Description Edit | History

From the back of the book:

Humans have been in space tens of thousands of years, and societies have risen and fallen so many times that no one remembers where we come from.

Colonies are grouped in clusters of a few systems connected by slipstreams – artifacts of the cosmos or perhaps a forgotten technology. Only the slipstreams allow travel faster than light. Apart from that, spacecraft make do with reaction drives, dumping heat as best they can.

Diaspora is a self-contained role-playing game, with rules for starship battles, individual combat, social interaction, and platoon-scale engagement, in an original science fiction setting that you help design.

This is your universe. How are you going to survive?

More Information Edit | History

Diaspora is a stand-alone game that uses the FATE version 3 engine from Spirit of the Century. It consists of substantial simplification and modification of the SotC core (reducing the Stunts system, for example, to four pages) and the addition of several mini-games that can be run as independent wargames external to the RPG itself. Of particular interest is the platoon-scale wargame which provides a complete miniatures sf/armour game using story-driving elements rather than simulation.

8 Diaspora Cluster Sheet MKI
Sheet for keeping track of cluster details with an octagonal theme. There are two pages in case a cluster gets large. I tried to leave enough room to draw the slipstream links, but also included a space to write the names of linked systems in case that poses a problem, or if there need be overlap to another page.

14 Diaspora Starship Sheet
I like the player character sheets for Diaspora, but was sorry to see there wasn't one for starships (in essence, another character at the table) - so I created one.
