Shadows Over Sol is a dark sci-f RPG published by Tab Creations in 2016. Since then, the game has had thirteen adventures, five supplements, seven accessories and a full campaign. Jovian Whispers is a campaign and a sourcebook for it.
Inspired by stories like James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse, Clarke’s Space Odyssey, Alien and the Terminator, the Kickstarter campaign asked for $2,000. With 17 days left, at the time of writing, the project has twice that in pledges. You can see the latest total and join in from the pitch page.
Curious? Tab Creations has a 64-page Shadows Over Sol: Quick Start that’s free to download and revised thanks to the Shadows Over Sol: Siren’s Call Kickstarter.
Jovian Whispers is a campaign and sourcebook for the Shadows Over Sol roleplaying game. It follows up on the mystery of the Jupiter Group Incident, in which all four Jovian colonies went suddenly and inexplicably silent.
No one knows the cause of this mysterious event, but somewhere in the dark and ruined colonies of Jupiter the Insurrection Virus uses its clanking machines to plot the downfall of all humanity…
Any RPG that’s successfully produced so many supplements from Kickstarters is doing something right.
There’s also a Patreon from Tab Creations, which supports the game. There are two dozen or so backers in that. It looks like a cost-effective way to get future adventures and supplements if you adopt the game.

- A flexible campaign of five core scenarios and numerous side quests.
- Details on the Jovian colonies and the Jupiter Group Incident
- The secrets of the Insurrection Virus
