Somewhere in Uyrupe, after the War. Not one of the places people won or lost the War - one of the places it was fought. Guns proliferate like the pox. Partisan bands refuse to stand down.

The Country is a game by Luke Gearing, posted on his website. It's a poignant and brutal game about violence and the aftermath of war. 

I became obsessed with it. I took it upon myself to lay it out so I could print it, entirely without his permission. He has kindly given me permission to share it here. 

All of the art is public domain. Much of it, including the cover, is by Paul Nash.

All proceeds will be going towards The Rock Trust, a local youth homelessness charity.

How many players are recommended for this game? Is GM optional?

So, if you roll a character that died in the War, is that a Traveller-style "make a new character" or something undead?


Really strong system and excellent setting for scenarios. Would recommend!
