The final Pick for New Year, New Game Week (which, BTW, you only have three days left to take advantage of as of this posting) is a $10 bundle for Esper Genesis, the 5e-driven sci-fi project that really takes D&D to the stars in a beautiful and fascinating way.
“This is not a game that wants to be the property-of-your-choice, it’s a game that embraces sci-fi’s adventurous side. It is sci-fi with room for excitement and wonder. And 5E proves an excellent match for this, since EG’s relationship to sci-fi is much like 5E’s relationship to fantasy – it is part of the landscape, but the first priority is to play a game.” — Rob Donoghue, Evil Hat Productions
“Esper Genesis takes a proven system we all know and maps it onto an exciting new science fiction setting. These folks have really drilled down into 5th edition rules and popular cinematic sci-fi and made it all work together.” — Cam Banks, RPG Designer
The main piece is here is the core rules at a significant discount, though there’s also an adventure and some freebies conveniently attached.
