Enter a world in which the great apes dominate the evolutionary ladder. Players are returning astronauts who land on what they initially think must be an alien planet.
Inspired by the movies Planet of the Apes (1968) and Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970), the Planet of the Apes (1974) television series and the animated series Return to the Planet of the Apes (1975).
Note: This is the free no-art version. The POD version is coming soon for $4.97.
Welcome to a world ruled by cruel apes, bent on the subjugation of humanity! Begin creating a character by copying the character record sheet from the back of this book, or printing the sheet provided on the Apes Victorious website. Next, roll 3d6 for each of the abilities that are described below. Record these numbers on the character sheet, along with any modifiers they provide. At the AM’s discretion, a player may roll six sets of numbers and assign a set to desired abilities to match requirements for particular classes or races. The unused sets may be used for additional PCs operated by the same player, at the referee’s discretion.
After rolling abilities you will choose the class of your character, which could be an astronaut, underdweller, or one of several types of apes. These must be chosen in consultation with the Ape Master, since some may be inappropriate for the type of campaign he is running.
