Solar Echoes is a science-fiction game world set in the distant future in another region of our own galaxy. Seven alien races occupy this region of space and are only just now beginning to work together for a better future. The Inter-Stellar Union was formed to provide the seven races with peace, prosperity, and freedom. Will this alliance be able to guard against the lurking threats in unknown space, or even protect the races from themselves?
The future of the Union and the very races that formed it may depend upon the actions of the Union Guard, a highly specialized force of agents that work tirelessly to keep the universe in order. These operatives do what regional security forces cannot, and they strive to preserve the crucial balance that must exist between the races. With access to classified information from the ISU, the Union Guard is aware of a looming threat that could mean the absolute destruction of all the races if they fail to work together.
Do you have what it takes to serve in the Union Guard? The universe cannot be saved by one person alone, but through unity, you and your team may succeed in bringing stability to a universe that needs it desperately. Without unity, all may be lost.
How is Solar Echoes Different from other table-top RPG's?
No longer do you have to wait on your turn:
Players plan their movements and actions together without a prescribed turn order, and can react to anything whenever they choose. Rules are streamlined and the game is designed to move quickly. No more lengthy calculations, no more complicated die rolls--just a single opposed skill check with a little added luck from the dice determines success or failure.
The game encourages tactics and team-play:
Players will find success is achieved by actively coordinating together as a team. “Soaking up damage” is not an option because there are no large hit point pools to chew through, instantly making team tactics crucial. Every system in the game is designed to involve all players working together.
Experience a variety of gameplay challenges:
Solar Echoes involves a range of scenarios including squad combat, starship battles, car chases, and even dialogue and hacking encounters. This is all conducted under an efficient and easy to learn game system.
