Stranded in Space

Selected Option:

Drawing from inspirations like FTL and Barotrauma, Stranded in Space has the players desperately struggling to keep their damaged ship in one piece as they limp back to a safe harbor. Every jump presents new challenges to the crew and pushes their ship to the limits. Work together with your crew to repair the ship, fight pirates, and survive the perils of space!

Stranded in Space is simple RPG designed to be played in a single session with a group of 2-4 players. It's perfect for nights when someone in the group can't make it, when you're between games, or as an intro to a larger campaign. The game uses a 2d6, player-facing roll-under system that's easy to pick up. Characters can be recorded on an index card, and the Ship HUD takes as little as a single sheet of paper. Building your ship and creating your crew can take as few as 5 minutes, then you're off to the races!

Included in this book are: 

  • Four sample scenarios for the Inciting Incident, so that you can start playing with almost no prep time!
  • A 2d6 random events table, with several additional ideas for you to swap in and out. 
  • Five secondary ship's systems and seven Special Operations so that you can customize your ship however you like!
  • Six random tables for generating ship, colony, and star names, and more.
  • A printable booklet, laid out for ease of reference. Relevant information is on facing pages so that you don't have flip through pages as much.

If you enjoy the game, please rate it and leave a comment. I'm already scheming about multiple expansions, rules revisions, and content packs, so I'd love to hear your feedback!

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.
