"Go now, Undying! Vanquish the Great Lords. Restore these cursed lands to the golden glory that was once shared by all, now in the clutches of a covetous few..."

Long ago, in the Age of Light, the Great Power held the world in check. As mortal men emerged, they admired the Great Power and coveted it for themselves. It was sundered, and pieces of it found its way into the souls of the greatest and most powerful of men, who became known as the Great Lords. 

That was thousands of years ago. Now, in the Age of Dark, with the Great Power scattered and diminished, the sun barely rises above the horizon before it sinks back into night. The very underworld itself has been lost to the all-devouring void, and mortal men cannot die as a result. Instead of using their shards of power to fix this broken world, the Great Lords instead have locked themselves in their castles and dungeons, clinging tightly to the source of what little power they have left.

No longer.

You and a few friends will make a stand to save this world from its corruption. As Undying, you will explore the Darklands, seek out the Great Lords, and put an end to the world's suffering. Gather the pieces of the Great Power, and claim the title of Dark Lord to usher in a new age for humanity.

  • 9 Playable starting classes with the freedom to build your character how you see fit from the outset

Thx for the game. I will read it soon. 

I was wondering if there is a way to have printable PDF?


Hey, thanks!

Unfortunately aside from what is currently up for download, I don't know if I'll be able to make a printable version. I am currently assessing whether to crowdfund a print run of the game, but for right now it's strictly digital. Sorry! That may change in the future depending on how things go.

Hello! Congratulations! Apotheosis is a really excellent TRPG. I modified the color of the file so that the sheet was white and the text black. Unfortunately this compromised the quality of the art. If the author allows me I would like to share the modified file here
