Gradient Descent + PDF

Gradient Descent is a sci-fi horror megadungeon set in an abandoned android factory controlled by a powerful rogue AI known as "MONARCH." Built from the ground up for the ENnie Award Winning MOTHERSHIP RPG.

 Includes:

  • The CLOUDBANK Synthetics Production Facility, AKA "The Deep," a 12 level, 200+ room megadungeon. Clean layout with an eye towards usability at the table, the Deep is one of the easiest to reference and run megadungeons on the market.
  • The Bell, a small scavenged camp orbitting the Deep, where your players can rest and recuperate from adventuring. Contains a small crew of NPCs with their own unique rumors and agendas. 
  • A d100 table of powerful Artifacts created by Monarch, each with their own unique effects and potential hazards.
  • Campaign ready! A section on Fallout gives guidance on the potential short and long term consequences your players may face as a result of their actions in The Deep.
  • One shot accessible: Quick tips and tables make it easy to run a 1-3 hour "dive" into The Deep for a single night's play.
  • Supports different playstyles: Everything in the Deep wants something and can be reckoned or bartered or negotiated with. Great for Faction play, social roleplayers, or players who just want a difficult series of combat encounters.
  • A unique new condition called "The Bends" that will have your players questioning whether they are human.

This adventure is suitable for characters of any level in a survival horror setting and is sure to pose a challenge to even the most battle hardened party.

        COMBINING ORDERS  

        Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 

        WE DO NOT HOLD ITEMS

        Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 

        PRE-ORDERED ITEMS

        Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

        All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

        We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

        Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
