Create your own legend.

That was the bigger picture when the Austrian metal band Aeons of Ashes created their experimental project wasteland2570. Post-modern death metal meets storytelling meets role-play – a brand new, interactive concept that probably is globally unique.

The band’s music and the constantly evolving plot of the surreal, post-apocalyptic mystery story are complementing each other. And can be changed by each and every player. Sounds like an experiment? It sure is. Even a hypersigil, maybe.

Dream big. It's all about the experience.

Metalheads, role-players and fans of dark fantasy universes are invited to immerse themselves in wasteland2570. They can create and develop their own characters, and bring them to life via video sequences, blog entries, or of course in pen & paper role-playing. At the same time your character’s actions might influence the whole multiverse of wasteland2570.

What is quite special about wasteland2570 is that you can earn experience both in-game (as your character is making progress in role-play adventures, appears in videos or publishes a blog entry) and out-game (for coming to shows, joining events or completing special tasks). But you might read more on that in the Game Rules section or our FAQs.

Season 1: What happened so far.

wasteland2570 was first revealed to the public on November 23rd, 2019 when Aeons of Ashes played a live show in their hometown St. Pölten, Lower Austria. And since then, a lot has happened.

  • Almost 30 players from 4 different countries joined wasteland and created their own wasteland characters.
  • More than 70 blog entries from 16 players were published.
  • 21 characters appeared in the band’s videos so far.
  • 20 players from 3 countries joined (and enjoyed) pen & paper role-playing sessions.

Not to forget that any of these events have changed the wasteland multiverse. Sometimes it might be a bit hard to keep track what actually happened in wasteland2570.

To make that a bit more accessible, we decided to publish a summary of Season 1’s most important events at the beginning of Season 2: The wasteland2570 Chronicles, Season 1.

Coming up: Season 2.

Based on the findings and developments of Season 1, Season 2 will be opened on November 21st, 2020 at Freiraum St. Pölten. With a spectacular Aeons of Ashes solo show including an extended live set, interactive puzzles and a screening of all previous videos. And with unexpected, new discoveries, as a matter of course.

13 New Keys.

13 new keys are waiting to be discovered in Season 2. Alongside six keys that were already featured in Season 1, that makes 19 ways to earn your ticket to wasteland2570. For as soon as you find at least one of the keys, you can create your own wasteland character.
