Apocalypse Keys

Welcome to the Apocalypse

APOCALYPSE KEYS is a tabletop roleplaying game about monsters holding back the apocalypse. They are agents who work for the DIVISION, a mysterious organization dedicated to understanding the occult, taming the supernatural, and protecting the world. A world that is built for the mundane and for humans. A world that tries to pretend that monsters are not real.

In this book, you’ll find:

  • Mysteries: The harbingers of the Apocalypse are working behind the scenes. They are manipulating monsters and humans to serve their goals and open the doors of the Apocalypse. As agents of DIVISION you must use your unique powers of darkness, contacts, tools, and skill to make sense of what is happening in each specific location.
  • Dangerous Power: You are a monster, with great power at your disposal. But that power is tied to something humans and the world can never understand. In this game, when you go too far, you or others will pay the price. The toll of this weighs heavily on your heart.
  • Emotional Entanglements: You are monsters fighting monsters, and there are very few like you. Fewer still who work with the DIVISION. Your relationships mean everything. You create bonds with each other as a means of controlling your powers, making sure you don’t go too far. Fight, fall in love, succumb to your emotions, be vulnerable..
  • Ruin Awaits: You each have something the darkness demands of you, and it is tied to the terrible ruin that awaits you. It may be prophecy, destiny, enemies more powerful than you, or simply the truth of your nature.
  • Playbooks: Six different monsters with strong themes: The Summoned, The Pure, The Found, The Shade, The Last, and The Fallen.

APOCALYPSE KEYS is a Powered by the Apocalypse (PbtA) game. Mechanically it is inspired by lots of great games, including Brindlewood Bay, Urban Shadows, Pasión de las Pasiones, Hearts of Wulin, and Libreté. It focuses on mystery, the rule of cool, fighting back personal ruin, and found family.
