Jericho is a drama about what happens when a nuclear mushroom cloud suddenly appears on the horizon, plunging the residents of a small, peaceful Kansas town into chaos, leaving them completely isolated and wondering if they’re the only Americans left alive. But in this time of crisis, as sensible people become paranoid, personal agendas take over and well-kept secrets threaten to be revealed, some people will find an inner strength they never knew they had and the most unlikely heroes will emerge.
I really liked Jericho the TV series and was very disappointed when they cancelled it after just one season. Was pleased when it was renewed for a second season.
At the end of season two the series started to get really interesting… and then the series was cancelled!
A third season was published as a comic, but though nice, it’s not just the same.
There were lots of great ideas that could be transferred to gaming scenarios from Jericho. From small skirmishes that wouldn’t seem out of place in the old west, to large scale modern tank battles.
