They Came from the Stars! is a tabletop role-playing game featuring retro science fiction and horror aesthetics. If you are fond of the classic movies from the 50-70’s this is the game for you. Play it as a cheesy movie from the 50’s; featuring rubber suited aliens with ray guns, or play is as a bone chilling horror movie with brain eating parasites overtaking the Earth.

They Came from the Stars! includes everything you need to play: an original and easy to learn ruleset, a premade adventure, a huge catalogue of classic and novel monsters, and a selection of pre-made characters for fast play. Load up on 20-sided, 8-sided and 4-sided dice and start adventuring.

They Came from the Stars! fits shorter adventures, about the story span of a full length movie. Relive you favourite B-horror movie! Experience the terror of gruesome creatures from beyond! Combat in They Came from the Stars! can be very dangerous, since the players are dealing with interdimensional horrors and the like. Thankfully character creation is very quick.

The rule system is an original one based around a 20-sided dice and the ability to roll under or equal to a given value. There are rules for scare and shock, moving about in space and dealing with the extraordinary abilities of alien beings.

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.
