Lost Echoes - Quickstart Demo



Lost Echoes is a space horror tabletop roleplaying game that you roleplay as a death-sentenced
or a thrown-away character who tries to survive in the space.

 You can play this game as a classic dungeoncrawl like OSR, or you can play it as a self-exploration game
like any PbtA games. Either way, space is dangerous and will drive the characters crazy at some point.

If you ever felt like a “wasted generation” or an “unwanted person” in your life,
maybe you are another Lost Echo and the fight and struggle in this game might
encourage you to fight against your demons as well.


I made this game for DriveThruRPG's #PocketQuest2023 event, within a strict time period and page limitation.
This book is just a simple example of what I'm planning to make for Lost Echoes.
Basically, you can play a game only by using this book, but Core Rulebook is on the way.


With YEAR ZERO ENGINE mechanics, you will fight against the enemies that lurks in the darkness,
you will explore yourself to either regain or find your purpose in life,
you will dive into action to survive through every kind of obstacles,
and you will try to obtain a new life.


Thanks to all lovely people who support me and this project, I found more than enough motivation to
evolve this project into a whole new game, with Core Rulebook, adventures and supplements.
You will find a portion of what's on the way inside this Quickstart Demo book.

This is a really nice one-shot quick adventure with a darkest dungeon in space-vibed tabletop game that will provide the entire party with a thrilling 2 to 3 hours. It has vibes reminiscent of the Aliens RPG but doesn't feel clunky or overwhelming [...]

Thematically, the system is quite consistent, providing material that can sustain a few sessions without overwhelming detail, plus the "Dark Fate" concept carries the main theme very well. It enables PC's to become "alive," enc [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
