Description Edit | History

From the front cover:

You are the master of your destiny, venturing across the sea of stars meeting the challenge of alien worlds...

UNIVERSE

The Role-Playing Game of the Future by SPI

From the back cover:

Seek your own destiny among the stars in quest of wealth, knowledge, and glory. Plunge boldly into adventures on unexplored planets, confronting the unknown armed with your own unique skills and the marvels of 25th Century technology. Designed as the definitive game of a whole generation of science-fiction adventure products, Universe is now complete in this one book, with a huge full-color Interstellar Display and four pages of color adventure logsheets included. Although we are continuing a program of fascinating supplemental material, you need nothing more than this book and two decimal dice to play a lifetime of complete and enjoyable games.
