Strike Legion: Science Fiction RPG

Play the role of a Legionnaire.

A superhuman fighting machine designed to be perfect.

Fight the Imperium because they want to destroy everything that you believe in and love.  

They're the bad guys.

Win at all costs.

If you lose, the Republic is lost.

What is Strike Legion?

   Strike Legion is a pen and paper science fiction roleplaying game set in the future where the mighty Imperium fights the Star Republic for domination of the universe. The Imperium encompasses millions of worlds with uncountable numbers of subjugated humans.  The Star Republic is a union of different sentient species that fight for their right to peace and progress.  The Imperium swarms its enemies with endless hordes of ships while the Republic is defended by the Fleet with its small fleets of powerful and advanced battleships.  The Imperium seems unstoppable as each new wave of Imperial ships depletes Fleet resources to the breaking point.

     In comes the Strike Legion to the rescue.  Each Legionnaire is equal to an army of regular soldiers and it is their job to enter Imperial space and destroy the Imperial war machine from within.  They can do what an entire fleet of ships or an army of regular troops could never accomplish.  To win the war, the Legion must prevail but the Imperium creates new and more powerful ways to defeat them everyday.

   This game can be best described as superhuman spies and warriors fighting against an evil empire that wants to conquer the entire universe.  Legionnaires fight hand to hand, suited in power armor, flying advanced spacecraft, or piloting massive battle machines known as mobile frames.

Concise Roleplaying

We all live in a hectic world with incredible responsibilities including family, friends, and work.  If you ever wanted a game designed for your busy lifestyle this is the game for you.  Each mission is designed to be finished in a single game session and all the players share the responsibility for what used to be the job of the gamemaster.  Players take turns writing the mission for each game night that must tell a story and have a great ending so everyone leaves happy.  Every game session is designed to represent a tightly written science fiction television episode or movie.  All the tools you will need to write your mission will be provided in the game including idea hooks and scene starters. 

Game Mechanics

Strike Legion uses a streamlined D10 system for all action resolution.  The difficulty of an action determines the result required for a test.  A player rolls a D10 and multiplies the result by the lowest character trait required for the test.  If a player rolls a 10, she can roll again and add its result before the trait multiplier is applied.  This system means that any character has a chance of passing any task and even a Legionnaire can fail at a task with a bad die roll.

   Combat resolution is fast and strategic.  Every combatant is represented by a token on the battlefield.  These tokens are moved around the table and the distance between them is their range.  Every combatant has a Defense rating which is the roll required by an attacker to hit him.  If a successful attack is made, the damage of the weapon is multiplied by the attacker's skill rating before its applied.  Any Attack roll of 10 deals double damage.  This system allows a weapon master to deal unimaginable amounts of damage with the simplest weapon.

What makes the Strike Legion special?

   Strike Legion was designed to play without a gamemaster.  Players take turn writing missions for their group that describes what happens during a mission in a cinematic way.  Players take turns playing the role of the enemy for each encounter.  Game play is designed to be fast with each mission representing a thirty minute television episode.  Relive the excitement you felt watching your favorite science fiction television show with all its twists and turns and exciting finale.  Strike Legion will provide you with all the tools you need to make thrilling and unique missions.

What makes Strike Legion fun?

   The power structure of the Imperium is broken into factions known as Enclaves so that no one can ever be as powerful as the Empress.  Each faction has unique weapons and characters that utilize different fighting styles and technology to defeat the Legion.  That means the myriad of enemies that your party will fight will be great and the challenge will constantly change each encounter. 

Assassin's Guild

   The Imperial Assassin's Guild utilizes warriors trained to be stealthy killers that not only eliminate the enemies of the Imperium but also keep the citizens of the Imperium loyal.

Foundation Prime

   The tech priests of Foundation Prime use cybernetics to create ultimate warriors to destroy the enemies of the Imperium.

Weavers

   Weavers use bioengeering to enhance Imperial soldiers with biological constructs to make a new species of warriors to fight the Legion.

Psi Core

   The Psi Core is the Imperium's Mastery guild and they produce all the Battle Avatars that can crush an entire fleet of ships with their manipulation of reality.

Protectorate

  This sisterhood of Imperial priestesses spread the gospel of the Empress to all the worlds of the Imperium and each is a living weapon equal to the power of a Legionnaire.

Authority

  This brotherhood of priest is the right hand of the Empress and they maintain order amongst the troops and apply last rites to the dying.  Each is a powerful warrior that is looked up at in awe by the hordes of Imperial troops.

Evolution Sector

   Imperial scientists have developed their evolution processes to produce rivals for the Legion.  The super powered warriors that they produce are a true threat to a Strike Team.

Covenant

   The tech witches of the Covenant can turn a normal Imperial trooper into a super solider by replacing his mind with a Brain Core computer with the engrams of the greatest warriors of the Imperium recorded in its data banks.

Asylum

   The mind benders of the Asylum perform brain surgery on its victims to unleash hidden portions of their patient's minds releasing their true power and evil.

Paranormal Division

   This ancient Enclave uses arcane techniques to trap extra dimensional entities and demons inside Imperial citizens to convert them into a living nightmare.

Death Factory

  The genegineers of the Death Factory create semi-sentient biological machines designed to spread terror and destroy anything in their way. 

Pyramid

  This secret organization leads Imperial society down a specific path toward a future that is desirable to the Empress.  Their use of precognition and mental warfare makes them incredibly dangerous to the Legion and the Republic.
