The classic sci-fi RPG Shatterzone was brought back by Precis Intermedia Games (once known as Politically Incorrect Games) first in PDF and softcover – and now in hardcover. However, this is a limited edition. This is a print run with the collectors and hardcore fans in mind.
The first Shatterzone, by West End Games, went out of print in 1997. West End Games had gone bankrupt. Shatterzone may feel a bit Star Wars-y at times. In fact, gamer legend tells us that these were ideas for the Star Wars RPG (which was produced by West End Games under license) which got the knockback from Lucasfilm’s infamous legal time.
Themes like xenophonbia and mega corporations run through Shatterzone.
Precis Intermedia describe the game as flexible and fun. The MasterDeck card deck is there to introduce subplots and complications, critical skill resolutions and others. Cybernetics and psionic powers add spice to the sci-fi setting. Shatterzone, itself, is a mysterious section of space shock full of strange phenomena.
