New Solar Echoes Mission, Operation: Void Hunter!

Designed for characters of levels 3-4. Why is the Union Guard sending you to Sa’mesh? The Krissethi planet is officially labeled a wildlife preserve, but it is actually a commercialized hunting ground full of deadly lifeforms. The Union Guard is acting on a tip that an unregistered Voidrunner starship was spotted landing somewhere in the forests of Sa’mesh. Considering the mysterious qualities of Voidrunners, the Union Guard is highly suspicious and is sending you and your team to investigate. Can you survive the deadly lifeforms of Sa’mesh, and uncover the mystery that awaits?

Includes Krissethi Hunter culture, an involved story with unique characters, games and gambling, lots of NPC’s to question and coerce, Krissethi Hunter NPC’s for hire as guides and protectors, a Krissethi weaponsmith who can customize and improve weapons, deadly alien lifeforms (with full stats and color icons, including the new and very dangerous Mokaru!), hacking grids, starship cards, NPC outlaws with character and starship map icons, and a full-color 4-page wilderness battlemap and a 2-page starship interior battlemap with separate map keys with specific map details and rules

Solar Echoes Player’s Guide Update!

This update will be released on 5/2/2017 on www.RPGnow.com. Anyone who has previously purchased the Player’s Guide will receive an email notice when the update is live, and can download an updated copy for free.

Discount! A $5 discount off the full price of the Player’s Guide will be running at RPGnow from 5/2 to 5/7.

* NEW AND IMPROVED DICE SYSTEM! As before, roll your attribute dice for a skill check and select the highest number rolled. However, any 6 rolled past the first adds 1 to the total, but if any 1’s are rolled, subtract 1 from the total.
–Dice Probability Table Included—

Your chance of rolling four 6’s with four dice is very small (1/1296) but I’ve seen it done, and that gives you a 9, before even adding skill ranks!

* NEW INTERROGATION RULES! As before, when trying to raise an NPC’s Posture to a target number, failing a Persuasion check lowers his Posture. However, the NPC can also “talk back” and make a Persuasion check against you! If he succeeds, he can lower his own Posture, too, which means, if he gets it down to 1, the interrogation is over—he has become totally uncooperative and has gone completely hostile!

* NEW RACIAL VULNERABILITIES! The reptilian Krissethi are more susceptible to being slowed by cold damage, the plant-like Erwani catch fire more easily, the insectoid Chiraktis are more sensitive to chemical attacks, the amoebic Omuls are more susceptible to irradiation from energy weapons, the large-eared Reln are more sensitive to sonic attacks, and the large-shelled Archaeloids are easier to hit with melee weapons when they’ve been knocked prone!

* NEW CHARACTER SHEETS! I re-designed the original character sheets, and artist John Fell added an amazing graphical polish. These are the coolest character sheets I’ve seen for an RPG!

* NEW CHARACTER SHEET PDF FORM! I designed a version of the new character sheet that has entry fields, so you can type in your details, save the form, print it out, and access it later when your character levels up or gains new items!
