Contamination Europe - A Post-Apocalyptic Role Playing Game

Contamination Europe is a classic-style Role Playing Game set in a post-apocalyptic future. If you have no more use for Elves, Dwarves or Heroes, you have come to the right place.

Brief Summary
In 2065 a worldwide nuclear war destroyed human civilization and killed nearly everyone and everything on Earth. The few who survived the war formed new factions and communities in the remnants of destroyed cities. As time passes, new species emerges, mutated by radiation. Eighty-nine years later the world is still a rotting graveyard, but a few survivors fight to see the next day.

Contamination Europe is set in 2154 in a post-apocalyptic Germany. Prior to the nuclear war, the Germans fought the Russian army in yearlong bloody trench warfare for the last coal deposits in Eastern Germany. Because of the general shortage of raw materials, hardly any motorized units were deployed. Whole armies of tanks and airplanes were useless. The war was an infantry war similar to the First World War. Eventually the Russian army used biological and chemical weapons to break through the frontlines, but this attempt failed. Still, the use of B and C weapons continued for some years. Even after the nuclear war, wide areas are still contaminated with deadly viruses and chemical gases. These regions are now known as the "Toxic Fields".

In the years after the bombs, several new factions rose. The Wasteland Tribes, the Bandit Clans, the Trade Union, the Panzer League and others had arisen from the nuclear ashes to pursue their own goals.

The player characters are wasteland dwellers who explore the deadly wasteland for equipment and food. Depending on their actions, they will earn or lose reputation to the various factions. They may play as the good guys or the bad guys.

Players can also find or buy their own home base and equip it with various facilities such as water filter, furniture, power plants, automated guns, minefields or a howitzer.

I've run the introductory scenario from this game for a group of players and we enjoyed it and the group have said they will be happy for me to run more adventures in the future based on this system. That is a big plus for the game, as is the fact tha [...]

The author did indeed rectify the editing issues and I have upgraded my rating to five stars. I'll leave the original review below, but I feel the presentation is 100% better. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I love Post Apocalyptic genre stories, games, movies [...]

Original electronic
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.
