CHTHONIAN STARS PDF

That was actually the first word I said after laying my eyes upon this fine book. Chthonian Stars totally took my surprise and I mean this in a good way. Wildfire is actually the same company that was responsible for the award-winning CthulhuTech. As you all well know I am a huge fan of everything remotely Lovecraft-related and I love SF and space opera games. The Chthonian Stars campaign is set into a near future where humanity has started to colonize the solar system.

That was actually the first word I said after laying my eyes upon this fine book. Chthonian Stars totally took my surprise and I mean this in a good way. Wildfire is actually the same company that was responsible for the award-winning CthulhuTech. As you all well know I am a huge fan of everything remotely Lovecraft-related and I love SF and space opera games. The Chthonian Stars campaign is set into a near future where humanity has started to colonize the solar system.

The closer this Chthonian Star gets the more unspeakable horrors start to awake. Formerly dead moons develop alien ecosystems, people go missing all over the solar systems, terrifying things stir in the dark void of space.

The players are Wardens, sent out by the Unified World Council, to learn everything about this new threat to humanity and fight it where ever possible.

But as in any good Lovecraftian campaign things are looking not good for humanity…. The setting is described in a lot of detail and the great artwork help you to get a feel for what life in is like.

The book also contains a couple of short stories set into the Chthonian Stars universe. If you intend to run a game using this setting you definitely should not miss them.

Every planet of the solar system is explained in all details and should give players and the GM a good overview of what the solar system is like in Chthonian Stars. But of course, the book is not all fluff. Chapter 3 details the character creation method which is a slightly modified version of Travellers point allocation method. There are also new Advantages and Disadvantages that help to flesh out the characters.

Chthonian Stars contains new rules for Horror Checks and Madness, since we all know that no game inspired by H. Lovecrafts works could exist without them. There are also additional rules for exotic environments and tips on making combats a bit less deadly. Traveller is already pretty deadly as it is, and the designers of Chthonian Stars obviously thought it might be a bit too lethal when you add Mythos creatures to the mix.

And the book actually contains quite a few of those. The chapter about spaceships is quite extensive and not only contains rules on how to create spaceships suited for the setting but also a couple of pre-built ships.

Each ship comes with some background information, full stats and of course a Traveller-style deck plan. As I said before, you just have to love this book. The referee chapter contains a lot of helpful tips on how to run a game using the setting and explains some of the tropes of the genre.

In a lot of ways, Chthonian Stars reminds me of CthulhuTech, which is actually a good thing. The production quality of the book is great and the Traveller rules are a good fit for the setting.

But if you are into space opera with a good dose of Lovecraftian horror, you should definitely check out Chthonian Stars. He has also worked as an English translator on the German-language Dungeonslayers role-playing game and was part of its editorial team.

Such atmospheric stripping is a likely result of proximity to a star. The remaining rocky or metallic core would resemble a terrestrial planet in many respects. Transit-timing variation measurements indicate for example that Keplerb , Keplerc and Keplerb have maximum-masses between 30 and times the mass of Earth although the actual masses could be much lower ; with radii about 2 Earth radii [2] , they might have densities larger than that of an iron planet of the same size. These exoplanets are orbiting very close to their stars and could be the remnant cores of evaporated gas giants or brown dwarfs. If cores are massive enough they could remain compressed for billions of years despite losing the atmospheric mass. As there is a lack of gaseous "hot-super-Earths" between 2.
