Welcome to the Space Ace Brigade.
The galactic gig economy is alive and thriving. The Galaxy is chock full of things that need doing, anomalies that need exploring, and pickles that need unpickling.
You, dear recruits, are just the ones to do them! You won't live to regret your choice… Mostly competent and highly motivated is good enough in our books. Remember, the contract is sacred, your debts are real, and the alternatives ain't that great. So buck up and strap in! Adventure Awaits!
Space Aces is an homage to an undying love of happy, hopeful, & campy Sci Fi. A modular, lightweight, optimistic sci-fi tabletop adventure game toolbox for GM-led groups, co-op & solo play. Packed with over 75 tables, oracles & procedural generators for creating near-endless light-hearted rollicking romps through space a la Star Trek meets Futurama meets Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.
Space Aces: TNG (The New Guidebook) features simple, sleek, flexible rules with easy & collaborative madlibs spark table style mission generation complete with a twist.
Space Aces utilizes a super simple D20 & D6 rolling system that gives you lots of interesting & evocative results to rolls. A Success can still result in a Complication, and a Failure can still result in a Benefit. Ramp up difficulty, tension, and consequences as the mission goes on with the Heat Level meter. The system features OSR style space adventures with FKR simplicity and PBTA low-prep emergent gameplay that easily supports group, co-op, & solo play!
