Obsidian: the Age of Judgement

This setting has a little bit of everything, plus the kitchen sink, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Daemons, magic, cybernetics, shadowy corporations make for a ton of plot hooks and character options, and its all set in a post-apocalyptic nightmare of a world. The book's layout can be confusing, but I've seen worse from bigger publishers. The combat rules can also be ambiguous at time, but the tone and setting more than made up for any mechanical issues for me and my group. I run games for a group of Air Force guys who've never played PnP RPGs before, and Obsidian clicks for our group in a way that other systems don't.

Thank you! We tried to fix a lot of those mechanical issues with the Shadow Nations corebook, which is essentially, Obsidian in Europe.

The setting of this game is excellent, one of the most interesting I've run or played in. The last bastion of humanity set upon and surrounded by the hordes of hell, which have been directly caused by the sins of man.

Its gritty, dark future with bags of ideas, full of juicy campaign ideas waiting to be exploited; Evil kultist bent on the dominance or destruction of mankind, using soul powered magic to bend reality to their ends.

The game system is ok, a little clunky but workable. With some nice ideas for experience and motivation.

Where the book falls down is in its assembly/editing, its difficult to find anything- still its worth the effort as this is one over looked gem of a game.
