Cubicle 7 Releases Graveyard Shift for Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Wrath & Glory for Free

Wrath & Glory: The Graveyard Shift

Spend your weekend with this free roleplaying game campaign for Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Wrath & Glory. Cubicle 7 has released “Graveyard Shift” for free from their site and on DriveThruRPG.

“Graveyard Shift” is a clandestine mission perfect for introducing players to the horrors of daily life (and death) in the 41st Millennium. Tasked by an Interrogator of the Inquisition to retrieve a dangerous xenotech artefact, the Agents explore a corpse starch production facility, encounter villainous Scum, and scour the dangerous wastes of the Boneyards before confronting the profane dangers of xenos technology.

This adventure can be played as an introduction to Wrath & Glory, or inserted into an ongoing campaign in the Gilead System. The choices the Agents make in the course of this adventure are almost guaranteed to have wider repercussions, as detailed in the Resolution.

Free League Publishing Announces a New Edition of the Classic RPG Twilight: 2000

Twilight: 2000

A new edition of the classic roleplaying game Twilight: 2000 was announced today by Free League Publishing, makers of the ALIEN RPG, in partnership with Game Designers’ Workshop and Amargosa Press. The new edition goes back to the roots of the franchise with a boxed set for sandbox roleplaying in the devastation of World War III. It will come to Kickstarter in August, to be released in early 2021.

The new edition of the apocalyptic RPG Twilight: 2000 will be the fourth in the series, the first being released by Game Designers’ Workshop in 1984. Just like the original version, the new edition is set in the year 2000 devastated by war – now in an alternate timeline where the Moscow Coup of 1991 succeeded, and the Soviet Union never collapsed. 

Also part of the project are Amargosa Press (who have recently announced the new Dark Conspiracy 4th Edition RPG), Polish RPG publisher Black Monk Games (who will act as a consultant on Poland in 2000 AD game setting as well as publish a Polish edition of the game), and Far Future Enterprises (who publishes the fifth edition of the Traveller science-fiction roleplaying game).

Twilight: 2000

The design team is led by Tomas Härenstam (ALIEN RPGForbidden Lands, Mutant: Year Zero), with setting and scenario writing by Chris Lites (Conan, Over the Edge), editing by Angus Abranson (Doctor Who, The One Ring), interior art by Niklas Brant (Forbidden Lands), cover art by Martin Grip (ALIEN RPGSymbaroum), and maps by Tobias Tranell (Forbidden Lands). Several active and retired servicemen from the U.S. military are assigned to the project as consultants.

Just like the original game, the new edition of Twilight: 2000 is set in a Poland devastated by war, but the game also offers an alternative Swedish setting, as well as tools for placing the game anywhere in the world.

In the game, players take roles of survivors in the aftermath of World War III – soldiers or civilians. Their goal, beyond surviving for another day, can be to find a way back home, to carve out their own fiefdom where they are, to find out more about the mysterious Operation Reset, and maybe, just maybe, make the world a little bit better again.

The core gameplay uses a “hexcrawling” system established in the post-apocalyptic Mutant: Year Zero and survival fantasy Forbidden Lands RPGs (both Silver ENnie winners for Best Rules, in 2015 and 2019), developing it further to fit the gritty world of Twilight: 2000. The core rules are built on the Year Zero Engine used in those games (as well as in the ALIEN RPG), but heavily adapted to fit Twilight: 2000 and its focus on gear and gritty realism.
