Hummel Quest

Player's Handbook

Created by

HUMMEL QUEST is a d10 based tabletop RPG system. It is set in a world of sentient war machines, where players take control of a tank character, form adventuring groups, and explore the post-apocalyptic Earth.   This system was designed from the basis of the Engine Heart system. I’ve made several changes and adjustments to adapt it to fit my world/setting of sentient war machines.   To learn about the world this system is set in, visit the Hummelverse codex.  
In a nutshell, the Hummelverse is a world like ours, but set in the near future after humanity destroyed itself in a nuclear war. Their autonomous AI war machines fought on, until they destroyed their own civilization in a second nuclear war. 80 years later, small groups roam the no-man’s-land in a constant struggle for bare survival, while clans fight over territory and resources.
