The Ephemeris RPG core rulebook

The year is 2185. The human race has gone to the stars, and found that they’re not alone. Local space is teeming with civilizations, some hostile, some friendly, and some indifferent. This is the universe of Ephemeris.

Ephemeris is a game of galactic trade and galactic conquest; of inter-species conflict and cooperation. Ephemeris is a science fiction role playing game. Here you will be able to take on the role of your favorite alien species and your favorite class. You will be able to trade, fight, negotiate, conquer, whatever you’d like to do with your fellow players. You can play the role of an Althani Trader, or maybe an Arbonix Cyber Wizard, or maybe even a Human Nanist. You can create a party made up entirely of one species and set out to upset the trade routes of a rival species. Or maybe you want to create a party with a variety of races that preys upon the trading routes of the various civilizations. Or maybe you want to explore the ancient ruins on long dead planets, ruins that clearly show that there were other species roaming the spaceways in the past…but where are they now? You can fight in great wars, negotiate grand peace treaties, and explore sections of the galaxy that no sentient has ever explored. Or maybe your party has joined with one of the interplanetary corporations; corporations whose motives are never entirely clear. These are just some of the possibilities open to you. The universe of Ephemeris is yours to do with as you please. What you now hold in your hands are the basic guidelines for the games. Here you’ll find the races, classes, abilities, skills, weapons, and ships that allow you to create your own Ephemeris universe.

Now, step inside for the greatest science fiction adventure you’ve ever been on…

The Derelict Ship of the Ancients by J Alan Erwine
A ship of unknown origins has been discovered drifting in the space between the Althani and Culthan sectors of space. As the ship is in what is "technically" considered to be neutral space, the Althani and the Culthan are aggressively negotiating what should be done with the ship. While they're negotiating, others have taken it upon themselves to investigate the ship without the blessing of either of the governments. Your party is one of these groups. You know that both governments might come after you because of what you're about to do, and you also know that you won't be the only group trying to discover the secrets of this ship, but it doesn't matter. It's a ship from the past, and you have no idea of what you might discover on the ship...and that alone makes it worth the risk.
An Ephemeris adventure for 4-6 characters of 6th-9th levels.
