Should this really be the “Aftermath” “playground,” considering that the dictat is that we don't do nouns very well at all?

Water. Earth. Sun. Sky. Long ago, the four sectors lived together in harmony. Then everything changed when the Fire Cult attacked.
Only the Serpenty, master of all four Aspects, could stop them. But when the world needed her most, she vanished.

Incorrect Quotes

GUINEVERE: Listen to me, everyone. Please. I'm known for monologues that sum things up at the end of session. I'm Minister for Transport, which means I'm a good person. Let's not surrender to our basest instincts. I know times are tough, but I'm sure if we band together and really concentrate on the problem at hand, we can, as a group of friends- [Screams as NONEAPPLE sets her alight.]
NONEAPPLE: The rule of man is over; now begins the rule of fire. I will no longer be shackled by the civilized society of the forgotten times. This is Monument, and the only law here is flame! The fire wants not for justice. The fire wants not for reason. The fire desires only to be fed!

CIT: I'm so sorry, Guinevere, but the tide has turned and I side with the fire now.

MOONLIGHT: For your crimes against fashion, I sentence you to die.

Rampant speculation

A place to speculate wildly about what is actually going on…

  • You are actually one of the tomatoes 5)
  • Cameron couldn't be bothered to write a setting and the GM team are just making up backstory as they go along.
    • This is more plausible than literally anything else I've heard
    • Cameron here- I thought I confirmed this was what's happening ages ago. Why is there still confusion about this?
  • Everyone is Jesus in purgatory.
  • It's actually a sequel to another society game.
    • Duh, your job is just to figure out which ones.
    • So my headcanon is this: The Redemption prison collided with Tempest version of Earth and all the stories going rampant caused everyone to loose their memories. We're all either playing the descendants of our characters from those games or you're someone who spontaneously came in to being during the disaster.
    • That or this is Memento Mundi and Frederick Dines actually succeeded in the second Upheaval.
    • That or its a sequel to Grand Conclave.
    • Shit… No, it actually takes place during Instrumentality.
    • This is a prequel to Paradiso, and the various weather-related disasters are just to encourage us to make domes.
  • The apocalypse was caused by an excess of superstition and nature-worship. Repent!
  • We are badly programmed NPCs in a video game, and the console was turned on 2 months ago. The main character is out there, somewhere.
    • What do you mean badly programmed?
    • A mixture of The Truman Show and Battle Royale.


Has anyone else been finding the Colourblind quirk hard to remember? I have already repeatedly referred to seeing the colours of things, and it's only turn 1.

  • Considered pointing out that the clothes of a group of Children sort of matched the elements in colour when they were discussing who could have each element as their favourite.
  • Called the sunlight at the start of the week “eerie” (sort of mixed IC/OC anyway)
  • commented on the colour of my mystery box item.

I've been finding it hard to not have the Quirk when I'm OC colourblind…

In Case You Were Wondering What That Final Love Song Was

Rock or Fabric?


  • Stars
    • I know it's a bit vaguely defined but aren't (non-degenerate) stars sort of soft, being made of gas?
      • Poke one and find out, heretic 😛.
  • Metal
  • Sandstone
  • Asteroids
  • Some food
  • Cave serpent/ underground angel
  • AI puppets (a rocky core swathed in a meaty fabric body)
  • Atoms
  • Nuclear reactors


  • Sand
  • Some food
  • Deities (that aren't stars)
  • Water
  • Sky Serpent/Angel

Are you with 🌑Team Rock🌑 or 📜Team Fabric📜? Please tally your results below, and no cheating/inventing some weird third category! All things in the universe are one or the other!

  • Do you mean is your character rock or fabric, or which do you believe sand is?

🌑: II

📜: I

… Sand is definitely tiny rocks

Ooh! Ooh! What about ashes? Asking for a friend. :Hmm. I think if sand is disputable, ashes /in themselves/ are fairly rocky; but it's in a kinda liminal state between the two, especially because charcoal is definitely rock, and clear indication of the deep-seated rockiness of all organic matter.🖤

  • But fabric is generally organic matter. Surely the purest state of one element couldn't have deep-seated aspects of its opposite.
    • That reminds me: which is asbestos fabric? There are clear arguments for it being both.

Mashing the Refresh Button Squad, Roll Call!

  • Here!
  • I'm currently feeling more inclined to mash the refresh button on the Skills page to see the new Expert skills when they become available.
  • The more you refresh the faster it comes out right?

Special Bureaucrat-Neutral News Section For Good Citizens

  • So, I hear there was this totally sweet Unity Festival organised by the Minister for Culture.

Special Aftermath Vocabulary

Since our memories started functioning again, we can recall words we've passed around amongst ourselves. We probably remembered them correctly: we just have this feeling. And hey, even if they aren't exactly the same as the words from Before, we're using them now, right? So, let's list our favourite Aftermath words that our characters just know they're using correctly…

  • Tortoise: To extract information from someone against their will, using incentives such as stopping the pain if they talk. Example: “Please stop tortoising me! PLEASE!”
  • Zebra: A stupid creature that moves slowly around, looking to harm others. After death, some people turn into these. Also known as a shambler or an STI. Example: “Aaaaaaargh the zebras are coming this way aaaaAAAAARGH HELP!” Derivative: Superzebra, a stronger, faster, more agile and more terrifying zebra.
  • Cannonball: A person that eats other people. Example: “Fuck it's a cannonball, if they catch me they'll eat me!”
  • Land mime: An object that you put on the floor and explodes when weight is put on it. Example: “We're putting land mimes down for the superzebras.”
  • Morse codd: A system of dots and dashes used to communicate. Example: “They're using lights to flash Morse codd.”
  • Colt: A sinister gathering of people. Example: “Pastel has started a Death Colt.
  • Cult: A four-legged animal. Example: “A cult has roofs on its feet.”
  • Parsley: A meeting to discuss peaceful resolution of conflict. Example: “Let's hold a parsley and hope nobody shoots anybody else.”
  • JuneDay: We just don't know.
