Void Empires : 2750

Void Empires: 2750 is a game about science fiction adventures.  The game ultimately revolves around a group people creating characters and having adventures such as: post-apocalyptic survival scrounging, battling it out with psi-blades and psi powers, maurading bug-alien hives, and epic battles in vehicles, mechanized walkers, and space craft.  Void Empires: 2750 aims to provide a toolkit that supports any of these adventures, for use either with the native setting or a setting of your creation.

Despite the toolkit approach of Void Empires: 2750, there are some core concepts that define the overall tone of the mechanics, technology, and the native setting. 

It’s 2750 – The Known Quadrant, Worlds & Aliens

Humanity has explored the stars and met sentient alien races. Strangely some that bear a significant resemblance to themselves, prompting all sort of ‘progenitor-race’ or ‘ancients’ theories.  Regardless, humanity has fought, made and broke alliances, created and lost colonies. All this is (mostly) true for the other alien races as well.  Along with humanity, there are a few alien races that exist in significant numbers, but there are also dozens of aliens that have only 1 planet to their name (and sometimes even share that planet with another sentient race). All this creates a rich environment to allow players to play as non-humans, even creating their own race.

Design Principles

Simple system, deep customization. 5 attributes, 2d6 plus modifiers vs Target for almost everything. However, there are tons of options for customization - from skills to augmentation to vehicles/craft. So hopefully, you’re not feeling like a redundant role if there are 3 or even 5 other players. Many times I felt a system gave you simplicity at the cost of character/class/role identity and customization. I tried to avoid that.

Meaningful options - and a wide variety of them. These choices extend from skills, equipment, agumentation and psionics, to spacecraft, vehicles and walkers/mechs. Whether in or out of combat/drama, the aim was to expand the "meta" so the players are not met with 1 or 2 options, with the remainder being a "trap".  You can play Space Gandalf/super psionicist, an an ex-life coach with super charisma, or a grizzled veteran ex space marine.... it was my aim that they can all have a meaningful mechanical impact.

Tropes and consistency!  Lots of tropes from classic space opera... Cybertech, psionics, space ships, shields, fighters, battleships, mechs, wild west in space and so on.  With a guiding principle being internal consistency (some refer to it as 'hard scifi'). This is not about being consistent with today's technology, but rather being internally consistent as to maintain the immersion of a coherent universe.

So… what or who do I create?

This is completely up to you! There are 3 ‘scales’ to the game: personal, vehiclular, and spacecraft.  If you and your group see yourselves mostly taking part in personal and spacecraft play, then creating a VTOL or mechanized warwalker pilot may not be ideal… or who knows, it could be great to play a “displaced” character in that regard – have fun! :)

What you get in these 345 pages:

  • A setting that is easily customizable to match your preferred scifi future
  • Detailed rules for character creation and customization
  • Rules for personal and vehicle/craft scale combat that support mind's eye and miniature combat
  • Rich customization rules for characters, weapons, power armour, vehicles, warwalkers (mechs), and spacecraft. Hundreds of options.
  • Minigame rules for interstellar trade and zero-g/atmosphere racing

This book is a work in progress and I hope to keep it constantly updated. Thank you all for your support for this solo project and your great feedback has been, and always is, appreciated!

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.
