[Modern AGE] World of Lazarus Setting

Post by shesheyan » Sat Jul 28, 2018 12:25 am

« The World of Lazarus is the first campaign setting for Green Ronin’s new Modern AGE RPG. Based on the critically acclaimed Lazarus series by Greg Rucka and Michael Lark and presented by Image Comics, the book brings this noir dystopia to tabletop roleplaying games. In the near future, time has rendered death obsolete, and life infinitely cheap. In the wake of governments’ failure and global upheaval, the Families stepped in and divvied up the world. Now peace and order reign in a world of technological marvels and neo-feudalism. The Families quietly war with one another, wagering the lives of loyal Serfs while they relax in lives of indulgence, all while the Waste—those left behind by this new order—struggle daily for base survival. Play members of a Family in the highest of high-stakes game, Serfs fighting for their Family’s interests to maintain order and safety, or disaffected Waste fighting for a better life in the burned ruins of the old world.»

Well that sounds really epic! Love the idea of approaching the setting from 3 different angles. I haven't read these comics but I do like reading non-superhero graphic novels, so that is right down my alley. A trip to the comic store is in order, I think. ;)

The comics are also being adapted for television :
«A television adaptation is in development with Legendary Television and Amazon Studios.»

Have you read the graphic novels?
