Space 1889: Quickstart - PDF - FREE
Everything Jules Verne could have written. Everything H. G. Wells should have written. Everything Arthur Conan Doyle thought of, but never published – because it was too fantastic.
Space: 1889 brings to life the literary fantasies created by Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, H. R. Haggard, and many others. Space: 1889 is a science fiction roleplaying game in a more civilised time. A time when gentlemen and ladies of good character discover that there are adventures to be found in London’s fogbound alleys just as much as there are on the dusty streets of Syrtis Major on Mars. A time when soldiers might be posted to East Africa or Mars by order of their country; a time when inventors rush to test their latest designs and their latest theories; a time when historians search for the secrets of the ancient Martians; and when wild Venusian Lizard-men and proud Martian steppe warriors must serve their tribes and seek fame and fortune in a time when aliens from Earth have come to their planets.
This free quickstart adventure allows you to sample roleplaying in a more civilised age and includes:
- A compelling mystery to explore at the Monastery of Tasharvan.
- Four pre-generated characters, officer, inventor, discoverer and xeno archaeologist
- Splendid maps and illustrations bring the red planet to life!
