In Carapace, your ancestors isolated themselves in the Caves to seek protection from the awakened Marble-Titans a long time ago. Now, a major crisis has struck, and the cave-dwellers must rediscover the Outside  in order to survive.

Players control Marble-Seekers; bug outcasts with almost no other options in life. Their goal is to  gather Marble from the Outside and pay for the Cannon they ordered. 

Once it's ready, they'll be able to tackle the Titans and either emmerge victors, showered in titles and glory... or die trying.

In this book you will find:

  • Rules for creating Marble-seekers, complete with Birthsigns and their Down-bringing from a Previous Moult.
  • A system of Rules needed to get a game going based on Into the Odd and Electric Bastionland.
  • A Freeform magic system with effects ruled by the mighty Titan Shards.
  • A Hexcrawl procedure complete with an Encounter Table that fits any Carapace adventure.
  • Creatures from the Outside.
  • An epic and fun Drop Die Table procedure to blast away Marble Titans with the powerful Cannon.
  • A sample Hexcrawl of Pluto's Domain, a death themed adventure.

The rules of Carapace are a hack of Into the Odd and Electric Bastionland, by Chris Mcdowall.
