FINAL HOURS! STRETCH GOALS!

Exploring strange new worlds and civilizations is one of the most exciting aspects of science fiction. In many cases, though, these worlds are merely variations of our own, with cultures and technology not much farther beyond what is over our present horizon.

With Galactic Baroque RPG Universe Generator, your horizons will be vastly expanded. Not merely a random solar system creation engine, this tabletop roleplaying game supplement can also generate exotic, far future locales that better reflect where super- and ultra-advanced technology will take us. Does humankind still live in trees or caves? Of course not; we learned to build our own habitations long ago. Likewise, this system can generate civilizations of terraformed planets, megaengineered space colonies, ringworlds, stargates, and more!

DETAILS INCLUDE:

  • Astronomic, biological, historical, and special details.
  • Scalable from single world focus up to galactic overview.
  • Different charts for different technological levels.
  • AND MORE should stretch goals be met.

Galactic Baroque RPG Universe Creator will be a large trade paperback of 30-50 pages (or more when stretch goals are met).

If this project is successful, I am eager to publish more of my ideas. Galactic Baroque is an immense, far future science fiction setting spanning a million worlds over a million years of civilizations.

To ensure this supplement gets out into the world, this Kickstarter project has a low initial funding goal. Once that threshold is met, stretch goals will be added, starting with:

$1750 STRETCH GOAL: ALIEN LIFE GENERATOR!

Quickly detail alien ecologies and even intelligent species with this extra for Galactic Baroque RPG Universe Generator. Includes charts for evolved/gengineered Earth-origin life and for truly alien ecosystems.

Thank you so much for your assistance!

Risks and challenges

Barring anything that severely limits my ability to think, type, and click a mouse, as long as I have a functional computer and accessible internet connection, I am justifiably confident (from previous self-publishing experience) that I will beat the deadline I set to deliver this supplement. In the unlikely event that I am held back, you shall all be fully apprised of the situation.
