I’m pleased to announce that Insurgent Earth is finally done.
Insurgent Earth is a tabletop war game in which players take the role of survivors in the chaotic days following a massive invasion of Earth by an advanced alien civilization.
In Insurgent Earth, the players are not Generals or Admirals, Presidents or Prime Ministers, they’re ordinary citizens; Police and Paramedics, Computer Programmers and Mechanics, Nurses, Firefighters, and Teachers – regular people who saw alien ships descend into their skies, watched war machines stride down their streets, stared in horror as entire cities were devastated and strange structures rose from the rubble.
Sure, some are reservists with military training or veterans with combat experience – but no one has super powers or a genius-level IQ. They’re not elite spec-ops ninjas or suave secret agents. These are normal people who have spent the last few weeks evading alien patrols, scrounging supplies, and staying out of the relocation camps. They are survivors in a world where everything has changed and nothing will ever be “normal” again.
Most important, they’re people who are tired of hiding in fear and living on scraps. Determined to do something, anything to fight back, they have decided to become militia, partisans, guerillas, freedom fighters… insurgents on their own planet.
This is the world they live in and these are the characters you and your friends are invited to join.
Built on the same core rule system as the Exploit Zero and Nightwatch games, Insurgent Earth is specifically designed for Solo/Cooperative effort.
Perhaps your group will salvage enough weapons and materials to stop the alien’s ‘Sweep and Seize’ operations in your town. Maybe they’ll learn a few things and take down one of the invaders’ supply ships or liberate prisoners from one of the camps in the newly designated ‘Occupied Zones.’
Maybe, just maybe, your little band of misfits will live long enough to cause so much trouble for the alien occupation that you gain a reputation as a real threat, not just a nuisance. Maybe then the alien overlords will put a bounty on your heads or deploy special units to hunt you down. But by then, perhaps the Global Resistance Network will offer you a chance to do some real damage.
However this plays out, your fight is going to take blood, sweat, tears, and a lot of luck.
If that sounds interesting, this might be the game for you.
Insurgent Earth is currently available at WargameVault in PDF.
Print version coming soon at Amazon.
Thank you, now go liberate the planet. Good hunting.
