STARFARE is sci-fi OSR that fits in your pocket!

After wars have destroyed every planet's government, the galaxy is ruled by only one thing: money. One player (the Pilot) facilitates the game while other players create Agents: soldiers, flyers, and bounty hunters who travel the universe helping the galaxy to rebuild.

The work is all crammed into two trifold pamphlets you can carry with you anywhere. The main brochure holds the rules and fast character creation. The other holds dungeoneering and moderation tips for the Pilot (game facilitator). You can take all of this with you anywhere and play with a dice set and scratch piece of paper!

STARFARE holds the following.

  • Sci-fi OSR ruleset based on Into The Odd by Chris McDowall.
  • An expansion on the rules: for psychic powers and scoundrels bluffing their way out of trouble. These give you mental damage instead of physical.
  • Two trifold pamphlets: one for players and one for the Pilot (facilitator). Great for creating and playing on the go.
  • Rules-light OSR gaming so you can focus on making money and cracking skulls in a superpowered futuristic setting.

For background rules, I'm find this text confusing...
"Roll 1d6 and add to your HP, two times. Pick a Background between these or mix & match"
Does this roll change your starting HP or is it just a calculation for the Background table.

...Any chance a full-sized preview is on the way?

Pretty sure it's only 2 double sided pamphlets (4 pages) for the entire PDF. So the preview would basically be the product.

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.
