ADD TO WISHLIST >

Farsight RPG is a tabletop role-playing game designed to bring science fiction to your table, adapting to any sci-fi setting and style: from the most epic and utopian space-opera to the grittier cyberpunk, techno-thriller or post-apocalyptic dystopia.

Explore uncharted worlds and sprawling cities, roam the cosmos, confront with unknown species, alien civilizations, prodigious technologies, mysteries and conspiracies. Well, provided you can survive the dangers lurking just beyond the edge of the known!

Using the Double Twelve system, influenced by the 5th edition of the most popular rpg of all time as well as many other games, both classical and modern, Farsight RPG is simple and easy to learn and master, but capable of giving you all the depth and details that science fiction demands.

With a flexible character-building system and twenty levels of advancement players can create the heroes they want and forge their own destiny. With useful and fine-tuned tools and aids game masters will be able to create amazing scenarios for their adventures and campaigns.

If you have always wanted to explore the future in its endless possibilities, we believe Farsight RPG might be the game for you.

The FARSIGHT RPG Corebook contains everything needed to play, for both players and GMs. All the Farsight RPG basic and advanced rules; a wide variety of options for characters creation; equipments and technologies, vehicles and starships; psionic powers; campaign, adventures, and scenarios creation tools; alien creatures, npcs and other kind of foes; and more!

Can someone clarify for me whether skills can stack during character creation? For example, if you would get Piloting from two sources, would it begin at rank 2, or would you need to select a different skill (so that all skill picks at first level are at rank 1 only)?

Hello Tidus, your second guess is correct.
If you get the same skill from two different sources, just select a different skill instead. At 1st level, you can only acquire skills at rank 1).

One more question please, Dario, since it's come up in a session: does a Dalok's Exotic Physiology species trait make them effectively immune from taking damage from the bleeding condition (as they have resistance to Biotic damage)? I ask because it would determine whether our Dalok character would have failed death saves or not due to repeat damage?

In essence, I'm asking whether there is a minimum amount of damage that can be taken from any source (1, in this case) that isn't reduced through armour, as is the case in some games, or whether the Dalok is effectively immune to taking biotic damage from bleeding and therefore safe from automatic death save failures.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry Tidus, I wasn't notified of your comment and consequently I only saw it now! My apologies for the terrible delay of this reply.
This is a good question. No, Dalok's biotic damage resistance do not make them immune to the Bleeding condition.
First, it is true that resistance halves the damage, but it is up to you to decide if it can completely negate it or not. For instance, in my games usually 1 damage can't be halved. In any case, even if it were, a dalok would still not be immune to automatic death saving throw failures, since the condition clearly states that at 0 VP "the bleeding does not cause damage but implies the automatic failure of the death saving throw".
Hope this can help ;)

Why does the shotguns damage drop from 2d8 to 1d10 when used in close range? It specifically says that I is made for close rage but as written it is the worst ranged weapon for it.

Hi Jeremy! You spotted an error! It should say short range, not close range! We will add this to our errata and correct the error in a future update on the files! Thank you!

I would love to see an overview of what third-party publishers can access to create adventures, alternate settings etc (which core races or equipment considered OGL?).

We are working on a "SRD" version of the system! Some stuff is already on our website, but it is not complete yet.
But do not worry, soon there will be everything third parties need to create products for Farsight and the Double Twelve system. :)

Usually, on our store. But right now it is temporarily closed because we are dealing with the shipment of our Kickstarter campaign.
It will be back online in about a month.

Also in the future we will probably enable the print on demand option here on DTRPG.

Yes! This is desperately needed for the future availability of this system. Others that have not done this leave their game inaccessible due to the out of reach pricing of the reseller market (like $150 to $200 books... if not higher). People quickly tune out of a game system if they can't reasonable access it.

Once we have completely finished the fulfillment of our KS campaign, we hope to be able to dedicate part of our resources to VTT support as well.
Unfortunately, we are a very small team, so our options are limited, at least for now.

I would second supporting a Foundry module, once you get around to looking at which Virtual Tabletop system to support.

Hope you'll enjoy what we've done with Farsight! The foundation are the same of 5E, but the game itself (and its balance) is quite differet.

This game looks really interesting, I am sorry I missed the kickstarter. As a starship fan, how does a typical starship stat out? For instance a destroyer...

Hi!
Take a look at the free Farsight "sheets" pdf you can download here on DT. It contains the starship sheet too, that can give you an idea on how starships stat out in Farsight.

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.
