Posthuman - The Role Playing Game, Now Available!

You too can smash a supervillain with your enhanced fists. Do so early and often!

Do you like role playing games? Do you like superhero stories, and comics of all flavors? Do feel the compulsion to take supers-based action into your own hands and stage your own enhanced combat sequences and superhero stories? Good news, friends. POSTHUMAN is finally in print!

I’ve been working on this project not just on a hard burn the last decade, but in various forms going back to my tender youth as a gamer and artist. The Posthuman RPG is a flexible, easy to play supers-based game system, with everything you need to create amazing characters, utilize detailed powers and abilities, and hold campaigns with convenient, improv-heavy GM resources. The Rulebook covers the basics of the Posthuman Universe, as well as character generation with multiple formats, power descriptions, game mechanics, and GM tools as well as character sheets and sample characters. The Posthuman Sourcebooks are chockablock with original characters, each with detailed origins that dovetail to fill out the Posthuman Universe timeline as described in the Rulebook. Everything is connected.

Here’s a selection of pages from the Rulebook, giving you a taste of what to expect!

Many of our Friends of TRDL have helped make this a reality along the way, reviewing and talking about character designs and game mechanics, helping to compile data in earlier versions of the project, and offering support and enthusiasm for the TRDL Posthuman Universe on forums and share sites for years. Honored to have your help over the last several years!


Posthuman, along with the first two Sourcebooks, was soft-launched at Wondercon Anaheim 2019. each came with a sparkly cyber-unicorn. Subsequently, the following three books were launched at Rose City Comic Con 2019, with the full collection available for the first time. Still sparkly.

The Posthuman Role-Playing Game is an easy to play game system set in a detailed superhero setting. These complete rules utilize the Conflict Resolution System [CRS, pronounced CURSE], a simple attribute and combat based set of guides that can be used to resolve any number of combat scenarios with carrying degrees of complexity. This rulebook offers everything you need to start a campaign: including character generation, combat, and detailed powers descriptions, a comprehensive timeline of major events that shaped the course of history in the Posthuman Universe, and resources for the GM to aid in preparing for adventures, either improvised or carefully plotted out. The detailed origins of the characters found in the Posthuman Universe Sourcebooks, sold separately, provide interwoven, richly- developed backgrounds that build the story of the Posthuman world.

The books are available through a number of sources: On Amazon, through this site directly, and of course, best of all (I think) in person at one of my upcoming convention appearances. Currently the Rulebook and all five Sourcebooks are available and in stock!

The system will be revised and expanded on over time, so if you pick up copies, let me know how your gaming goes: fun experiences, recommended changes to the mechanics, anything goes! I love hearing from folks that use these characters in their games.

Posthuman Inner Circle: Remember, if you buy from me directly, either online or at shows, you will join the Posthuman Inner Circle, and will ALWAYS be eligible to receive PDFs of the most updated version of any book you buy!
