Tyranny and cruelty have spread across the galaxy, and only you can stop it!

Save the Universe is a sci-fi adventure roleplaying game in which the players create their own great galactic menace and then portray the brave heroes battling against it.

Will you be:

A relentless hunter, seeking revenge against the bloodthirsty admiral who bombed your home planet into oblivion?

A fallen noble, building a rebellion by forging interstellar alliances between feuding noble families?

A mysterious seer, searching for cosmic secrets, hoping to find a way to stop a plague of civilization-devouring alien insects?

By the time the pizza is gone, you’ll have an epic saga and a cast of characters. Then you can jump right into the action, with simple, story-focused rules that reduce prep time and reward players for pursuing their personal dramas.

Charge your blaster. Board your starship. Set your course.

Save the Universe.

(French translations of hero, saga, and ship sheets graciously provided by Kalysto.)

Save the universe est jeu de rôle permettant d’émuler du space opera, façon Guerre des étoiles. Du moins c’est dans ce cadre que je l’ai découvert, mais sa proposition est sensiblement plus large : de l’aventure spatiale où la Résistance [...]

The actual play system is very narrative unfortunately, but there's enough content here on 'how to make an evil empire' that the product is still very fun and useful. [...]

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.
