1 Day Left To Die Hard On A Starship!

The one-week SolSpace: The Spartan Gambit Kickstarter has launched! Can the PCs end the Spartan siege of the USF Copernicus? Plus we have created full deck plans of an entire starship!

This is a "Quickstarter" -- it's there for one week only! It will end on Monday, March 9th.

The Spartan Gambit is a tabletop roleplaying adventure by Russ 'Morrus' Morrissey (EN World, WOIN, Judge Dredd, the ENnies) and Darren Pearce (Doctor Who, Lone Wolf, Shaintar). It takes place on the huge Endeavour Mk I Class XI Cruiser, USF Copernicus, when a raiding party from the Spartan scout Maelstrom takes control of the vessel. Their plan is interrupted when your PCs return from an away mission to find the starship occupied! Can you defeat the Spartans before the villains break into the bridge?


The Spartan Gambit is an adventure and sourcebook powered by the WOIN system. If you don't have the core rulebook, you can grab that here too.
  • A softcover adventure/sourcebook, The Spartan Gambit.
  • Detailed maps of 30+ decks of an entire starship (also in png format for VTTs and other uses).
  • A bonus 30-page PDF adventure, Frozen Secrets, by Darren Pearce for every backer who pledges for the £15 reward ('Crewmember') or higher.
  • Tons of optional extra material (see below).
  • Just the adventure, or a complete package including the core rules for those who don't already have them.

This full-colour, 70-page softcover book contains:
  • An introduction to the SolSpace setting detailing the Allied Union of Worlds, and the Union Space Force with its various divisions.
  • Careers for creating a Union Space Force officer, using the WOIN life-path system to take a character through Space Force Academy, Branch School, their Cadet Cruise, and their first Tours of Duty. Play an engineer, helmsman, intelligence officer, medical officer, psi-corps agent, science officer, security officer, or tactical officer.
  • Details of the USF Copernicus, including its crew and statistics.
  • The full adventure, The Spartan Gambit, as the PCs crawl though engineering ductways and lift shafts, in an attempt to take their ship back from the invaders!
  • Four pre-generated USF officers: Lt. Valor M'Parr, an empathic Venetian psi-corps officer who speaks to plants; Lt. Commander Kotos Banaga, a quick human security officer who loves the gym; Lt. C.H.A.R.L.I.E., a brilliant android medic who aways follows the rules; and Lt. Commander Jim Townsend, a posh human engineer who is used to the best things in life.
  • Game statistics for NPC officers from cadets to captains, villainous Spartan warriors, prefects, and berserkers, and alien monsters like carnivorous plants, four-armed kremlin beasts, and nanobot swarms.
  • Maps of every deck of the huge USF Copernicus, from the main bridge to engineering to the arboretum to sickbay! More than 30 maps in total! You also get all those maps separately for free as image files for use on virtual tabletops or to use as you wish.
Additionally, every backer who pledges at the £15 pledge level reward ('Crewmember') or higher gets the bonus 30-page PDF adventure, Frozen Secrets! The USF Copernicus is sent to find out why a mining colony has gone silent. Enter an insane A.I., nanobots, and the living dead...

This adventure/sourcebook requires the WOIN-powered N.E.W. Science Fiction core rulebook. If you have this, you can buy the adventure on its own; if you don't, you can also grab the core rules and other SolSpace supplements right here - for just £20 grab the 200+ page core rulebook and The Spartan Gambit in PDF format - everything you need to play!

Look at all these maps! We've mapped an entire starship. Too many decks to show below -- from the main bridge to engineering, from the messhall to sick bay. Your characters will explore nearly 50 decks, including the cargo bay, hangar deck, crew quarters, science labs, detection block, even an arboretum and hydroponics deck!

The maps are in the book itself, but we'll also provide you with a map pack of the bare images for printing or use on a virtual tabletop. These are 300 DPI .png files, measuring roughly 20"x30" each, so you can resize them as needed.
