Tomorrow Bomb takes you through the mists of time to stop chronoterrorists, prevent time anomalies, and save the continuum from obliteration! Operations teams Alpha, Beta and Gamma to the briefing room—prepare to intervene on the timeline!
A single atomic explosion wipes out London during the Battle of Britain. But, wait a minute, the Nazis aren’t supposed to have an atomic bomb! Engage in a race against time (no pun intended) to save the whole of modern history in Tomorrow Bomb, a stand-alone adventure for GRAmel’s time-travelling TimeZero setting!
Billions died when the bombs fell. Broken Earth takes you to a small post-apocalyptic fraction of the remaining world, what was once the northern Midwest of the United States with a tiny bit of southern Central Canada, to pick up the pieces and begin the rebuilding.
Sneak Attack Press‘ Broken Earth contains everything you need to run (or play in) a prolonged campaign in this post-apocalyptic setting, including locations, NPCs, plot points, mutant monsters, and a detailed first adventure to bring all your players together. Everything you need to play without running is available separately in the Broken Earth Player’s Guide.
West of the Southern Trade Road lies The Empty Zone, so named because there are no oases and no permanent settlements. A desolate, arid wasteland of sand and ruins, it was once a vibrant center of civilization. For many who dare walk the shifting sands, all that awaits is death, and yet adventurers and opportunists are drawn here, for the countless ruins are supposed to hold wondrous treasures.
- New locations and NPCs,
- More information on Iblis, the god of chaos,
- Minor deities and monsters, and
- A new Edge for those who traffic with darkness!
Rippers—Pinnacle’s classic Victorian adventure setting of secret societies researching and fighting werewolves, vampires, and other supernatural creatures around the world—is coming to a brand new medium. Krasnodymov Productions has licensed Rippers: Rise of the Great One for PCs and mobile devices as a tactical roleplaying game with a heavy emphasis on story.
Battle the evils of the supernatural world, deal with dark secrets from your past, and take the risks associated with Ripping—implanting the parts of the very creatures you fight against in yourself in a bid for more power. But the power comes at a price, for what taint may come to even the greatest hero’s soul when his body is modified with the claws, fangs, and blood of unholy monsters?
The future of Rippers: Rise of the Great One depends on you! Visit Krasnodymov’s Rippers: Rise of the Great One IndieGoGo campaign for full details on backing the game to make it a reality, the planned gameplay features, and rewards for different contribution levels. Be a part of the future of a dark past—check it out today!
Both tales take you into the world of Necessary Evil, giving you a glimpse of what it’s like when super-villains are forced into the uncomfortable role of hero to save the world from an alien invasion. But only one tale costs you anything, because we’re giving away Faces of Destruction absolutely free! Get it before we wise up!

The Salt Basin, a vast depression devoid of water and vegetation, ranks as one of the most inhospitable places in Al-Shirkuh. And yet there is life in this blistering hot wilderness.
