2159 AD. It is a good time to be alive. The nations of the world still exist, but they have become more civilized, and we have expanded into the rest of our solar system. But, alas, it is not to be our time. Something approaches, a thing on an orbit from far away. Seemingly a large shard of dark matter, this object is known in obscure prophecy as the Chthonian Star. It is awakening things long thought lost or dead, things that have slumbered awaiting its return. The Unified World Council sends out special teams of sanctioned Wardens, whose job it is to ascertain the new threats to human life, to learn everything they can about them, and fight them wherever they are found.
From the award-winning team that brought you CthulhuTech, comes an original Lovecraftian setting that will bring to life many Cthulhu horrors for Traveller, which requires the Traveller Core Rulebook.
A few hundred years into the future, the solar system is fully colonized and players will explore the universe as familiar and original Lovecraftian horrors can be found in the setting.
Written by Christopher Dorn, Robert Glass, Matthew Grau and Fraser McKay, this 226 page setting book will introduce new rules for madness and fear, as well as optional rules for character survivability, with have new character options (advantages, disadvantages and career half-terms) and more than a dozen spaceships.
The book also comes with three pre-made adventures set in the setting.
The Chthonian Stars Core Setting is intended for a mature audience and is published by Wildfire.
The Chthonian Stars Core Setting PDF can be purchased for $15 at RPGNow and will be available for print on demand for the coming weeks. A PDF and print bundle would also be made available in the future.
