A nation mired in the Great Depression elects a new president. Some men, supposedly “America’s elite,” fear his reforms. They have a plan to overthrow Franklin Roosevelt and replace him with a dictator they control.
One man has the power to stop this dastardly plot. Unfortunately, after a failed suicide attempt, Jakob’s woken up in a hobo camp with no way to tell what he knows. His only hope – America’s only hope – are the hobomancers, train hopping hobo wizards defending the world against monsters and evil.
In their way stand a corrupt wizard, vindictive robber barons, sadistic private eyes, and creatures who know only fire and death. The last hope to save themselves, to save the Union, and maybe the world, is SUICIDE’S RUN!
Suicide’s Run is a complete standalone novel based in the same world as the Hobomancer RPG; you do not need any familiarity with the game to enjoy the novel. For those who play the Hobomancer game, though, there is plenty of rich material that will help flesh out your game world, as well as game stats for the novel’s major characters.
Suicide’s Run is written by Hobomancer co-creator Carter Newton, and illustrated by Hobomancer cover artist Jeffrey Johnson.
