The New Year is a great time to pick up a New Game, so we've marked this digital title down by 25%! To find more savings, visit our New Year, New Game sale page.

Two hundred years from now what should be the shining beacon of the future is instead cloaked in conspiracy and horror. Humankind has expanded throughout the solar system, and there it has discovered mysteries older than humanity.

The culture has shattered into myriad subcultures; nation-states are the hollow shells of what they once were. Corporations and other groups wage small-scale wars in the streets or in space. Bioengineered horrors left over from these conflicts stalk the hulls of ruined stations and abandoned colonies.

But for an enterprising team willing to brave the horrors, there’s always a profit to be made.

Shadows Over Sol is a hard science fiction horror roleplaying game using the Saga Machine system. Its features include:

  • Discover the secrets of the Sol system, with multiple GM options to keep players on their toes.
  • Support for a wide spectrum of play in the science fiction and horror genres.
  • A fully-realized setting with a detailed breakdown of both social dynamics and the solar system, from Mercury to the Oort Cloud.
  • Systems for personal combat, engineering, hacking and more!

Character sheets are available here. Electronic files come in PDF, MOBI and EPUB formats.

It appears that DriveThruRPG is having some sort of issue with one of their servers today. I'm going to reupload the PDF to see if that fixes the problem. In the meantime, or if you still have issues, feel free to send me a message through our company contact form and I will personally make sure that you get your copy of the game.

Are there scenarios included with the rules ?

There is one scenario included with the core. There is also a free second scenario included in the Quick-Start, and we have two adventure supplements on the way.

So, being that the GM screen is available as about making this POD as well?

That's our plan! We mention at the bottom of the description: "Print copies will be made available in the coming weeks."

Basically, we need to order and review a printing proof before we make it available POD. The first printing proof we ordered for the core game needed some corrections, so we've made the corrections and ordered a second one for approval. On the other hand, the first printing proof of the GM Screen was OK, which it why it was approved for POD before the core game.

Assuming the second printing proof of the core is OK, expect it to go POD in the next week or two.

Looks like that was some sort of bug. Either way, I think I've fixed it now. Let me know if you still have the issue after refreshing the page in your browser.

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.
