Strange new worlds and deadly aliens? Many Worlds, One Game: The Alternity Core Rulebook includes a wealth of campaign-building guidance and a modular rules design so that you can model your favorite SF setting or create your own.

We’re also launching with one “pre-built” setting, our Ruoes universe. We plan to unlock at least one more setting through our stretch goals for the project.

InBill Slavicsek and Richard Ruoes created the original Alternity game—a powerful tabletop RPG engine for science fiction adventure across a wide range of genres. But don’t wait for the Kickstarter to finish!

The Beta release includes an overview of the rules, an introductory scenario, and a sample adventure. We’ll be collecting feedback from testers and backers throughout the coming weeks to make Alternity awesome!

Want to see more about the development process? Visit our website at: The Alternity game system features atlernity modular toolkit that you can use to build great characters and adventures in your favorite sci-fi universe—or in a universe of your own creation. It starts with the Alterntiy Core Rulebooka 1-volume hardbound book that covers character creation, futuristic altternity, and adventure design, and includes a selection of dangerous aliens and villainous adversaries, as well as guidelines for building the universe that you want to run.

This page, full-color book is available as a PDF and as a digest-sized hardbound. This campaign overview and adventure anthology introduces you to the universe of the Protostar setting, one exciting episode at a time! The Shipyard provides you with rules for advanced ship-on-ship combat, an innovative ship design rules set, and new talents and skill uses for characters looking for an edge in space battles.

What would sci-fi be without aliens for the heroes to encounter, battle, or bargain with?

Protostar Deluxe Map Pack: This pack includes a star map of the Protostar universe, as well as reference cards for the GM that provide handy access to charts and tables need an NPC name on the fly? As a printed sourcebook, the map pack includes a poster of the star map and cardstock reference cards. As we press through our stretch goals, we’ll add new sourcebooks and make the existing ones even bigger! This sourcebook details dozens of allies and adversaries for you to use in your Alternity adventures.

When we get this far, we’ll create a new set of adventures set in another brand-new setting. We’ll get your feedback on the genre – whether it’s dark alien conspiracy, post-apocalyptic wastelands, or some other cool universe, and make an episodic adventure anthology based in that setting.


Much like the Protostar Mission Guide, this stretch goal will be Season 1 of a brand new story! Set as a special stretch goal to see if we could get 10k in pledges in the final 48 hours of the campaign, this amount unlocks the Protostar Deluxe Map Pack, described in the Sourcebooks section above.

Setting 2 Equipment Supplement. Like the previous stretch goal, this PDF includes gear more closely aligned with our Setting Two campaign. It’ll be a stand-alone PDF and also available as a sourcebook. If we keep climbing, we’ll unlock even more stretch goals, including new settings, maps, and sourcebooks!

While we don’t have t-shirts or coffee mugs to offer rulew add-ons, we can accommodate backers that would like to include additional copies of our books with their reward. To include an add-on, increase your pledge by the appropriate amount, and in the post-kickstarter survey we’ll alternit which additional books you want us to send to you.

We’ve been working on Alternity for a while now, and we formally announced our efforts at Gen Con But we’re not creating Alternity in a vacuum. Earlier this year, we released an Alpha test to hundreds of playtesters, and collected feedback on some of our core subsystems.

We discussed our playtesting approach in a blog post on our website. Even now, our rulss download atlernity the Alternity rules is still a Beta test, and we’ll continue to get important data on how the game plays through our surveys and responses to these rules.

As we move further into the campaign, we’ll solicit even more feedback from Alternity backers, which will help shape the Alternity game and product line into something special. We’ve done our best to properly estimate shipping charges in the pledge levels.

Our final shipping solution will ultimately depend upon the number of shipments we need to make. While domestic shipping is easy and reasonably priced, we understand that international shipping is cumbersome and expensive.

We’ve done our best to account for realistic shipping costs. If we rues enough backers, we’ll engage a fulfillment company to provide shipments, which could positively rulfs international shipping costs, or at least customs fees. They have a UK-based printer, so shipments would originate from within the UK and potentially avoid many of the customs fees associated with an international shipment.

The book would be nearly identical to our domestically printed books such books would have no ISBN barcode, and we have to leave the last page blank.


Our Alternity team includes the creators of the original game published by TSR. You can learn more about us and our products at www. Bill Slavicseklead designer of the original Alternity game, consulted and advised in the creation of this new version of the game. We are very confident about our ability to deliver the Core Rulebook in a timely fashion; however, minor delays in delivery or modest changes in format are possible.


We’ll be sure to keep you informed about any delays we run into. While we’re well along in design and development of the core Alternity system, we are waiting to undertake some remaining design work until we see that it is likely that funding will be successful we still have some aliens and starships to design.

We also must wait on funding before we commission art for the books. We plan to use a domestic US printer for the Alternity hardcover book. We’ve used this printer before for multiple projects, so we expect no issues. Depending on the quantity required, we’ll use the same printer for our softcover books or we’ll go with OneBookShelf’s on-demand printing. We’ve successfully run three Kickstarter projects. We successfully launched the Primeval Thule Campaign Setting through Kickstarter, then later added a 5e version of Primeval Thule with a second Kickstarter.

We have also just shipped the final component of our Ultimate Scheme board game. We know how to make great games and we’re familiar with the Kickstarter process, and we’re ready to move ahead with Alternity! Questions about this project? Check out the FAQ. Thanks for your support!

As a ranger, you’ll be able to participate in backer commentary and discussion, and you’ll get updates throughout the duration of the project.

Softcover books will ship separately from the hardcover. The core rulebook hardcover, all the PDFs, and a softcover copy of each sourcebook we produce, including all applicable stretch goals!
