In January 2019 we presented the Fragged Bundle, featuring Fragged Empire and its many post-humanity, post-post-apocalyptic tactical RPG settings. In the far future you are a genetically engineered remnant, emerging from genocidal war to reclaim what your leaders lost. Some worlds have fallen to barbarism; some retain technology so advanced it seems magical. You stand at the dawn of a new civilization, a time of opportunity and danger.
A June 2014 Kickstarter success (with follow-up crowdfunding in 2016 and 2017), Fragged Empire spawned the fantasy spinoff Fragged Kingdom, the pirate setting Fragged Seas, and more. All use the same robust, adaptable rules that emphasize unique characters, intuitive tactical combat, and long-term “sandbox” campaigns. The Fragged Empire YouTube channel explains it all.
From a “Sell me on Fragged Empire” Reddit thread: “One of the most mechanically rich while still being simple (it’s just three dice, right?) combat system that dynamically changes the battlefield and choices you might make based on attribute damage. All of that inside one of the more unique universes with all-new worlds and races that have a wealth of history and tension built in.” — “Well organized and nonlinear character creation lending itself to diverse progression that enriches a character concept and diversity. Abstract advancement system that lets you roleplay almost any situation at both ends of the table. […] Awesome combat that makes use of terrain and cover.”
This bargain-priced collection had everything you need for science fiction, fantasy, and piratical adventure using this flexible and fast-growing system. There were four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $55) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete full-color 385-page Fragged Empire core rulebook (plus the free Quick Start Rules and the short adventure The Ghost Ship Carthage); Protagonist Archive 1; the full-length introductory adventure Let Sleeping Gods Lie; and the rules expansion Hacked.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $62.50, including Fragged Kingdom and Fragged Seas; CLASSIC Races and Magic (add elves and clerics to your Kingdom); Fragged Dieselpunk Mecha because why not; and the Fragged Empire Ambient Audio Tracks of atmospheric science-fictional background sounds for your game sessions, composed by Tabletop Audio.
