About

Your ship is hit by something, that something has caused major damage and the ships AI does the only thing it has been programmed to do in this situation, jettison the cryo-pods. You are in one of those pods.

Spaced is a game of exploration and danger; the characters awaken to find themselves on a planet surrounded by a blockade of armed satellites and atmospheric mines. Maybe somewhere on the planet, there is a way off, a way to contact help, the only way to find out is to explore.

Spaced is the Sci-Fi offspring of our awesome game Delve. Delve was a Fantasy RPG where the characters found themselves shipwrecked on an island filled with monsters and magic, it was really popular, and so we decided to do it again, but bigger.

Spaced places the characters on a planet, straight out of cryosleep they are disorientated and not sure what happened to their ship, and this is where it all begins.

 Like Delve the game is filled with monsters, weird technology, dungeons and hi-tech ruins. Manic robots and giant corporate mechs patrol the areas between cities, and corporations still try to make a buck.

Player Races

There are a few races to choose from not just Humans, these are Reptilians, Greys, Robots or Enhanced Human. These lead on to a variety of classes like Merc, Scientist and Rogues.

Spaced uses the percentile system where you roll under the percentage chance to succeed. Like, Delve the Spaced RPG is quick and simple to learn with quick OSR style character creation, with characters rolling for their stats on 4d6 (drop the lowest) and this gives each character a starting percentage for skills. We have changed a few things from the Delve design.

Yes there will be Mechs

There will be races and classes which will each offer bonuses and special abilities and give percentage boosts to skills and even attributes. But once done, the game is fast and fun to play and run.

 There are rules for space travel and building your own ships, as well as using Mechs and enhancing your abilities using Bio-ware the game is pretty diverse and sometimes a bit weird.

The planet that the heroes find themselves on is a prison planet, controlled by corrupt corporations, bandits and escaped prisoners/lunatics/test subjects and robots. Others have become stranded here, and their towns are the only real safe place on the planet.

(If all this rings a bell the game as been inspired by Borderlands and other mad sci-fi games).

Having the world planet size allows us to include vehicles, planet hoppers, and various environments and places to discover from corporate factories to spaceports and cities down to frontier towns and abandoned prisons.

Oh, and of course, aliens.

ShamanStockart

 The Planet you begin on is one of a cluster that the characters will eventually be able to explore.

We will be added these when needed.

 The PDFs will ship from DriveThruRPG with the Print on Demand Codes also coming from DriveThruRPG; these codes will allow you to buy the game for the cost of printing and posting.

The price we are estimating to be around $10-12 for a Hardback and a little less for a softback, this will be a slightly bigger book than Delve as we will have a lot more ground to cover.

Risks and challenges

We released Delve before time and with that games system as our base it should make everything a bit quicker. Of course, there is always a possibility of delays but they are often unforeseen. Most of the Artwork will be stock as well as the artwork we have commissioned and never used, which will help keep the project on path.
Layout, Editing and any stretch goals we hit will be the main work along with revisions and rewrites from playtesting and proofing, but these are factors in every game and we have released a number of projects well before time.
