It's rayguns, aliens and swashbuckling amongst the stars! Astounding Interplanetary Adventures is a minimalist game of pulp sci-fi inspired by serials like Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers. Using the rules-lite system introduced in In Darkest Warrens, these few pages have everything you need to play a fun romp through space, including aliens, rocket ships and setting information. 

All you need is some friends, some six-sides dice and an imagination to begin your life of heroism. Perhaps you want to be a daring pilot, a brave soldier or even a scientist who can build robots to help you out! With AIA it's quick and easy to get to the table and start playing. 

What's included:

  • 5 classes: soldier, noble, pilot, scientist, and athlete
  • Alien bestiary
  • Roll random planets
  • Factions
  • Planets
  • Thrills and spills!

We had a short one shot in this game and all of us realy liked it.
To be honest, I chnaged the basic system a little adapting the classes to the ones in Darkest Warrens and adding some more classes. I also created some races by using the rules about Races from Darkest Warrens to create some Alien plyer races and som robot player races. What would space opera be without Chewbacca and C3P0. But the system is realy great!! The system to have the lowest number on the strongest attribute confused some of the players in the begining but just for some minutes. The gamplay itself was totally smooth and realy great!

This looks really cool, but im confused about how the rolls work. It says to succeed at a roll, i need to meet or exceed the relevant ability score. SO, does that mean I should put a lower number (3+) on the ability i want to my strongest?

Yes you have to put the lowest number on the ability which should be your strongest.! Confusing in the beginning but it works really good!

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.
