Very few information for the setting and mechanics do nothing to transmit the idea of your character becoming a god with a certain domain. instead they feel like generic buffs. For me it's the first let down of the Cypher System...

A well done product, but like so many other Monte cook Games since the release of Numanera and the Strange, very few new original foci or backgrounds are introduced, and the new character types are simply slightly re-hashed versions of the ones already availible in the cypher system, it even says so in the book. I feel like that was exceptionally lazy and didnt do anything you as a player couldnt already to make a "demi-god" character.

The material for making characters just keep getting recycled into their new products and this is no exception. However instead of blatently plugging olf foci into the book like has been don before and changing the name of a few, looking at you Cypher system the book offers suggestions on how to use, you guessed it, foci from other books, namely The Cypher system, whos foci list is simply a compilation of foci from the numenera and the strange, in this setting.

Really what this amounts to is a setting book, so if your looking for tips on how to play demi gods in a unique setting here you go. If your looking for a list of cool new godly foci and backgrounds, preapre to be disapointed.

However, dont let this dissuade you, it is a well done product and worth adding to the collection if only for the setting lore alone. If we could get so

Wonderful world and history but have to agree with an earlier review. This game feels more like a fantasy superhero setting than divine being setting. One major complaint is that they added the element of dominion (part of reality that god oversees) and then apparently ignore it. It becomes flavour text with the only dominion powers listed are generic powers tied to worship. I think it was a missed opportunity here to really make Dominions explode.

Otherwise I love the world they created here, I'm contemplating using it with the Godbound ruleset.

Fantastic new product from the Monte team.

Afterworld is a dark setting with a populous at the very bottom of a big pit of despair and social degradation but in the emerging 'New Gods' and the Seven Prophecies you have a spark that to me allows for a campaign of true heroism and hope. The vibe I got was very much like the superhero comics of my youth filled with characters (the PC's) who are larger than life and shining beacons of hope and heroism. Not that I can't imagine a darker toned game, God of Evil anyone?

Mechanically you have a system that I feel is more fantasy superhero than gods and I'm not entirely sure how the deeds ascribed to the old gods were accomplished but that small criticism is really no criticism at all as the characters you get to play have plenty of scope for amazing deeds and fantastic adventures very reminiscent of the legends of Greece.

I'd definitely recommend picking this game up and I only hope the line gets continued support.
