About

      Necrotopia is an Apocalyptic RPG where you and your friends battle through multiple Apocalypses. Faced with invasion of evil forces through portals, travel across worlds after you master use of portals. Original story and art with unique characters and settings.

     Uses a D6 game system with move creation that is simple and highly customizable. Create a character in 5 minutes and play a session within an hour. Fun for veteran RPG players and new players.

     Necrotopia is a role playing game written and developed by Keenan Dunham. This is an independent project of a combination of ideas and stories Keenan has created. Our goal is to release the first 30 page stand alone rule-set book, and expand the Necrotopia Universe after that with more campaign books.

     With the limited time-frame of the first kickstarter we will only be releasing the 30 page rule-set book along with some special bonuses. Artists are being paid up front for original art used, not from promises of future money.  Some art used is public domain.

     The game itself is meant to be a beginners pen and paper role-playing game that can appeal to anyone. It is simple and highly customizable. Here is a sample of the story from book one: "Necrotopia’s story begins with sparks of an invasion of demonic and inter-dimensional forces attacking Earth, initiating a battle for survival and conquest. There is a battle between Heaven and Hell brewing and you and your friends are caught in the middle. What happens depends on you with one person taking the role of Game Maestro and the rest taking the roles of role playing characters." We hope you and your friends have a ton of fun with this game!

     Keenan Dunham is the writer and creator of Necrotopia: Handbook to the Apocalypse. The idea actually came from a book he was planning to write and the game will include many characters from those ideas. The book may get written if Necrotopia is successful. Other writing projects Keenan was working on got merged all into a greater world of Necrotopia, and it makes for a lot of fun. Expect a growing universe of characters and places to come. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

We are paying artists up front so there is no risk of artists not being rewarded for their contributions. Profits after costs are also shared with the artists. There is only the time-crunch that is difficult in producing this work. Once we get book one completed in the first 30 days we would like to add stretch goals for more books and a final hardback omnibus combining them all. We are planning some special limited rewards, so please keep checking back and tell your friends.

Necrotopia has been fully written and play-tested. At this current point in time we are only adding any extra material unlocked by stretch goals, commissioning the remaining art, and the doing the final graphic design and layout for our planned expansions and highest print quality. We are comfortably within being able to ship this product to you in a high quality format as we are well ahead in our fully fleshed development.

Completing all these within a set time-frame takes planning and commitment. We love to work on this project and it is rewarding to create something fun! Hope you enjoy!
