The Second Age of the Loresworn Order

Loresworn Games of the Year: Games We Didn’t Get To in 2017 (But Wish We Had)

It’s Loresworn Games of the Year Week! Today, we run through the games you won’t see on our Games of the Year list tomorrow… but we think probably would have made it if not for the fact that we just didn’t get around to them. 2017 had so many great games that slipped by it’s almost embarrassing, so the least we can do is give them a nod here. We hope to loop back around and tackle some of these next year.

The World of Apocalypse 1780: Introduction

Apocalypse 1780 is a post-apocalyptic, alternate history universe created by T.J. Hafer. It separates from our timeline in October of 1780, in the middle of the American Revolution, when the largest supervolcano eruption in human history takes place somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. The particulate material thrown into the atmosphere causes an unprecedented, brutal cooling period known as the 12-Year Winter. Combined with pandemic disease outbreaks and the breakdown of civilization, this climate change results in the deaths of more than 750 million of the Earth’s 800 million inhabitants.

Death By Paper Cuts

Five years.

Five years.

Five years since Ava had seen the ad in the paper. Five years since she’d written – and rewritten, and rewritten – her resume. Five years since she’d mustered the entirety of her hopes, her dreams, her ambitions to throw at this one job.

“Your first job is where it all starts,” her father had said to her once. “It’s gotta be at the right place. It’s gotta be under the right people. The first rung in the ladder. Get on it and start climbing.”

Best Games of 1998

We’re back with the eighth entry in our series on the best games of all time! Since Loresworn has only been around since 2015, but D.M. and T.J. have been having opinions about games much longer than that, we’re embarking on a journey through every year from 1980 to the present, listing our favorite games that came out each year. Every week we’ll be discussing a specific year, listing what we think are the five best games from that year. At the end of this saga, we will look over all the games from each year to create Top 25 Games of All Time lists for each of us, and a grand Top 100 Games of All Time to stand as Loresworn’s final word on the subject!
