Description: This is a project to develop a retro-sci-fi version of Star Frontiers, set in the early years of the Frontier.

Search In Project   

Before Star Law and the Federation...

Before the Sathar menace...

There was an age of unimaginable dreams...

An age of unimaginable discoveries!

This is the early era of the Frontier, where the races are still getting use to each other, new worlds are getting settled, the technology is a little more primitive, and even without the Sathar, dangers still lurk around every corner. The basic theme with this sub-setting is a retro sci-fi feel, with rocket-ships, silver spacesuits with fishbowl helmets, and fancy rayguns. This setting needs not be set by establish canons, as this is a universe without a foreseeable destiny - shaped by the countless adventurers that dared to brave the void in search of fame, fortune, or a new future!

Good idea for a project.
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

I have been considering this a lot lately, even had my own idea for a retro sci-fi setting I was calling Retro-Runner which I still may use here in some capacity. The good thing is we don't need to drastically modify any of the existing alpha dawn rules. Simply we only need to date back the tech and add a few limitations that weren't present in alpha dawn to make it ago. We could do this outside Canon but it really isnt necessary. When you look at Alpha Dawn, its already heavily influneced by Retro Sci-Fi so its not a stretch to just mod it to a early setting. I think its a good idea and an easy transition.

Retro is Go!
