“[The Midderlands] as a small area campaign supplement is the best I’ve ever seen, displacing Dave Arneson’s Blackmoor First Fantasy Campaign area, which up until now -- and that’s decades -- has been my favorite one.” - Matt Finch (Creator of Swords & Wizardry).What is going to be in the new 'The Midderlands Expanded' book?
A Gonzo Post-Apocalyptic Campaign Setting and Sourcebook based on the articles of Crawling Under a Broken Moon

- New piecemeal armor system that incorporates damage resistance, ablatives, and armor degradation
- An extensive, revised mutation system usable by all characters and creatures
- An expanded vehicular creation and combat system for all of your petrolhead needs
- A pantheon of Umerican Gods and Patrons, old and new
- A comprehensive section on the Citadel of Scrap, a good campaign starting point for exploring Umerica

Our design goals were simple: make a game that's mechanically compatible with OSR retroclones (and their mountains of content) while leveraging the compact but non-binary PbtA system.So yeah, intriguing.
- A single PbtA "move" core: 2d6 + mod, tiered results
- Player-generated character traits instead of predefined playbooks or attributes
- High character lethality
- Strong GM authority
