Starcana (Genesys Foundry)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Available on the Genesys Foundry.

Gather your comrades and blast off to adventure in the Almacar Galaxy! Using the Genesys Roleplaying System, this sourcebook allows players to adventure through space discovering new worlds and riches, battle space pirates and raid the digital frontier, and unlock the mysteries of a newly discovered mystical power -- starcana. With an ancient threat emerging from the depths of space, the heroes of Starcana are in for a wild ride!

Adventure through the Almacar galaxy as explorers, pilots, soldiers, swindlers, and even magic-using starcanists. Travel through the interstellar nations of Known Space, where the fragile peace is mere moments away from shattering. Tread carefully with the Vilithic Church, whose priests and paladins shield civilization from the notice of the Vile Gods. Raid the digital Hyper-link network, mining for lost information and dark secrets. Explore the wild frontier worlds of The Edge defending colony worlds from pirates, greedy corporations, and other threats from beyond.

The Starcana Campaign Setting is a 116-page sourcebook for use with the Genesys Roleplaying System. In this book you’ll find new rules and new options for character creation, new weapons, equipment, vehicles, and adversaries, information on the Starcana Universe, and advice for gamemasters to run a campaign in the science-fantasy setting of Starcana. All rules and options presented in this book fit seamlessly with any setting using the Genesys roleplaying system. Recommendations for using rules from other Genesyssettings such as Realms of Terrinoth and Shadow of the Beanstalk are included as well.

 It also includes:

• Eight new species gives GMs and players new options for races to use in their own sci-fi or fantasy settings.
• Many of the careers presented can be brought over for a multitude of themes, from steampunk to modern, fantasy to post-apocalyptic horror, and everything in between.
• New skills and talents provide more options and choices for PCs to advance their characters.
• Two new item qualities are introduced; EMP (which targets an object or vehicle’s System Strain) and Forked (an attack that fans out over a wide area, striking multiple targets).
• 42 pieces of equipment, 33 new weapons, 6 new armors (including unique rules for power armor) satisfy any gear-head’s equipment needs.
• 19 vehicles from hoverbikes and hovertanks to frigates and fighters, including light and heavy mecha suits (called GEARs in Starcana).
• Jump gate travel times, story hooks, and 30 adversaries ready to be used or re-skinned to fit your campaign’s needs.

Start your adventure with the module Everything New is Old.

Character sheets are also available in printable or fillable versions.

There is a map of Known Space that shows the current territories of the galactic nations. At it's widest point, Known Space is approximately 400 light years across. Between the nations are contested regions of various sizes and shapes. Outside all the nations is The Edge, frontiers where explorers are discovering and developing new planets.

Each nation has several systems inside of it, but only 3-5 are currently highlighted in each nation. This leaves plenty of space for players and GM's to fill it with their own worlds to host their stories.

I've enjoyed reading your campaign setting book; a lot of interesting ideas and the art... wow. I have one question: It doesn't specify one way or the other,but are all the species Silhouette 1? (I'm specifically thinking about the Nidenos [evolved dinosuars?])

Would the content in this book complement running a Twilight Imperium based Campaign?

I liked the implication in the Core Book, but I definitely wanted more.

It would, yes. Starcana is built with a "science fantasy/space opera" tone. The careers, talents, vehicles, and equipment would complement any similar settings.

All the species are silhouette 1. The Nidenos are "human sized dino-people". 😉 Some of them are a little taller or broader than most other races (especially the longnecks), but nothing so big that they're considered to be Silhouette 2.
