As is tradition, DriveThruRPG has a brand new sale to mark the start of 2015. The “New Year, New Game” sale is a favourite of mine for two reasons;
- Over 200 RPGs that are 15% off
- A real push to persuade gamers to try a new game
Gamers who are willing to try new games are really helping to keep the industry going.
One of the biggest bargains in the sale is Mongoose Publishing’s 2300AD RPG (revised). The game normally costs $30 and with the 15% it drops to just over $25.
The 2300AD RPG is set in a hard science world. Humankind is in a struggle to maintain footholds in more than 20 alien worlds. It some some 300 years since close brush with with an apocalyptic scenario and mankind has had to take to stars. We’ve discovered that we’re not alone.
The aliens are a constant presence and the colonists in the frontier worlds struggle.
2300AD features a richly developed hard SF universe, with the only faster-than-light drive available – the stutterwarp – a real violation of science as we know it. Across the worlds encounters with airships, helicopters and even hovercraft are common. The book includes expanded character generation rules, an impressive collection of world maps, cybernetics, genetic-engineering and with the revision there are new aliens, weapons, armour, vehicles and spacecraft.
Tempted? DriveThruRPG’s sale finishes on January 12th and until then you can pick up 2300AD Core Rulebook Revised at the reduced price.
