    [Recruitment] Traveller: A Pocketful of Stardust

    It's a Traveller sandbox campaign! Who doesn't love a Traveller sandbox campaign? If you don't love a Traveller sandbox campaign, probably you shouldn't reply to this thread. Unless you want to learn to love one? Anyway, I have no overall plot in mind; play to find out. (Funny how storygames and...

    🎨 Creative Building an Interstellar Setting

    I've had an idea for an interstellar SF setting, and I thought I'd post the various stages of developing the setting here. It might inspire readers to create their own, attract useful advice or criticism, and help me keep motivated. So, the big idea is that faster-than-light travel is magic...

    Military Sci-Fi

    I'm having game ideas that I won't get to run. :) What systems would you recommend for military sci-fi along the lines of Aliens, the Killzone video game, the Roughnecks cartoon, etc.? I'd like something that is fast-moving enough that a PC doesn't have to chew through 50 HP per enemy, but...

    Help Me Understand My Tastes in Sci-Fi

    I think of myself as someone who doesn't like sci-fi, but when I think on the media I consume, I do see a lot of sci-fi I like. I can't pinpoint it, but I feel like there is a kind of sci-fi that I don't like. I was hoping some hardcore sci-fi fans could take a look at my list of sci-fi that I...

    Card-driven supernatural post-apocalyptic project, seeking input

    So, after many years, I’ve finally decided to start building my own gaming project and what better time than November to do it, since I once heard that it was called NaGaDeMon (NAtional GAme DEvelopment MONth). It’s a diceless (deck of cards), non-binary result mechanics system using a...

    [Kickstarter] Developing mapping content for sci-fi battlemaps

    When it comes to map-making software and mapping assets for pen-and-paper RPGs, the sci-fi genre usually gets short shrift. GMs of sci-fi RPGs like Starfinder, Star Wars RPG, Traveller, Shadowrun, Stars without Number, Numenera, and other sci-fi game systems need and deserve a good set of tools...

    STL Setting Musings

    I’m again struck by the fact that there is a growing amount of modern space opera set in universes without faster than light travel, and where relativistic starships are the only method of traveling between stars, but there are almost no RPGs with such a setting. There are SF games like GURPS...
