Adamant Entertainment has launched Star System: Every Star A Destination which marks the return of several prominent writers to the D6 system.
The team has been led by Eric S. Trautmann, the former West End Games creative director for the Star Wars RPG.
Trautmann is the current Adamant Entertainment creative director too.
- Bill Smith (Line Editor, The Star Wars Roleplaying Game.)
- Peter Schweighofer (Editor, The Star Wars Adventure Journal.)
- Timothy S. O’Brien (Pirates & Privateers.)
- Drew Campbell (Cynabar’s Fantastic Technology: Droids.)
- Gareth-Michael Skarka (D6 Space: Ships.)
- Michael Kogge (Star Wars Adventure Journal.)
- Wayne Humfleet (Heroes & Rogues.)
Every Star A Destination is an adventure anthology and the first in a new line of space-fantasy releases in Adamant’s new Star System line. Star System is intended to be compatible with any classic D6 game.
Visit scenic Tekazzil, home to a royal society that views laws as optional and profit as king; slog through alien jungles in search of an ancient artifact… and the lunatic who hopes to find it first; battle octopoid pirates above the gas giant Arx; try to survive an ancient ghost ship trapped in a ruined sector of space; witness the fearsome might and utter horror of a planet of bureaucrats; avoid being caught in the fatal crossfire between vicious university academics; battle for survival against a brutal race, long believed to be extinct; and join a rag-tag fleet of xenoecologists as they attempt to preserve a pod of galactic leviathans…
There’s a catch though. Trautmann’s business partner at Adamant, the founder of the company and co-writer of Star System: Every Star A Destination is Gareth-Michael Skarka.
Starka is about nine years late on the Kickstarter Far West, a Western/Wuxia Mashup.
In all of 2019, there was one update which promised he’d release the game as is. There’s been no sign of life on the Kickstarter in 2020.
This blogger is one of the 717 backers and can see the comments on the project. Why is Skarka’s Adamant releasing Star System: Every Star A Destination instead of Far West?
There might be an excellent answer to that. Perhaps Star System is needed to reboot Adamant’s financial or creative reserves. The ball might start rolling again. Maybe. It’s not surprising to see why some people are concerned, though!
