Destiny's Children

Its existence was secret. Its purpose even more so. Skimming a low orbit of a gas giant, shrouded behind rings of ice and rock, hides a Happy Cat research station. Just who is responsible for this habitat, and why it was never disclosed to the United Colonial Marines is a mystery.

But now it needs your help. A broken, chilling broadcast has been received: "Mayday... situation dire. Biohazard containment... holed up in deck... radiation... running out of food... need urgent evacuation..."

Since the events of Earth one year earlier, every soul matters. You don't know what you are in for, nor what sort of crapstorm these commie corporate idiots have brought upon themselves, but whatever it is, you are confident you can handle it.


Destiny's Children is the first in a series of Adventures for Rapture: The End of Days, which can be run as stand alone missions, or fit neatly together as part of a larger story arc leading humanity back to Earth... and the ulimate battle for humanity's last soul.

Near Death Experience

Near Death Experience scenarios are richly detailed adventures for Rapture: The End of Days. Each mission is self-contained, and provides the Game Master with a complete adventure framework, printable player handouts (maps and enticing scraps of documentation), audio files to set the mood and provide clues, and a slew of deadly ideas to weave into each game session.
Although Near Death Experience scenarios have been crafted especially for Rapture, they can also be used as the basis for thrilling adventures in other sci-fi game settings. The perils may have new names, but the chills will remain the same!

Praise for Rapture: The End of Days

"This is the most clever, original setting concept I've seen since Day After Ragnarok. Someone really needs to make a film of this, right now."

- Greg Stanyer

"I like this book. It feels very much like a theological sci-fi horror, so it achieves everything it sets out to... The system for "Extras" is one of the most interesting ways I've seen to reward players for followers while making them both incredibly useful and expendable."

- Erathoniel Woodenbow (Featured Reviewer)

    StoryWeaver sets a high standard for small press RPG production. Their PDFs are easy to read, the art is great and they just look great. "Destiny's Children" comes in black and white with a colour cover. There's a few full page images in the book but [...]

    This is a great horror game with an original premise for campaign setting (post Rapture futuristic space travel). What impressed me most were the included aids for the game; an extras tracking sheet, dozens of extras (fleshed out enough to be playable) [...]

    Scanned image
    These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

    For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

    For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
    Original electronic format
    These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
