2nd Edition Science Fiction Roleplaying Game
Red Shift is a complete
science-fiction roleplaying game system. It uses the Destiny Engineâ„¢, a game
engine that is used for all of Grendel Roleplayingâ€™s core games. This allows you
to use the characters you create in many different settings. Red Shift is
designed to be playable by those who have never played a roleplaying game
before, and yet still have the complexity that experienced players desire. This
book contains all the information you need to play.
The basic concept of Red Shift is
that after approximately nine hundred years of exploration, colonization, and
war, mankind has spread out into all of the star systems near Earth. The great
colony ships set out to find new and better worlds than our poor Earth, and
hopefully not to make the same mistake of destroying the ecosystem with
pollution and war. Many of them were lost among the unforgiving stars.
Humans once had a great empire that
spanned many light years, but it has now collapsed. A new hope has sprung from
the seed they planted, and now we are just starting to rediscover our lost
worlds, and our destiny in the stars. The young Earth Federation faces many
challenges in trying to unite the Human race. Many of the planets in the galaxy
are already claimed by other races. They are very possessive.
Your task will be to play a character in
and just outside of the Earth Federation Frontier. The Frontier is the mostly
lawless outer territories of the Earth Federation. There are many opportunities
for adventure. You can play as a Human, or one of the other races of the known
galaxy. The possibilities are endless.
