FARSIGHT GAMES PRESENTS
A SIMPLE SPACE ADVENTURE TTRPG
United Kingdom, Earth, 17.08.2023 – Farsight Games is happy to present a new and simple science fiction action tabletop roleplaying game, DEEP SPACE.
Blast across the stars and explore the universe in this simple 4-page rules light roleplaying game. All you need is paper, pencils and a D12 or two.
100 years into our future, humanity has discovered how to harness the power of a singularity, put it into an engine and use it to hurl themselves across space to far-off worlds and star systems. The Singularity Engine helped us slip the surly bonds of Earth.
But we took our problems with us. The nations of the Earth did not unite in exploration as expected, but instead spread their ideology and petty squabbles across the stars. After the brutal Stellar War ended with a new anti-matter bomb decimating an entire planet, an arms race began... and now a new Cold War has descended on humanity.
Inspired by the book covers of science fiction novels of the 1960s, 70s and 80s, DEEP SPACE takes gaming groups into the farthest reaches of space in the year 2145 where they can play any kind of character they wish; play as traders, mercenaries, spies, scientists, whatever you wish, all against the backdrop of political and military instability as nations vie against each other in a new Cold War under the threat of anti-matter annihilation. Along with a system to design and build simple starships, star systems and everything a session will need for a fun, fast and action-packed game, the core book of DEEP SPACE alone is enough to get things going.
Using a simple D12 mechanic with a roll low below a skill level for success or a roll high in an opposed roll situation, the game is easy to learn and easier to teach. Why? Because the game is just 4 pages long!
In those four pages you get character creation, rules, starships and vehicles, NPCs, aliens, a star system generator and some ideas on how to run a game of DEEP SPACE. That’s a lot of punch for a small game!
But there’s more! Following on from the core rulebook are four adventures for an evening or two’s play, and three supplements detailing the background of the setting as well as expanded rules for starships and equipment. Each of these booklets are 2 pages long with plenty of detail and there’s more to come!
Each of these games is just 1 British Pound, and for that you get a full game system and extras that can keep you entertained for weeks, as well as provide the groundwork for groups to build their own science fiction settings and adventures.

EXPLORING GOLF ALPHA TANGO - A DEEP SPACE ADVENTURE
Wednesday 2 August 2023
'Look, we’ve got a weird one here and the DSSV Right Stuff is the only ship in the vicinity that can get there in a decent amount of time. There’s a research station called Greylight in the Eta Vultura system orbiting a barren red planetoid doing all kinds of secret work for Cambridge-Wallace, and it’s gone dark.
Cambridge-Wallace are eager to have a salvage ship go and collect the station. They’ve neglected to give us full details of the mission. All they’re saying is that the station doesn’t communicate any more and they want it investigated, possibly salvaged, with all pods present and no questions asked.'
'The ED-WARD Report' is an official adventure for 'Those Dark Places Industrial Science Fiction Roleplaying' published by Osprey Games.
