Free Breachworld Preview Available

Last week I blogged about a Kickstarter project I'm quite excited about: Breachworld, a post-apocalyptic science-fantasy setting that I'm hoping will prove to be a nice alternative to Rifts proper.

One thing I didn't really mention in that post was the fact that, based off what was up on the Kickstarter page at the time, I really didn't have a good sense for what the "world" of Breachworld was actually like. Since then, the game's author, Jason Richards, has released a preview of the Races chapter for subscribers to check out, and I definitely liked what I saw. But I still didn't have much of a concept of the geo-politics or societies of the setting.

Well sir, that's been addressed as of today - and in spades I might add - with the release of a 77-page preview of portions of the core book's working draft. But here's the best part, and why I'm posting about it: the preview is free to the public! No need to be a Kickstarter backer; just point your browser over to DriveThruRPG and snag a free download.

What's especially neat is that you can also download the free Mini Six system and actually start running some Breachworld action as soon as...now, really.

And for the record, I'm quite pleased with the world as presented in the preview. There's tons of meaty goodness and story hooks, and well-considered blends of high-tech, low-tech, and the supernatural. Great stuff! If you're a fan of Rifts, Gamma World, or post-apocalyptic science-fantasy in general, you should definitely check this one out.

My favorite Breachworld race so far: "The Holy".
