If you are reading this, then you have already been admitted into the ranks of the Inquisition. Whether you take up the reins as an inquisitor or act as a member of your inquisitor’s retinue, your life has now permanently changed. What I’m about to share with you may never leave the confines of your mind; if it does, you will be branded a rogue and hunted down.
History is a lie. What you learn has been censored by those who would keep you ignorant, but ignorance brings safety. A fragile mind will crack beneath the pressures of the truth and carrying the burden of knowledge can break even the strongest souls. But you are different; you are prepared to be enlightened.
Welcome to Judgment Day, a supernatural hunting role-playing game for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition. Now in its 3rd edition, Judgment Day places players in the role of those employed by the Inquisition to protect all of humankind from the dangers that lurk in the darkness. Placed in the latter decades of the 19th century, during the throes of the Second Coming of the Occult, all of life is in your hands as you face down the dangers that wish to open the gates of the chaos realm and enslave humankind at the hands of demons, malevolent beings, and the heretics that serve them.
Judgment Day includes everything players and GMs need to run adventures and campaigns with character options, new equipment, adversaries, mission frameworks, and a detailed look at the setting. Placed within the alternate historical fantasy timeline known as Shadowed Earth, it takes place in a familiar 19th century where folklore, mythology, and the horrors of history are made real.
It is time you learn your duties.
Inside the pages of this Judgment Day core setting guide you will find:
- New options for building your characters.
- A detailed look at the setting.
- A collection of mysteries and missions to play.
- A complete mission builder.
