New Fading Suns books in Ulisses Spiele

Postby Kosh2 » Sat Feb 10, 2018 9:56 pm

My third thread about change in licenser/publishers of FS RPG books
While the original FS books were form Hollistics Design(like the PC game EFS, of course), published form 1996 to 2003, there were later change to the publisher that license form Holisitic

  • First went to RedBrik (2007-2012)
    viewtopic.php?f=7&t=965
    they released 2 core books (main book & technology book) and 4 adventures (later released in one PDF together) and the last Imperial Survey book (all in 2007-2008)
    And Noble Armada was licensed to Mongoose
  • Second, RedBrik license ended and the license went to FASA (2012-2016)
    viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1040
    2 core books (player & master guides) and one adventure book.
    And one Noble Armada book.
  • Third, since end of 2016, the license goes to the German company Ulisses Spiele (while FASA continues the Noble Armada license)
    Books will be released in English and German

I've always wanted to try the Fading Suns game system. I picked up a few of the older books over the years (some a week or two ago), but I've never tried to get into a game. A couple years ago I got into D&D via Roll20 and still have most of that same group playing weekly now. Base D&D lacks the interesting setting of Fading Suns, though.

Any idea where one can find a game of Fading Suns? Would be fun to try it out at least.

If you want pre-made advertures you can get one of the 4 the "shards" fron Redbrik (edited in 2007-2008, PDF only AFAIK)
  • A Road So Dark
  • Kraken's Loom
  • Ruinous Folly
  • Dead End
there is a compilaton of all of them in one volume (edited in 2011) it's what I bough
Fading Suns Shards Collection Volume One (there never were a volume Two of course)
http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/864 ... Volume-One


Other adventures compilation is the published in 2015 by fASA:

I was asking if you had any idea where Fading Suns groups gather to find new players and the like, not about the shards (though reading through those might be a good idea too). Roll20 doesn't support Fading Suns and I don't know where else might be a good place to look for players online.

Sorry, no idea. Perhaps in Fading Suns Facebook page? or in any forum?
