Unknown Armies (Oct 2013)

Wednesday 28 February 2018
Unknown Armies RulebookIn February 2018 we resurrected our October 2013 Unknown Armies Bundle. Unknown Armies is the acclaimed Atlas Games tabletop roleplaying game of postmodern occult intrigue, transcendental horror, and furious action. Designed by Greg Stolze (Godlike, Reign) and John Scott Tynes (Delta Green), Unknown Armies presents magick as it might exist in a world informed by crime fiction and secret histories, as twisting wrinkles in reality created by sacrifice and obsession. It’s about humanity, and how the most broken among us have the power to align reality with their fevered desires. It’s about getting what you want, despite others trying to keep it from you. It’s a pulp apocalypse, a metaphysical ass-kicking, the steel-cage death match of all eternity.

StatosphereWith the cosmos due for collapse and rebirth, you have a chance to reshape the world in your own image. To do that, you must transform yourself into one of the 333 Archetypes of the Invisible Clergy. What will you sacrifice to reach this ultimate goal? How far will you go? The UA Madness Meter — the best Sanity system in the field — will measure your balance between hardened socopathy and utter mental collapse. Intense, informed, and deeply imaginative, Unknown Armies draws you in — and, if you’re strong, upward — like no other game.

In the authoritative Game Index of 61,126 entries, including over 19,600 separate games, Unknown Armies ranks #6. On our sales page we quoted many, many reviews of the 2002 rulebook. They went on and on; we couldn’t stop quoting. Every review found a new way to say “This is one of the best designs ever published.”

One ShotsThe original October 2013 Unknown Armies Bundle was extremely popular, as was its first revival in July 2014. This was yet another chance to join the Occult Underground with the 2002 Second Edition rulebook and many transcendent supplements. There werethree titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $32) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • Unknown Armies Second Edition (retail $20): The complete 336-page rulebook from 2002 (not to be confused with the recent Third Edition funded in a spectacular March 2016 Kickstarter campaign). Enter the magickal underground to fight for ascension to a higher plane and the next incarnation of reality.
  • One Shots (retail $9): Five top-notch standalone scenarios.
  • Godwalker (retail $3): The masterful Unknown Armies novel written by the game’s co-designer, Greg Stolze.
Break TodayThose who paid more than this offer’s threshold (average) price¬†also got this offer’s entire Bonus Collection with four more titles worth an additional $57, including many highlights of the Unknown Armies line:
  • Break Today (retail $15): The bizarre anarchist occult conspiracy known as Mak Attax wants to upsize your soul, one fast-food burger at a time.
