Pocket Space RPG is a complete role-playing game for a fun night of space exploration and taking control of your fate amongst the stars. Using only one d6, Pocket Space RPG was created for those times when someone cancels on game night and the rest of the group is wondering what to do. It was also created with new or young players in mind. Easy and straight forward rules that let you get playing in no time. No deep character generation, clunky combat rules, or complex space combat to bog down the game play. Using the d6 task rule, nothing is impossible with this game. The amount of planets, aliens, and missions are nearly endless in a single session of fast action Pocket Space RPG!

  • Rules for generating Alien Characters with 36 different Alien Abilities.
  • Equipment, Technology and Hobbies.
  • Starships and Starship Combat, with everyone onboard contributing to the action!

  • 2 Options for creating Planetary Systems that can be used together.
  • Rules for creating Worlds, including Gas Planets, Asteroid Belts, Moons, and Unique Anomalies.

  • 2 Subgenres, Galactic Exploration and Merchants & Mercenaries with Mission Generators for both.
  • Structure Generator with traps and location features for starships, space stations, alien worlds, and caves.
  • Alien Animal creation rules for food adaption, combat skill and hit points as well as unique animal abilities.
  • Misc. Tables for names, personalities, room types, and sci-fi things.
  • Pocket Master Tips to help you navigate your players into the unknown!

I have a question concerning spaceship combat: The enemy spaceships always attack BEFORE the gunnery position? Or is there some kind of initiative?

My earlier design had an initiative step and it made space combat more complicated when choosing when to be offensive and defensive. I have considered adding a sentence that says all damage is done simultaneously to show combat in a more abstract way, spanning an amount of time (kinda like older D&D where a round of combat would be a series of attacks, blocks and ultimately resulting in HP loss. Not a single swing of a weapon). My goal is always to make the game fun, and maybe having the enemy attack first goes against that goal. I will continue to look at it and see if it needs to be changed. Thanks for the question. Space combat has been a real challenge and I want to make sure I get it as right and ultimately fun without being too complicated (which it already is compared to other parts of the game since it involves multiple characters working together).

Well, you have knocked it out of the park. In all sci-fi RPGs the main problem was the space fights. They were either way too complex to bother with, or only the pilot did something. But this "Assigned to positions" thing is awesome, everyone is useful.

I really like your cover art. Simple yet evocative. It immediately captured by eye.

Thanks! I like easy to print, easy to grasp art that doesn’t break the printer ink if someone wants to print it out. Same goes for the products themselves.

Hello Brandon. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I'm a big fan of Pocket Fantasy and I'm eager to try this new game and genre. I'm sure Pocket Space is going to be also a great success. I will try to leave a review as soon as I can. Looking forward to the new "Pocket horror RPG". ;)

Format
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.
