Tiny Frontiers is a minimalist roleplaying game, designed for fast character creation, swift action resolution, and maximum flexibility.


Using the rules within this rulebook, you and your friends will be able to explore the unknown reaches of faraway galaxies, topple evil interstellar empires, swash and buckle with vicious space pirates, and battle in colossal mechs above crumbling planets.


The book also contains 16 "micro-settings", small, evocative settings designed by RPG industry veterans, best-selling fiction authors, and many more top-level contributors!


So go forth, and explore!

Interested in purchasing this game, but I am not interested in .pdf. I see there was some POD talk, and at one point, in actual print?

Any chance there is a way to get this in print still?

Thanks!

Need some clarity on the section on sleeping. When/how do PC's sleep? How do we know if they got one hour or four? Does the party just decide to sleep (when not in combat) and the GM can just mess with them to move the plot forward? What is a 'day' if PC needs at least 4-hours/day?

Hi! Alan here!

There are no set rules around what a "Day" is or how to tell how much time has passed. That is the purview of the GM. The Party can just decide when to sleep and the GM could choose to have them ambushed if the GM wanted. The goal is fun and a good story together, so we trust the GM and the players to work that out as they see fit.

Was looking around for a rules light system for a bunch of rules light players I've found... ;) and stumbled across your lovely system!

I noticed, however, that when you uncheck "background" in the layers function that it only affects pages 1 and 2, the rest of the document still retains the background which in some instances makes it a little hard for me to read.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't see how many hit points star ships get.

Love the system, but the background imagery on all the pages is so dark it really burns through ink/toner. Any chance of getting a version with a light background?

Yes! That is something we're working on currently getting squared away!

A member of my gaming group hit the nail on the head when he said "It's simple without being stupid." The system is easy to learn (less than an hour, maybe 30 minutes) and is designed so you can hit the ground running, but it's nuanced enough that every character feels unique and fleshed out. I especially liked the ship rules, which give everyone something to do during a space battle (a big problem in some other games). The micro-settings are all very well done and really showcase the possibilities for the game. I hope to see more done with the Psionics system and Xenotech in the future but I can't think of anything that is really missing from the rules or settings. In the end it's a great rules light game that has plenty of room to grow.

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.
