The Fedora Chronicles Radio Show 85 - Lee Andercheck and Akroydiesel Age RPG
June 23rd, 2018 | Lee Andercheck talks to Eric Renderking Fisk about this role-playing game, his love for the genre of dieselpunk, and definitive media that all jazz era retrocentrics should enjoy.
The Akroydiesel Age is a dieselpunk setting which hearkens back to the society and style of 1930s America. With an anachronistic set of technologies futuristic and old fashioned, AdA is a world littered with loot, mutants, and monsters without forsaking sophisticated societies. This book covers the Eastern Free States (E.F.S.), the government of what was the United States’ East Coast.
It has been an eon since unified human civilization was shattered by an engineered catastrophe that nearly destroyed humanity. Civilization’s resurgence over the past century and a half stands in stark opposition to the lands still wallowing in the scars of the Lost Age. The discord sown by clashes between newly risen nation-states means the land must flow with blood and oil.
