The Sepulchre Await...

The Golgotha. Even the names conjure images of wonder and great danger: the Paradox Spire, the Grove, the Resurrection Hive, the Delphia, the Glass Labyrinth...

Travel far beyond the bloated worlds of the inner machine planets, past the verdant and colourful pleasure worlds, past the worn out military rings where sanctioned wars rage endlessly, past even the fringe systems where separatists build their power, on into the outer dark where other races more ancient than humanity have long held sway, that is where the Golgotha lie. Ancient relics of long-dead empires, these mausoleums are riddled with countermeasures and deadly remains, not to mention bizarre alien species. Why would you choose to go there? Because Golgotha hold the secrets of unknown inhuman cultures within their echoing halls - ancient, lost technology that the Overseers, caretakers of the Human Sphere, mysteriously covet. Steal enough from the tombs and in exchange the Overseers will boost your body and mind, making you more than human, more than enough to complete your destiny.

How do you find a Golgotha? First, you need to acquire a star map – no easy feat unless you can persuade the Overseers to part with one. Once you have it, you must travel across the void using the fractures, the subspace network of cracks in space-time that allows faster than light travel. The Tomb Worlds lie at the fringe of known space where the fractures are hard to navigate, and where the risk of pirates awaiting your arrival is ever-present. Once you get there, the dangers are not over. The Golgotha lay hidden within the fringes of the Everwar, that vast and ancient conflict between the mysterious Erix Absolution and the powerful Concordant of Shelz. This area is off-limits to humans, so extreme care is a deadly necessity, and there remains a constant threat of discovery. Still, the potential reward is so great that Scavengers will readily risk the dangers of the void to make the journey.

You and your companions are on one of those vessels, a Portal Ship gliding down the tessellated streams of the fractureway, following esoteric directions on an ancient map. Soon the blue glow of the passage will crack, the stars will return, and you will be free to leave. As you move further in-system, the Golgotha fills the view plates. What waits within? Only time will tell.

Welcome to Golgotha...

Welcome to the future. Golgotha is a game of exploration and danger in mysterious, dead installations at the edges of humanity’s interstellar sphere. The players take on the roles of a crew of Scavengers who seek out, penetrate and rob these ancient lost structures, known collectively as the Golgotha. To those lucky enough to survive the risks, arifacts await – lost technology that the mysterious Overseers who rule the Human Sphere covet. Find something of value and in return the Overseers will boost your body, allowing you to fi nally seek that revenge you have always dreamed of…


Complete your destiny, or die trying.


An stand-alone OSR game of exploration and discovery using the Black Hack (note: the Black Hack is not required to play this game).

Do you have an email I could send spelling/grammar issues to? I love the book and am planning a campaign, but I'd assume you'd want to fix the word errors before more people drop $47 on the POD and end up with print errors.

Has the list of issues been sent? And, if so, when can we expect the file to be updated?

Hi there, to be fair there are only a couple of typos, the rest are stylistical comments which are more subjective. If you look at the full sized preview that will give you a sense of the quality of the rest of the book.

It uses a modified version of the second edition. But heavily adapted for the game.

Is it possible to get more than a single page in the preview? I think I want to buy this, but would be good to read a bit more about it first.

Hi there, yeah it is supposed to show 20 pages but for some reason isn't! I've asked DTRPG to look into it...

Very intrigued by this one. But your preview only displays the front cover for some reason. I'd like to get a better look at the art and layout. As well as some of the rules, to see how you implemented The Black Hack. I'll be watching for a more revealing preview for now.

Ditto. Would like to see more than the front cover.

Do you need Black Hack to play? Is this "Golgotha" as in "Place of the Skull"?

Sorry, preview isn't working for some reason. I'll look at that today.

No need for the black hack (apart from it's awesome and you should buy it), Golgotha is self contained and complete.

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.
