Strange Stars Game Setting Book Is Out!

I am happy to share with the Fate community the news that Trey Causey's Strange Stars Game Setting Book is now available in print and PDF. If you like the DK Star Wars books, you will LOVE Strange Stars, because it has a similar design sensibility. It is art-driven world building, in which stunning images are used to bring to life and draw people in to a great new roleplaying setting!

Something old: Strange Stars draws on many themes from classic space opera RPGs and SF.

Something new: Strange Stars is equally informed by posthuman SF, but grounded in a setting that is accessible and coherent, and where choices still have consequences.

What's up next?

TWO game system books are coming out for Strange Stars: one for the superb old school SF RPG Stars Without Number, and one for my own favorite RPG, Fate Core.

In fact, I am putting the finishing touches on the text for the Strange Stars Fate System Edition book this week, and then it's off for editing and layout!

You can visit the blog From the Sorcerer's Skull for updates about the forthcoming products, and visit the Strange Stars Index to learn more about the setting.

So give the Strange Stars a look, and if you're in the Twin Cities, please come to Con of the North in February and play the game in Fate!


  1. I assume it's no coincidence that the cover illustration is a pretty direct take on the old Star Frontiers RPG book covers (three figures, lots of guns, ship or vehicle in the background, triangular composition.

    1. A lot of folks are picking up on the same visual vibe! Sorry to say that I only picked up Star Frontiers in November, so the prior visual hasn't been kicking around in the back of my head for a couple of decades! I like it as-is, but I also enjoy seeing people pick up on all the Easter eggs that Trey has hidden for us!
