RPG Review: Predation by Monte Cook Games

Monte Cook Games were kind enough to send me a review PDF copy of the forthcoming Predation campaign setting for the Cypher system, written by Shanna Germain, it’s an excellent book that blends future-tech, survival in the ancient world and dinosaurs together into a coherent campaign. You can see my full review below:

  1. It has some resemblance to TERRA NOVA, a U.S. TV series that only ran one season: “Centers on the Shannons, an ordinary family from 2149 when the planet is dying who are transported back 85 million years to prehistoric Earth where they join Terra Nova, a colony of humans with a second chance to build a civilization.” –Internet Movie DataBase. Actually one of the issues in that series is that there is overpopulation, and the family committed the crime of having and concealing the existence of their third child, so they illicitly get a time-travel ticket to join the colony back in prehistory. Once they are there and integrate with the colony, no one much cares they got in by less than formal means. At the end of the first episode they notice the Moon is visibly closer to the Earth 85 million years ago, and the day would be shorter (the exact opposite of the setting in Monte Cook’s NUMENÉRA game where the day a billion years from now is 28 hours long and the Moon is further away than our present day).
