SPACE DUNGEON Book I: Starsailors and Psionics


SPACE DUNGEON combines old-school feel with the vibe of Golden Age SF.

It is a Science Fiction Role-Playing Game (SFRPG) standing proudly in the tradition of the Old School Revival (OSR) and is released under the terms of the Open Game License (OGL).

It is my personal answer to the speculative question: "What would have happened had the authors of the Original Role-Playing Game been avid fans of Golden Age science fiction instead of fantasy?"

BOOK I: STARSAILORS AND PSIONICS contains all the rules for character creation. It is the only book required for players.

Attractive and appealing features of SPACE DUNGEON include:

  • 5 traditional character classes, reimagined for SF: Trooper, Templar, Medic, Psi-Sensitive, and Rogue;
  • 5 traditional character species, translated into an SF context: Human, Android, Delta, Alpha, and Half-Alpha;
  • 60 psionic techniques for Psi-Sensitives to learn and activate;
  • A style of presentation reminiscent of old-school RPGs: text that talks up, not down, to you;
  • Classical feel combined with updated and streamlined mechanics;
  • An entire SF RPG in 3 slim booklets with no filler and no wasted space.

Print versions (3 separate booklets or a one-volume edition) are available through; see our website for links.

An official SPACE DUNGEON starsailor record sheet is also available at our website.

Is 3rd-Party-Publishing allowed? If so, what should a 3rd-party-publisher adhere to?

Hello Kai, thanks for your interest. Yes, I'm fine with 3rd party publishing, as long as the product is clearly labelled so it can't be confused with "official" Furious Rabbit Productions content, and as long as you keep it PG-13!

Hey there Richard.

I'm a happy customer, owning all three 'chapters' of your system. Are there any plans for additional products for this? I checked your website and didn't see anything as to such.

Sorry Chris, just saw this! Thanks for the kind words. I do have plans, but no clear timelines at the moment. It depends on how demanding my day job will be over the next few months.

BOOK III: VOYAGES AMONG THE STARS (the GM book) will be available at the end of April at the latest; BOOK II: XENOZOA AND UNCOMMON TECHNOLOGY (the "monsters and treasures" book) will be available at the end of May at the latest. They're both already written; I just want to catch as many typos as possible before I release them. Thanks for your interest!

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.
