Default [Zozer Games] Orbital 2100


ORBITAL 2100 is available on DriveThruRPG and as a softback on Lulu. It has a realistic (TL 9) feel that is set within our own solar system. The Earth us locked in a Cold War with the people of Luna. Both face off, 400,000 km apart, threatening mutual annihilation whilst they compete to colonise the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Older colonies such as Mars and Mercury are independent and caught up in this struggle for solar system supremacy. Spacecraft use nuclear thermal rockets and create gravity by spinning pods or centrifuges, this is spaceflight as envisaged today! In keeping with the near-future and hard-science fiction themes, role-playing campaigns focus on real people doing real jobs. The game has rules, technology and advice to allow scenarios based around deep space haulage, asteroid mining, salvage, rescue and exploration.

This '2100' revision adds construction rules for orbital vehicles (like Soyuz) and for launch rockets (like Ares, Titan, Energia, etc.) The spacecraft design system is reorganized and crucial tweaks made. Hit location and damage tables have been added that properly reflect the fragile nature of TL 9 spacecraft (we've all seen Gravity, haven't we?!). Finally, and probably most importantly, the rules are compatible with Cepheus Engine and 1st edition Mongoose Traveller. Traveller references have been excised due to changes in the licensing agreements. However, the setting material is unchanged. Previous customers of the first edition of Orbital have been sent a 50% discount code through DriveThruRPG to reflect this fact. If you were not signed up to accept DriveThru emails, please get in touch with your watermarked product number!
