HELIOS IS RISING!
Dawning Star: Helios Rising is the highly anticipated follow-up to the critically acclaimed and ENnie-nominated science-fiction campaign setting from Blue Devil Games. Dawning Star remains the best reviewed and best supported sci-fi setting built on d20 Modern and powered by d20 Future. This product presents one chapter from that upcoming product but is, itself a stand-alone planetary resource.
A barren, cratered planet, Hephaestus is utterly inhospitable on its surface. Hot, without atmosphere, and bereft of any shelter, there is little obvious reason to visit the planet, though there are several less than obvious reasons. Beneath the surface of Hephaestus lies one of the largest remaining constructions of the Star Confederation in the Helios system. Once, the carved out center of Hephaestus served as a jail, but now it is a war zone.
Designed for the Dawning Star setting but usable in most any sci-fi campaign, this chapter alone includes:A full description of the major locations on the planet with adventure seeds.Brand new talent trees, occupations, feats, and classes.Tons of weapons, armor, and gear.Strange, new xenomorphs, including five species of nanite colonies.
