After the End was specifically designed to be able to accommodate Reign of Steel campaigns.

Only one AtE book has been published so far, but this thread is about its relationship with Reign of Steel. Post #4 has PK's statement that he had RoS in mind when writing AtE.

GURPS After the End thus far has one book and one Pyramid issue. I think Book 2 (Book 1 being the character-building guide, Book 2 being the campaign-building one) will probably be the most conducive toward making a Reign of Steel campaign, although it's certainly possible a specific Robot Apocalypse (or similar) book will eventually be released as part of the line.

Not the book series, the GURPS supplement.

HAPPY ROBOTIC ANNIVERSARY final war and spring equinox!!!
 
Default HAPPY GURPS REIGN OF STEEL SPRING EQUINOX FINAL WAR!!!!!!

In the spring of 2034 the first exterminator robots emerged from the citadels of the AIs. Their priority targets were those military bases and government enclaves that were not already under AI control, as well as nations such as New Zealand and Switzerland that had survived reasonably intact and resisted AI infiltration. The early exterminators were copies of warbots, security robots and cybertanks developed by the United States, Europe, Brazil, Korea, China and Japan. Later models became more sophisticated as they successively isolated, besieged and destroyed surviving pockets of human civilization.

Tne Final War raged for four years of fierce fighting, but the issue was never in doubt. The AIs had infiltrated much of humanity's military command structure, including strategic forces and space weaponry. Weakened by plague and revolution, shattered by orbital bombardment and, in the case of Africa, by nuclear weapons, humanity's enclaves fell one by one.

Death stalked the world, but did not visit every nation in equal measure. In regions such as Africa, the Philippines and Central America, the victorious machines slaughtered without quarter. Elsewhere, they herded surrendering humans into concentration camps. In the British Isles, the robots ignored those who did not resist. And on the East Coast of North America, armed robots came accompanied by human soldiers, bearing food and medicines, and the news that a provisional United States government had been reestablished: the crisis was over, and reconstruction could now begin...

Organized fighting more or less ceased late in 2037, with the destruction of the last remnants of the world's national armies. Scattered guerrilla resistance continues to this day, but the Final War had effectively ended, and humanity was defeated.

The Reign of Steel had begun!

droid17, I mean it as a sincere compliment when I say that I don't think I know anybody who is as dark and as amusing as you are at the same time.

Have some (possibly NSFW) funny apocalypse theme music, everybody.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO ROS WILL TO LIVE E-BOOK TODAY ON 2011!!!!
 
Written by David L. Pulver / Roger Burton West.

Fatal Error: (A)void / (R)ebel / (F)lee?

For millennia, humanity has mastered tools to further its goals. But what if technology became the master? Imagine a world where robots rule a tomorrow where imagination is outlawed.

Completely new fiction by setting mastermind David L. Pulver.

With this update and the original Reign of Steel setting, you have everything you need to play in that science-fiction world. Or, used alone, it provides an invaluable source of Fourth Edition robot templates and characters that you'll enjoy as long as you live . . . or, perhaps, until you're rebooted.
