 “The Space War is Over” is a game about surviving the harsh beauty of space, building a spacecraft out of junk, making unlikely friends and healing from the costs of war.

In this seven-page roleplaying game, players take on the roles of Astronauts from two rival Star Fleets, stranded far from home in their wrecked battleship, who form a shaky truce to scavenge ship modules and assemble a craft that can take them home. The text of the game includes:

  • Character Readouts that lets each player make unique Astronaut PCs from different factions, species, ships and crew ranks, with their own unique backgrounds, talents and emotional baggage.
  •  Ship Module Diagrams that can be combined in various arrangement to create  your own bizarre patchwork spacecraft.
  • GM-free mechanics for roleplaying scenes of rescue, sabotage, disaster, hostility,   intimacy, tension and wonder as you drift between the stars and planets.
  • Allusions to Egyptian Mythology.

To play "The Space War is Over", you'll need 2-6 players, print-outs of the game pages and a full set of Polyhedral Dice.
