Judge Dredd - The Cursed Earth

Whilst the brand new Judge Dredd: I Am The Law skirmish game was my birthday present for myself this new supplement, The Cursed Earth for the Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD role-playing game by EN Publishing is my Christmas present for myself. Written by John White, this supplement runs to 160 pages.

The Cursed Earth is a vast, radioactive wasteland filled with mutants, outlaws, and more. Whether you're undertaking a desperate raid outside the borders of Mega-City One, or you're a Mutant trying to eke out a life in the blasted wasteland, the Cursed Earth provides endless opportunities for adventure.
Within you'll find 10 new mutant species including the Alabammy Blimp, Brotherhood of Darkness, Dog Soldier, Gila Munja, Kentucky Trog and more, plus expanded mutation tables which include animal mutations, corporeal mutations, and metaphysical mutations. You'll also find a wide range of new mutant careers, equipment, a gazetteer, and a full adventure which takes you on an epic trek across the Cursed Earth as you desperately try to deliver a vital antidote to Mega-City Two!
An essential book for those playing mutant characters or those venturing out into The Cursed Earth!

The supplement contains the following eight chapters.
Chapter 1. Outside the Norm. Examining the background of the tragic survivors and their warped offspring, who somehow still survive in the irradiated wilderness, this chapter expands the rules presented in Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD rulebook to provide a wider variety of mutations that offer new and unique twists to mutant characters.
Chapter 2. Taking the Long Walk. Players can choose from a wide range of origins, careers and exploits associated with this deadly environment, allowing them to characterise how they have somehow lived through their experiences of Cursed Earth life.
Chapter 3. Equipment and Vehicles. From camouflage netting to flare guns, las-saws to long guns, radcloaks to shock slicks and cerebral links to spinal taps, this equipment is essential to survive the Cursed Earth. Vehicle enthusiasts can choose from rad wagons, vintage tanks and more!
Chapter 4. Cursed Earth Gazetteer. The interior of the former United States has been transformed into a nightmare landscape where bizarre creatures and the mutated remnants of humanity struggle to survive. In this chapter, find the details on various locations within the redundant state boundaries, along with a scattering of scenario suggestions.
Chapter 5. Beyond the Mega-City. This chapter examines a variety of adventures and campaign types for wilderness adventures, along with different types of character groups to undertake them. Comprehensive tables give Games Masters the tools to improvise adventures involving extreme weather, wilderness locations, NPCs and hideous diseases.
Chapter 6. Diverse Dangers. A chapter dedicated to scenario seeds that can be used entirely on their own, or woven into a campaign set within the post-apocalyptic interior of the former United States.
Chapter 7. The Cursed Earth Saga. An interlinked campaign that relates the original Cursed Earth odyssey to save Mega-City Two allows players to take on the roles of Judges risking their lives across the entire continent, or provides options for actions as perps seeking to stop them in their tracks, Games Masters will also find suggestions for further adventures to the locations from the original comic strip.
Chapter 8. Denizens and Menagerie. Life still exists in the Cursed Earth, but its flora and fauna are mutated and dangerous. The creatures presented here are all potential threats to player characters, ranging from crawling swarms of biting insects to huge carboniferous dinosaurs that are once again at the top of the food chain. Alongside details for running the Cursed Earth NPCs contained within the campaign sections of this book, this chapter can also be used to provide Games Masters with unique adversaries for a wide variety of adventures.
This was an essential purchase for myself and is highly recommended for any fan of the Judge Dredd role-playing game. If you want stats for example, the Angel Gang or other infamous foes encountered out in the Cursed Earth, the likelihood is  they'll be somewhere in here. Whilst I am not interested in replaying Judge Dredd's Cursed Earth Saga, there are enough scenario ideas and hooks to use separately in new and unique scenarios. Even if you set your Judge Dredd campaign wholly within the confines of Mega City One, there are still enough ideas and rules to use anyway. The expanded rules for creating mutants are particularly useful. In short, this is a veritable treasure trove for GMs and players alike to dip their toes into.
This supplement costs £24.99 and is available direct from EN Publishing, Amazon UK and even Warlord Games, who now stock all of the Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD role-playing products.

  1. Great review Bryan, and covers one of my favourite areas of the Judge Dredd universe. As they cover the campaign to get the meds to Mega City 2, do they cover the vehicle they used ? Also did they cover the people who leave MC1 to look for a better life in MC2 in the wagon trains ?

    1. Hi, Dave. I'm glad you liked the review. Yes, stats for the Land Raider are included, as are the Hell Trekkers you mention. It is a very comprehensive supplement.

    2. Excellent ! Have still got the Matchbox Land Raider, but planning on making a proper scale one, plus working on a design for a vehicle that would double up for a Hell Trekker vehicle, then I might start on some muties.
      Did your sky sharks make it on the list ?

    3. I still have my Matchbox Land Raider, Dave, but would love to have a proper 32mm scale version. Sadly, sky sharks are not covered in this supplement but may appear later (hopefully!).

  2. Great review Bryan & I would agree that RPG books are a great source for table top gaming ideas.

  3. I thought this was worth the price for the map of the cursed earth alone, Bryan. An essential purchase, as you say, for anyone with even a passing interest in old Stony Face.

  5. Hi Everyone,This was how me and my Boyfriend became VAMPIRES. I got a guy from the internet called Lord who was a VAMPIRE so i told him that me and my boyfriend would love to become a VAMPIRES so he asked me of my Name ,Country, Age ,State , address and in the next 3 days i got the blood sample through the DHL which me and my boyfriend took in the blood into our body and in the next 30 minutes we turned into a VAMPIRE so if you are interested in becoming a VAMPIRE. First: Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books, Sure. I understand. You are young; you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com
