Abattoir 8


Starfinder Compatibility Logo

From ENnie-award winning terror master Richard Pett and Creative Developer Sean Astin comes Abattoir 8, the first adventure out of Grimmerspace, the new Sci-Fi horror setting compatible with the StarfinderTM  Role-Playing game.

When a mysterious disaster leaves an orbiting agricultural space station silent and dark, the halted flow of food threatens nearby colonies with starvation, rioting, and desertion.

Investigating PCs find themselves trapped aboard the hellscape that is Abattoir 8.

To escape, they must reach the station’s control center by navigating treacherous half-mile high food processing silos plagued by maniacs, beasts, and berserk machinery.

Strap on your armor, charge your environment protections, and toss some extra magazines into your backpack. They might do you some good before this all ends.

Forget heroism… can you race through the pandemonium and escape in one piece?

Written for 4-6 characters of 1st-3rd level, Abattoir 8 typically finishes in two gaming sessions and introduces you to Grimmerspace or kicks off a home campaign... all with a bit more Splatter and Survival Horror than most Sci-Fi RPG adventures. So maybe bring a few extra bandages along. Or better yet, a mop.

We saved all the horror for the adventure, so you don’t hit any trying to run it.

In Abattoir 8, we give you everything you need to bring this afflicted agricultural station on the edge of colonized space to life before, during, and after the mission. Every important villain and significant NPC has a meaningful motivation, and we stacked the PDF with a host of handouts and simple tracking tools to help set the chilling mood and make GMing easy.


“[their work is] among the most rewarding, iconic, complex and thought-
provoking dungeon adventures I’ve read.”


“High quality. Strange, disturbing, repulsive ... awesome.”

“…brutal…highly-recommended horror…”

In this download, we also:

  • Introduce you to the lore of Grimmerspace, covering its major polities, races, and vying factions

  • Give you new constructs, new creatures, new technologies, and new weapons for your game

  • Provide four pregenerated 1st and 2nd level characters (an envoy, a mechanic, an operative and a soldier), so your players can leap right in and not slow down to level up

  • Hand you a free map pack that includes player versions of all the maps, already extracted for you to use on Discord, for play-by-post, or for other gaming tools

  • Give you the first look at the stellar cartography of the Gliding Rim Galaxy, home of the Grimmerspace setting

  • More than a free download of sci-fi horror set in Grimmerspace. Abattoir 8 is a plug-and-play location, complete with adventure seeds, ready to drop into any campaign.

This offer ends with the Grimmerspace Kickstarter

You can download Abattoir 8 for free, but only until our Kickstarter ends in June. After that, we plan to offer Kickstarter backers an expanded version of the adventure in both digital and print formats. If you want your free, digital-only copy of Abattoir 8, you need to download it now. 

New to the Starfinder Roleplaying Game? Grimmerspace backers will have the option of also purchasing the Starfinder Core Rulebook or the Starfinder Beginner Box as part of the Kickstarter.


Looking to turn up the dial on the science and horror in your science-fantasy Starfinder game? Look to Grimmerspace, if you dare. In a science-only horror galaxy invaded by magic, immortal mages bent on conquest tear through space-time from the other side of the universe only to collide with the Grimmers, gritty defenders, locked and loaded against any threat. ;It’s bullets versus fireballs when science and magic come to world-ending blows!

Hi, James!
Thank you for your interest. It is not defunct! It is unfortunately very late, mostly for pandemic-related reasons, but also because we added significant quantities of new material.

The expanded Xenofiles bestiary was already released to backers, is currently on Fantasy Grounds, and Roll20 is in the works. We're hard at work on the other books and hope to see the core rulebook in layout later this year.

If you aren't a backer and would like to stay abreast of developments, please consider joining our facebook group at

Thank you again for your continued interest and support.

Is this Grimmer Space ever coming out or is it defunct? Because it is that would be a shame. I'd buy it.

The adventure states that another scenario will be available - Scavenger's Voice. Is this going to be issued or no not going to be coming out?

anyone else having issues printing this - there seem to be lots of 'hidden' elements in the PDF that make it hard to print?

So we ran three print tests for you. One on an old laser, one on an old inkjet, and one on a new laser (a Canon color imageClass MF731Cdw) with no print issues. If you'd like to email us at with your specific print issue and error, we're happy to try and help.

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.
