Era: Survival Kickstarter – Nihilists Source Book

Hi everyone!

The Era: Survival – Expansions into the Unknown Kickstarter [ ] has 2 weeks left to go, so don’t forget to check it out!

Today, I’m talking about the Nihilists Source Book.

The Nihilists are a group which firmly believe that Humanity on Gaia only exists as fodder for Infection. They would rather Humanity died out than Infection lived on the suffering of Humanity.

As a result, they will sabotage towns, usually in attacks which threaten large groups of people. Often, they will use an overdose of Injection to poison as many people as possible in the community they are targeting.

5 - Nihilists

While the Nihilists are an unpleasant group, they provide a new opportunity for players in Era: Survival. Many people enjoy having the possibility of a “traitor” within the group, which is trying to sabotage it. This is a theme that appears in a large number of Board Games, such as the Dead of Winter.

The Nihilists Source Book provides this opportunity within Era: Survival: players can secretly be part of the Nihilist movement and seeking to disrupt the party’s activities at every turn.

Of course, if they are discovered, the party is unlikely to treat them kindly…

Will You Survive?
