I’m working on a new supplement for Extreme Future, the sci-fi role-playing game, it was released a few days ago and is already selling well. The new supplement will probably be based around a spaceship.
The spaceship will be something like a freighter or scientific exploration spaceship. It’ll be a small one; the perfect size for a group of adventurers to use it as a base and means of transport combined.
I’m planning to include all the usual goodies, including deck plans, a technical readout and lots of other detail, but I’ll also include some ideas about how it can be integrated into an ongoing sci-fi role-playing campaign game.
The first stage for me is to come up with a beautiful 3D render of the hull of the spaceship, and perhaps some concept art and some modeling of interior detail. As usual I’ll be posting lots of renders of it as a work in progress, before finally releasing the supplement, so many that regular readers of the blog will probably soon be sick of the sight of the spaceship.
It’s great to have the nuts and bolts of a huge and versatile science fiction, space opera setting where I can easily insert the hig-tech equipment I come up with. One of the beauties of sci-fi role playing is all the robots, spaceships, blasters and other assorted hardware that the players can choose for their adventurers, so take a look at the core rules for Extreme Future, the sci-fi role-playing game, which already has everything necessary for spaceship design, and slot the new spaceship in as soon as it’s done.
