Ghost Lines by TazioBettin Ghost Lines by TazioBettin
A post-apocalyptic victorian dark fantasy steampunk roleplaying game where characters in leather suits and gas masks fight ghosts on electric railroads using harpoons and leviathan's lightning-oil?

There's an explanation for how such an awesome idea can exist! It's John Harper's Ghost Lines, an rpg based on the Apocalypse system of Apocalypse World. It's just in 4 sheets and can be downloaded from his blog here [link]
Acquaintance with the system of AW is recommended.

In this picture I used photos of gas masks by Bob Basset [link] check his lair because it's impossibly awesome!

EDIT: now in Creative Commons

EDIT 2: now it's three of them! We played today with my friends and it was awesome! Yes he's Michael Clarke Duncan, who doesn't have a fond memory of him?

Mind the share-alike clause!

Ghost Lines is awesome, and so is this. I love that you geek out on some of the same RPG stuff as I do (GL, Apocalypse World, Exalted... and admittedly I bought Anima Prime because of your artwork).

I wish he damn finished that Ghost Line. I tried it once, but it's like most of Harper's creations: enough to be very interesting and make you want to play it, but unfinished enough to make it unplayable without heavy tweaking... I don't ask that a game be detailed and complete like, say, my beloved Burning Wheel, but at least have enough rules to make me figure what's supposed to happen in a fight with a ghost, considering it's the pivotal point of a mission in GL, would have been appreciated. And that game has been sitting in his blog unfinished for... years, I think? Heh.

Great job!
Those kind of illustrations are really inspiring. I read John Harper's rpgs. I played Lady Blackbird. And it's awesome.
Hope i'll play this one.
