Outbreak: Deep Space

Watermarked PDF


Outbreak: Deep Space is a Sci-Fi Survival Horror RPG that allows you to create your own nightmare world in the realm of Deep Space. Created using the same gritty, deadly, and unforgivable settings that you’d expect from the creators of Outbreak: Undead.

O:DS is a open world system that allows you to build 3 types of settings of Horror:


Infestation  Invasion  Transdimensional

Infestation -

Creatures who mutate or bend the laws of nature, be it man-made or extraterrestrial.

Invasion -

Aliens with vastly superior technology to our own. This isn't war, it's slaughter. 

Trans Dimensional -
Vast Horrors from another reality, bending time and space and twisting the minds of man in it's wake.

For Players:

  • Choose from a wide variety of Character options, even use yourself as a template to build off of for immediate immersion!
  • Fluid Chracter Advancements and Unique party Roles (be the 'morale center', or 'gun nut' of the group!).
  • Fully customizable gear options to make any weapon, armor or device your sci-fi imagination can devise!
  • Go on GM designated 'Missions' to earn Survival Points and unlock a Finale to your Survival Horror Adventure!

For GM's:

  • As your players generate 'RISK' with their actions, you can choose to use RISK to purchase a wide variety of hazards and upgrades during the game!
  • A simple Encounter Based System, which keeps gameplay either scripted and structured, or fast and loose!
  • Run Single Session Horrors or Sweeping Campaigns of Terror
  • Build Dread Slowly, or create action/adventure moments of gameplay!

Random Scenario Generators

No two games will ever be alike, as the ability to generate random scenario objectives, will allow a GM to experiment and weave narratives to link the randomly generated events together. Storytelling just got a lot easier now that you know the main plot points! The GM is always free to invent their own objectives and, more importantly, their own dramatic endings

We don't ask the Question *If* you're going to die. But *how* and *what will you accomplish* in that time?

Hello, is there any possibility of a free/quickstart guide to this particular system? Been interested in it for some time and have yet to find anything to help me make the decision to buy.

Mostly I'd like to know the games mechanics and how compatible this would be with other Outbreak material.

Hey Cody,

While we don't have a quickstart guide available for ODS you will be happy to know that the game is most like Outbreak: Undead.. 2nd Edition in regards to mechanics. In fact, this is the game that inspired us to need to do a 2nd Edition of the original game. So, with a bit of work you can make many things work between the two.

We are currently focused on finishing up the Outbreak: Undead.. 2nd Edition core books and once those have been released this system will be getting some love and attention again.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
