Note: Apologies to anyone looking forward to a new Thursdays in Thracia this week. Unfortunately we had to cancel our last session, so this week and next I’ll be posting other stuff. We’ll be getting back to it after that!
Originally released in 2011, Kevin Crawford’s Role Playing Game, Stars Without Number, has earned a reputation as a great toolkit for sandbox style science fiction gaming. Anywhere someone asks for sci-fi game recommendations online, Stars Without Number is mentioned quickly and frequently in the responses.
This year, after a successful Kickstarter, Crawford released a revised edition of the game, making a variety of changes and updates, big and small. I can’t say much about the original, as I’ve never played it, but I’m six sessions into my Revised Edition campaign, and can’t wait to run it again.
