The Fifth World explores a neotribal, ecotopian, post-apocalyptic, animist realist, mundane science fiction future inspired by visions of rewilding, decolonization, and permaculture. Games provide one avenue for exploring this world.
In The Fifth World roleplaying game, you and 2-5 of your friends take on the roles of people living in a neotribal, ecotopian future. Together, you’ll uncover a story about their lives — about their ambitions, their hopes, their troubles, and above all, about the web of kinship that binds them together. How will they balance the conflicting demands of the people they love and respect? What kind of person will they choose to become? What kind of world will they leave for their own descendants?
