About

Old man Fennis was here when the corporations began to terraform these planets, he was the first to plant a tree and call the place home, or so they say. Now he sits there all day drinking moonshine and shooting anyone that gets to close; he is like the living soul of what these planets have become.

The Colonies, the Frontier, a place of opportunity and riches, where the streets are paved with gold and a person is respected for what they can achieve not for what they have. These planets hold a fortune in minerals and other precious commodities, the promised land …

Or so they said.

In reality the frontier quickly become a lawless bunch of planets, home to smugglers, criminals fleeing justice, bounty hunters and corrupt corporations and when they found all that ancient alien tech, well that was when the shit really hit the fan, a gold rush, a tidal wave of every scumbag and villain the universe could throw at it, these are the border colonies the place you call home!

So what's the Game Part?

You will play characters on this lawless bunch of planets working for criminals, corporations and sometimes even what is considered the law in these parts, whoever pays the most. You are all living out here for a reason, and often that reason means keeping a low profile, but on the frontier, no one gives a rats ass who you were or what you did, so it's every person for themselves.

The universe is a crazy place, and you will have the chance to play criminals, self-aware robots, mutants looking for a fresh start or just someone looking to experience life on the edge and make a few credits.

The Rules

The game runs on a simple percentile system with you with the player rolling under their percentage minus any modifiers, and that is it, no fancy rules or bells and whistles. Of course, there is the ability mechanic, but you don’t wanna hear about that!

Oh, you do, ok, so every class in the game has a unique ability, this could be the ability to heal yourself with every shot that hits the enemy, or the ability to teleport distances or even summon a mech to come to your aid, every class is unique.

And did I mention that you can build hundreds of guns on the fly with a handy weapon creator right there in the core book, well there is that?

How will I get my Stuff?

Everything will be done through DriveThruRPG this includes the print and PDFs, so as long as you have an account, it’s all good,

So what do I get?

Every backer will receive a 100 page PDF of the game, and some of you will also receive a voucher to buy the softback for just the cost of printing and postage, which is damn cheap. Depending on how well everything goes, there might be some stretch goals as well but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Risks and challenges

I have produced a number of projects with FeralGamersInc but this is my first solo project, I can't see any issues going forward the game is lo-fi and easy to learn and most of the art will be stock art.
