About

The Stormheart Expanse is a region of space which was cut off from the rest by a dark and mirror matter storm as part of another galaxy passed through it. FTL travel was impossible, the only way to cross interstellar distances sub-light drives and ancient Jumpgates created by the now long dead Tenarii.
Eventually, after several centuries, the storm subsided, and contact with the rest of the galaxy has been renewed.
Come and explore this region anew.

The first sector in this book is Sector Asgard Kappa and follows hot on the heels from the successful Sector Asgard Kappa for Savage Worlds and is a version of that sector for Starfinder. This will be adapted and parts rewritten to better suit the Starfinder game, it contains thirty six inhabitable planets with a wide variety of cultures, corporations, religions, aliens and secrets. It is ripe for exploration and adventure!

  • Sector Asgard Kappa - Thirty six new worlds to explore!
  • An adventure for each world
  • A fifteen episode campaign where the characters must stop the evil plans of the Brotherhood of Logic
  • A ship; the Crowfoots Venture
  • Ten new alien races
  • A set of nine pre-generated characters to use in the adventure yourselves or as NPCs

This is a large starship built for exploration, with a mass driver and laser cannons for defense.

Crowfoots Venture
Crowfoots Venture

 The Crowfoots Venture will be designed for Starfinder.

If we raise more than our funding goal we will add more Sectors to The Stormheart Expanse for use in your Starfinder games.

£5,000 Sector Avalon Psi  

Another sector containing another 30+ worlds will be unlocked. This will connect to Sector Asgard Kappa and will include its own A fifteen episode campaign.

£9,000 Sector Avalon Lambda  

Adds another sector. This will connect to the previous two and also include its own fifteen episode campaign.

If we reach the third goal you will have the three sectors into a single massive tome; this will include all the worlds, adventures and the campaigns will be merged into a massive 45 episode storyline.

We have more to add as we go along, if we get this far.

Fulfillment

Your rewards will be fulfilled by DriveThruRPG. The pledges for the print version are at a lower amount because backers will need to later pay the base printing and shipping costs of the book at DriveThru. (You effectively buy the books — but at cost — plus pay your own shipping.)

Backers who pledged for it will receive a code to print their books on DriveThruRPG. They will be able to choose the Softcover (8.5x11") or the Hardcover (8.5x11"), which they pledged for and Standard Color Heavyweight or Premium Color as they prefer - this will be determined in the backer survey..

Estimated Printing Costs 
(assuming a 170 page book, the final book may have a larger page count)

Softcover (Standard) £5.92 - (Premium) £14.39
Hardcover (Standard) £9.22 - (Premium) £17.69

Estimated Shipping costs can be found here.
