COSMIC QUEST - A supplement for the Those Dark Places RPG AVAILABLE NOW!





Those Dark Places was conceived and written as a dark sci-fi roleplaying game, where players faced the dangers and horrors of working in deep space. I was emulating my favourite dark science fiction of the 1970s and 1980s.

However, I also have a deep love for other kinds of science fiction, especially the kind where adventures take place on treks into unexplored space (wink wink). Where heroes can fight against the darkness, or bring hope to those who have none, or further the boundaries of mankind. These characters and adventures bring light to the dark places of the universe.

This supplement contains rules and ideas for your Those Dark Places games if you 
don’t want to explore the bleak corporate-ravaged future of the core rulebook and prefer to travel the stars in brightly lit starships to experience the adventure, excitement and thrill of exploring new worlds, strange or not (nudge nudge).

Cosmic Quest is a handbook to help you use the core rules of Those Dark Places for exciting games of stimulating exploration, exciting combat and heroic deeds.

You can create characters exactly the same way as you normally would using the core rules, but there are some adjustments to make. As this is more of a high adventure game the PCs will be tougher and more capable, as well as be able to shrug off danger and possibly cheat death.

This supplement doesn’t come with a setting, but a galaxy where a collection of like-minded worlds exploring the frontiers of space comes to mind.
