It's the Second Age of Space the transhuman adventure is just beginning!
Its transhumanist space opera with a twist. Usually in transhumanist settings transfer of personalities is a common theme and the transferred mind is still considered to be the person it was before. This is different in Mindjammer and it makes the game much more playable in my opinion. The setting is definitely what makes the game a must-have for SF fans. Its unique, extremely detailed, and should be a lot of fun to play.
Wow! UK RoleplayingOverall I have to say wow. This is an epic piece of work The scope and breadth is magnificent and the little personal details in each chapter make this a joy to read through. The fact that the system uses Fate Core I find intriguing. In fact so much so that I will be placing my order forthwith! To be honest the price of $54.99 for a 500-page book and PDF I think is a bargain. This gets a hearty endorsement from UK Roleplaying. Grab your blasters and let's all head for the stars!!
[Mindjammer] does damn near anything you might want it to do for a sci-fi campaign. Gracefully. With style. And in a way that's fun for GM and players alike From a layout and design standpoint, the book is stunning If you've ever pondered running a FATE-based space campaign, I don't think you'll find a deeper resource of ready-to-use information than the Mindjammer book.
Mind-blowing Geek Native
Mind-blowing A Fate Core powered sci-fi RPG that feels larger than space istelf and given there is the Mindscape to explore, use, master and worry about, in addition to physical space, perhaps it really is that large. Mindjammer: The Roleplaying Game is a transhuman epic.
