LAWLESS SPACE - coming soon to an Internet near you!
Experience HIGH-OCTANE FULL THROTTLE SCIENCE FANTASY ADVENTURE!
At the edge of the known universe is a frontier territory that no intelligent civilization has yet to claim or even recognize. It is a space for pioneers, explorers, criminals, exiles, and marshals, each looking to carve out a home, glory, riches, or justice.
LAWLESS SPACE is populated by:
- Wayward travelers, lost in time through wormholes!
- Blastersword-wielding scions of star-spanning empires!
- Hivemind accountants seeking the deadly 'omega audit'!
- Hyperbike-riding radiation pirates!
- Otherdimensional open-sourceresses infused with crackling cosmic energy!
- Enterprising mobsters connected to the Kaiju Kartel!
- Sentient planetoids going through a teenage goth phase!
- Heavy metal-blaring slamazons riding overclocked warpboards!
- Anthropomorphic animal cosmonauts from parallel realities!
- All manner of other intergalactic denizens!
LAWLESS SPACE is intended to be a game that allows for all manner of absolutely insane sci-fi and science fantasy character ideas and situations, whether played straight or as absurdity.
LAWLESS SPACE is meant to be part blank canvas, part ever-clarifying universe crafted by the contributions of players and their amazing, wacky, badass ideas about what might exist beyond the edge of the cosmos. Think space opera + candy-coated ghost peppers + sleep deprivation to a Psy cover of Manowar.
LAWLESS SPACE makes use of the Fate Core rules to try and allow for character concept flexibility while still offering some sort of narrative-friendly mechanical arbiter (as desired/needed). There might be other systems out there but, whatever, Fate works well to support bizarre high-concept ideas.
