The Definitive Science Fiction Role Playing Game Is Here

Welcome to the Arc - an expanse of the Milky Way nearly ten thousand light years across. A century after the genetically superior human Empyreans and the alien Xhu clashed over the fate of the colonies, a galaxy of adventure awaits!

Advent Horizon is the definitive Science Fiction role playing game featuring 11 new classes, 9 races, and dozens of new skills as part of an innovative skill tree system. Fully compatible with the world's greatest role playing game, Advent Horizon includes Open Gaming License rules for ships, vehicle combat, modern weapons, and more. Advent Horizon allows you to fashion seminal heroes of Science Fiction, complete with all the rules you need to adventure in the depths of space or on alien worlds.

At over 240 pages the Core Rulebook includes everything you need to play in the Arc, or create your own futuristic setting - characters, equipment, ships, and hostile alien life.

Are there prewritten adventures that come with the game?

Is it more of a science fiction or science fantasy setting? i.e. starfinder vs say stars without number

I've just flipped through it at this point, but it seems to be more science fiction. The creator also refers to it as hard science fiction and stated he wanted to be able to play The Expanse with it.

This may be the single best 5E-derived product I've bought yet. I'm also a publisher so I can't leave a review, but I will be posting more on my blog soon (will link when its up). Everyone, this is the 5E-based SF RPG we have been waiting for.

Is this standalone game? Or do we need the worlds greatest roleplaying game?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
