Once in the ancient past (okay, the 1980s and early 1990s) there was an RPG that set the standard for cinematic science fiction gaming. Many gamers got their start with this system only to see it fade away somewhat in recent years. Now in the year 2011, OpenD6 returns to the stage to bring Astral Empires: The Roleplaying Game to life!
In the Astral Empires RPG Technology Guide players and GMs alike are given insight into the various advancements of the 10,000 AD era. Included are chapters on equipment, weapons, basic starship design, space travel, along with Ship Recognition Displays of twelve different fleets (including the Gladitorial Axis, Albaron Star Kingdom, Zakaji Protectorate, Primean Commonwealth, Colonial Union, Jaenovian Republic, Regellian Federation, Vorwin Star Vikings, Sarlicon Confederacy, J'Garan Expeditionary Force, Promedian Remnant, and Maavus Cluster Alliance).
