Stillfleet is a new tabletop RPG about exploring ruined spacecraft—hulks—and habitable earth-like planets, cut off from contact with Terra for decades or centuries—rocks.

This 46-page module—our first—contains the rules for playing the 6 basic classes and 12 basic species in Stillfleet, along with three optional rules for generating unique character backgrounds and all of the basic weapons and armor. There are space bears, giant bugs, salamanderoids, haunted double-techno-"elves," and grenades.

Download the Quickstart (pay what you want!) for the game's core rules and eight pregenerated characters.

From the book, an example of real play:

In the back of a factory for growing medicinal fungi on the minor province of Carlivago, Hune (a provincial stillrijder) watches as his party’s witness calmly explains to a quartet of thugs with badges that they were not in fact hacking into the Pharmacological Guild’s database. (They were.)

The witness rolls her high CHA/control (deceive) against the gendarmes’ WIL/resist other, a d8. Feeling confident, she does not boost this check—and promptly rolls a 2. The gendarme capetan gets a 3, meaning that he sees through her lies. The other thugs move to put the party’s banshee into manacles…

Everyone rolls MOV/initiate to determine the order of events that follow. Hune gets a 9 and acts first. He needs to prevent these gendarmes from disrupting the party’s mission—to stamp out a mi-go conspiracy here on Carlivago—and unlike the witness, he is eager to burn GRT.

Hune’s player tells the GM that he is going to use double tap to attack the nearest gendarme twice with his exosuit’s bone-crushing force fists. He must spend 10 total GRT (6 to attack twice, and 2 for each powered attack). That’s a large percentage of his GRT.

Hune rolls COM/attack (a d12) twice, getting a 7 and an 8. The hapless thug rolls MOV/dodge (a d8) twice, getting a 5 (a failure, being less than a 7) and an 8 (also a failure, because Hune was the initiator of the action and so wins the tie).

Hune now gets to roll 2d20 to determine how much damage his force fists deal. He can see that the gendarme is wearing bend (plastic) armor, and he has no idea how much HEA this opponent has. He considers burning his remaining 6 GRT to boost each of his damage rolls by +3, guaranteeing at least 8 damage (and probably much more).

Opting for a more dramatic conclusion, however, Hune chooses to use the power slay. He burns his final 6 GRT and rolls dCOM again, looking for a 6 or higher. With a roll of 10, he’s in the clear: Hune’s force fists punch the hapless gendarme’s head clean off of his body, no damage roll required…

"Xenotheoretically oriented Archivists are split as to whether shoodtha are Escheresque in origin; no evidence exists either way, and the xenos themselves claim to have forgotten."

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.
