Harsh Generation is a post-apocalyptic storytelling game inspired by a cyberpunk and deiselpunk aesthetic and by rulesets like Powered by the Apocalypse and Fate Core. 

The goal is a dynamic, self-generating system that allows for on-the-fly scenario creation and ever-evolving plot to be crafted by those playing. Ideally you shouldn't have to do any preparation to play Harsh other than have the materials printed out - although it is conducive to prepared campaign play as well.

Some themes you will encounter within the lore:

  • Far-future American theocracy and the struggle between using your gods for good or for evil.
  • Body modification through the use of cybernetics, genetic splicing, or extreme gadgetry.
  • Weighing the needs of your community and companions with the expectations of the gods you follow.
  • Somewhat over-the-top, occasionally-zany scenarios that require a mix of street smarts, your mods, and collaboration to survive.

Harsh was developed as an inclusive experience and contains no real-world racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, or other problematic or commonly-triggering narratives. The world of Delphia may not be a particularly nice one, but the flavor of that conflict is up to the people playing the game.
