Free League Publishing announces Death in Space

The world is broken. In a collapsing universe, your crew is your only family. Death in Space takes you to a grimy blue-collar future in a universe filled with risk, but also opportunity. Free League Publishing and Stockholm Kartell today announced a publishing partnership for the upcoming Death in Space RPG, set to release April 26. 

Death in Space is a game about adventure and uncertain journeys out into the darkness of space, where the void whispers to the unlucky and imbues travelers’ bodies with strange powers. It is about you and your crew making a home of your spacecraft or station, your only sanctuary in a dangerous universe. Most of all, it is about surviving in an abandoned frontier system where resources are scarce, and competition is fierce.

Engage in power struggles and build your crew’s reputation. Salvage and steal to endure a ruthless universe. And above all, do anything you can to get that next job. Your life will depend on it.

The game has its roots in the OSR scene and follows similar design principles. The rules are intended to be easy to use and hack but also meant to support and introduce the game world. As for setting and tone, inspiration comes from the gritty future of early 80’s science fiction movies as well as classic westerns.

Death in Space RPG is created by Christian Plogfors and Carl Niblaeus of Stockholm Kartell. 

Death in Space RPG is now available for pre-order in the Free League Webshop. Pre-order will give immediate access to the PDF.
