The Orion Spur and Surrounds Map Teaser

Welcome to Orion's Spur, the backdrop for a brand new science fiction setting for Monte Cook Games' Cypher System.  This Starter Kit will allow you to create Tier 1 Cypher System characters in one of five playable species.  A modified version of the standard character sentence gives meaning to both your Species and where you come from (with the addition of Origins).  Combined with 30 pages of setting material including rumors and adventure seeds, this Starter Kit, when combined with the Revised Cypher System Rulebook (which is required to play this game), has everything you need to begin exploring the galaxy of Hope's Horizon.

Will you play as a Grimalkine Hunter from Cia'tune who Infiltrates, seeking to bring down an underground criminal organization providing unwilling test subjects for cutting edge cybernetic replacement testing by a corporation that is trying to beat its competitors to market?  Perhaps you're a Human Diplomat from Iliar who Commands Mental Powers trying to repair relations with an alien race despite forces within and without your own government trying to hinder or stop your efforts?  Maybe you're a Thelvae Rover from the Arkh who Employs Magnetism that is trying to track down what happened to their father who took an exploratory party into an uncharted system in Freespace and never returned?  It's a big galaxy, with lots of stories to tell. Hope's Horizon can help you tell them all. Join us, and leave your mark on Hope's Horizon.

However, if you want more, you can get started even faster by downloading the free introductory adventure: The Faralon Score.  Written with this setting specifically in mind, it will get your players started immediately by dropping them into one of the notable events in recent history on the setting's timeline.  What will you do when you're caught between a terrorist cell and a multi-planetary pharmaceutical corporation?

There's even more coming!  We at Angel's Citadel are already beginning work on the Hope's Horizon Core Rulebook which will allow characters up to Tier 6, expand the setting, add additional equipment and rules such as vehicles and vehicle and starship combat, and more.  And that's only the beginning.  More worlds, more species, more... well, more are on their way.  Strap yourselves in and get ready to launch into Hope's Horizon!

I have to say that this is one solid product. Attention to detail and the fact that everything within this document supports the very foundation of the Cypher System and that should speak volumes. This is just a starter kit for setting and I have to say that it is full to the brim with possibilities. As a GM it's inspiring, as a player can someone please run this. The ideas and presentations are second to none. Do yourself a favor and add Hope’s Horizon to your digital catalog. This is a must-have set of tools that not only stand on its own but can surely advance and support any setting you want to adventure in the depths of space.

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.
