For several months now there's been a hole in out gaming shelf where my Hostile setting book has been & today it got filled by Paul Elliot's Hostile Rules hardback. Because of the shipping crisis the book has been taking longer to get here. But its a thing of beauty & ruin for our Hostile rpg players.
The fact is that beneath the veneer of a Sci Fi horror 2d6 rpg is a game of exploration & much more. Because combat runs on the Modern War rpg engine things are much more deadly then the players are expecting. Combat is a real affair with your PC's lives hanging in the balance. So players have to consider their every move when just about everything is trying to kill your PC. Space is deadly, the corporations don't have your best interests at heart. The android in the corner may have more principles then its makers or it could be a killer. The latest updates from the Corporation could cost so much more of your life. And let's not mention how deadly space actual is.
