Dawning Star: Fate of Eos sci-fi RPG up on Kickstarter now

Dawning Star the sci-fi RPG powered by the Fate Core gaming system is up on Kickstarter and looking for funding.


From the campaign:

Grab your EDF laser rifle! The critically acclaimed Dawning Star setting gets a total relaunch, using the Fate Core system.
A re-energized version of the award-winning sci-fi RPG, using the brand new Fate™ Core rules by Evil Hat Productions.

The human spirit shines greatest during the darkest of times. Never was this proven more fully than in the year 2196. With certain doom hurtling toward our planet, the free countries of the world united and prepared for a mass exodus aboard a score of gargantuan transports. But our escape was just the beginning of the adventure. By some freak occurrence, our ship, the Dawning Star, was sent shooting across the galaxy. We found ourselves alone, cut off from the fleet, in alien territory. It was not in our nature to give up. We found a habitable planet and began our new life. In the intervening years, we have encountered strange new species, overcome dire threats, and taken the first few steps in building a new life.

We wrote those words in 2005 when we released the first full-scale sci-fi setting using the d20 Future rules from Wizards of the Coast. We followed this up with the largest sci-fi setting book ever published, Helios Rising. Dawning Star enjoyed both critical and commercial success. More importantly, people were having fun with it, creating amazing stories at the table with their friends. Freedom League scrappers plumbing the depths of mysterious ruins for alien artifacts; saurian monks beating back the emperor’s Blood Guard at the gates of the monastery; heart-stopping space battles with the merciless vaasi horde.
