Outworld 2114AD a free campaign setting book for USEME by Vic Dobson

Written by wargamer Vic Dobson we are proud to present to you for free download a thirty four page book called Outworld 2114AD War in the Darkness.  This is a campaign setting for USEME particularly for UM001 15mm Science Fiction and UM006 Starship Battles.  It contains many things including an introduction, setting, special rules, starship design and lots of scenarios.  It can be played with any of your suitable miniatures including those from the HOF and Laserburn ranges for the ground action.  Go HERE for the free book plus the USEME Range of titles as paid for downloads.


One of my fondest creations as a humble creator of wargaming content and books is USEME.  The 'Ultra Simple Engine for Miniature Engagements' system has a dozen titles to its name and in print and download has been all over the world with eight thousand copies sold since first release.  I have played and seen played games with USEME from five 15mm figures a side to five hundred at conventions.  Science Fiction, Fantasy, Historical, Starships, Zombies and more and all really easy plus without a setting you can fit them to your own wants.  Author of USEME Gavin Syme (GBS)
