Imagine a world of two dimensions and plane geometry, in which the very idea of height is considered insanity and the darkest heresy. Where the only thing that matters is the straightness of your sides and the regularity of your angles. Where the slightest deviation from the norm can lead to arrest, imprisonment, execution or a lingering death by starvation.
Welcome to Flatland. Enjoy your stay…
ROLE PLAYING GAME
BY MARCUS L ROWLAND
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL BY T. CRAIG DRAKE & MATTHEW HARTLEY
BASED ON AND INCLUDING
FLATLAND BY EDWIN A. ABBOTT
Action and adventure in a world where characters are supposed to be two-dimensional!
Whether your adventures take you to the criminal classes of The State and an encounter with legendary gang leader “Scarside” Al Gebra, across the border to Polygonia and an attempt to rescue Mad King Euclid, or into the glamorous world of politics and diplomacy with the multi-faceted polygons of the aristocracy, there’s something here for you. Best of all, by buying this game you’re supporting charity:
MÉDECINS SANS FRONTIÈRES (DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS)
THE ORIGINAL FLATLAND ROLE PLAYING GAME expands material originally published as part of the Forgotten Futures CD-ROM, completely rewritten and updated. It includes the novel, complete rules for the setting, three adventures and three adventure outlines, a complete wargame by Matthew Hartley (Tusk, Aeronef, etc.), full-colour cut out character figures, extensive background material, and much more. The PDF contains everything you’ll need to play, with the exception of six-sided dice and (optionally) playing cards and a chessboard for the wargame.
Only thing I should add is that Flatland in the title is the cloud logo as used in this user icon and on the title page of the book, amd that most of the text that's in capitals is actually small caps.
