Friday Feature: Strange Stars
+trey causey has recently released his much anticipated Strange Stars. Its a setting book for space adventures. Right now it is available in PDF at RPGNow and Trey is waiting on the proof for the print copy. I plan on grabbing a hard copy as soon as its available.
I think Strange Stars is amazing. It looks incredible. The artwork and layout are fantastic and pleasing to read. Trey's created a sandbox in space to tromp around in and the way the book is laid out, the information is a joy to read, easy to find to reference and compare.
It's nice to break away from the fantasy genre once in a while. To strap on a laser rifle instead of a longsword. Getting into fights with killer robots instead of orcs. And getting in trouble at the local bar...well, I guess some things don't change across genres.
Seriously consider getting this book. It's got an old time feel with new ideas. I think Trey has done an incredible job. I hope to get a future generation of Boris (my character in his Weird Adventures game) kicking it into hyperdrive, guns blasting while smoke a cheap cigar.
