Equinox – Sean’s Pick, 082214

System-agnostic stuff is becoming increasingly popular; so many folks have a game system they like (Savage WorldsFATE, d20, and so on), but are interested in new ways to play with those systems. Lots of very creative folks are focusing on world-building rather than re-inventing game mechanic wheels, and some of the stuff coming out of those efforts is worth a good look for GMs enterprising enough to adapt.

The folks at Vagrant Workshop have “a future fantasy setting of stunning action, frightening intrigue, and mystical powers, set in a war-ravaged dark future.” By way of further explanation,

The Equinox Setting Guide is a book of ideas, a condensed description of a much larger universe. This book presents the setting and background of Equinox, which you can use for a wide variety of things: as a game world for your favorite roleplaying game system, as inspiration for writing stories, for designing your own board or digital games, or just as a good read for spurring your imagination.

Because this book doesn’t contain any game mechanics (except for some general guidelines you might find useful for adapting the setting), you can adapt it easily as a backdrop for your favorite game system.
