Apocalypse Keys RPG Up On Kickstarter

Ok, sure, you're a "monster" with "terrible powers" that "could destroy the world." But, you could also be a "hero" with "amazing powers" that "will save the world." That's where you find yourself in Apocalypse Keys, a new RPG from Evil Hat Productions that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

The Doomsday Clock is ticking down and emotions run high as you and your team of DIVISION agents struggle to find the Keys before the villainous Harbingers unlock the Doors of Power and bring about the apocalypse.

As an Omen class monster, you wield formidable power that can greatly aid the world. But society shuns you and, more importantly, fears the things you are capable of. And so you work covertly through DIVISION, a secret organization that battles occult threats, classifies supernatural phenomena, and investigates the impending apocalypse. DIVISION not only gives you the chance to save the world but also offers the kinship of other monsters like yourself. These relationships may be the only way to stave off the growing darkness brewing within you. A darkness that threatens to turn you into the very thing you’re fighting against, a Harbinger.

Apocalypse Keys is a tabletop roleplaying game using the streamlined Powered by the Apocalypse engine. It promotes safe, collaborative storytelling, larger-than-life player characters, and both empathetic and cataclysmic solutions. Influences include: Hellboy, B.P.R.D., Men In Black, Penny Dreadful, and Doom Patrol.

You are a superhuman monster who can save the world. But who will reach out and save a monster like you? Reveal your heart, or embrace the darkness.

The campaign's over 2x funded with 26 days left to go.
