The Expanse RPG Quickstart


Don't Wait For A Countdown. Launch Right Into the Action.

We've got the crew assembled and ready. Strap into your ship and go full-burn toward adventure across the Solar System. The Expanse Roleplaying Game uses the AGE system to explore the science fiction universe created by James S. A. Corey. 

The Expanse RPG Quickstart includes everything you and your friends need to play your first game except some six-sided dice and pencils: condensed rules to help you learn how to play, six pre-generated characters ready for action, and Cupbearer—a complete adventure that sends the crew on a job aboard Ganymede Station.


An Expanse RPG adventure suitable for a crew of 3-6 characters, levels 1–3.

What starts out as a fairly simple job to find and recover the wayward son of a wealthy corporate family gets complicated when the crew discovers their target is involved with a powerful crime lord and devised his own way out—one that doesn't involve returning to his family.

Using the full rules in The Expanse Roleplaying Game, you can continue your adventures beyond this Quickstart mission or devise an entirely new campaign.

Awesome Quickstart with just one problem. I am missing maps for the campaign, the printout does contain at least one map (the Appartement) but the PDF does not. I would love to see more digital maps for the adventure's.

When printing the pre-gens the Chao Zhang Sokolov image prints upside down.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know why/how this was published through DM's Guild?
I mean, sure it's an RPG, but I was under the impression DM's Guild was strict to D&D products.

What’s changed between 1.0 and 1.2? Can we get a change log for future updates?

Given there are no rules for recovering lost Fortune (or healing adverse conditions), I am wondering how the pregenerated characters are supposed to live through the adventure if a fight breaks out. Is this intentional?

I am very impressed with the Quickstart. The rules are similar enough to Modern AGE that you might even be able to make a character for The Expanse if you're careful. Good Work, Green Ronin! Now, get the PDF out toot-sweet! 8-)

They say November for the PDF and January for the print version, but I'll bet you can pick something up next month at Gen-Con.

Great to see the AGE system getting some love... went nearly 2 years between Wil Wheaton running his game and anything other than Blue Rose being released.. :)

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.
