Set in 2021, "Supervolcano 2021" is the story of what might happen if the Yellowstone Supervolcano were to erupt and the post-apocalyptic world that follows. The story begins about a month before the eruption, follows the eruption, and chronicles the aftermath as the world plunges into a new Ice Age as global temperatures drop, causing famine, disease, social unrest, etc. and mankind struggles to rebuild civilization.

This role-playing game asks the question: What might happen if the Yellowstone Supervolcano erupts and how might it change the world as we know it? How would people survive? Could we survive?

In 1916, Mount Tambora, a volcano in Indonesia erupted and altered the world's climate, creating what was known as "The Year Without A Summer". What if mankind faced decades, even centuries, of something like that?
