About

For Cyber Punk role playing enthusiasts who are dissatisfied with role playing games not giving them enough freedom. Our game is enjoyable and easy to pick up where other RPG games are a grind or are too preformed. Dark Stars has enough complexity to take the game as far as you want it to go.

Dark Stars a Cyberpunk Role Playing Game set in space, where cybered up anarchists and gritty soldiers of fortune fight greedy corporations across the human colonies and the cold vastness of the galaxy’s outer rim.

We are raising funds to print off the Rule Books, Scenario Books and fund more artwork and develop two more expansion books. 

Mining on Titan

We created the Dark Stars role playing game because there wasn't a game that could handle vehicle combat, hacking combat and personal combat in one system with the tools the game masters and players need to build the campaigns they want to play. You can do a gritty Martian street fight, a space opera or a colonization of new planet. Our simple systems will allow you to do what you want easily.

Gritty Martian Street Fight

The game has been developed over ten years and started off with the D20 systems before moving through D100 and onto our own proprietary systems.  We have play tested the game with over a hundred different groups and it is ready for the galaxy.

Patrolling the Block

The rewards we are offering range from pdf's of the rule book to hard copies of the rules and expansion books through to collaboration with writers and artist to shape the future of the Dark Stars Universe. We have also teamed up with Level Up Dice and include their kickass dice on many of the backer tiers.

Concept Art

 Kickstarter backers will get the new books first and will get them for less than retail pricing.  You can also download a 40min teaser scenario of the Dark Stars game, artwork and mood music for playing Dark Stars free at darkstarsuniverse.com

Dark Stars Kickstarter Reward List

All prices in Australian Dollars. 

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges are not being able to meet demand over 2000 Dark Stars hard cover rule books. We will need to print off more books which may take another month for delivery.
