For the month of June, every penny we make on Itch will be donated to the Black Lives Matter global network and Unicorn Riot. 

There are few things deadlier than space. From the first moments humanity hurled itself out into the dark, people have died in its cold and lonely void. But there’s no rest to be found among the stars. Beyond the edges of our planet, spirits cannot pass on, and the spectres of explorers past now haunt every corner of our star system. That’s where you come in. It’s your job to find ghosts, to contain them, bring them home Earth. It’s dirty, thankless, dangerous work, and more than a few ghosters find themselves joining their quarry. Still, it’s a living.

This is a system-neutral setting for tabletop RPGs. It gives you all the details on the world, the characters’ place within it, and even a suggested mini-campaign and adventures. You won’t find any rules, character sheets, or instructions to “Roll your Diplomacy” or “Take 2 Wounds”. This is intended to be a playground where you can use whatever system you and your group feels most comfortable with. This may mean it requires a little bit of preparation in terms of working out the necessary numbers, especially if you’re using a more rigid or statistic-focused system, but we promise: even if you just jump right in and make it up on the fly, you’ll have a great time.

Content Notes: Ghosts, Death, Violence, Grief, Isolation, Damnation, Cults, Industrial accidents, Murder, Conspiracy, Mind control, Human remains, Unethical science, Imprisonment, Gambling, Kidnapping, Existential bleakness
