Dark Continent is a roleplaying game of African adventure and exploration set in the age of colonialism. Players can take the role of Victorian adventurers emulating the real-life exploits of Burton, Livingstone and Stanley or the literary fictions of Edward Rice Burroughs, Henry Rice Haggard and Joseph Conrad.
This box set is a complete game in itself, with all the rules and setting information needed to create characters and expeditions and send them into the unknown. It contains two guides for players and gamemasters, a booklet with information on Zanzibar,and two blank maps for the players to charter the course of their adventures into Darkest Africa.
Now I've had the game since well, 2000 & haven't done a thing with it. After an abortive Call of Cthulhu campaign. It sat until I was sick over the weekend. So lets unbox this sucker & see whats in it!
If you need more Empire Of The Petal Throne grab your Book of Ebon Bindings & add a planar demon god with deep jungle temple.
Lots of historical detail but with pulpy overtones where needed, magic or no magic as options depending on how historical you want it, exploration, adventure, it's all here
Do I think its worth the $50.00 price tag? Hmm for a box set with others coming out today at 40.00 & up? Tough call really?
Apparently the game is no longer available :(
