Last Fleet Sci-Fi RPG Up On Kickstarter

It'd be cool to take a tour of the galaxy in a huge fleet of starships. You get to see what's out there and really explore the universe. However, if you're out there because civilization has been overrun and you're fleeing a force looking to eradicae mankind, that'd put a damper on things. However, that's exactly where you find yourself in Last Fleet, a new sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

The last of humanity are fleeing across space, pursued by the implacable inhuman adversary that destroyed their civilisation. They're outnumbered and outgunned. Supplies are running low. The actions of a brave few could be all that stands between humanity and extinction.

Welcome to the Last Fleet.

Last Fleet is a tabletop roleplaying game where you play brave pilots, officers, engineers, politicians and journalists struggling to hold the human race - and themselves - together under unbelievable pressure. The game focuses on action, intrigue and drama in this high-stakes situation. You'll fight space battles, search for enemy infiltrators, tackle supply shortages and navigate faction politics. You'll strive against your own self-doubt and sometimes crack under the stress.

The game provides support to create your own evocative setting, or you can play out of the box as the survivors of the Interplanetary Commonwealth. This fractious alliance of planets was wiped out by the Corax - an extradimensional fungus network that dwells in the tenebrium, the same medium that FTL ships travel through. The Corax attack through spatial rifts, launching spore ships to harry the fleet. Victims are paralysed and have their genetic and neural patterns harvested: everything you know, the Corax now know. And worse, your former friends may see you again, reincarnated as a Corax avatar. 

The campaign is already up and over its funding goal with 25 days left to go.
