Sol Beyond Earth


Dive into a vivid retrofuturistic universe where the space race never ceased!

It's 2090, and humanity's reach spans the entire solar system. Earth is the hub of a united civilization. Mars thrives, the Moon is bustling, and the gas giants' moons hum with activity.

But survival beyond Earth is no cakewalk. Radiation, micrometeoroids, and resource disputes test your mettle. You're an astronaut, a scientist, a pilot - and your skills are humanity's last hope.

Sol Beyond Earth delivers a rules-light setting-heavy streamlined gaming experience. It's ready to play, featuring situational skill rolls instead of numeric statistics.

Explore the diverse colonies of a thriving solar system, confront challenges, navigate politics, and forge your destiny among the stars.

Based on 24XX SRD by Jason Tocci.

The “Space Combat” section makes a reference on p.38 to “regular combat, with rounds and action sequences” — but there doesn’t seem to be a section in the book on such regular combat (beyond the existence of Close-Quarters Combat as a skill)?

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.
