2400: Zone

No one knows what caused the Event. Alien visitors? Collision with another dimension? Whatever it was, it sundered an area on Earth from the laws of nature. And it left wonders behind. Whether you’re on an authorized expedition or breaking quarantine to make some credits, be careful out there: Come back not-quite-human, and the Lab will insist you visit indefinitely.

Zone is a super-slim, self-contained, lo-fi sci-fi RPG about exploring an scientifically impossible landscape on Earth. It’s inspired by Roadside Picnic and Annihilation, and built with the same rules as the free 24XX SRD. It’s 3 pages and a cover, fitting on two sides of a letter-sized page.

What is 2400? 2400 is lo-fi sci-fi. It’s centuries in the future, and it’s a decades-old modem that screams like a dying robot when it connects to the net. It’s a space ship with an FTL drive, artificial gravity, and a flickering display you gotta tap a few times to see the jump coordinates. It’s hacking something together with whatever cheap materials you have on hand, ignoring the rules until you need them, banging out something that might not sound finished, but definitely sounds fun. It’s a series of micro RPGs that might all be in the same setting, unless they aren’t.
