After spending five years searching the cosmos, Jayce was pinned with a reputation for being an alcoholic on the edge of sanity. Only crew members who were marked as undesirable by other ships were assigned to the Aurora. Their investigations take them throughout the galaxy, interacting with myriad races and people on both sides of the law, including Renegade criminals: Dro Tov, Trixx We'quor and Belle Azur a smuggler/racer, a hacker/thief and an assassin respectively.

Hexagon Role Playing Game by Diego Pisa Artworks
  • END DATE: Sun, January 19 2020 12:49 PM EST.
  • SYSTEM(S): An original system
  • PROJECT TYPE: Core rulebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: €3 for the character sheet, stretch goals, and more
“Character Sheet based RPG. Have fun learning how to play on the fly! I call the game Hexagon for many reasons, the main one is that between the geometrical forms in the character sheet, the hexagon is the most important, the one you'll use to build your character and evolve. The second reason comes from a player who joking said I've rebuilt the game six times. My approach was to imprint in character creation, game mechanics, and evolution, the same dynamic feel videogames, movies, and anime give us. In-game we always rely on our character sheets for information; so, I've decided the game rules should be built on tutorial sheets, easy to print and consult in a tablet or phone.”

“A Solo Operative Game Book. As part of a team, you have dealt with situations in Africa, Central America, Europe and the USA and as a team, you have completed these missions successfully, but sometimes a mission calls for something else, something more covert, under the radar and off the record and these missions call for a single professional to step up and do the job. You are the professional, a tier-one operator trained to survive in the harshest conditions against insurmountable odds… You are the Lone Wolf. The first of 3 books Operation Lone Wolf puts you in charge of a highly trained operator sent to retrieve highly classified material from an enemy research base. The book comes with all the rules to play as a solo operator and to even transfer a current Ghost Ops character into the role and out again to re-join your unit. The game uses a modified version of the FeralEngine which is totally compatible with the Core Ghost Ops rules and source material. As a player you follow along and make decisions similar to other choose your own adventure style books, all you need is a pencil and some dice. You can use Fudge Dice or standard D6 and instructions to use standard D6 are inside the book along with character creation and conversion, rules to play and a character sheet. The book itself will be around 200 pages with black and white artwork throughout by Coty Polk and the mission itself is in three parts, Part 1: The Wreckage, Part 2: Infiltration and Part 3: Escape.

I wish success for this project, but I have to complain because in Spanishs language Devir only has published the core, and some modules for the first path, but nothing about "Pact Worlds" nor "Alien Archive".

About 3PP I am not interested about crunch nor fluff, but some things as PC races or some new base class.

That pitch for Destiny Aurora is pretty bad. It spends most of its space talking about someone else's characters, while giving zero details about the actual setting. The only mildly interesting thing in it is the term "Senatorial Wife."


Egg, I don't know if you knew about this or posted it in an earlier thread, but you should check out the "Adventurer's Tarot" Kickstarter. The Adventurer's Tarot I've backed it already, and there is 14 days left to back. (It ends on Jan 31)
