A Return (A Descent, A Dissent) To Form

Based on the hit game What's So Cool About Outer Space? but with the following innovations:

  • A new non-method for character generation!
  • Six pre-made characters implying a terrible and occult outer-space autocracy or something!
  • HP and damage! Death and dying!
  • Advancement, or so!
  • A gesture at enemies!
  • Some public-domain art I found!

This is an ashcan version. In this case, "ashcan" means it's probably not very good. I thought you should know.

I like the words space makes. Yours and



The first game I've read that fulfills the meaning of HP as luck by making Luck as HP.

in fullness of candor, both barons of braunstein and neoclassical geek revival do this too haha


I really need to get my hands on NGR.
