    Grimmerspace Has Launched!

    Gritty Starfinder-compatible horror sci-fi setting Grimmerspace, which features writing by Sean "Sam Gangee" Astin, has launched on Kickstarter. It's a setting where advanced scientific civilisations encounter magic for the first time, and it doesn't go well.

    If you enjoyed The Styes, an adventure in WotC's latest adventure book for D&D, Ghosts of Saltmarsh, you'll be interested to know that Richard Pett, it's original author, wrote a free Grimmerspace adventure called Abattoir 8 which you can download now. Also involved are Rone Barton and Razor Coast's Lou Agresta.

    Check out the Kickstarter here. For $30 you get the PDFs, and for $40 you get the core game in print. Higher pledge levels even include the Starfinder Beginner Box from Paizo.

    Looks pretty cool. Kinda like DOOM mixed in with WH40K. I backed it.

    Have they said anything about the (alien or transgenic) PC races? Do you think the new sci-fi (or fantasy space) RPGs need rules for mind-transfer and digital immortality?

    Isn't that what Eclipse Phase was for? Not sure it's in this setting or not.

    Mind Transfer and Digital Immortality

    Hi LuisCarlos17f, at this time we decided to not explore mind-transfer and digital immortality for a few reasons: the lesser reason is Eclipse Phase (hey Adam!) did it so well as Superchunk77 pointed out; the more important reason is that its such an game-changing technology to do that well requires accepting the Copernican revolution it represents and, at that point it, it takes over a setting. You kind of have to do only that. It's not to say we wouldn't be open to a future sourcebook *cough*planning*cough, but we have other setting aspects to solidly establish before tackling consciousness uploads.

    Hope that answers your question?

    Super grimdark campaign options that are not Warhammer 40K.

    Best of all, this is Starfinder compatible so another lifeline to Paizo.

    I like the shout to Sam Gamgee, though you forgot to add The Lord of The Rings movie to remind those who did not link the names, Sean Astin the actor and Sam Gamgee the character in a particular movie role.

    You meant to misspell his name?
