Sci-Fi is big again, and those of you who are GUMSHOE fans (Pelgrane‘s excellent house system, designed by the inestimable Robin Laws) need look no further for your fix than the Ashen Stars setting.
They call you lasers. Sometimes you’re called scrubbers, regulators, or shinestars. To the lawless denizens of the Bleed, whether they be pirates, gangsters or tyrants, you’re known in less flattering terms. According to official Combine terminology, the members of your hard-bitten starship crew are known as Licensed Autonomous Zone Effectuators. You’re the seasoned freelancers local leaders call when a situation proves too tough, too baffling, or simply too weird to handle on their own. In the abandoned fringe of inhabited planets known as the Bleed, you’re as close to a higher authority as they come.
Thanks to the New Year, New Game sale, you can grab a bundle containing not only the core game, but a set of music specifically designed for the setting, and the Terra Nova adventure, all for $15.00.
