    Imperial Year – 1125

    Civil War has destroyed what was once whole. Where once a single Emperor ruled over
    an 11,000 world Imperium, there are thousands of worlds hanging on to one another by
    the slenderest of threads. Gone are the massive trade mains where Imperial Fleets
    protected enormous freighters and liners. Communications throughout Charted space
    has collapsed.

    Warlords, Pirates, Free Traders and Refugees struggle to survive among the ruins of the
    Third Imperium. The Hard Times have just begun and a band of Travellers find
    themselves on a world in the heart of Wasteland Space.

Participants include one referee and one or more players. The referee prepares and presents the adventure material, including circumstances, challenges, quests, and mysteries faced, and the players create player characters (PCs), including fighters, magicians, clerics, and thieves.

    The heroes of an AS&SH game delve dungeons filled with horrifying monsters, lethal traps, and bewildering puzzles; they explore savage wilderness frontiers and hostile borderlands; they probe ancient ruins and investigate cursed tombs; they match steel against sorcery, and sorcery against steel; and they plunder for gold, gems, and magical treasure in a decaying world inhabited by bloodthirsty monsters and weird, alien beings.

    Campaign Description

    Mission Report 1947-07-21
    Southern Italy

    After the joint Allied operations in Denmark, and the successful capture of Dr. Kerbel and the new German heavy walker, the Allies look to the South to help reinforce their foothold in Italy. The Axis powers know they need to regain control to ensure success in Europe — Germany can’t afford to fight a three-front war. The Germans know that the Allies are apprehensive about their relationship with southern Italy, and they plan to exploit it as quickly as possible.

    Germany plans to destabilize Allied control in Italy by launching a seaborne and airborne offensive along the Southern Coast. The Allies are preparing to build defenses along the coast to make sure their new ally has the proper emplacements ready to prevent invasions.

    The Germans stage their seaborne invasion from Greece and Yugoslavia. The plan is to launch an all-out offensive with as much Rift tech as possible to show the Italians the power that the Axis have, and hand the Allies a major defeat. They believe it will swing the South into siding with Germany and regaining control of Europe.

    The Allies are caught off-guard by the attack, as they are in mid-preparations of reinforcing the beachhead. Their main focus has been to secure the new border between Northern Italy and Southern Italy to make a push north. The Airborne invasion is all predicated on the success of the beach landing.


    Konflikt 47 is a post-WWII miniature game that uses regular foot soldiers AND sci-fi-related troops (like werewolves, zombies, etc). This group meets once every other month for a large-scale game. Participationg is open to all. If you have questions about this gaming group or game days, contact Joe at the store (916) 693-6604.

    SFS 1-17: Reclaiming the Time-Lost Tear

    Character levels 5-8
    Written by Larry Wilhelm

    One final task remains before the First Seeker can realize her ongoing mission of returning to the Scoured Stars: recovering the key that can lower its shields. She has identified the key’s location and assembled a team, yet the key rests on a barren moon in a dangerous complex filled with ancient traps from a technologically advanced alien species intent on keeping their relics protected against invaders. The PCs must brave the depths of this perilous repository, retrieve the key, and unlock the Society’s means of returning to the Scoured Stars.

    Content in Reclaiming the Time-Lost Tear also contributes to the ongoing goals of the Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsebo) faction. Content in this scenario also contributes to the ongoing year of the Scoured Stars storyline.

    Released June 2018.
