Ashes to Ashes is a dark fantasy setting where wizards deliberately broke the world around a century Ago. The remnants of a mighty, high fantasy civilization litter the world, but civilization is no longer great. It's now a world of poverty, low magic and scarce resources, where people struggle to survive. This setting casts the players as mavericks in a fantasy world that is losing a war it does not even know that it is fighting. Hidden demons and their mortal minions, many of whom do not even know who their masters truly are, manipulate events from the shadows, experimenting with social control mechanisms to steer the human cattle in the direction that they want them to go. The adventurers' goal is to discover and stop them. Ashes to Ashes is a role-playing-heavy, philosophy-heavy, conflict-heavy type of game that would be best enjoyed by serious-minded folk. Ashes to Ashes must, if run correctly, continually force the players to face moral dilemmas. Two introductory scenarios have been included. By Jeff Moeller. 180 pages. Published by Chaosium June 2008. Supplement for this setting: Dust to Dust
