FRONTIER - Black Zephyr
by Ion P. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/04/2016 04:15:25

A great introductory starter kit for the FRONTIER cosmology. The Black Zephyr is designed as a modular story that can be easily be played by both experienced and inexperienced Gamemaster. Depending on the right set of pace and atmosphere it can stretch from acting in a colorful Star wars adventure to the complete alien darkness of "Pitch Black" and Riddick.

Even though it is a starter set it spends a proper part on differentiating each Commonwealth and the reason why they all band together despite their differences under their Battleship, the Black Zephyr. The introduction goes smoothly and the reader is half-way reading the adventure without much effort. It has the expected search for supplies, survive in the extraterrestial wilds filling your space pockets and having your hands full with what you can get. It also gives the players many opportunities for contact or combat with alien species of wildlife and civilized societies.

I also liked the approach of the Lexicon within the adventure. It gives the feeling of being part of a ship's crew that sets on alien planets and explores the uncharted areas of the galaxies. Thus both Players and Gamemasters are initiated in the feeling of the game smoothly. I look forward to getting more content on FRONTIER and what the fate of the Black Zephyr will be!

FRONTIER - Black Zephyr
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/08/2016 11:02:00

Out of 52 pages, 45 are the content. Quite similar to WEG's D6 sysyetm, but using D8's instead. Page 18 is handy, as it shows the meaning of the dice icons. Having played Star Wars D6 some time ago, this system seems a little familiar.

It does show some promise.

Artwork: hand drawn, seems OK.

Frontier describes 'The Commonwealth', with it's 9 peoples.

There is a red border on most of the pages that might use up a bit of the ink (at a guess).

There are 6 character sheets at the back (5 pre-made for the adventure, and 1 blank).

A recommended purchase.

This is one fresh and promising Space Fantasy RPG with a simple game system and a world ready to expand in lore. Can't wait to get my hands on a printed version.
