Today we have released the third and final open beta for Shadows Over Sol, our upcoming science fiction horror roleplaying game. All this is in preparation for the game's upcoming September Kickstarter. A quick-start preview of the game is also available at DriveThruRPG.
This phase of the beta takes into account the feedback we received during the first two phases of the open beta. We have made numerous fixes and tweaks to the game. Shadows Over Sol uses the latest iteration of the Saga Machine system - the same system used by Against the Dark Yogi.
Anyone can sign up for the open beta today, and download a fully-playable draft of the game rules! Just enter your email into the signup form here!
Want to know more about Shadows Over Sol? Here's the blurb:
Two hundred years from now what should be the shining beacon of the future is instead cloaked in conspiracy and horror. Humankind has expanded throughout the solar system, and there discovered mysteries older than humanity. The culture has shattered into myriad subcultures; nation-states are the hollow shells of what they once were. Corporations and other groups wage small-scale wars in the streets or in space. Bioengineered horrors left over from these conflicts stalk the hulls of ruined stations and abandoned colonies. But for an enterprising team willing to brave the horrors, there's always a profit to be made.
Shadows Over Sol is a hard-science fiction horror roleplaying game using the Saga Machine system. It's features include:
- Support for a wide spectrum of tones in the science fiction and horror genres.
- Fully-realized setting with detailed breakdown of both social dynamics and the solar system, from Mercury to the Oort Cloud.
- Systems for personal combat, engineering, hacking and spaceships.
- Discover the secrets of the Sol system, with multiple GM options to keep players on their toes.
