HE was a mutant with a gift for the guitar and an eye for the ladies...

SHE was a hotrod-racing bombshell on the lookout for love...

IT crawled from the wastes of Nashville crater, seeking human victims...

THEY were trapped in a world they never made!

All the cool cats dig '45 daddy-o, are you hip to the scene?

  • System - '45 uses the Xpress system, a dicepool system using d6's to determine task and combat resolution. Your natural talents - or abilities - as well as your learned skills affect your ability to complete a task. Skills can be tightened down using 'focus', a layered specialisation system that rewards specialisation. The version of the Xpress system presented here also allows for pulp style heroic action and more durable characters with self-created merits and flaws.

  • Presentation- '45 contains artwork by many regular contributors to Postmortem Studios' work, as well as a couple of new faces! One of our shiniest looking books to date.

  • Keynotes - A B-movie, psychobilly world of post-atomic wilderness, warring city states, hotrod themed battles on the roads of a ruined America and mutation, mutation, mutation.

  • Design Notes - The Xpress system is here refined and updated with better examples and suitable expansions to the rules for the B-movie world including 'Heroics' - game influencing opportunities for over-the-top action - and rules for more cannon-fodder enemies. These rules changes can be easily imported into other Xpress games.
