Posthegemony: Terra Nomenklatura (by Jason Walters) is a unique science fiction setting designed to evoke the mood of films such as Logan’s Run, The Island, and Idiocracy. Using a decision chart and guided by the game master, the players construct a spaceship and escape from the Posthegemony, a futuristic worldwide society loosely based on Chinese utopian ideals.
Interpersonal relationships and collective storytelling play a large part in Posthegemony. The player characters (known as “Interesting Persons”) must describe how they meet one another, how they acquire and assemble the parts of their spacecraft, and how they protect one another from “ReEducation” while they do it. They can also “fill in the blanks” of Posthegemony society as they see fit, describing where their characters live, what their particular city is like, and how the peculiar psychological problems inherent in urban living have effected them.
Posthegemony: Terra Nomenklatura is a setting for Star Hero 6th Edition, a genre book for the HERO System 6th Edition. The zip file includes the PDF, cover images, a decision chart, a posting about the book from the IPR Blog, and versions of the setting novelette A Remembrance Of Her in PDF, Word, Sony, and PALM OS formats.
