Settings and Histories


These articles describe settings that have been created primarily to provide a context in which to set games, but also simply for the fun of creating them. These include descriptions of of people, places, events, and environments within the structure of the "official" universe provided by Ground Zero Games. These may also include ideas that have nothing to do whatsoever with the GZG universe. Ground Zero Games is quite explicit in stating that they provide a background for fun and to put their games in a context, but that they in no way require you the player to use their material. The rules themselves are not particularly setting-specific, so can be adapted to a wide variety of background source material.
