Galaxies in Peril Core Rulebook

ADD TO WISHLIST >

Galaxies in Peril is a tabletop roleplaying game about a team of superheroes just starting out. A strange structure has pierced our reality and turned out world upside down. The laws of physics no longer apply to a chosen few, and not all of them choose to use their newfound abilities for good. Creatures from myth & legend begin to wake, hidden civilizations reveal themselves, and cosmic entities turn their attention to our pale blue dot as factions race to investigate or lay claim to our world.

Galaxies in Peril is a complete, stand-alone gamebook that uses the award winning Forged in the Dark system. In this book you will find:

  • Rules to create any superhero character, with any set of powers you can think of, that will still work and feel effective regardless of the other superhero characters on the team.
  • Rules to create a team of detectives, explorers, or rebels. Detectives take cases from clients that need help. Explorers go on expeditions and flesh out the world. Rebels take the fight to the villains & factions in power in an effort to create lasting change.
  • Quick generation tables to help come up with golden and silver-age style expeditions, jobs & clients that will make a detective’s head spin, and objects of power that can kick off a quick adventure or be the center of an entire campaign.
  • 31 factions rife with characters and motivations that set them on a collision course with any heroes daring enough to get in their way.
  • 48 stickers of fantastic locations & events and four maps to stick them on to both drive play at the table and generate a lasting artifact to memorialize your campaign.

Is this compatible with Worlds in Peril?

Do we know if there are plans for physical prints (outside of the original Kickstarter)?

Character sheets? I have the physical book from kick starter.
No character sheets beyond the one Agent example sheet?
No group sheets except the example sheet?

Where can we get printable PC sheets for use at a physical real world table?

I contacted the publisher and have received the reference sheets.
If anyone else is needing them, their contact email is in the physical book.

Hey, unfortunately you never responded to me regarding the reference sheets. Would you be able to send them, if you still have them? Because I couldn't find it anywhere!

In the Occultist playbook, under Ritual, the table says "Roll 1d6 with disadvantage." But I can't find anything about "rolling with disadvantage" in the book. What does that mean?

In the core book, the Inventor states “The Inventor earns xp when they address a challenge with logic or got into trouble because of their curiosity.”

However, when looking at the Reference Sheet doc, the XP triggers for The Agent and The Inventor both say “You addressed a challenge with ELEGANCE or added tension to a scene”. Then, it seems that all of the XP triggers for the following sheets are misattributed by one. This could cause for some confusion.

Any chance of some form-fillable sheets in the future?

The PDF seems pretty good so far, and I like the included maps/stickers.

My only complaint is that the bookmarks seem really disorganised after chapter 2. They start off as a mostly organised tree that mirrors the table of contents, and then about half-way down they just stop being organised. Do you have any plans to fix that?

Weird, I was sure I posted a comment here. I'm picking up the PDF today but I'd eventually like a physical copy because I am testing the load bearing capacity of my home's floors. I seem to recall Worlds in Peril was also sold through a Canadian retailer: is that true for this as well?

Retailers can grab it via Indie Press Revolution. If they stock indie rpgs then they can probably order it if they haven't already!

In the reference sheet, Agent and Inventor's XP conditions are ELEGANCE, is this correct?

No, the book is correct. I'll fix that next time in the files.

How does this product compare with the RPG "Worlds in Peril" ? — How does it contrast?

Worlds in Peril is a Powered by the Apocalypse game. It doesn't contain any setting information.

Galaxies in Peril is a Forged in the Dark game and sets up a modern setting with a lot of factions, NPCs, and has a bunch of content generation tools.

I bought the PDF here...but when I opened the PDFs for the core rulebook on my machine, some of the margins are cut off so that I lost parts of a few sidebars. Pages 141 and 142, for example. The game looks very cool, though!

Question -- if we want to purchase this in print later, would it be possible to order the PDF now and get a discount on the physical book when it comes out?

Also, if you know at this point, for how much are you going to be selling the physical book?

Sorry, I didn't see the website listing earlier. For those who are interested, the hardcover pre-order is going for $79 (Canadian) on the site.

I'll be putting it up for sale on our website at samjokopublishing.com by next week. If you want purchase it there I can discount the physical book for you in the future. The issue is DrivethruRPG takes 35% of any sales made on their site.

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.
