Interview with Justin Oldham and A.C.: AFTER COLLAPSE

December 9th, 2019

This weekend I got to have a great interview with Justin Oldham a writer, gamer and RPG developer who has written A.C.: AFTER COLLAPSE a post-apocalyptic role-playing game set after civilization has come to a slow, bitter end.

"If your thinking of building a game, then do it!"

This Role-Playing game offers a detailed post-Collapse environment filled with opportunities for adventure and discovery. Player Characters, known as “Survivors,” cautiously explore through the dangerous ruins of once-great metropolises. A.C.: AFTER COLLAPSE uses a d20-based game mechanic, a classless character generation system and a Character Point (CP) system that rewards players when they complete scenario and campaign goals, allowing them to improve attributes and acquire new skills.


“A.C.: After Collapse is a post-apocalyptic tabletop RPG with a customizable D20 architecture that allows referees and players to experience this genre in as much or as little detail as they want. The game includes basic rules and individual source books that expand on a variety of topics. It is supported by a product line of novels and anthologies that use the power of fiction to provide a big backstory. There is something for everyone, no matter how much or how little experience they have with RPGs or this genre.”

I am an Arizona-based author with Midwestern roots. In addition to being a writer I have also designed Adventures Under the Laughing Moon—a tabletop role-playing game based on my fantasy series and set in the world of Mythren. This is a world I have been developing for more than twenty years with rich characters, compelling conflicts and a long history with many footprints in the sand. Over the years, this series has expanded to include novels, short stories, comic books, and original character and creature designs showcased at pop culture and comic conventions. I love the interactive and creative atmosphere of tabletop game play, and I thoroughly enjoy seeing these characters and creatures brought to life through photography and cosplay. My latest project is a tabletop RPG called Wheelhouse. This game offers both new and veteran players a glimpse into the apocalyptic future of the Laughing Moon world and provides a whole new context for storytelling and adventures.

Reckless Ambitions (The Medford Family Chronicles Book 1)
The beloved, highly respected, and automatically obeyed Palamaran Emperor John Cardillion III suddenly has died without naming a successor. He has four very powerful sons, An Arch Cleric, a Fighter, a Wizard and a Merchant Prince (aka thief), who are eager to slay each other and claim their father’s Ruby Throne. Earl Thomas Medford, the former Emperor’s best friend and Commander of the Imperial Guard, has to decide which royal brother to support for the throne and marry his deliciously gorgeous only daughter too. Earl Medford intends to either avert or win a bloody and vicious civil war.
Meanwhile Earl Medford’s daughter Christina has fallen hopelessly in love with one of the many Imperial Guard officers, Nick Armand. Christina and her best friend, Abigail Theosoar, do everything they can to hide this passionate romance. The not-so-simple Palace Gardener, Dr. Andrew Numil, who has his own agendas, discovers Christina’s secret and uses it to his advantage. Abigail Theosoar’s father, former gladiator and tavern owner Robert Theosoar, falls under a terrible curse with politics as the new Lord Mayor of the Palamaran Capitol.
Finally, Professor Oliver Wendell Enalan, a middle-aged Illusionist spellcaster from the Gamemasters University, finds new psionic abilities within himself as he falls in love with a beautiful Elven refugee Princess. The Gamemasters University, of which Professor Enalan is employed, is dedicated to searching the limitless multiverse for new and exciting games to play augmenting their magical powers. Will Enalan be able to defend the GMU mission and fulfill his destiny? Is the price of ultimate power bitter loveless loss? You shall judge in the end.

Come fly the wild skies with Wild Skies: Europa Tempest RPG and one of its main pilots Brandon Aten!

August 8th, 2017

Hi guys, joining me today is Brandon Aten publisher of Wild Skies, a story-driven, dieselpunk RPG of anthropomorphic animals, where sky pirates fight for survival over 1930's Europe!

"Europa Tempest is the first book to explore the world of Wild Skies. Its focus is Europe, where everyone is still reeling from the aftermath of the Great War, which never really ended. Instead, 1918 was the year revolutions on the homefront engulfed all of the major combatants. Nations fragmented and loyalties were confused. In the years since then four major nations have remade themselves from the chaos. England is now the center of the Hedge, a fully-militarized authoritarian state with the world's most powerful air navy. France remains divided between the fascists and republicans, both claiming to embody the French spirit. Germany is still ruled by the Kaiser and has built a ruthless land fighting force ready to flex its muscles. In Russia, the Bear Tsar officially rules from his flying palace but many act in his name advancing their own agendas. In between and on the margins mercenary companies and air pirates eke out a living."

- Wild Skies: Europa Tempest RPG
