Xenopolitan is an RPG about everyday life in an alien metropolis. Live the life of an extraterrestrial person with real world problems. Play as a human or extraterrestrial entrepreneur, student, artist, social worker, politician, reporter, criminal, detective, or anything else, and experience life in this galactic futurescape.

Setting: The year is 2099. Ingress is a city with 90 million people from thousands of different species and planets. It flies in the skies above Earth and is a hub for extraterrestrials conducting business with various Earthling corporations and governments. Players are denizens of this sprawling, cosmopolitan city, and their backgrounds and goals can be as diverse as the city’s population.

System: Xenopolitan is a complete game based on the popular Fudge system. The rules are fast, flexible, and easy to learn. The broad skill system enables game masters and players to tell a wide variety of stories and create characters from all walks of life. Players might be reporters for a media corporation, members of a rock band, or partners in a law firm. The possibilities are as vast as real life.


  • Players can easily create their own extraterrestrial species by combining various advantages, drawbacks, and psychic powers. Want to play a parasitic bacteria or a being of pure energy? It’s quickly done with Xenopolitan’s fun, creative character creation system.

  • Xenopolitan’s conflict resolution system can generate non-binary results with interesting complications and encourages active participation from players.

  • Xenopolitan supports many different styles of play and includes numerous story ideas for one-shot sessions or full campaigns.

  • Pages upon pages of groovy artwork with cool aliens!

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.
