuild civilization. Do you want to continue the fight against the growing Darkness? Of course, that’s why you are here. Survival in this apocalypse requires grit, desire, skill, and maybe a little bit of luck. So join us in the fight!
The Fall came gradually at first. Seals being broken and ancient wards destroyed while we watched the evening news. The signs were all around us, delirious messages sent 280 characters at a time. As the last Seal shattered, the multiverse was ripped asunder. Now dead walk the Earth and demonkind advance through portals long forgotten.
When the Veil tore, Purgatory itself yawned wide. Souls of the past were ripped from their existence in the Grey and found new homes in the bodies of the dead. Corpses awoke from their graves and twisted into reanimation. Known as Risen, these zombies possess an insatiable and indiscriminate hunger.
