Black Angel


 

 

 

 

 

Humanity, through its irresponsible behavior, has exhausted the natural resources of Earth, making it almost uninhabitable. In a burst of lucidity, pressed by the irreversible degradation of your planet, the great nations are forced to put aside their differences and share their knowledge in order to create the most vast spacecraft ever constructed. Thus, the BLACK ANGEL project is launched.

The Black Angel, the first intergalactic frigate in history, must transport the genetic heritage of humanity beyond known worlds, over a journey that is likely to last several thousand years. Her crew will be composed of only robots. Because no nation is willing to trust creation of the AI (artificial intelligence) that will control this crew to any other nation, a compromise is found: The Black Angel will be co-managed by several AIs, and the utility of each decision will be evaluated in VP (Validation Process).

At the completion of this long and perilous voyage, when a new inhabitable planet has been reached, the AI that has earned the most VP will be entrusted with reawakening Humanity, and overseeing its new start….

All the reports are in agreement: The Black Angel is approaching Spes, a planet with the highest probability for habitability by the human species. Take advantage of our approach to maintain the good relations you have gradually woven with the benevolent Alien species populating the galaxy, and watch out for the dreaded Ravagers, who would do anything to prevent you from reaching Spes.

Stellium


 

 

 

 

 

Stellium is a game in which players are architects of the universe just after its creation. They have to draw celestial bodies from a bag (represented by marbles with different textures, so they can try to pick the one they are looking for) and place them on the universe to complete contracts. Each type of celestial body has an effect on the universe, e.g., the comet takes the place of another one and “pushes them in line”.

Teens in Space RPG: Core Rulebook


 

 

 

 

 

The sound of the photon-powered battering ram echoes in your ship. Your Sollemnean pilot informs you that the doors have an 83.4% chance of breaking with the next hit. The cyborg dog to your right is checking and rechecking her enhancements. Your hand rests on the blaster at your hip as you hear the battering ram powering up again. As it hits, the sound of metal rending sends the rest of your crew to high alert. But you smile. This is going to be fun.. 

In Teens in Space, you’ll venture into the cosmos for adventure and profit. Along the way your crew’s bonds will be tested, your ship will malfunction, and you’ll probably get shot a few times. But that’s all in a day’s work for Teens in Space!

Robotech Crisis Point


 

 

 

 

 

Following the annihilation of Earth, human survivors struggle to rebuild their once-great planet, only to be faced with a new threat. The Robotech Masters arrive to complete the mission that their Zentraedi armada began… to secure their empire by reclaiming the Protoculture matrix before it is located by the Invid. In their way stands the Army of the Southern Cross!

The exciting, stand-alone sequel to SolarFlare Games’ ROBOTECH: Force of Arms lets you take control of the epic conflict known as the Second Robotech War. One player takes the lead as the plotting, scheming, desperate Robotech Masters, while the other player commands the valiant and determined Army of the Southern Cross.

In this head-to-head card game, players are engaged in conflict for control of the Earth, each side pitting their varied infantry and mecha-based units against each other in an all-out war with only one victor. In addition to their mecha and weapons, players wield powerful command actions and amazing heroes to turn the tide of conflict and ensure victory.

ROBOTECH: Crisis Point is a two-player head-to-head card game. Strategy, tactics, area control, bluffing, and hand management all come into play in this dynamic and deep game of Alien vs Human in a battle of wits and courage. Will you save humanity or utterly destroy it?

Over the Edge RPG: Core Rulebook


 

 

 

 

 

At the heart of Over the Edge third edition are the nine districts of the Edge, each with a unique flavor, colorful characters, memorable locales, and a mélange of bizarrity ruled over by a patchwork of cabals openly tolerated or empowered by the all-powerful anarchic State. Behind this public face of the city, however, there is a secret world of conspiratorial factions, strange fringe abilities, cutting edge technology, and cross-reality incursions.

The result is a crazed sandbox setting which is infinitely receptive to whatever offbeat and outlandish ideas the players and gamemaster choose to pour into it. Over the Edge adds a final dash of madness with the “GM’s Secret Bag of Tricks,” a dozen fringe concepts and a gaggle of colorful characters, each of which can completely transform your version of the Edge or serve as the nucleus around which your entire campaign will form.

Over the Edge features:

  • Fast, dramatic character creation that’s laser-focused on creating dynamic, active characters. Player-defined traits quickly establish what characters can do, and each PC’s Trouble & Question force characters into personal crucibles that drive story.
  • A simple 2d6 resolution mechanic uses a lightning-fast comparison of level and difficulty to generate rerolls instead of managing modifiers through addition and subtraction.
  • Inject shocking, unexpected outcomes into the narrative through good twists, bad twists, and “twist ties.”
  • Three strikes and you’re dead. But unless you’re at risk of your third strike, you can safely take big risks, electrifying gameplay with big, exciting moments.

Brain Waves: Wise Whale, Astute Goose & Brilliant Boar


 

 

 

 

 

In Brainwaves: The Wise Whale, players lay nine cards showing different colorful sea creatures face down after trying to memorize which creatures are on which cards. During a player’s turn, they reveal a new card from the deck. Then, they must reveal a card that matches either the creature or the color on this new card. If they do, they claim this card, and then lay out a new card face down in its place. Whoever collects the most cards wins.

In Brainwaves: The Astute Goose, players must identify a burglar hiding in a crowd. What did the culprit look like? What color were their clothes? And what animal accomplices did they have with them? Suspect cards are assigned a number, from one to six. Players look at these cards, then turn them face down. On a turn, a player rolls the two dice: one showing a number, the other a characteristic of a burglar card. If the player can identify the correct item on the correct burglar card, they claim that card as a reward, and then put a new card in its place. Whoever collects the most cards wins.

In Brainwaves: The Brilliant Boar, each player takes cards showing different animal portraits on their reverse sides into their hand. They can look at the cards briefly when they draw them, but then must face the cards away from them. On a player’s turn, they can either take the top card from the deck into their hand or play one of their cards onto the table, attempting to make as many pairs as possible from the card just played and those already face up on the table. Whoever collects the most cards wins.
