Sol-Tau is a solar system in a faraway galaxy, inhabited by technologically-advanced races who, for several centuries, lived in peace.

That is until the Iods came.

30 years ago the Iods conquered and subdued Sol-Tau and, after having established a military dictatorship and exploited all possible resources, they are ready to rip off all the remaining energy within the solar system with a mysterious mega-machine called “the Hrax” - a device that will be thrown at the system’s twin suns, snuffing it out, to fuel their gargantuan Arcaship and allow them to set sail towards another solar system to conquer and exploit.

The time for the final solution is, unfortunately, at hand. But a secret society, guided by an obscure prophecy, is at work to save Sol-Tau. All they need is a crew of unwitting heroes to do the most important part of the job!

book1

Guardians of Sol-Tau is a sci-fi adventure for 3-6 Seasoned characters, designed to be played in one or two sessions packed full of action!

It only requires the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition book and, optionally, the Aces High supplement to play highly cinematographic space dogfights. Don’t have Aces High? Check THIS BUNDLE we’ve made for you!

Aces

Guardians of Sol-Tau is a light-hearted space romp adventure, where unwitting heroes become involved in a desperate mission to save their solar system from destruction and possibly put an end the Iods’ tyranny forever.

The story unfolds through eight scenes with several different rules subsystems in action:

  • Networking

  • Social Conflict

  • Chase

  • Dramatic Task

  • Quick Encounter

  • Interlude

  • and of course Combat!

making it the perfect adventure for new players and GMs to explore or learn all the possibilities of the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition rules!

book2

Guardians of Sol-Tau includes:

  • A flamboyant space adventure

  • 6 pregenerated Seasoned characters, complete with background and gear, and designed for maximum interaction with the story!

  • A list of musical soundtrack suggestions

  • A printer friendly version

  • Tokens for the Player Characters and the most important opponents and spacecrafts!

  • An appendix to help you adapt the story and rules to play with younger players!


Are you ready to save Sol-Tau?

I just skimmed it, so I don't want to write a review yet, but here are my first impressions:

+ Interesting movie like story
+ A fast paced, one or two session adventure, with everything you need included
+ Unusual, but great layout / graphic design

- I don't like the visible watermarks on every page
- The layout works great in print (there is no print option) but as a PDF it only works with two pages side-by-side view
- The story and the presentation is too good for this short adventure, as in you'd probably want more.
- This is not really important, but Jace has a pistol in his image, but an SMG in his description

All in all seems great if you are into sci-fi. I would definitely buy a version of this with a longer Plot Point Campaign. It could be a prelude to this conclusion or show us what happens in the system later.

Thanks A LOT for the feedback!
Yes, layout is intended for two-pages view on horizontal screens.
We worked hard to design a presentation that packed the most gaming information and actually playable story without engulfing the GM with loads of text, and tried to make all possible options, story branches and outcomes easy to read and to run for the GM.
As regards the story, we wanted to produce something close to the epicness of Pinnacle's Plot Point Campaigns, while compressing it into a scenario that you could play in three sessions or four at most. And I think Andrea really hit that mark with the Iod's menace!
As of now, we're considering the idea of making a new adventure, with a different setting, but with the same premises and production values!

Format
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.
