The Menace From Beyond - Ubiquity

A new company is creating a new game using the Ubiquity RPG system. Siege Tower Games debuts The Menace From Beyond features terrors from the 1950's monster movies with new rules for the game.

Siege Tower Games is proud to announce our first game: The Menace From Beyond!
The Menace From Beyond RPG is inspired by the classic monster movies of the 1950s. It’s got giant ants, radioactive mutants, alien invaders, and sinister communists all plotting to take down the United States and all it stands for! The only thing that can prevent the menace from taking over is your rag-tag group of investigators and citizens whose only advantage is that you’re aware of the threat while others live in denial.
Can you convince the unsuspecting populace to wake up to the danger? Can you survive the onslaught of science and nature run amok? You’ll have to play it to find out!
The Menace From Beyond RPG is powered by the Ubiquity Roleplaying system that brought you Hollow Earth Expedition and so many other great games.
But The Menace From Beyond RPG is more than just a new setting: It will include new mechanics that will be simple and intuitive while at the same allowing you to bring to life the dangers of the survival horror genre and the paranoia-drenched atmosphere of the 50s.
In just a few weeks, you will get to sample The Menace From Beyond RPG for free by downloading a playtest kit from right here on SiegeTowerGames.com. You’ll get to see sample characters, play through several adventures, start exploring the setting and its inhabitants, and kick the tires of the new twists to the rules.
As an early adopter, you’ll even have the chance to give us feedback and get your name in the credits of this book.
Stay tuned, and… Beware!
The Menace from Beyond is coming soon!
