A Post-Apoclyptic Experience v2.png

Distemper is a post-apocalyptic experience that sets the intimate and collaborative tales told by a group of friends in a table top role-playing game (TTRPG) against the backdrop of the larger, more foundational and world-building narratives shown in the Distemper comic book series, published by Blood Moon Comics

Together, the game and comic book create a larger, crowd-sourced tapestry wherein players have a voice in how the fate of this broken, fractured new world unfolds, with the #DistemperVerse being the juncture where these stories intersect.

Set a year after a deadly virus transmitted by Man's Best Friend has wiped out almost everyone on the planet, Distemper shows a gritty, dark post-apocalyptic future. 

Polite society has gone and all the old rules went with it. There are no zombies, vampires, mutants or aliens, no sorcery, no fantastic creatures, and no dragons, just the gnawing cold, constant hunger and - perhaps most terrifying of all - other humans to contend with.

Pushed back to the population and technology levels of the 1800s, survivors will have to decide what they are prepared to do to get by in this new world where there are no rules or laws, no authority or justice, no help, no compassion, and where tracking their ammo and food is a must because everything of any value is running out.

From territorial militias to nascent warlords, from roving gangs of bandits to soulless cannibals who will snatch anyone they think they can overpower, this world has more than it's share of challenges for groups of 2-6 players to overcome.

Everything anyone knew has changed and people will have to do ugly things to survive. The players' morality will be constantly tested with ethical choices that may impact long-term game-play.


After all, when starvation is a very real prospect, people have to make some very interesting choices.
